    Yes, I have paid for them. I think there is a 14 day cooling period but I'm not sure what to do? If they go belly up - isn't there a 'body' that steps in to uphold the policy?

    Does anyone have...

    Just home from being up North for a few days and the new printer has arrived. It is lovely. I just can't get over how quick and quiet it is and all the lovely features it has. I'm printing bank...

    You should be entitled to rent a room allowance. I hope you get the depression sorted. Running helps enormously. Sorry to hear you lost your mum at such a young age.

    You only realise a loss if you sell for less than you paid for the property. My concern is that if there is another big price correction and landlords who are highly geared go straight into negative...

    I did exactly the same. You need to compile your records in a spreadsheet to make sure you are claiming the correct amount. EG, say you remortgage at £100k, you then buy a property at £90k and you...

    The above has always been my understanding, but I was wondering if there are any HMRC documents to back this up.?

    In my opinion, if HMRC regard letting properties as a business (as they do), I...

    Well I had to go back to the drawing board. I was about to sign for the new printer when I noticed the box was soaking wet and all open at the back. I refused delivery and cancelled the order.

    I prefer less borrowing. In 2007 properties dropped by about 30% (some even more). If you owned a property and had, say an 85% LTV, as many landlords did - all of a sudden 30% is wiped off the...
