Bank of Ireland increase differential on tracker rates

PS if we don't hit the target all funds will be repaid so you can rest assured that you will not lose out by committing now.

Hi Richard, sadly not, we are quite a long way off course. There have only been 5 people paid up so far but you and one other has committed today. I'm hoping people are just waiting until the last minute to part with funds but I'd be lying if I said I'm confident the target will be reached. I don't know what else I can do.

Out on my ear after 25 years

Hi Nicola

I think the advice from Tony Atkins is particularly helpful, especially the part about going to your landlords solicitor with various questions. I think you should also take legal advice.

I also understand how difficult it might be uprooting to a different area. When I was a teenager my father was made redundant. We had lived in the same house all of my life in Staffordshire so my entire support network was there. My parents were really struggling financially so when my Dad was offered a job in Norfolk he jumped at the chance. I was devastated at the time, 17 years of age is an awful point in your life to have to move 150 miles away and find new friends. However, 30 years on I now realise that it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

It's funny how lifes challenges can be turned into positives when you have the right state of mind. If you do have to move on, look upon this as an opportunity, even though it might feel like a disaster. You never know how things might turn out.

Thank you for that Peter, your comment means a lot to me.

When I first started publishing Readers Questoions from tenants I copped for quite a lot of stick from some members. However, I stuck to my guns on the basis that my mission statement for this forum is "To facilitate the sharing of best practice amongst the Private Rented Sector". This sector is made up of landlords, tenants and letting agents. Without tenants we would have no market, they are our customers. No business sector can afford to ignore it's customers, we all have something to learn from each other.

I deplore the positional approach often taken by the likes of Shelter as this does nothing to help the sector in the long term. Hopefully, at Property118 we are demonstrating that a positive future for the PRS begins with positive and helpful communication.

Thanks again, your comment has made my week 😀
