REMINDER - CGT rules are changing in April 2020

I'm also interested in how the level of CGT is determined - 18% or 28%? I.e. if one sells at the beginning of a tax year and they are not sure whether they will fall into basic or higher tax band in the rest of the year. Or is the payment within 30 days automatically charged at 18% and any potential additional payment accounted for in the following tax return? Given this is coming into force in three months, I can't find any clear guidance anywhere.... Read More

How do I get the CCJ registered with the Registry Trust?

It is very interesing reading all the comments and the differing experiences. It seems to me that to some extent the registration or lack of is very court dependent and in some areas the courts employ a somewhat more flexible and logical approach. Unfortunately not in my area - not only has my money order (Section 8 related) not been registered when the judgement was issued back in 2018, but the Court in question is still refusing to register it now, when I'm enforcing it, having finally found the ex-tenants! The Court confirmed they received a notification from my enforcement agency that this judgement was now being enforced by them back in September. However, I just checked and was shocked to see there is still no record of the CCJ in the Register. When I called the court to query this, the official told me that although they have a note on the system that enforcement is in progress, they haven't got a copy of the Writ or proof of HC fee payment and hence will not action registration until they have those. Unbelievable, right? I'd have expected the enforcement agents to provide whatever is needed to the Court automatically, but it would appear this is also not done. So unless you keep an eye on, double check and force everything through, there is absolutely no effort on the part of the Court system to protect further victims of the same tenant crooks. I'm completely disgusted with this branch of the legal system.... Read More

I’m afraid that’s not the case. We got a Money Order for over £5k following Section 8 and it was not registered. I called the Court in question to ask and was told it only gets registered once we start enforcing. It’s a joke, it should absolutely be automatic.... Read More

Shelter blame B&Bs on private landlords!

Reply to the comment left by Luke P at 14/11/2019 - 15:10
Not only that Luke, but you also get a nice tax incentive to do so as B&Bs classify as holiday accommodation and therefore are exempt from Section 24. Less stress, lower taxes, what's not to like - right Polly? This woman is such an unbelievable demagogue, but what's worse, this nonsense gets lapped up by the general public. Apparently the wider populus has lost the power of all critical thinking!... Read More
