Solicitor sold my property to a fraudster?

One might expect solicitors to have had training - and plently of practice - in verifying identity. But this assertion, regarding the Law Society’s "recommendations", indicates a far lower level of care than would be required of a landlord under the "Right to Rent" checks!... Read More

Tenant Reference Requested?

So you called the (referencing) company, rather than them calling you.

"a square footage basis" - Well it is ONE way, but NONE of these would be strictly in proportion to the area, for varying flats in the same block: property value (sale or purchase price), monthly rent (or valuation thereof), Rateable Value, and Council Tax.
And it gets even more complex, to decide whether gross or net internal or external area.
With the larger flats (in the block under discussion) using "count equally" as their starting point for negotiations, maybe those in the smaller flats should use "per square metre" (let's be up-to-date!) as their starting point?
I can't see them achieving that, but ...... Read More
