Naive Questions from Landlords?

Don't get disheartened Mark.
Every business man/woman knows there is always somebody out there that thinks they know it all , some do ,most don't . In my experience the ones that think they know it all are the first to come running in a crisis.
Well that's got that off my chest . I personally and I expect a great deal of others think you do a marvellous job for very little reward.
Keep up the good work... Read More

How should I deal with a down valuation?

We are in the same position we bought a semi detached bungalow in Eastbourne last year . It was originally on the market for £150k but we bought it for £140k being very close to main line rail station to London and also very close to all local amenities we thought this a good investment for a BTL property. Having spent around 4k fitting a new kitchen and general refurb we were mortified when we changed mortgage lenders and they came back with a valuation figure of 140k even when prices here in the south of England have started to shoot up again.We have challenged their decision but they are refusing to budge saying that they will only reconsider if we can come up with proof of recent sales of similar properties that have sold within the last 3 months .This is proving to be nearly impossible as there are no other semi detached bungalows in that area and certainly none that have sold in this time frame.
I must admit our mortgage broker has been very good in trying to fight our corner but even with all his experience and know how we seem to be facing a loosing battle.
Like the previous comment posted we suspect that nobody even went around to look at the property but cannot prove this one way or another.... Read More

What accountancy software do landlords use?

Hi Martin. My wife tried Xero but gave up with it she now uses Wave and it's free. Easy to set up and you can have an account for each property. It gives you a great button breakdown of where you money is going. It is also available on IPad, and you can up load photos of receipts. But my wife prefers to enter everything via the laptop/desktop computer. You can also link bank accounts and credit cards. As well as this you have an option of producing reoccurring invoices! Hope this helps... Read More
