Best Two Year Fixed Rates – Buy to Let

Some of the two year fixed rate buy to let mortgages currently on offer look very good if you’re looking to improve cashflow on SVR deals or you’re refinance to release equity. I did a search using our new mortgage sourcing tool based on remortgaging a flat worth £100,000 at 75% LTV and these are......

LPA receivers causing late payments and ruining my credit rating

My partner and I had a portfolio of 15 mortgages with Mortgage Express and due to my partner (only) going into an IVA on his personal loans (not the mortgages – these had never been in arrears at all), an LPA receiver was appointed on all of the properties.  There was one line in the......

Freehold value when linked to RPI

I have a small one bed property, which is currently on a 70 year lease and I need to sell quickly. I’m in the process of negotiating a lease extension deal with my Freeholder. The deal as a whole seems quite fair at a premium of £5750 and ground rent set to £200 pa, but......

Health and safety when planning evictions

I know that many think we live in a world where “elf ‘n’ safety” has gone mad, but when you are removing large numbers of activists from a building, you’d be mad not to consider it!  We undertook a squatter / activist eviction recently from a former hospital building full of asbestos. The feedback from......

Are your properties meeting the requirements for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms?

Over the last 18 months the private rental sector has been under increased scrutiny as a result of new legislation and demands for transparency. An announcement made by Housing Minister Brandon Lewis in March of this year means that private landlords will have a legal obligation to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in......

Using a vehicle as a ‘deposit’?

I should perhaps start by saying that I operate in one of the poorest areas of the country and what goes on in the middle class rental market of the south of the country cannot be applied to how the market operates where I am.  I am renting to the bottom of the socio-economic scale......

My favourite short term lender

No broker fees!  That’s always a good starter for 10 isn’t it? You can’t deal directly with this lender but we have a small panel of “strategic partner” brokers who don’t charge arrangement fees (*conditions apply). What makes them special? They lend to private individuals, partnerships, companies, LLP’s, trusts and ex-pats Their short term...

Hello all, I have a quick question. I am a landlord and have gone through the eviction process. I had a warrant of posession which was due to be executed today. I was at the property at the appointed time but the bailiff never showed up. I rang up after 20 minutes (initially thinking bailiff......

Do all tenants have to sign the same tenancy agreement?

Hi All Question – Lease Agreements and Holding Bond  I send out to my tenants the AT5 form and lease agreements by Email.

Well my first ever eviction process has started, I’ve lasted 8 years in property without ever having to do this!  My tenant has done (and admitted to) several thousands of pounds worth of damage to the property.

Estate agent wants a bung!

I’m in a slight state of shock. An estate agent at a small, independent chain indicated to me at a viewing that if I were to ‘scratch his back’, so to speak he would help me to secure the property I went to see.  The market is fiendishly competitive. I’m not sure how taboo this......
