Complaints not resolved on multi-home cover?

Agree that BG is not what is was - the convenience was that I always seem to get calls in the middle of coldest winter night from a tenant saying a boiler has failed and you can call BG them and they would attend by the morning. Also the Dynorod drains susidiary is a really fast on site service. On the Gas side, not anymore, while the staff are good, the service levels are shocking and they have a strategy of pushing out annual services by a couple of months each year so after 6 years, you lose a full year of service that you have paid for. They have also cancelled many appointments citing covid as the reason.
but speaking to their staff, they tell me that there is mass strike action and staff leaving going on behind the scenes as BG are cut staff benefits but the price keeps being hiked. Also when you renew a boiler - you get no credit to reduced price - if you cancel and re-signed as the wife, you get a massive discount! Which magazine suggest other providers are way ahead and I will
make a switch when I get a moment.... Read More

Generation Rent wants the Government to force landlords to accept more risk

Chris - your comment about London race ratios is completely irrelevant and frankly quite offensive and detracts from the rest of your point which has some validity. You clearly do not live or work in London and do not know how the city that pays for the butter and jam for the rest of the UK works. What do you mean by “their own”? The fact is that a lot of people rent in London and politically are more likely to follow an anti-landlord politician. In fact this is not a London problem but a national problem given that Tories have decided to sacrifice 1.9m British landlord votes with anti-landlord policies in an attempt to attract votes from Generation Rent. Apologise and edit your post.... Read More

It's official - NO NEED to refinance when incorporating into a limited company

Is this basically a Beneficial Interest trust which has been around for a while but advisors seem to shun it on the ground that HMRC wont like it but now it seens they do? Also if this was released in Oct, how come we are only talking about it now? Thanks otherwise for advising us of some potential good news when its always bad news for landlords... Read More
