  1. Hi, My landlord is wanting to send estate agents round to value the property because he wants to put it on the market. He has not yet served me with a Section 21 notice so I have no idea when he is expecting me to vacate but I would have thought a valuation would be more realistic once the house is empty and after he can do some redecorating, etc to get it ready for selling. At the moment, we have been too stressed over searching for a new home and we have been having a mad declutter and we have half packed boxes everywhere and the housework has become less of a priority, so al
  2. Hi All, I am in a bit of a pickle at the moment, I felt I was finally able to afford my council flat that I have lived in for over 15 years, I put in my first RTB application March 2015, and a valuation was done for the property, after the valuation came out, I found that I was not able to afford it even after the London discounts so I didn’t take up the offer, fast track November 2016, the same year I made another application and this time around the price of the flat had reduced by £100k as per the new valuation done in November 2016, so I took up the offer, applied for a mortgage and g
  3. Has anyone been following this story from the House of Commons library re: rebanding of properties purchased after April 1st 2000 1 Council tax valuation bands (1) The Secretary of State shall, by regulation, establish a new set of council tax valuation bands as specified in subsection (4) to apply to all dwellings bought or sold after 1 April 2000. (2) Any dwelling that has not been bought or sold since 1 April 2000 shall continue to attract council tax according to the valuation bands set out in section 5 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (different amounts for dwellings
  4. Hi all I was just hoping for some help with this. I bought a property for £235k 2 years ago. There is a ground rent accumulator within the lease that starts at £250 per year and doubles every 10 years until the 50th anniversary, so in other words in 50 years the ground rent will be £8k per year. The lease is 125 years, so 123 years to go at present. Obviously I would like to remove this ridiculous clause. I have requested a valuation from the freeholder to extend my lease by 90 years and thereby reduce the ground rent to a peppercorn. They have quoted £22,950 + £845 legal costs + £57
  5. At the beginning of July 2013 I submitted a joint application with my son to purchase my council flat. I have been a council tenant for over 27 years and am therefore entitled to full discount. Although my son is not on tenancy he has provided proof of living with me the whole time by submitting 12 months bank statements, driver''s licence and mobile accounts to the address. The application was only sent on 21 September (over three months delay when statutory time limit is 1 month). After waiting a considerable time I sent a RTB5 - no acknowledgement or communication received from
  6. I'm fairly new to the forum, and am trying to find out how to value the remainder of a life interest in property and would be grateful for any help. This is the situation: A property owner accepted an amount of money from a married couple (both retired) in exchange for a permanent licence to occupy (accommodation for life / life interest) in an agreed part of the property. After ten years of living at the property, they have announced that they are divorcing. One of them wants to emigrate and is asking for a lump sum in return for him giving up his life interest in the property. His
  7. Hi All, In light of the budget 2013, I am now and can finally afford to buy my flat that I have lived in for 11years, it was valued in 2008 and after then i have since installed laminate flooring and a satellite dish without permission from the council. Can i ask them to use the details they have on record from 2008, if they have it so they don't have to visit or do they need to visit to do a new valuation? would i get in trouble? should i remove my flooring or install a carpet.
  8. My car was written off in a no fault claim. My insurers have only offered a guide book value. The policy states that any claim shall be based on the market value at the time and current dealer advertisd prices are much higher than the guide book value. I am thinking off claiming for the difference between the two in the small claims court. I would be interested to hear if anyone has taken this option.
  9. Hello everyone. My husband and I have applied for a loan to add on to our crrent mortgage with our current lender. We are renovating and lots has gone wrong and been ncovered so we need the money to get it finished. We googled property prices and found or home appeared to have 85% LTV in it for the amount we require. The mortgage adviser was great...we told her we werent convinced our home was worth more than the googling showed but we were approved and she said a surveyor would call and arrange to come round and value the house. That was saturday....i called today and she said that she wo0uld
