Fixtures and Fittings – it’s all in the detail

Fixtures and Fittings – it’s all in the detail

24/04/2014

Whether a developer, CGI artist, architect, landlord or owner occupier, attention to detail is important. It is easy enough to include a Le Corbusier chaise longue and portray an illusion of contemporary chic which some people do buy. I used to advise the use of vertical blinds in flats with not great views. At least… Read more

The Social Housing crisis and Landlords

23/04/2014

In May last year I did a TV programme called The One Show, where they filmed me serving a section 8 notice on a LHA tenants at 7am, they had kept the landlords rent of £4,000. This piece was about the launch of the trial version of ‘Universal Credit’, which I warned would be not… Read more

MMR and the Property Investor

17/04/2014

For those of you who, like me, are involved professionally with mortgages, the spectre of MMR, or Mortgage Market Review as it is more correctly known, is finally about to hit home. For the interest of everyone else who is not professionally involved with mortgages, MMR is the FSA’s (and now the FCA’s) baby, which… Read more

Inflation

Extortionate court fee increases will impact landlords

09/04/2014

Landlord Action has lambasted Government plans to increase court fees as “extortionate”.  The planned changes will take effect from 22nd April 2014, where fees for possession claims will see one of the largest increases at 60%, and could spark a stampede of possession cases in the next two weeks from landlords trying to beat the… Read more

Safety laws should be applied to ALL property owners

Safety laws should be applied to ALL property owners

02/04/2014

I am in favour of new regulations which could help to save lives but I don’t understand why only the lives of tenants seem to matter in the eyes of the law. I don’t have gas at home but I do have electricity (yes even in mid Norfolk LOL) and I also have an electrical… Read more

Could you run your property portfolio from the other side of the world

Do you feel trapped by your property portfolio?

27/03/2014

Could you run your property portfolio from the other side of the world? If you couldn’t, without making a lot of changes, ask yourself “why not?” Whether you live next door or the other side of the world isn’t really the point.
