  • Petition to redress the balance for landlords in eviction cases

    posted: October 28th, 2010

    Mike Weatherley, MP, intends to present a petition and raise questions in Parliament regarding rebalancing the law for landlords in respect of tenant evictions.

    The eviction process is currently very time-consuming for both landlords and the courts, which are already overwhelmed with cases, and landlords are suffering significant financial loss in too many cases where there is a clear breach of contract from tenants.

    Mr Weatherley intends to petition for changes in the law to speed up the eviction process where there is a clear case of either non-payment of rent or anti-social behaviour and improve the landlord’s rights to access their property in those cases.

    Utilising leverage to maximise your return on investment

    posted: October 19th, 2010

     

    Robert Kiyosaki said, “In the broad definition of the world, the word leverage simply means ‘the ability to do more with less’.” In terms of investment, leverage is defined as ‘the degree to which an investor or business is utilising borrowed money’; UK banks tend to refer to it as ‘gearing’. It’s also a key reason property is probably the world’s greatest money-making machine.

    Ask a bank for a loan of £50,000 to invest in the stock market and they’ll laugh you out of the building, but ask for £50,000 towards the purchase of a £100,000 property and the strong likelihood is they’ll give it to you, subject to affordability and/or rental income. Property has always been, and will almost certainly continue to be considered one of the world’s safest investment vehicles, and that’s why institutions and individual passive investors are so willing to lend against it. And that willingness of 3rd parties to lend is what helps make me and you money.
