    Help new business

    Hi All

    Wanted to pick your brains.

    My partner & I are looking to start a cleaning business soley dedicated to rentals/new builds etc - we have know idea where to start with price structures etc so need some input from everyone

    I remember back to when I was in a rental, and what the agents cleaners idea of cleaning was - disagreed highly with mine and had to clean the whole flat from top to bottom.

    So please help us out with any ideas on the pricing you have been charged etc.

    Many thanks

    Georgina & Andy

      Yes, they have a demo account where you can play with £75,000 ($100,000)

      I did put $10k into one copy on April 4th and its now on a profit of $4,915, so nearly 50% in just under 4 months.

      I guess as Im only playing, I should "invest" all the funds and see how they...

      I will post here but it may get moved - but at least it gets a bit of exposure to begin with lol

      I've used a platform called etoro for 2 or 3 years to hold shares in some cruise stocks (don't laugh) - mainly because we do 4 or 5 cruises a year and the shareholder benefits can be quite handy....

      Has he paid the rent on June 15th and then again on July 15th?

      Sounds obvious but have you double checked you have done all the correct paperwork and deposit registration/certificate - triple check it !!

      Personally, going forward I would not liaise with the tenant in any way...

      I'm going to keep this short as its a long story. I have a tenant who signed the new tenancy contract on 15th June and then on 27th June I received about 20-25 messages and pictures the evening saying the flat was unliveable due to pests and that he had only moved in the night before. I went round to...

      Even if you were my opinion would stay the same, i think that given it is a converted house the noise isolation and other issues are not the same as separate purpose built flats, so having one as a rental will have far more of an impact upon the other owners who live there. It really is a one way street...

      Not sure if this is the best section to post in, so please move if it is considered best place elsewhere.

      I have had ownership of a flat, one of just four in a converted house, for many years. There is a simple flat management structure; the four owners are directors and have one share...

      This is not my understanding - perhaps others can clarify. I thought you had to give your usual notice if you were leaving before the end of the LLs notice period....

      Hi All, I have been living in the same house for 7 years and have just been served a form 6A giving 4 months notice to vacate. The owner is returning from overseas and wants to live in the house. Whilst disappointed I get that this is one of the perils of renting but it has raised a few questions. ...

      Yes, there are some who seem to have fairly consistent positive performance over a period of years. I would be skeptical, though. Could be explained by them having holdings in a few companies (e.g. Amazon) which have done very well over that time(?) I would suspect survivorship bias.

      I suspect he is a professional scammer, i do not believe anyone can be such a wimp as to be running scared over a few spiders etc, he may be doing this to simply be paid off to leave the tenancy etc. I would engage a solicitor given he will try all he can to get money out of you, offer to end the tenancy...
