    BMV investments/brokers- Ahuja?

    In April this year, I paid £350 deposit to register with Ahuja Group's BMV property finding service. They claim to find and offer BMV deals to clients, and the sourcing fee depends on the BMV %age - the higher the discount, the greater the sourcing fee.

    I was offered 2 properties, neither of which met my criteria, but have had nothing since early June. I have sent numerous emails, made numerous phone calls, and completed an online refund request, but still haven't had my money back. In fact, none of my calls or emails have received any response.

    Has any one else had a similar experience with tthem or any bother property finding service? I'm resigned to losing the £350, not a big deal, But I just hate paying for something I don't get. My opinion would be to give Ahuja group a wide berth.

    Why not try suing AG? Issue a £350 (+ Court fees) debt claim in Small Claims Court- unless AG defends it, you get judgment by default.

          Hi All,

          Ajay ahuja, well where to start. There is several ways to attempt to get your monies back. You can serve court proceedings on him via moneyclaim online or get under his nose and make him pay you just to get rid of you. Thats what I done. I complained to The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales for his professional ethics or lack of them. They started to look into the matter and I received my reservation fee back within 10days of £3500. I think he just wanted to see the back of me!

            BMV brokers/ companies

            Afternoon fellow landlords.

            Was wondering who you would recommend to source BMV deals from, have the finance in place but there seem to be a lot of time wasters around. Any good companies you would recommend/ have used?

            Regards

                  Have had a look at the following sites:

                  www.ahuja.co.uk - seems ok but lack of info

                  www.propertyhorizons.co.uk - naff site, wouldn't trust them

                  www.bmvbrokers.com - descent site, not a massive amount of info but will

                  give them a call

                  will give these a try, was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

                    Hi Freddie,

                    Will PM you, only comment is do not approach www.ahuja.co.uk as lets say I can supply you with a list of over 100 investors who have used him in the past and would never do it again. Will not enter into discussion on a public forum on this and issues surrounding this. Best to say that experience and information given results in not to use.

                      Cheers Jax, just been on the phone to www.bmvbrokers.com - seem excellent for the first call. Will try a few others and report back.

                      I thought Ahuja looked a bit like that

                        Hi Freddie,

                        I had someone email me just the other day via this forum regarding Ahuja. He was not a happy chappy, I am in the process of helping him with advice to recover the monies due to him by Ahuja.

                          Unbelievable - seems there are quite a few sharks in this perticular pond. Good luck with your claim.

                            UPDATE.

                            Just done a deal with BMV Brokers (www.bmvbrokers.com) - 34% market value, yeild 11%, excleent service and fantastic portfolio of properties.

                            For your information these chaps seem very good and worth a call.

                              I had an email from someone wanting to purchase a property that we are dealing with. It seemed that what they were doing was apparently fradulant. They were asking us to increase the asking price of this property and they would offer the full (increased) asking price but the vendor would not see a benifit of this increase and infact take a £23,000 reduction. This £23,000 deficit is there to pay the companies 'finders fee' and their solicitors fees.

                              Seemed a bit odd. They suggested a name of the person that would be dealing with the legal side of the purchase for their client who they are sourcing the property for but a quick check on companies house shows that the company of solicitors was not in the best of shapes.

                              I havent had much to do with BMV purchases but is this normal practice?

                                How will landlords on here react to houseprice declines and renters with lower disposable incomes?

                                What strategies do you have in place?

                                Are there any landlords to be waiting to pick up some bargains in the short to medium term?

                                Some people are always forced to sell (the three D's, death, debt and divorce are traditional estate agent's friends).
                                But I think most people simply won't do anything - buy or sell

                                Unfortunately for the housing market it often talks itself into a slide. Buyers who may be already wary are going to consider delaying their purchase now in case of a drop, hoping to bag a bargain. Anybody that HAS to sell may well be forced into accepting lower prices which then re-sets ceiling prices....

It just goes to show how thick most of these so called experts are. I mean you have to be some kind of thick to believe that there is going to be some kind of huge sell off when...

                                Quick question - is it possible to buy a house that needs a complete refurb (but nothing structural or anything major) on a buy to let mortgage? Looking at a house that requires a full refurb to let out. Plan is to refurb straight away after completion and then let out. I know you can do this via...

                                Houseprices only matter when someone is buying, selling or borrowing money on a property.

                                I don't expect people to have lower disposable incomes.
                                In a recession people tend to either have the same income or have a huge change in living standards.

                                It’ll effect different people in different ways, Landlords that are highly leveraged may struggle just like homeowners may struggle if they work in a sector that has been put on hold due to lockdown.

                                My point is he says you have nothing to lose by going to uni as you won't pay back the loan if you don't earn over £25,000 because of your degree, but in actual fact it is possible to earn over £25,000 without a degree - I find myself earning around £40,000 a year doing work that I don't need a degree...
