CCJs - can you inform friends, families and community associations?

Reply to the comment left by Rob Crawford at 11/02/2019 - 12:55
When I had this situation (thankfully a very long time ago) I sent the tenant information on CCJs and the implications of them to all the addresses I had, including their place of work as a number of times she had asked me to contact her there (by phone) and she had stopped communicating with me. She refused to communicate as she told everyone she was "leaving the country anyway so it won't affect me" but I was fairly sure she would not leave... 6 years later once I had the CCJ I received the amount owing through Attachment of Earnings....

HMO appeal assistance please

I reported foxes living in an overgrown garden close by our property and the environmental team at the council called me to confirm that foxes were not considered a pest. Likewise bats are not. Rats are I agree, but the other two you mention are definitely not.
I am confused as to why they would have rejected your application based on the points you mention. I would be calling them to ask for clarification on why they have rejected your application. Would it be possible to speak to your neighbours individually to find out their concerns? If it is noise based on the number of occupiers you might be able to overcome their objection by eg. fitting carpets or thicker underlay to dampen it. However I have never heard of an objection based on this to be the only reason for the rejection.... Read More

CGT on Compulsory Purchase Order sale?

Click on the HMRC Gov website link under the Editor's note. That will help answer your query. From my reading of it you should inform HMRC by completing a CGT form, and tick the box showing the most appropriate code for your situation, after calculating what you believe your gain would be. You can buy a property of higher value and it's base cost at purchase will be reduced by the rolled over gain from the previous property (on which normally you would be due to pay CGT). HMRC categorise the other payments received (home loss disturbance etc) on the link above and state which are taxed under CGT and which are subject to income tax. I hope this helps.... Read More

Student Council tax exemption - Proof required?

Kent County Council have a great system whereby you provide the student ID number and their name to the council tax section and they do the rest. I wish some of the London boroughs would adopt this system to avoid the confusion caused when I have to explain to our overseas student tenants that they are liable to pay the council tax, but the liability will be zero if they supply the council with an exemption letter from their University....
