    The Deed of Assignment which I used included the following terms:

    Gosh!

    I could probably write an essay on this one, but simple advice is that if you want to stay in the property you are legally entitled to within the terms of your tenancy agreement (which,...

    This is just a business decision you have to make for yourself.

    The way I look at it, if I pay off a mortgage with a 4% interest rate, I just have ask myself "Could I have made more than 4% annual...

    I had this issue a few months back and after asking on LLZ I came to the conclusion that by far the easiest way to do it is to assign the original tenancy via a deed of assignment. It'll need to be...

    What type of HMO are you thinking of?

    If it is a non-licensable HMO let on a single contract to four or fewer tenants, loads of mainstream BTL lenders will lend.

    If it requires a licence,...

    Agreed if students are changing course (I was the victim of this myself at one point), but in the OP's case they are simply undergrads going from second to third year -- so they should still have...

    True, although the OP's post makes it sound like a new boiler was the only way to ensure consistently working hot water (assuming that having a plumber on permanent standby wasn't a feasible option).

    Thank you for the further thoughts on this to both Gordon999 and jpkeates; both very helpful.

    It sounds like to an extent these issues are a matter of taste, dependent on how close to the wind you...

    King_Maker -- thank you for your reply. I feel comfortable deducting that additional service charge amount from 2013/14.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on any of the other questions? I really would...

    If you want to get on the right side of the law, you'll need to disclose this to HMRC. Be warned that there may be some penalty to pay, but it might be less than you think....

    I've just come up with another knotty question to add to the above:

    If you are not currently registered for a self-assessment tax return, you'll need to register if your rental profit is more than £2500 in a year. You can do that on the HMRC website. It's very easy....
  16. some knotty "is it tax deductible?" questions

    I've been doing my 2013/14 tax return and I've come across the following issues on which I'd be hugely grateful for some advice:

    You'd easily let it to a top quality professional tenant in either location (to be honest that would go for any decent studio anywhere in zone 1). Main risks are (i) the rental yield will be...

    Can you name one? (I'm not sniping at you, just genuinely curious). The legitimate reasons why other businesses sometimes prefer cash are, to my understanding, to avoid (i) the bank charges and (ii)...

    Actually, I realise that the £22.20 charge for the insured scheme is a one-off charge (not annual), so whatever the answer there will in fact be no need for me to re-pay this. The rest of the...

    Hello all

    I have a fixed term tenancy ending on 23 June, and I have served a s.21 notice in the hope that the tenants will leave on that date. The deposit is protected with DPS insured scheme, and...

    Although it sounds absolutely correct that a 3% BoE base rate would lead to BTL SVRs in the region of 7%, am I not correct in thinking that new deals and re-mortgages would probably be around the 5%...

    I think these two posts sum up the situation perfectly. No landlord half a brain would want to evict a good tenant just because the tenant makes sensible requests for repairs, and where there are...

    Just thought I’d update you as I’ve had a bit of good news.

    I put in an appeal regarding this via the lender, explaining at length why I thought the valuation was too low. I’ve just heard back,...
