    Things in this forum rarely make me laugh (cry, more like), but Ram's contribution above killed me. "...and get on with your life." I sort of had to tell this to myself recently, see....

    They sound awful. Like the lot I deal with.

    Erm, I'd probably give the leasehold advisory service a call tomorrow. Obviously, if they're doing f--k all about this matter - and they're legally...

    My Goodness...

    Where I live, the communal stairwells and exteriors of the blocks are presently being refurbished. They need it. They’re disgusting and I’m embarrassed to live there. The housing outfit (you know the...
  5. National Insurance Class 2 question....

    I’m a full-time teacher. Over the past few years, I’ve done some private work sporadically for outside students as and when they’ve needed it. It started off as just an occasional thing, but got a...

    Thanks for this. So, just to clear this up. Sorry, I'm a bit thick.

    Mr Bean tutors in English. He lives in X town which is 10 miles away from Y town, where a new student of his lives. He charges,...

    Help me please! Weird tax question!

    Hi guys,

    I posted here recently on how I've just done a tax disclosure on one of these HMRC campaign thingies as, over the past few years, I've sometimes done bits of private teaching work...

    When the transfer happened in this area six years ago, it was referred to as a 'stock transfer' in the paperwork. In short, XY Borough Council simply formed XY Homes and most of the staff in their...

    Quick question...

    Hi all,

    When a council authority are considering doing a stock transfer and setting up an arms-length organisation, are they legally compelled to invite their residents to vote for or against the...
  11. Thanks. This is very helpful.

    Thanks. This is very helpful.
  12. Renting out a room to a really filthy lodger...

    If I rent out a room to someone, I believe the first £4000 or so is tax exempt. As it should be. Fine – I get this. And then, when it’s above this amount, I’d have to pay tax on the “profit,” right?...

    Yeah....

    Yes, I have little doubt that Leaseholder-Expert’s views are more than valid. Whilst I was never a leaseholder under the council-owned system (the transfer literally went through the month I...

    Hmmm. Here’s the way I see this:-

    If you’re a social housing tenant, you’d be at a major advantage to allow an arms-length organisation to take over the running of things. From my understanding,...

    Taxation Pete: Thanks. Just filled out the form for this and also opened a different a/c. Not really sure how much longer I'll do private work for though. Will have to wait for other forms.

  16. Not really a property question but very much tax-related...

    I’m a full-time teacher. Going back about four years, I’ve done some extra tuition outside of my normal hours, which started out helping some colleagues' children, but, more recently, has become...

    I'm an expert on this, because I went through this very, very thing. I also am a leaseholder of a flat which is owned by an arm's length council outfit. I sympathise with your story. Sounds similar...

    Yup, it does. A surprisingly user-friendly document, actually. On the inside is a map of the court, and it has, highlighted in orange felt, what are regarded as the 'service charge areas' and what is...

    Good responses guy. Loving this forum.

    Did as you said Mr Leasehold expert, and my lease actually has a glossary within it that DOES define the building as 'the block of flats known as XXXXX.' :)
  20. Ok...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I checked my lease. It says I am responsible for contributing towards the costs of "repairs and improvements in the building."

    As building a shed would not be in the...
  21. Calgon's back with a new Leasehold problem!

    Hi all! Remember me?? Hope you're all well! Guess what??

    I have had a new section 20 Notice of Intention served (my third in about a year). The latest is for the ‘creation of stores’ for bikes and...
  22. Another question about the tendering processes...It's Section 20 day!!

    Right. I'm sorry to be all 'long' again but I have another tale. Will be brief. I love you all. I think this may be one for the likes of Tulisa and The Leasehold Key Master, but we shall see.

    As...
