Lloyds Banking Group aims to become the UK's largest private landlord hedging against inflation

This sounds absolutely great but let's hope all these apartments don't end up like our investment. We purchased an apartment in the heart of Cardiff Bay in 2007. It was an absolutely fabulous apartment. We were told it was going to double in value. Unfortunately what they didn't take into account was the fact that the Company who built the apartments cut a lot of corners when building them and we are now left with an apartment that we can't sell as it is not mortgageable. The build quality is absolutely appalling - they did not put any fire compartmentation in. The balconies are becoming dangerous and a lot of other problems too numerous to mention. Our Management fees have gone up considerably (as have a lot of other apartment blocks) and we are now faced with a bill of £30,000 per apartment to get everything fixed. Hope all these apartments that Lloyds are investing in don't end up the same!... Read More

EICR has thrown a complete spanner in the works?

My son is an electrician and does a lot of work for a letting agency. He does not charge per item and if he has a list of things to repair then he just charges his hourly rate that he is there for i.e. 2 hours if that's what he was there for, plus the materials. It does seem to be rather nit picking to price for each item (I would have thought it took him longer to quote for the job than actually do it),... Read More

Let your property to the Council for Emergency Accommodation?

I also did this through my local council and it was a nightmare! We had just refurbished the flat with brand new carpet etc. They had it for approximately 1 week and I had a phone call from my management company to say that they had had a host of complaints early that morning to say that there was loud music coming from the flat with about 30 teenagers outside using foul language. I immediately telephoned the chap that was supposed to be looking after it for the council and demanded that he tell me what was going on. It appears they let a 16 year old have the flat who them promptly had a massive party. He had candles burning and the wax spilt all over the carpet and there were also burn holes as well. I immediately demanded that the contract was cancelled but it took another month to get the property back to how it was. Never again! It's not actually the council that deal with everything either they sub-contract to another company. They also put people in there that are hard to house anywhere else.... Read More

Trouble is we won't even be able to do that in a minute and sell up if they decide to clobber us with a higher rate of capital gains tax.... Read More

Return of rent deposits after 11 year tenancy?

Reply to the comment left by James Mann at 05/05/2020 - 09:30
Totally in agreement with you Veronica. I am in the same boat. All my tenants pay on time and have been with me for years. I have not increased any of my rents for years which means they are low for my area but I have always said 'better the devil you know' and any rent increase is completely negated if they move out....
