  1. cheers Caroline - this approach is being tried currently. good to know there are ways of undoing the scheming ways of an underhand agent.
  2. Hi All, I hope you are all well, I have a scenario which I need opinions and expert advice on. · House almost purchased (value 800/900k – residential home not BTL) · 5 days before completion buyer received call from solicitor saying ‘the seller has pulled out’ no reason given · Buyer called Estate agent immediately who said ‘we contacted your solicitor to get an update and gave them 3 days to reply with an update of progress if no reply received seller will pull out’ apparently no reply received so seller pulled out
  3. Hi, Does anyone have a lodger agreement template they can forward to me or provide a link of where i can get one? Also if taking a deposit from a lodger should it go in the deposit scheme like you have to do with tenants deposits? Thanks
  4. thanks for your reply tim. i chased (asked the missus to chase) the estate agents. just hit them with their responsibility of shouldnt have sold a house without an EPC quite sternly. gave them the option of getting it done for me now or face a complaint to the estate agent body. they accepted they will get the EPCs done. result.
  5. this govt seems to be on its last legs as it is with the goings on of the last couple of weeks plus lack of brexit progress god knows what scandal is around the corner.
  6. Cost is obviously a consideration here, however I don’t want to cheap out totally as I want to give a good service to tenants and also want the carpet to last. They have requested wood/laminate in the hallway. I have been looking at onlinecarpets.com, but do not have any idea on how much I should be spending to get the ‘half decent quality but reasonable’ aim met. Also same question for underlay. Any advice?
  7. I personally never bought into the northern powerhouse idea. Yes with the investment in the area prices of property would rise but when really looked into it the figures aren't high enough. The projected rise (I think) was 25% over 5 yrs. So buy a place now for 100k and in 5 yrs its work 125k. I dont think that is enough in property, needs to be hitting 150k really. Further the monthly rental profit after taking out all of the costs including managing agent (10-12%) leaves about £150ish on average last time i checked. That's not enough either. Tieing up 3
  8. Craig - where abouts are you based? If near Essex can you please share the EPC contact?
  9. Thanks for that link - my properties do not appear - i searched using postcode. Is this a failing by the solicitors who i completed the purchase through? should they have not ensured this was include in the sale?
  10. Hi All further to the original query, my properties were purchased within the last 3 years.All properties require an EPC for sale - correct? I cant seem to find mine in my paperwork, at which stage should they have been given to me?
  11. Good work Sarah. I was going to say get the advert written and do every single little thing you can, have AST agreements printed, I usually hand out a single A4 sheet giving all details of the property/rent/deposit etc, it also includes a checklist of all documents i require - get all these printed. (People who provide the most paperwork make it to the top of my pile of potentials) Also in your advert ask people to bring the required documents with them - those that do are organised and will hopefully be better payers. Can still do block viewings, if its that hard to ge
  12. Hi Sarah j, it is a bit trickier to let just before Christmas but not impossible by no means. The way things are someone somewhere is always in a pickle - you are in a pickle because you need to rent out the place. Someone else will be in a pickle looking for a place and will be thinking there is nothing available at this time of year. I've let out close to Christmas before. Just don't panic and give to the first person just to get it rented. Could end up with a bad tenant - so still be picky. Worst case scenario keep it empty until you find the right person. With regar
  13. Hi, My personal opinion is 5yr fix during these uncertain times. I think ultimately depends on how much more the deal is pm compared to the 2 yr fix.
