Failed EPC Due to assumed no insulation?

Your EPC inspector is an idiot..Get another one done and make sure you're present, or have a builder present to advise plus have a ring around some of the EPC companies and talk through your problem you will eventually find a more experienced inspector who has a better understanding and who will take a view..Many of the younger inspectors I've come across have no build or construction knowledge or natural background in building and should be treated as ill informed. Note any 2007 conversion would have included comprehensive energy calcs and thermal insulation thus would not have passed BR without it, have a look at the planning portal and see what BR info is there...Print off your previous expired EPC and ask the current one to comment before you use some choice words.....

Bridging Finance - is this a good deal for me?

0.65% pay rate is very good!-In fact i'd like to know who you are using (if you're allowed to on here!¬) We use bridging from time to time and we're usually at .75-1% . The first one we did was 1.1%!...Your fee's are just less than 2% which is typically 1% in and 1% out which is comparable to other lenders, check there's not an excessive a broker fee hidden in there too, but if i was offered that bridging deal for a small project i'd sign up, you won't do any better...Rgds John Maynard...

Evicted but when should we enforce £20,000 debt?

Wow-when i read stories like these i wonder why we bother at all-i suggest you lobby your MP, write to your local paper & post your experience on SM etc, far far more dodgy tenants out there than dodgy landlords yet we have no recourse, are beaten with a stick lambasted as villains and our pockets raided-I've just had our yr end through! I will indeed be putting up the rents across our 17units and will no longer 'take a view' on prospective tenants who don't quite make the grade.
I wish you the very best of luck in chasing your rouge corrupt ex tenant...... Read More

I'm on the brink?

Hi Jay, sorry to hear of your situation, we've all been there at one time or another, i recommenced joining the RLA i think its around £80-90 per yr ( we auto renew so i can't be exact) however they have a great legal section with template forms and free telephone consultation to an expert on their panel to assist in form filling-we have evicted bad tenants ourselves using them as support, if the cash is tight then this is worth considering if your eviction circumstances are fairly straight forward...Good luck!...
