    And "I can't think of anything worse than..." [insert event which is non life-changing and perhaps even, in the grand scheme of things, somewhat trivial]".

    Often these questions turn into a critique of the survey, more than people actually completing it. Although I am somewhat conscious of this, I can't help but suggest that the first question doesn't...

    Same here. None of my tenants that were claiming HB at the outset have ceased to do so during a tenancy.

    I think I get the gist, but FWIW your post / question is far from clear. When I first read it I thought I may have inadvertently jumped to a post midway through some discussion, but post #1 does...

    The fact that you have got a good tenant in place seems like the only real argument in favour of keeping it, to me.

    Less than 5% gross is a poor yield. The fact that you are not paying service...

    Based on that - and leaving the issue of the oven aside completely - I think I would seriously consider S21* if I thought I could re-let the property easily.

    You can't get blood out of a stone so it seems likely that the S13 route will result in gradually mounting arrears.

    As others have indicated I think you have the choice either to do nothing and...

    In my experience touching up paint works if wall is freshly painted and if the paint is the same (i.e. from the same pot) - otherwise it will be patchy. I would expect in this case that any walls...

    I would venture that the stock market has less downside risk at the moment than London property.

    I would favour Russia, Hong Kong, oil services companies, probably Japan.

    I wrote to my freeholder's agent asking for permission to do a couple of things. Nothing difficult or complicated - just a letter.

    FWIW I would agree with those advising caution. Tax changes make BTL less attractive than it used to be and now does not seem the obvious time to be buying in. It is more important than ever to do...

    Actually, looking at it again, the same applies to question 5. "Sorting" documents is imprecise/ambiguous.

    It's a lot better now.

    I would still advise changing question 6 to present tense, and changing the word "sorting" to something more descriptive.

    I've had a look. On the plus side, very clean layout. However I would echo a couple of previous comments i.e.

    1. Mixing of past and present tense. This can make questions ambiguous.

    Complement.




    I agree. Full marks for initiative - and by all means try this route, but don't be too surprised if nobody goes for it.

    Maybe consider getting some work with a letting agent?...

    I wouldn't if the situation was explained as in post #1. However, the landlord may just hear from the agent "tenant has ignored your response and got a dog", which is a different kettle of fish.

    I think you need to refer to your council's written HMO standards.



    Agreed. This has been my experience.
