Allow Landlords to evict tenants where there are 14 days rent arrears

Please take the 14 day petition down and replace with a more realistic timeframe and showing empathy to the tenants situation, then I would definitely sign but I could not sign the way it is and the way it portrays landlords !... Read More

Worried about mitigating S24

First of all transferring the beneficial ownership can only be done if you are a trading partnership ( min 3years)
If you think of the beneficial interest is income only the assets remain in individual names (even though for tax purposes there in your partnership ) the mortgage lenders still have their charge over them and are not protected in anyway from insolvency ,repossession ,bankruptcy .
Transferring beneficial interest is to mitigate the impact of the ludicrous S24 !

This is a layman's overview from our experience having done 300 properties 2 years ago with the help ( and you will need help ) from Mark Smith at Cotswald Barristers .
We have now gone on to refinance on a commercial basis and the Beneficial interest trust didn't stop this , we had to call on Mark again to explain to both sets of solicitors what we had done (thanks again Mark if you're reading this )... Read More

Letting agency fee increase?

Letting agents have taken a massive hit so most are increasing their fees and reducing staff which I'm sure will impact on the private landlords reputaion ! the letting agent we use Daniel Craig Residential in the north east is redusing overheads by moving off the high street and keeping fees the same.
The governments plans to help the tenants is going to backfire again by more unhappy and probably less safe tenants if safety checks are left to the untrained landlord, more empty shops and less jobs ! know doubt it will be the landlords fault again !... Read More
