Covid-19 - Which BTL Lenders Are Playing Ball?

No letters from BM at all and can’t get through but website says rates will be reduced from 1st April
Any news on Topaz ( Siberite) ? Tried to call and gave up after nearly an hour on hold.
Would be amazing to recapitalise a 3 month holiday but I couldn’t jeopardise my credit rating?... Read More

We want to help - Recovering deferred rent?

I’ve had some contact me already-
One wanted a 50% reduction until he’s back in full time work and the other I’ve just negotiated 75% of the full rent. I just couldn't afford to give any of them a 3 month Rental holiday to some of my tenants —- I can’t see my lenders being flexible on our semi commercial loans. I politely explained to them that any money will have to be paid back later anyway

Anyone spoken with our lenders ?... Read More

So are the landlord community going to formally respond to this incorrect statement?
How do we let them know that they are sending out lies?... Read More

Debt collector nonsense - Get your time at £19 per hour

I’ve had this issue with Lowell over tenants’s unpaid utility bills and they demanded my date of birth before they would discuss the property addresses. I refused of course. Brilliant points Fergus and thank you for sharing.
Last year, i sued a well know bailiff for my time but I justified the hourly rate at 65.00 as that’s what I’m worth. I also included in my demand to them, late payment fees of £35 per month as they took 4 months to return an overpayment. They enjoy the benefit of enforcement fees so we should have the right to charge them... Read More
