  1. Hi guys I rent out a small cottage I paid £299 one off payment to Ideal in Oct and they replaced £900 worth of parts (Ideal Combi boiler 2012) excellent I thought! But now the combi is leaking app and no pressure ( which was the problem before due to crack in tank) there’s no hot water OR heating ,rang Ideal who said because the parts where in with the one off payment for call out charge etc the parts aren’t covered with warranty!! CAN YOU RECOMMEND ANY BOILER INSURANCE COMPANIES? I tried D&G but boiler is more than 8yrs old, I don’t want to keep shelling out on it. Many thanks Diane 🔥
  2. Hi Derek the seller is a lady who now lives abroad the landlord with the lease is Urbanpoint and he uses BPM to manage his properties, lots of complaints about BPM all over. So if I buy the flat I’m going to have to deal with BPM so obvs very wary given their track record. Sorry if it wasn’t clear Diane
  3. Also after researching the management company they’re doing the same shady tricks all over according to the reviews!
  4. HELP guys, I’m after some advice please, I’m currently a landlord on a house ( no issues at all) but I’m now on the cusp of buying a beautiful flat when I received most of the legal pack from my solicitor. After reading it the seller (+5 others tenants) took the Managing Agent for the landlord to FTT and won in 2016 plus and issue with them in 2018 but it’s not clear what that was about. Basically they were hiring there own company contractors to do minor jobs and charging a fortune! It says there has been a big improvement since but tbh I’m very wary this company will try it on again with MY future tenant! I’ve asked my solicitor her advice but would really appreciate your advice on this dilemma. Do I walk away from Landlord & their Management Company? Many thanks Diane
  5. Thanks for the advice/help Julie. Diane
  6. Thanks for that info David you’ve been very helpful. Cheers Diane
  7. Hi all I recently purchased a BTL house on the 22 Dec( it’s not rented out just yet) do I have to inform the local council about tax etc? Many thanks Diane
  8. Hi all, I get my 1st BTL on tue (but no tenants as of yet obvs but hoping to get a letting agency onboard FM) but I keep being rejected by the insurance companies for LANDLORD INSURANCE!! Is this because the house won’t have any tenants/tenancy agreement in place for about a month (hopefully)?? Everything else has been plain sailing. Very frustrating, wanted to get all legal stuff sorted beforehand or am I being to ambitious? cheers Diane
