Landlords Victory in Liverpool

Just had a notice that all landlords & people who rent property in our Poole and Bournemouth areas are to be considered by our local Councils, to pay £330 every 5 years (+ V.A.T. ?) on each of their properties! What a "B" cheek! Just to swell the coffers of these 2 local Councils with NO justification for their plan. Landlords do an amazing service to our community in housing the home-less, as the said 2 local Councils cant / don't cope. Is this some un-justified extortion plan, or what ??
Landlords are already being hammered by increased tax demands and new government legislation against them.
Thousands are currently getting out of the business by selling up. The authorities are shooting them-selves in the foot with their anti landlord stance, as thousand of tenants will be made homeless, thus relying on their local councils for accommodation, that they simply cant provide enough of.
Message to said councils,,, STOP THE LANDLORD BASHING / PERSECUTION !!!... Read More

End Section 21 petition gets nearly 50,000 signatures

Reply to the comment left by Gromit at 23/07/2018 - 10:08Please, can somebody tell me...
My tenant owed me 3 months rent.
I issued a section 21 with 2 months notice on it (3rd May to 3rd July 2018. ) The tenant refuses to leave .
When the 2 months was up, I asked a lawyer to take the next step for me, to co to the courts, to pursue the eviction.
The lawyer said he believed the judge would throw out my case as (he said) one must give at least 2 months + one day for the notice to be served!
He suggested I engage him to serve a fresh Section 21 notice and wait another 2 months (plus 1 day)
Others have since told me that my "exactly 2 months notice" is valid ! i.e. dated 3rd May to 3rd July.
Was / is my Section 21 notice dated 3rd May to 3rd July O.K.
or not ??
Any advice please...

Thailand refurb tax deductable ?

Reply to the comment left by "Dr Rosalind Beck" at "04/05/2017 - 12:16":

Thank you for your views but I feel my question goes un-answered.
As a buy-to let landlord in the U.K. I believe I can put "refurbishment" cost against my profits but NOT for any "newbuild" costs.
Question is, can I legally deduct "refurbishment" costs from from my U.K. profits,
if the buy-to-let refurb. venture was abroad and funded by me from the U.K. ?
Thank you for helping me.

Thailand refurb tax deductable ?

Reply to the comment left by "Neil Patterson" at "03/05/2017 - 14:40":

Seems like a contradiction here as you say as I,m a U.K. citizen I would pay U.K. tax on profits from U.K. or abroad, (thats what I think) but you then go on to say that my U.K.and abroad interests would be taxed separately?? How could they be taxed "separately"?
I repeat, its my understanding that wether its home (U.K.) or abroad, a U.K. based person comes under the U.K. tax umbrella BUT can deduct expenses / costs from a foreign venture if the said venture is a REFURB. (not a new-build),
Would you say that is so ?
Many thanks
Ronald
