Penalised over CGT due to Government emergency rules?

Well you left that important piece of information out didn’t you. You can however appeal the payment as long as you can provide the evidence that exchange and completion were contracted to take place 3rd April 2020. Pretty sure your professional advisor is aware of this.
However assuming you don’t sell another property before 5-4-21 then you aren’t being penalised in CGT... Read More

Penalised over CGT due to Government emergency rules?

Whilst I understand the frustration this can cause- the CGT would have had to be paid either way, now you just do not get 6 months interest free. Probably for the best as its paid and finished with... Read More

Citizens Advice say tenants should not be pressured to allow viewings

As the PRS has grown so much over the last 30 years this housing situation was never considered.

Tenants own business supplying lighting to large scale events?

We are going to deal with each individual tenant on a case by case basis. If they have no history of late payments or arrears then our approach would be to offer them a rent reduction of their choice with the balance to be repaid over the next 6 / 12 months.
We are also offering a tenancy surrender under certain circumstances but we are fortunate enough to have had the discussion with our main bank who have offered to extend our overdraft by 3 months rent income. Obviously this will be a last resort for us.
We will have to wait and see how this develops but we will have to try and work together with our tenants.
Our thoughts extend to all of you in these very difficult times, hope your families are well. Try and distance yourselves as much as possible!... Read More
