To be fair though, it was his banging on about it back in 2013 that prompted me buy some. 

Yes i should have bought in 2010 when watching him. But a touch of variety on his show wouldn't go a miss. Its become mundane and he is now a caricature of himself.

I have zero sympathy. BTL has been people who don't work exploiting people who do. I hope they all find themselves skint and unemployable.

Late partner's landlord claimed the deposit to replace all the cheap carpets as they had marked where the furniture had been. I got him to put the reason in writing. When she moved out we took th

Investing with Buy2LetCars gives you a monthly income

Over 70% of our funders have or had links to Buy-to-Let properties, often because our business models are very similar. A funder will simply loan us a lump sum of capital, and with that money we will purchase a brand new car and then lease it out through our sister company Wheels4Sure.

The income from this provides a return on their capital of between 7-11% p.a return, with the added benefit of regular monthly payments. These 36 monthly payments constitute the return of capital, so are also tax-free. The final payment in month 37 constitutes the interest gained during the term of your investment plus the remainder of the capital. If you invest as a private individual, we are obligated to retain 20% for tax purposes. However, if you invest as a limited company, the full gain is paid with zero withholding.

Its not sneaky, its totally gormless, man-in-pub tax planning.

The company was a scam. So was its advice.

Yep but saying that to the general public gets a lot of them to follow that advice even when it's an utterly insane thing to do (which it was).

Just received this, it has results but no data so it may be a poll of thousands, or may just be 6 folk outside the pub.

30% of surveyed London tennants are planning to move (more rural or out of London totally)

London rents dropping (some 40%+ ) will upset a lot of LL's profit/loss calculations.

Updates for info

LL problems that have been building during the "no evictions allowed" lockdown are starting to appear (skip to 10:00 for the meat) https://www.propertytribes.com/landlord-lens-7-fall-out-from-lock-down-t-127651934.html

UC backlog leaves LL's with tennants, no payments, and no idea if the rent owed will ever be backdated (or even paid) https://www.propertytribes.com/universal-credit-scandal-t-127651951.html

The tapered implementaion of "Section 24" tax is now complete, some LL's have moved from paying basic rate tax to 40% https://www.propertytribes.com/section-24-is-hurting-t-127651909.html

Depending on your view it's either great news that LL's are hurting and selling up or it's a nightmare as you can't / won't buy and there are very few places available to rent see https://www.dosbods.co.uk/topic/16687-rental-nightmare-in-coastal-cornwall-and-coastal-devon-iow/?tab=comments#comment-1081661

A website I'd not seen before advertising tennanted rental properties for sale - could be useful to track trends and see if the number of properties goes up https://www.vestaproperty.com/investment-property-marketplace?searchSessionId=c71e0489-6ff5-44d4-84d7-9ad62e0496a2&longTermTenant=true

At those yields - 5% 8% - why are selling???

Oh yeah s24.

These people cannot afford to have an empty house whilst the place sells.

Eho buy a place with a 3.5% gross yield??

And whod pay 18k to rent it?

In the last week, Ive seen two posters on the local FB going on about being kicked out of rented accommodation.

Both have kids.

One was asked to leave after Xmas. and the idiot did. I did not want to tell him that he should have sat tight for 6 months.

The other one has actually been told by the rental agent that the LL has to give 6 month notice rather than the 2 the LL told her.

This is the reason why a bunch of leverage amateur cretins should not be let near other peoples lives - well down Brown, you total cunt.

Both appear to be selling. The timing is suspicious. I reckon theyve used an accountant for the first time - the HMRC rental ad campaign must have finally sunk in and theyve had the harsh S24 reality pointed out to them.

LL will never record those voids on sub 5% yields.

Banks will be repoing.

 

 

Given how many of the LL's are levered to the nth degree,it likely creates a huge source of instability.

I suspect the £730 is an underestimate

'Citizens Advice found that in January, half a million private-sector renters were behind with rent, with an average debt of £730, and that 58% of them had no previous rent arrears.

Debt charity StepChange reports a similar number of struggling tenants, and estimates that 150,000 are at risk of eviction. It says £370m of arrears has been built up as a result of Covid, with some tenants managing to keep up by borrowing or cutting back elsewhere, as Austin’s family has done.'

It is an interesting thing.

Landlords think that if 150k of them sell their houses, there will be 150k homeless people.

Despite that thinking, they don't seem to understand that if 150k families are made homeless, there will be 150k landlords without a tenant.

Funny thing, logic.
