Please help with confusion over Building Regs and HMOs

This may help.
I purchased many properties in the very early nineties some were commercial with accommodation above. The two I have which are more specific to your case are four shops on the ground floor with two flats above. So in 1992 I had to install 60 minutes fire protection (two sheets of plaster board on the ceilings of the shops) The accommodation had separate protected fire staircase with 60 minute fire doors and closers to each flat. The kitchen had a fire door and closer, and a monitored interlinked fire alarm was installed (commercial panel with battery installed in lobby) In those days I would have a meeting with a fire officer to insure the layout complied with means of escape, also insuring the kitchen was not positioned where if a fire occurred the route would be compromised. Noise separation and heat lose was not such a big problem in those days, but today you will need minimum EPC of an 'E' to let, which I expect will change over the next few years.... Read More

Mark Robert Alexander vs West Bromwich Mortgage Company High Court Judgement

The following paragraph relates to a fictional book I read some years ago

Could damage the banks, the economy, MP safe seats, could even be bigger than the last financial crisis…….with massive claims….just like the PPI……and an election coming up in a few months !!!!
Well don’t really want to tell your honour…………… the outcome we expect in the house.

Good job this was all fictional……….can't remember the book....not that it would ever really happen in real life... Read More

FOS rule West Brom Tracker Rate Hike is fair

A message to all you un-decided ...... deflated by the decision you were given by the FOS

My simple ode

‘I was stung by WB for larger fees each month, yet dithered and became a 'fence sitter'
Apparently I was told my trust was to be with the FOS, however that ruling has made me even bitter

The FOS has manipulated findings on our contracts which has now turned to be in WB favour
Which to us core fighters is of course no surprise given both their behaviour

No need to further wonder or ponder with us as a group at Property 118
You are all now welcome to join the fight before it' becomes too late

Let’s have your fee to join the fight
You know it makes sense as more numbers gives us even greater might... Read More
