Government have created chaos in the PRS

The Bank Of England have asked banks to cancel their next dividend payment to preserve their capital in order to help them with the tsunami of defaults shortly coming their way. (And the “payment holidays” will restrict their cash flow, they’re businesses as well). There’s a lot of bank bashing out there. “All the banks” didn’t get bailed out HSBC, Barclays, Nationwide Building Society to name some of the big players didn’t need Government assistance last time around. I can see quite a few banks needing bailout assistance again.... Read More

Covid-19 support for the self-employed

Self employed are eligible to apply for a “grant” which is really a loan and will need to be repaid. Employed are to be gifted 80% of their salary. Doesn’t sound very fair to me. Yet the Chancellor wants to increase NI for self employed as he says they are treated the same.

Full Government COVID-19 guidance for landlords and tenants published

I have a vacant flat which has been unoccupied now for two months as I have needed to fully decorate it. Tenant was due to move in on 10th April but has told me he doesn’t want it now. given uncertainty around his employment etc. Impossible to advertise and get another tenant due to the lockdown. Council tax is £130 p.m. which I’ve been paying for the last two months and I’m expected to pay for what could be many more months. Who knows 6 months+ ? I’m emailing the Council today but don’t expect any help.... Read More

Covid-19 - Which BTL Lenders Are Playing Ball?

Reply to the comment left by Monty Bodkin at 26/03/2020 - 19:05
Also lenders are likely to mess up your credit score with your “holiday” showing as arrears. Yes I know they’re not supposed to do that but sod’s law they’ll cock it up and it’ll be a nightmare to get them to correct it later. So I agree best to pay if you can.... Read More
