Please find enclosed 2 screenshots of my credit card transactions so far: 25 Licenses on it in the space of about 9 days at £360 each
I need some advice.
I have a kitchen to do on one of my houses. As I do approximately 6 kitchens a year.
For the first time in 20 years, I’ve had to tell the waiting tenant the kitchen is cancelled for now, because as you know, I licensed 25 houses in July and maxed out the credit card and have no funds left until we pay the balance approx 4th September.
Now come September, do I pay for and do the Kitchen or do I pay for your remaining License fees?
If I pay for your remaining License fees, the tenant has a worse house which contributes to their ill health. The kitchen could have been done in July. But doing it your way, it’s going to be at least October.
Please give me your thoughts.
Licensing, please answer this question as it’s important, especially when you come to inspect the house and you tell me the kitchen is below standard and why have I not repaired it.
There’s not a magic money tree you know, you have a fine margin on what you can buy, and normally I’ve got it right on buying what is NEEDED and what a tenant wants.
It NEEDS kitchen and the tenant wants it.
I and tenant don’t want nor NEED a License.
This doesn’t happen in normal life. You don’t get 100% of houses get the same expensive repair in ONE month. It just doesn’t happen.
Everything I and many Landlords told you from February is happening. All the things you said would happen didn’t happen. Are Licensing going to finally listen to the good landlords one day?
