Power of attorney query for bother in Australia?

What's in a word? Lots when the word is Lasting. I should have read the article properly and noted it mentioned a power of attorney not a Lasting Power of Attorney. I was wrong, indeed I've posted previously that engaging an expert is the better option when dealing with serious matters, so Ian I stand corrected. Get yourself a solicitor is good advice!!...

Power of attorney query for bother in Australia?

My mistake, it needs to be registered with the OPG or Office of Public Guardian. At least that's what GOV.UK specifies, and the cost is now £82, not the £200 I paid a few years ago.
As an aside it's prudent in these times for the sake of a hundred pounds to have one in place, one never knows when one might be stuck down and need someone to operate your affairs. I imagine the solicitors fees would be minimal in comparison to the grief not having one could result in.... Read More

There is no need to employ a solicitor to create a power of attorney. You can do it yourself and register it with The Court of Protection for less than £200. It's simplicity itself.... Read More

Church of England Diocese tenant eviction?

I’ve been lucky/careful with my tenants over the years and have only needed to evict one tenant in over 14 years. I didn’t know how and did think about asking here on 118 but decided on using the services of Landlord Action. It was one of my better moves! If you don’t know what to do or how to do it and the matter is serious get the experts in. Would you reroof your own roof or employ a contractor?
Good luck which ever route you take.... Read More

Urgent tenancy help required please?

This request shows the value of this site. We have a tenant looking for advice so she is engaging with a site which many will be thinking is set up to benefit landlords. The first response is from a landlord advising the tenant on how to safeguard her interests. Well done to Property 118!!
That said if your landlord has changed the tenancy and is now being heavy handed telling you to get out in a matter of days you may wish to consider the landlords obligations to you. Did you give a deposit, was it protected? Were you supplied with all the necessary paperwork, EPC, how to rent information etc etc. I don't condone tenants being difficult but if a landlord tells a tenant they have days to leave don't be surprised if they bite back if they can. That's why I always treat my tenants as people not just a source of income.... Read More
