Should I sell up or buy more?

I have a number of BTL flats – all fully occupied.  I bought them some time ago at around £20k then remortgaged at a later date with mortgages around £70k to fund a family home. We can hardly complain – capital growth paid for the family home – with the mortgage on the flats being......

Please advise since all legal bods are closed over weekend!  I have had a lovely tenant for 4 years, she’s a single mum, 3 kids and all housing benefit has been paid to me, no problems. Unfortunately her boyfriend has moved in without my permission. The housing benefit has halved and a top up needs......

Channel Island Landlords

I live most of the time in the Channel Islands. Contrary to the popular imagination that was given out by John Netttles in the 1980s, the Islands are accessible and easy to get into (in the right Island). There are plenty of houses available to purchase at what (compared with London) are reasonable prices.  I’ve......

Most Landlords Are Monkeys

Now before you jump down my throat, please understand the context, I am not being derogatory to my fellow landlords I promise you.  The reference to Monkeys comes from some fun with psychological profiling in a great little book written by my old friend Nigel Risner, who was arguably the most successful commercial finance broker......

We think this might be a unique problem and want some advise please.   We went to view a house which was a Care Home 18 months ago. The Care Home has moved but the property is still owned by the Care charity. We really liked the house, made an offer and the offer has been......

Relocation company requesting signed AST

A Canadian relocation company has contacted me and want to rent one of my properties.

Can anyone give......

Start of tenancy, few questions

I am a landlord and just signed tenancy agreement (with online agent and their AST).  Tenants too have signed the agreement, but they said would be depositing rent + deposit on the start day of tenancy. What happens if tenants don’t deposit on time let’s say 5pm on that day? Do I have an option......

How well do you know the person who owes you rent?

If you do find that you need to recover rent arrears from a tenant, whether commercial or residential, the more you know about them, the more likely your action is to be successful.  With residential rent arrears you will need to obtain a CCJ (county court judgment) and then transfer it to the High Court......

Tenants have no hot water or heating – their fault, my problem!

I have tenants who would not allow access for replacing a back boiler with new combi boiler and extra radiators.  Guess what …………. now the boiler is not working and they have no heating/hot water and the engineer cannot fit a new system until March due to work load.
