Taking rent from tenant overlap?

Negotiating fee to renovate - Am I price Taker?

Obviously this is excessive - I'd take advise from the Leasehold Advisory people before making a decision - I've completely rearranged an apartment - walls, floors, plumbing etc and 'only' paid £1200 which I thought was enough for doing nothing (plus legal fees of course).

HMO or What?

There is no planning consent for anything other than a residential dwelling - this was how it was in the days prior to the HMO licensing and my two other HMOs were licensed during the first round so are not captured by the change in planning use.

Just wondering what I need to do to make these less worrying.... Read More
