Letting agent ignoring court judgement to pay rent due

The High Court Enforcement officer will in the first instance try to get the cash from the debtor and if not then go for goods to seize and sell at auction to get what you are owed. They add their fees to the debt and collect it on top of what you are owed.... Read More

Letting agent ignoring court judgement to pay rent due

Hi. As the Judgment is over £600 I would use a High Court Enforcement Officer. There is a fee of £60.0 to transfer the Judgment to the High Court. The County Court Bailiff can be used but they are to timid in my experience. A High Court Enforcement Officer has the power to enter commercial premises and add his costs the the Judgment - I have found it very effective. If the Letting agent works from premises and has computers and office equipment etc., so the last thing they will want is for their business to be interrupted by seizure of everything. Thats the route I would take.... Read More

I am being bullied by my tenant

This sounds like a tenant that is playing games- had a few like this before. I can not see nay Judge agreeing that you have broken the law- you have done everything reasonable to again access. On occasions like these I have written a polite letter to the tenant making it clear that their refusal to allow access is breach of the AST and any action due to their unreasonable behaviour will be placed before a court if it gets that far - I have found this tends to work. In the letter I would also state that you are to call, giving a date a few days in advance, with your contractors to do the work in question and an opportunity to call and re-arrange if such time is not acceptable.

Saying all this it does sounds as if the tenant is not happy where he lives and wants out. Give him the opportunity to go if he so wishes and pay back any rent if that placates him and get a new tenant ASAP.... Read More

Mortgage Express and Buy to Let Nightmares

I had two Buy to Let Mortgages with Mort Exp. They were originally with GMAC, but after 12 months Mort Exp ‘purchased’ them. This is where my case gets interesting, and like the original writer of this article the press needs to get a hold of this, as it applies to not only Mort Exp but NRAM as well.
I have over time been researching the legality of the ‘purchase’ by Mort Exp from GMAC. The purchase did not and does not conform to UK Statute. I have challenged both Mort Exp and NRAM to provide ALL the Mortgage Contracts and Mortgage Deeds that are needed in law for their mortgages to be enforceable, after 18 months and tens of letter/ fax’s and so on NO documents to prove their case have been forthcoming. In fact any Mortgage after 1998 HAD to have a signed Mortgage Contract and a signed Mortgage Deed to be enforceable (I have the legal jargon about this is anyone wants them to read). On all the mortgages in question I got the usual tactics by Mort Exp and NRAM and their unlawful and bully boy tactics by using LPA Administrators to take back, kick out tenants, and sell just to get the funds back for the public bail out, but here there is another question and one I have asked but has never been answered or proved – was it ‘actually’ Tax payers funds used of ‘just’ guarantees from the government at the time. It has been indicated that the bailout was noting ore that a way of funding the reduction in the National Debt – you only have to look at the sums paid back to HM Treasury and the sums still being collected to show what I am saying is what is going on.
I am now a little more knowledgeable over all this and am now asking for the Buy to Let lenders I am associated wit to ‘PROVE’ their case and so far NONE can. I am aware of other in my position and who are ‘exchanging’ tales and details to ‘STAND UP’ to these unlawful and illegal activities.
Was the wording ‘Toxic Mortgages’ really put about as a cover as the realisation was that ALL these mortgages were and are defective in their legality and that is was not the arrears !!!!!!!! The best way to cover up a mistake is to bully your way with a smoke screen and lie !!!!!... Read More

West Bromwich Building Society Tracker Margins Legal Action

As I have said before - the banks/finance co's / credit cards / mortgage lenders in fact any contract has terms set out at the start and those terms are set in stone and CAN ONLY be changed by consent of all parties- Novation. The problem is all these lenders / banks / credit card companies BULLY you into agreeing any change in terms - in LAW they can't but everyone lets them get away with it. A booklet that accompanies any contract would have to be signed at the time you agree to the contract as it forms part of the contract - if the booklet is not signed and agreed as part of the original terms it CANOT be used to make any changes. There are legal precedents on this part of contract law.... Read More
