Landlords Alliance progress report

I am a paying member of Larry's NLA and whilst I agree with the general comments regarding Shelter (I am actually waiting to be banned from their FB page for publishing critical comments about them) - I have just came accross an article published in Axe The Tenants Tax on FB. https://www.propertytribes.com/if-have-salary-s24-killer-t-127638723.html
It is really shocking. TBH I would like Larry to put some effort into that, as this is a real killer for more and more of us. And not everyone can incorporate for various reasons. If I remember well this website really expanded after the S24 came into light. I just wonder if Larry is planning to do something about that? I hate Shelter and their approach, but S24 for us at the moment is a killer much more tangible than Shelter. I guess it is also the same for a number of members of this forum. So Larry - do you have ANY forseeable plans to tackle that? Or your only advice is going to be incorporation?... Read More

Housing Ministry tightens electrical safety rules for Landlords

Reply to the comment left by Monty Bodkin at 30/01/2019 - 10:32
I am sure it will come to the situation LLs will have to provide certificates for every single item in the property. They will also be made responisble for quality of electrical items TTs are bringing into the property, forcing them to provide every item properly checked. I am not against the electrical certificate, we do it every 5 years anyway. The problem will be with replacing the old istallation with a new one, it is very costly. Can I assume that these costs will be tax deductible? It is a replacement from old, non-compliant one to a new one, isn't it?... Read More

Housing Ministry tightens electrical safety rules for Landlords

"Ministers will also publish new guidance which sets out the minimum level of competence and qualifications necessary for those carrying out these important inspections". No doubt LLs will have to check thoroughly the qualification of a person they are hiring. After being immigration officers we are now becoming Trade Board Quality Controllers (or something along these lines)...... Read More

Private landlords will be legally required to become members of a redress scheme

It is all to do with controlling Landlords, obtain more info about them and held them responsible for every tiny thing tenant may dream of and does not get immediately. The idea nevertheless is not bad, but it should be a 'level playing field' for both LLs and TTs. I bet it is not going to be, it will be heavily biased against LLs, as always. They could start with those registered (theoretically all) having a substantial discount in Licence fees (yes, I know I dream here, would love to have all licences abolished overnight, but...)...
