Tenant deposit cap is cut to 5 weeks by government!

The Government are making it as easy as possible for a tenant to access property but as difficult as possible for a landlord to get rid of a bad tenant. All of the Government's guff about you have to give the tenant a copy of an EPC certificate and a copy of the "How to rent in England" booklet otherwise you can't evict them is just TOSH to try and trip you up, you also have to give it to them BEFORE THEY MOVE IN, TOSH, if you don't use a tenancy agreement that states its a contractual TA and the the tenancy turns periodic and there is a revision in the booklet of "How to rent in England" and you don't give them this updated copy (even though you have already given then the previous version before they moved in) then you can't evict them. TOSH. If you send them the information by email but don't have their permission to be contacted by email then they class it as not being served and you can't evict, TOSH
The punishment is not relevant to the crime in these circumstances and it certainly does not create a market that is "Fair for everyone"
The Government have PURPOSELY INVENTED these rules so that they catch the landlord out and be able to let the tenant stay in a property so that they do not become a social problem.... Read More

Irish "caring" Budget re-introduces 100% mortgage interest tax relief

I read about the Irish reintroducing 100% tax relief for interest finance costs on one of the property blog websites (Can't remember which now), it also stated that the Irish Government do not intend to offer this tax relief to those landlords on low rate tracker mortgages "As they are already getting a financial advantage" How absolutely appalling that they would discriminate like this against a landlord that had made a good commercial decision many years ago.
That to me is a dirty way of doing business and I would expect no less from the British Government if they were to reconsider Section 24... Read More

New Landlord Association seeking pledges

Hi, I'll join the Landlords Alliance. "All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing!" Section 24 is an immoral tax that has been applied retroactively and the Government should be ashamed of themselves. I contributed to the Judicial review and was wondering if there is any cash left over that could be transferred to this new landlord Alliance?... Read More

End of the Road

Perhaps a £1 fee added onto every insurance based deposit fee of every tenancy deposit created and a £1 fee deducted off the return of any custodial deposit when returned. If they don't ban the letting agent and landlord administration fees then make it £2 per deposit and charge it to the tenant on signing each new tenancy.... Read More
