I agree with this approach.
I would assume growth, in real terms, of zero - and consider that negative growth is a possibility especially in London*.
* At least in the medium term, on the basis...
Being more verbose and continuing the logic maybe I could have said something like this, which I will call the Parable of the Agents:
There are good agents, which tend to get recommended, attract...
Yes, that is what I was suggesting. Say for instance tenant leaves with a month's rent arrears. Should be straightforward to claim through the courts (although of course no guarantee of getting the...
Thanks for the replies.
The situation I referred to here was not a possible future loss, but rather taking a loss of rent rather than the alternative double-or-quits option of taking tenant to...
I have a situation not dissimilar to a couple of recent threads here and here.
I have experienced losses and/or been exposed to risk by the inactions of my former managing agent. Said inactions...
As an occasional buyer, I have seen HMOs advertised through regular agents and if I was looking for one the first place I would be likely to look would be a well-known property portal. As others...
I would be inclined to advise you to invest in some punctuation.
Unintentional pun, one presumes.
Not the same thing, I would say.
Essentially, petrol stations all buy much the same product for much the same price in a fairly free and large market. An increase in cost of the product affects...
Thanks - I have learned something today.
The difference being...?
Presumably you have got an agency agreement which will state what notice period is required. It will also say if there is anything to stop you discontinuing agent's services during a tenancy, and if...
I was thinking that maybe a second derivative was required i.e. an 'unconscious humour from posters in the unconscious humour from posters thread' thread.
not right or reasonable.
e.g. "the unconscionable conduct of his son"
synonyms: unethical, amoral, immoral, unprincipled, indefensible, wrong
It sounds to me as if the house in question is best-suited to families in which case you might struggle to let it to the childless couple you would like to see there.
Most reliable option off the...
The tenancy agreement(s) would be a fairly watertight alibi, I would suggest, if it came down to it. As would being able to prove that you live somewhere else.
As to who is responsible if tenant moves out before end of tenancy, this has been discussed before e.g.
I believe(?) that the...
As I observed once (http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?47624-Duplicate-content-on-agent-websites) there is/was a raft of agents using a standard website. On this basis I would...
As in... become your own tenant?
Of the five agents I have employed to date, I have discontinued using three. Statistically (albeit with a very small sample size) -
Good or better: 20%
Fair or 'benefit of the doubt': 20%
Some agents are not useless. (Somewhere in the range 20% to 40%, in my experience.)
I would tell the FBI and NSA as well to be on the safe side.
From my experience of external cladding (two suitable houses in an area where it has been widely carried out, although mine weren't) the result may be a considerable cosmetic improvement. The houses...
