Negligence Stops House Sale – Need advice!!

As an interested daily reader of Property118 and seeing the professionals who utilise it, I was hoping someone could offer their opinions.

Capital Gains – Am I in Cloud Cuckoo land?

Has my tenant died?

Grounds to serve notice?

Fee for Statutory Periodic Tenancy?

I have searched high and low for a definitive answer to this question to no avail.  In a nutshell – my tenancy agreement states that I am liable to a £75 renewal fee for a new 6 month tenancy (which I won’t be paying after having read many threads on this subject). Now, I am......

Who should pay?

A client has a property at the top (3rd floor) of a building that houses a dental practice.  A lot of people use the main staircase over the other floors. The dentists are saying that the tenants caused a lot of damage carrying a sofa up and down the stairs and that they are responsible......

Rental losses or capital losses?

If I rent a property out for two/three years- and in year one had losses of say £30,000- ( due to repair work) – and each year the loss goes down – if I sell the property- what happens to the losses?  Would it be better to treat some of the building work as capital......

Modelling your property portfolio growth – is 5% annual growth reasonable?

I’m relatively new to property investing, having become an accidental landlord 6 months after buying my first property in 2006. I now have 3 properties, the last of which was the first purpose bought investment (#2 was my wifes flat which we’ve kept).  I am very goal driven, so I’ve had a go at forecasting......

I am an owner of several properties. In the past I have worked for a small organisation supporting persons with mental ill health in my own and my company’s private accommodation. In 2012 it was decided that we would cease our contract with local government because of increasing paperwork and returns and reduction in contract......

My wife and I have 3 properties in Malta which we rent out – we’ve recently had a baby, and are not sure what to do next in order to position ourselves best for the future.  At the moment, we live in the UK, but may move to Malta at some point (say within the... Read...

Landlords are making more use of the Section 21 Accelerated procedure

Since Landlord Action started in 1999, which incidentally is also the year the Section 21 accelerated procedure was introduced, we have never had so many instructions from landlords and letting agents wishing to proceed to court to obtain possession orders under Section 21. Last year, there were 34,080 claims issued under the section 21...

One of my tenants had her/my house damaged when her recent ex partner (father of her child and on the tenancy up until May 2014) broke in recently. The police were called and they boarded up the house.  I have received a bill from the police for this, do I pay or does the tenant......

With ZERO capital, how can a newbie ‘get into’ property investment?

I’m sure this simple question will attract many answers – some useful, many humorous!  I’ve heard about no money down deals, lease options and similar …. I’ve also read these are a con!!! So what is the truth? Your opinion / input will be welcome. Kind regards Mark

West Bromwich Building Society Accounts

The 2013/14 accounts for West Bromwich Building Society show that they appear to have turned a corner and are back into profit.  Or do they? Perhaps that corner is a roundabout! Profits of £2.1 million were declared and their Chief Executive got a very nice thank you in the form of a whopping £134,000 bonus.......

Poor letting agency but no signed contract

Within the last month I became a landlord for the first time. I’ve had little or no communication from the letting agency since a verbal agreement to put the property with them and had to chase them for the move in date for the tenants. Their communication is terrible and has resulted in crossed words......
