We need to wake up and smell the coffee!

We need to tread a little carefully with Crisis. I used to support them, but a couple of years ago they started promoting that the ending of a tenancy agreement was the biggest cause of homelessness in the UK. I wrote to their head John Sparks, outlining the range of reasons for the ending of tenancy agreements, but he couldn't agree to changing the use of this rather misleading statement. I also asked him to look into the impact of Section 24 of the Finance Act, on pushing private landlords out of the sector, thereby increasing homelessness, but unfortunately he wouldn't be drawn into this one either....

We need to wake up and smell the coffee!

A few years ago, a landlord friend of ours took her tenant to Shelter to help her get some advice/help with her rent arrears.
The Shelter assistant looked really uncomfortable with my friend being there with this tenant. In the end the assistant asked my friend if she would mind leaving the room for a couple of minutes, so she could speak with the tenant alone.
My friend was shocked to learn later, that the tenant she was trying so hard to help was asked by the Shelter assistant 'do you think it is wise to get on so well with your landlord?'.
They are an awful bunch, they really are. Go for them Landlords Alliance. I have just paid my £100 joining fee. I really look forward to Larry Sweeny showing them out for what they really are.... Read More

Tax Consultation Testimonials

My wife and I have also found incorporation, tax reliefs and benefits very confusing. However, thanks to our personal consultation with Mark, things are so much clearer, and most importantly, Mark has instilled so much confidence in us with his expert knowledge and friendly manner, that we have already taken action on the next step in our journey towards incorporation. Prior to the consultation, Mark requested minute details about our tax position, portfolio structure and other matters, to ensure he could customise his recommendations to us personally.
He put a lot of work into this as was evident from his detailed report. we now have a road map set out ahead of us now.
Big thanks Mark :-)... Read More

PRA confirm new increased BTL stress testing and underwriting standards

We have already had 0.5% (now 0.25), for nearly a third of a typical 25 year mortgage term. New stress testing at 5.5%, is way to over cautious. The PRA are again interfering when they clearly do not have a clue on strategy.
Also, have finally heard on BBC2, news that many private landlords are selling up because of the effects of the forthcoming Tenant Tax, hike. I hope this spurs many more landlords and tenants into action... Read More
