1st time UK buyer and stamp duty?

Assuming that he has actually sold his house in Canada then the answer to the first box is 1. So whether the first ( now sold ) house was bought in Canada or the UK is immaterial. Also the new house is a replacement for his main resident so under both conditions he should not pay the 3%. If the sale of the Canadian house is still going through then he should pay but be able to claim it back after the sale. Simples.... Read More

Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?

Surely any candidate for the rental property can be refused without giving any reason for doing so? Just say that another candidate was more suitable and you shouldn't have to prove it as the applications are subject to Data Protection rules and once the property is let the applications can be destroyed as no longer suitable for their purpose. The UC candidate thus is considered but found unsuitable for that property. Surely simples?

BTW an excellent summary of the reasons against.... Read More

Protest with Care

Not sure between Farage's Brexit Party or the English Democrat Party. It seems that the latter is leaning towards devolution which, whilst I am not for, I am not against either. The EDP has the more professional look but although I am patriotic I'm not sure that I'm THAT patriotic about England, more about UK. I agree with everyone that the Tories and Labour have missed the boat about the PRS although sheer logical and a bit of sociological thinking should determine what the reactions of current policies will be. Not sure if any of the politicians have more than two brain cells to connect together. Yes I will vote one or the other and if no suitable alternative candidate I will write on my voting slip "I am unable to vote for any of these candidates". I think that we should vote the current shower of MP's out next election. They are all as much use as a chocolate fireguard. And I consider myself moderate!!!!... Read More

Website for victims of domestic violence from property sale

In continuation, be careful in wanting powers moved to police/fire brigade as it will probably result in fewer interventions. Police are very, very reluctant to intervene in family matters even to enact court orders when the ex-partner, and most particularly ex-wives who still have a major advantage in law, break them. My son has custody of his children and several times his ex-wife has refused to return them meaning a visit to court and even though he has a court order for their return the police have refused to attend. In law it is much more advantageous to be female than male.... Read More

Website for victims of domestic violence from property sale

I agree with Pete. Potentially, and this is difficult to quantify because of shame and the male unwillingness to report violence against them, there are more male sufferers of domestic abuse than females. Don't forget that bullying and threatening coercion can also be classed as abuse and much more liable to be done by a female than a male. A point that I also think about with charity advertisements for saving young girls that the young boys are also at risk and there are few charities for them. So surely you should be concentrating on eradicating and alleviating all domestic abuse irrespective of the sex of the victim.... Read More
