My patience is being tested - Should I evict?

It’s time to evict, especially if your tenant has stuck his head in the sand.
He will still be entitled to his day in court, If you use the section 8 route, with section 21 you will get possession, but will have to do a separate claim for a money order.

As for being a Landlord, only if you are wealthy enough, i’m of a different opinion to Luke.

It isn’t your fault that your tenant has gotten into difficulties, it isn’t your fault that people have an opinion of your right to be a Landlord.
But this can be a lonely industry to be in and you won’t find many friends outside of it.

The beauty of the BTL industry, is that anybody deemed able to rent to a certain standard can join it and become successful.

You can avoid costs of eviction with rental insurance and employ agents with the necessary knowledge as you learn the ropes, so all possibilities can be covered.

That is true ‘social mobility’, instead, it is becoming a “closed shop”, for those who feel entitled because they can project their wealth and keep newcomers out, with their ideas of who can and can’t be in their realm.

So Luke, I will have to disagree on your comments, it’s bad enough that the World and his granny attack landlords, he doesn’t deserve it from people within the industry.

Luke, your not being helpful, you are dismissive of someone trying to learn how to deal with rent arrears.

That’s why this forum exists, long may it stay that way.... Read More

Lettings industry regulation consultation response released

On the face of it, it looks like a good idea, one the mafia would be proud of, but let’s delve into this a little further and you soon uncover the real reason that Mr Cox and others support this legislation.

It’s called a “Closed Shop”.

For those that remember the 1980’s it a term used to describe an industry that you cannot be part of, unless you are a fully paid up union member.

And it’s back, with a sexier phrase to describe it.

It was made illegal by Margeret Thatcher, but it’s on the rise again with battles against Uber, unqualified teachers and many others.
It is a discriminatory power that always gets abused and is anti free market.

It’s called restrictive choice or a “club”, for the privileged and you will need a lot of wealth to get you at a reasonable place of starting.

Alright then, if this gets in, just exactly what qualifications will you need to become a Lettings agent or an Estate Agent?

Maybe a degree?, well I’ve just failed at that fence.
Maybe a City Guilds?
Just how will your kids get started?
What if your blind?
Can you pass your business on?

The beauty of this business, is that it’s open to ANYBODY and that’s the real reason for this proposal.

The sheer hypocrisy of this bunch of idiots is astonishing.

I am a bloody professional in my job already thank you, I do more via the courts and admin for the government than most people I know, so don’t lecture me about your battle to restrict the market.

They are too wrapped up in their own little empires, to see what they are doing.

A bit like the Mafia.... Read More

Landlords Union Slams BBC Panorama Report

Anything that the BBC reports is biased, full stop!

They have no balanced reporting and they support the Labour Party, paedophilic tendencies and the EU.

I don’t need evidence to support my claim, I’ve said it, so it’s true.

That’s the reporting method used in this programme.

So let’s put the shoe on the other foot.

BBC, stands for the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation.

They are funded by the EU.

It is stuffed full of left wing Momentum activists, that deny free speech.

The Sunday political shows are all presented by Labour Party flunkies.

They feed the population with a diet of shows depicting rape and murder carried out by middle and upper class people.

They portray the working classes as heroes that battle against the state and people with assets.

They want us all to buy a house under the hammer, rent it out to idiots and face financial ruin.

That wasn’t a biased opinion, it was worryingly true.... Read More

IMLA blame 80% decrease in BTL investment on government policies

I tend to house some of the most unpleasant people our society has to offer.
I am currently evaluating all of my properties and those not performing are going to be sold off and my tenants will be dumped onto waiting lists for council houses that no longer exist.
The BTL market is now in deep trouble, It’s like watching a train crash in slow motion.
Section 24 isn’t fully implemented yet and we now have restrictions on lending via the horrendous red tape in obtaining a simple BTL mortgage.
Today I’m in West Yorkshire and I will be looking at selling off, a property there.
It has been wrecked twice by the tenants, who are now on a housing list, now evicted, unemployed and claiming every benefit they can get their grubby little hands on.
It’s not making enough money and probably has a bit of equity in it.
That’s another one that won’t be replaced.
That household have to be housed somewhere, it’s the law!
But it won’t be by me.
My letting agent says that there are many landlords now selling up and the rents are now rising at the request of remaining landlords.
They deal with the pleasant tenants, not the social misfits that I deal with, so for them to be worried, things must be bad.
For example, Liverpool are now cracking down into the HMO market with new proposed article 4 directives, with one aim in mind, which is to kill off the independent HMO landlord to try and fill the expensive chrome and glass student accommodation with as many people as they can.
I would suggest that they reconsider that idea and fast.
They have given planning permission for a market that doesn’t yet exist of over 88,000 student roooms.
What about families, seperated couples etc?
They will eventually become monuments of failure, they will be turned into wrecks by the scum I currently house.
I passed Byrom Point yesterday, just outside the Mersey Tunnel, the doors were filthy and it’s already looking grubby, from the outside.
It only opened last year.
There are now more being built and they will end up failing.
The ones not full will have space bought by the councils and they will mix some of these nutters with normal tenants.
That will mean gang rapes, drugs and beatings for anybody that gets in the way of their drug habit.
They haven’t evaporated into outer space, you politicians are idiots!
they still have to be housed!
This government and local councils haven’t got a bloody clue, they are attacking the people that bring choice, peace and tranquility to the rest of the housing market.
But I’m not the type of person that gives up on residual income.
I will probably move on to commercial, where if you don’t pay the rent, I can evict in weeks, as opposed to months in the residential market.
My attitude used to be that I provided a much needed service, I now feel that I am a victim of every moronic politician, stuffed into the Houses of Parliament and Town Hall.
Hey if you don’t want my investment money, that’s fine Mrs May, I can and will find a home for it elsewhere, you can now house the scum of the Earth and the taxpayer can foot the bill, you can eventually vilify the corporates and watch them leave the market in 10 years time, as their chrome and glass tower blocks turn into concentrated drug dens.
Corporates have no interest in being a social service and will make you pay for whatever you ask for, with a big fat invoice.
You had someone who housed some of the most ghastly tenants, ex offenders, arsonists, paedophilic scumbags and professors in lying through their teeth, you would never want to meet, spread out, buried amongst normal, pleasant folk, out of sight, out of mind, but you decided to attack my business and I will now move on to pastures new.
So watch out any remaining landlords, you have some of the most cringeworthy, scum in the tenant market, coming to a town near you and they are not very nice people.... Read More

New rent reporting system that links tenants’ rental payments with their credit report

Reply to the comment left by Joel Davis at 19/01/2018 - 00:10
Joel,
There are no circumstances that should allow a tenant to withhold rent, unless done through the correct channels, which is the civil procedure rules for disrepair and the local council.

The number of tenants that rationalise breach of contract, by denying their landlords due process is simply out of control.

Last year I wrote off over £23,000 of bad debt.

Do you know how many properties could have been repaired with that sort of money?

Those tenants that paid on time have subsided rent dodging scum bags, who will use any excuse to avoid paying and they should at least be rewarded with an improved credit rating.

What should be addressed is how an evicted tenant gets away with no credit score damage if it was done through PCOL and you don’t use a bailiff.

It’s an absolute disgrace and farce.... Read More
