    After much procrastination I need to ask some questions about Loans.
    Sometime ago I posted something along similar lines, but it's now clearer to me what we want to do.

    My wife and I live in Merseyside where we have paid off our residential mortgage about 4 years ago.

    We have a Buy to Let with a 70% loan at £90K

    I work as a Consultant...

The landlord opted to replace it, but has bought a significantly smaller...

    Advice please - tenant potentially challenging Section 21
    I was an unexpected landlord when I inherited a property recently. Originally I thought I wanted to carry on but then the tenant was nagging about small repairs and when my contractor went in he said the house was very messy, there was a smell of cat urine and a lampshade and door had been damaged....

    Long Term Tenant - how to protect both LL and Tenant
    Hi All,

    I'm hoping for a little guidance. I'll almost certainly be following up with some professional advice but hopefully some folks here will have been in a similar situation and can offer some advice. I have done a quick search but not found anything obvious.
