Approached by compensation firm about Mortgage Securitisation?

Reply to the comment left by Mark Alexander at 17/03/2019 - 17:30
I've always assumed (as the starter of this thread ages ago!) since your post in July last year that you will advise whether you think it is worthwhile jumping in or not. Eventually we shall hear from Mark Smith via you either way. Meanwhile forget it!... Read More

CCJs - can you inform friends, families and community associations?

All interesting posts but why bother with all this stuff - shaming the debtor locally etc? Just go for the throat to get paid. You've got a CCJ for the amount which debtor must pay within 14 days. Instruct Debt Collection Bailiffs Ltd as seen on TV - "Don't pay we'll take it away" - and they will get your money. Just give them the CCJ and £60 I recall and they will do it. Always have done so for me with tenants owing money. Because they will turn up unannounced at debtor's home or place of work neighbours and/or work colleagues will get the message he is a bad non paying egg so he will get shamed at the same time....

Cost to landlords to join a COMPULSORY Redress Scheme?

So here is a new scheme that landlords are bound by law to join and pay for. It seems though that until it is proscribed into law by Act of Parliament or whatever landlords don't have to sign up. No deadline or start date is mentioned. But we are incentivised to join now to gain a 50% discount which has already expired? Seems like a cock up before it's off the ground?! Will it include all landlords even someone who lets their house while overseas say working for a year or so? If so will landlords with a portfolio of BTL's pay same as someone with just one like in hypothetical example just quoted? Grossly unfair.... Read More

Access after section 8/abandonment

Reply to the comment left by Chris Daniel at 17/01/2019 - 22:12
That's a relief to hear from Chris that a landlord can enter under "Emergency" scenario which he describes. That gets the windows shut which Graeme said was the case in his original question. If any of the other horrors Old Mrs Landlord said sometimes happen apply then they can be addressed at the same time.... Read More
