Consultation Testimonials

I have just incorporated as a result of the advice of Property118 and the team at Cotswold Barristers. This is the first time in three years that I have not had the cloud of Section 24 hanging over me. The cost of incorporation will be returned to me in the savings on CGT when I sell a property next year. The benefits of securing the longevity of the portfolio, with the reduced necessity to redeem mortgages, made this decision a "no brainer" for me. The help, guidance and support offered by Mark and the team was fantastic and I can fully recommend their services. Thank you.... Read More

3% rent increase reasonable?

3% rent increase reasonable?

I have raised my rents significantly since the introduction of S24 and sent information packs to all my tenants inviting them to visit their MP's and explaining that the rise is forced on me by the governments stance towards the PRS....

BILLBOARDS UPDATE "Just Giving" campaign raises over £4,000 in just a few days

Thank you and yes I totally agree. The reason the boards have more text than a general drive by board was that the actual board itself was meant as a platform and focal point to be promoted through various other social and media tools. If their existence in each individual area can create dialogue and bring everyone to one focal point of information it may give us more power to make change through the strength of numbers in other campaigns whilst educating those unaware of the impending doom. Thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated.... Read More
