Newly painted ceiling water leak damage?

Hi Ian, Thanks for the comments. Yes we have landlords insurance for the individual property covering the property and liability but we don`t have a shared policy as mentioned above in the block building claim comment. :)... Read More

Newly painted ceiling water leak damage?

Hi, Thanks for all the comments, very much appreciated. We are going to ask to gain access to the property to further view the damage. The property below is empty at the moment. I think Scotland must be different for shared flat insurance, we certainly don`t have any shared insurance policies on this one but I know some properties have this thro a factoring service. I also like the idea of the flood detection system, very handy. Will update on outcome :)... Read More

Private landlord letting advertising in Scotland?

Speak to Angie at Aberdeenshire Leasing 0800 772 3294.

We usually use Gumtree but the current letting market in Aberdeen is saturated with properties for rent. We used Aberdeenshire Leasing earlier this year and rented our property out within 1 month. Also please give me a shout if you require an EPC. We cover Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and can offer guidance on increasing the rating if required.... Read More

Expensive quotes for new build?

If the quotes are all being returned at the same price that`s the price of the build. I`m not sure how came to the £100 K figure in the first place without actually obtaining costs, perhaps this is how much you wanted to spend. A new build is VAT exempt and anyone quoting for a new build will have made this assumption. Project managing a new build without any experience will probably cost you more in the long run. Save money on the fitments such as the kitchen, sanitary ware and floor coverings but be careful which ones you select to ensure the end result looks good. White mdf pre primed facings and skirting can also save time. In Scotland we tend to use block on the outer leaf with render, its much quicker to build than brick but your planning approved drawings probably have specified brick and we tape plaster joints instead of a complete plaster skim on the inside face, another cost and time saving detail, but only if the trades person knows the detail. A decent QS and a local Architect should be employed to control the build and costs and a decent sized contractor will be able to purchase materials with a higher discount than anyone making a one off purchase. I notice that someone has suggested installing ground source above. These systems start at £20K. It is not a low cost option. £1500 per m2 is the price of a new build in Aberdeen, comparative with the South East of England but I have seen new build costs returned much higher than this and closer to £2000 per m2. I`m an Architect with over 10+ years experience in domestic projects. Good Luck :)... Read More

Complaint to the BBC on reports concerning tax changes for landlords

The BBC are completely biased. The only way to stop their biased reporting is to stop watching! A letter of complaint will make no difference.... Read More
