Birmingham Midshires increased my fixed rate mortgage payment?

I have the same issue too. They increased my fixed for no reason. Called and asked for an explanation and they couldn't explain. I insisted on speaking to a manager but said he was in a meeting. He then said he would get someone from the back office to write to me of why the increase and should expect a letter in 7-10 days. It's been 3 weeks and no letter or phone call.... Read More

Should I proceed with offering a tenancy agreement?

1. No guarantor - Red flag No1
2. Universal Credit with a year's rent offer - Red flag No2
3. "just about sufficient to cover the monthly rent" but have a year's rent to pay? Red flad No3
4. The fact you have to ask in this forum - Red flag no4...follow your gut instinct. I had lovely prospective tenants who ended up owing me £20K.
Besides, the Previous landlord could be their friends
By any chance, did they say" do not visit the property within the year?"... Read More

Thanks for your comment. The tenant not only did not pay from day one, but also tried to counterclaim in court against the hot water, despite engineers being set out 4 times but refused access. His partner is an estate agent which they used all their knowledge to abuse the system! I did ask if this was fraud/ theft on this forum, but a couple of members said it's not fraud/ theft. I act on what April/ Bill suggested in contacting my MP.... Read More

Thanks, Bill for your input and response.
I contacted UC monthly (they probably know me in their office, at one stage I even contacted someone in the directors' office in another region before they inform me when the claim started). I filled out the APA 4 times before it was actioned lase month. They believed the tenant about the hot water not working but he refused 4 engineers access when they arrived costing me call out fees. The DWP never called me and the letter the DWP issued to the tenant was misleading as he presented in court costing another extra £500 in legal fees as the hearing was adjourned because he lied that UC had been paying me since June 2020. When you say My local practice manager/ service leader/ council’s chief executive, do you mean where the property is located as I am in a different county to where the property is located?...
