One or two estate agents?

It probably varies from area to area as to how best to market a property, but from a general viewpoint, I would say there's absolutely no point in instructing more than one agent. There are several reasons I can think of for this:
1 Most will charge higher commission.
2 Almost all agents these days advertise on rightmove, which is most buyers' go to for buying property these days.
3 You would have to give both agents a key to the property which could cause you and your buyer problems later.
4 It would make you look desperate to sell and could attract lower offers.
5 If you find a sole agent you have worked with before, you may get a good deal. I did this when I allowed an agent who had been managing 2 of my properties to sell them. They charged me half the normal rate to sell. They also gave me a good rate on their own solicitors.... Read More

Wrongly given lodger agreement instead of AST?

Jon D, do you think this ridiculous set of suggestions will work for all properties? Only, I've got tenants who I have been looking at getting rid of. Just thinking, I could save myself 12-18 months of hassle with the courts, not to mention a few grand, by just going into the property, changing the locks and throwing their stuff on the lawn. I think if you did this, YOU would end up being the trespasser, and therefore prosecuted.... Read More

Can you transfer a section 21 notice to a new landlord?

I seriously don't see why you would want to buy a property with a problem tenant already in situ. It is surely a no-brainer to insist on vacant possession contractually with your solicitor, who's job it would be to ensure this is the case before completion.
Looking at this thread, I think it's fair to say my view matches popular opinion. Basically, either the tenant goes, or you should walk away (or even run!!)... Read More

Licensing proposed for Loughborough during crisis!

These licensing schemes do not benefit anyone, as has been proved time ,and time, and time again. When are people going to learn? It's a lose-lose for tenants and landlords. Rents go up to pay for licensing, houses become unaffordable, landlord sells, less choice for evicted tenant, rents go up again.
Greater Manchester has been looking at licensing for a few months now. In anticipation, both of my tenants have already received notice as neither are willing or able to pay higher rents, so there's another 2 tenants the Council will have to find houses for, as no one else will.... Read More

Government changed law so most renters have 6 month notice period

It's all aimed at making landlords bankrupt, as that will be the only outcome here. I have heard so many landlords say 'I'm getting out' and I need to get out myself now. One small problem though, we can't evict anyone for 6 months now which means any landlord such as myself and thousands of others needing to take properties back for whatever reason now cannot do so. Rent arrears are a big problem yes, but they are not the only reason people need to evict.... Read More
