Will there be fewer Solicitors in the future?

In most countries there are only lawyers, the phenomenon of Solicitors and Barristers is relatively unique to the UK.  From my personal perspective, solicitors are a bit like GP’s, i.e. they offer initial consultations and refer to specialists. However, with the deregulation of many aspects of law, solicitors now have to compete. A good example...

Cutting out the middle man (Letting property without estate agents)

I am a Landlord with a small portfolio of properties in London (mostly within Zone 2). I am using the services of various estate agents but after experiencing everything from bad tenants to having to do everything myself (despite signing up for a “management service”) – to put it bluntly, I feel ripped off, and......

How to sell Freehold for late brothers estate?

MY deceased brother’s estate has a Grade 2 listed property converted into 4 separate flats all mortgaged. There are no shared parts except the garden  and all flats have separate entries. We wish to start selling off the flats, but the only information we have is that the flat freehold was in my brothers building......

Are late payment fees for rolling/expired tenancy still chargable?

Are late payment charges as stated within an AST still applicable once an AST has expired and the tenant is still in situ and not paying rent/paying late..? Probably not worth seeking formal legal advise for such a small amount that I’m concerned with so I’d thought I’d see if anyone here had any pointers........

I’m feeling a bit desperate. I separated from my husband in December 2014. Due to the nature of our break up, I decided that I’d had enough and moved myself and my children to another county.

Transferring Property from a Company and tax issues?

We are looking at mortgaging an investment property we bought towards the end of last year via our Limited Company. However, as most will be aware, there are few mortgage deals available for Limited Companies, and attract large fees and high interest rates – more so as this is our first BTL. Previously, we loaned......

The Treasury has decided that to conform to the European Mortgage Credit Directive (compulsory by 2016) all Buy to Let contracts, where the mortgage was not entered into solely for business purposes, will be defined as “consumer” loans. Hence all Let to Buy or accidental landlords will become regulated in a similar way to residential......

Broken toilets cost Landlords

RESEARCH from our landlord emergency insurers suggests that 4% of all emergency claims are due to an inoperable toilet at the rental property.  With an average claim cost of £204.82 across the board, it is no surprise that so many landlords are learning that emergency cover is essential to protect your property, finances and cash......

Capital Gains on flip and reinvestment

Firstly excellent forum, thank you.  We recently purchased a property and refurbished it to a high standard to let out.

Health and Safety in a private space

I think it would be fair to say that nobody would expect to find a Health and Safety inspection taking place inside their own private house (principal private residence).  Similarly, just as your own private garden is not a building site, I cannot imagine a situation where H&S would ever inspect / advise / impose......
