    Just to clarify, what I meant was that the requirement comes from the tenancy terms if they include it.


      I now believe that one of the tenants had Covid just before vacating and was in a period of Self Isolation, perhaps this is why the Agents suggest a "Deep Clean" to protect the next tenant. It would also explain why when the next tenant was due to move in, our Letting Agent put the tenancy start date back 2 weeks. (which obviously meant we lost 2 weeks rent)

        Hello everyone,
        I have had an offer accepted on a property purchase, subject to a surveyors report of £395,000 in England.

        I am currently looking at surveyors but i just wanted to know where i stand in terms of stamp duty, costs etc.

        I have phoned 5 different solicitors

        I don't know the answer, but if true this would be an absolute outrage.

        Some little kid buying their own home where granny left them a quarter of a house that is rented out pays 3% additional tax

        Someone who buys 8 properties pays 1%

        Pity us all

        Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

        With mortgage rates going up fast...

        I'm more concerned at the possibility of a winter of unheated rental properties and then the tenants expecting me to deal with the resultant mold.

        I think the deposit of five weeks rent is more trouble than its worth. Not taking deposits means being a bit more selective in choosing tenants.
        Considering the value of the asset the tenants are trusted with the deposit rules are crazy. But thats only one of the red tape obstacles to being a...

        The daft thing is that because people will owe them the money, it won't even affect the energy company profits.

        Looking after a significant amount of someone else's money is not a trivial undertaking.

        I spent most of my career designing and building business solutions to replace manual processes.
        So I have a reasonable idea of what's possible.

        There's nothing in it but downside...
