Landlords’ Barometer – #21: When a tenant asks to be evicted

Welcome to “Landlords’ Barometer #21” with a rundown of trending topics for landlords.

The summer Budget tax reforms for landlords are still a hot topic!

1. Budget beating strategies for landlords!

We teamed up with Rental Income Tax Advisors (RITA) to produce a video to help landlords deal with the changes.

2. Do you need an office to run a property business?

This post was inspired by an interview feature in Your Property Network magazine about property people who have broken free of the office.

Nick and I are featured because of our mobile office a.k.a. our motorhome.

This article certainly makes for a compelling reason to work in the cloud and systemise a business.

3. Six tips to create community and harmonious households

With shared accommodation becoming increasingly popular and an increasing number of agents happy to rent out individual rooms, this post collates some video tips on how to create harmonious households.

4. Tenant requests an eviction notice

We are unfortunately hearing more and more of this and I myself have a tenant in rent arrears who has been told by the council to stay put in the property and get evicted, as that is the only way she will get into a council house.

My tenant has now amassed severe arrears and it’s only thanks to the support of Landlord Action that I will shortly be getting the property back.

5. Congratulations to Property Tribes member, EYE contributor, and top landlord and tenant lawyer David Smith on his appointment as policy director for the RLA!

David is incredibly knowledgeable about the PRS and he will be a great asset and addition to the RLA. He’s also a regular contributor to Property Tribes and we reprise our interview with him about “Right to Rent” legislation.

6. A couple of dates for your diary:

The Autumn Property Investor Show, the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of UK & International residential property (and services) presented in Europe each year returns to ExCeL London for its ‘Autumn edition’ on October 9 and 10.

Reflecting the investor appetite for ‘Northern Powerhouse’ locations, regional specialists including Knight Knox, Sequre and Keppie Massie will display a broad selection of opportunities available in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Nottingham, Yorkshire and Glasgow.

In addition to ‘traditional Bricks & Mortar’, categories including property finance (including crowdfunding), student rooms, luxury international resorts, housing  associations, furnishings, and franchises will be represented in the hall.

A broad selection of landlord and investor services will also be displayed – along with a variety of “show only” exclusives.
