    house valuation

    hope someone can help me with this one. sorting out the finances of divorce, problem is my parents signed there house over to me about fourteen years ago, though they carried on paying the morgage which has just ended. they did this as my mum is disabled and they did not want to loose the property for medical bills.
    i do not get any rent from them and they pay all the bills for the upkeep of the property, its only really mine on paper.
    the ex is now saying that i have to sell the property which is roughly about £100,000. what would be the situation here, could i be forced to evict my parents, and what would the value of the house be with them staying put, they are both 65 years old.
    desperate for any advice on this one.

    You need to consult a lawyer on this one - it doesn't really relate to general property letting.

      This is really nasty, since your parents signed the house over to you as a gift, it belongs to you, completely, even though they paid the mortgagee and all the bills. This sort of thing is where trying to safeguard your property against forced sale can lead you. Eric is right you need a lawyer but don't get your hopes up. You could consider selling your house back to your parents via a mortgage but that would mean you have to give your ex. some of the proceeds, if you can prove that you did not actually pay for the house, and neither did he, that just might be very little.
      I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

        As Eric says, you need detailed advice.
        Was the 'gift' evidenced by anything in writing other than the Transfer Deed, for instance? Was there a Trust Deed?

          This is pretty much me, although my agent is very good and doesn't need much "rein".

          They have a high street presence, which tenants like (makes the agent more real) and have multiple people to answer phones.
          And they have a mostly female staff, which is a big plus for ...

          Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

          Paperwork shouldn't be an issue in claiming unpaid rent.
          Unpaid rent is usually easy to prove - the tenant's paid some and has obviously been renting something.

          The issue is usually that the tenant doesn't have the money they owe.

          The lack of agent and paperwork will...

          We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

          Tenant moved in...

          As said above, unless being a landlord has been a childhood dream (weird if it were), i vote to sell and move on. A lot of experienced LL's are selling up anyway due to a multitude of rubbish from the govt, in your position, simply reap the reward of your late fathers good financial decisions and enjoy...

          by jtufty
          Hi,

          I rent a property. The initial 6 months of the AST ends in Jan 2022. The tenant is very nice and she asked yesterday if she can stay on for another 6 months.

          Is it a simple case of just giving her another AST contract to sign? Im sure it is, but wondered if theres anything...

          Why "in light of the minimal tenancy paperwork" do you think you will have a difficult time retrieving the money owed from the tenant?

          As above, check the Section 21 is valid, see link to flow chart below. If the Section 21 is valid and the tenant is still in the property then...

          My property portfolio has always been managed by agents, originally through necessity (I was a long way away), latterly through choice (I don't want to be available 24/7). I use small independent agencies and I keep them on a tight rein - but it works for me! I like to have that distance between me...
