  1. Hi all, Just helping to enquire on behalf of a friend of mine here in Hong Kong. They are in a position where they hold a flat containing subdivided rooms and have a mortgage on the property. These flats have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard last year and they are now considering their options in terms of extracting the equity. Just wondering whether there is the option to remortgage the property without raising too much suspicion and whether anyone can assist with this. From what I understand, the property strictly speaking is not fully compliant to local regulati
  2. Hi all, I have an arrangement with a family member whereby the property was purchased by my sister and essentially "verbally gifted" to me to help me onto the property ladder. We are currently in talks of several scenarios in order to extract the equity/cash from the property in order to help me to build my portfolio. One potential case would be to sell the property and cash in on the current value; apart from the initial capital gains tax, are there any other law/tax penalties we should aware about if she was to transfer a lump sum to me following the sale of the property to

  4. Hi all. I am looking for a solicitor for a property I want to buy in Hull. Would be great if I can get a recommendation for one who is tried and tested. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi All, I am wondering if anyone knows of any regulations for front door locks on a standard BTL flat? I am currently getting quotes for composite doors to replace an ageing wooden door. (FYI They seem to be averaging between £850-£1050 supplied and fitted) Apologies that I don't know the term for these types of locks so I will explain. The First lock type works so that when you close the door, you are then unable to move the outside handle and the door is 'locked' from the outside (much like a night latch). You would then need to lift the handle and lock the door with the key
  6. Hi forum members, I'm based in London but looking to invest in a BTL in manchester. Can anyone recommend a conveyancing solicitor based in the area? Many thanks
  7. Hi folks, I am looking at an auction property and have been reading over the legal pack, there are some areas i am unsure of the correct meaning, i was wondering if any other investors or person/s from a legal team could help myself and any other people in the future with an issue. What is the exact definition of the following, 'Not to assign underlet charge or otherwise part with possession of part only on the premises'? Any replies would be greatly appreciated by myself and others in future. Look forward to your responses.
  8. Hi all, You may already have seen the Law Society's comments and subsequent news coverage of the latest amendment to the Finance Bill 2016. Clauses 77 and 78 give rise to an income tax liability for property disposals in the United Kingdom. The Law Society was concerned that: the clauses were introduced hastily and with no formal public consultation; and the wording of the clauses implies that buy-to-let investors could be affected If so, property disposals could attract income tax bills as high as 45%, rather than capital gains tax bills of 28%. We have covered the topic in depth

  12. I need to prove to court that I had a residential property on the market in 2008 or 2009. I can't remember dates or agents or anything useful to my case. The property is in Mansfield Nottinghamshire. I live in the US. Who should I ask? Where should I go for help? Unfortunately, the sale fell through. Would agents keep records of properties they marketed but did not sell?? Desperate need of your help. Thank you. Holly Warren
  13. Hello everyone! I have a very unusual property law case. I have been trying to get advice from about dozen of various property law solicitors as well as taking some actions but unsuccessfully and no one knows what to do with it…. In 2007 my husband and I bought a leasehold property (1st floor maisonette) with a converted loft. The loft was converted in 2004. When we bought the property it was repossessed. We used recommended solicitors, who were based in Scotland. Only after the purchase was sealed I found out that the loft had a separate title and what’s worse it was not transferred in
