Graffiti Problems on Your Rental Property?

While a piece of Banksy artwork on the side of your house could see resale value rocketing, generally speaking, graffiti is bad news. Whether you’ve been the victim of a one-off act of vandalism, or your property is situated in a prime graffiti hotspot, knowing how to deal with rogue spray paint properly will prevent any permanent damage being done – and keep the property commercially appealing. Off the shelf products Whether you’re wandering around your local DIY superstore or shopping online, you’re likely to see a host of graffiti removal products that promise to work wonders against unwanted paint. You’ll find wipes, sprays, and brush-on solutions – but it’s very difficult to find any products that have more than a small handful of good reviews. The reason is simple; there’s nothing that comes close to the effectiveness of calling in a graffiti removal specialist. The kind of products that...

Water Leaks in Your Rental Property – What Are You Covered For?

It’s the call that we all dread – a tenant telling us there’s a water leak somewhere in the property they rent from you. Dealing with water leak damage isn’t just costly; it can also be extremely time-consuming and disruptive – both for you and your tenants. As such, having the right insurance in place can save some considerable headaches. As you’ll know if you compared landlord’s insurance before now, not all policies are created equal – so, it’s useful to know some of the terms you’ll find on quotes and policy documents – and look at exactly what kind of cover is provided. How did the damage happen? Before we dig into policy specifics, it’s important to explore the causes of water damage – and the different attitudes to water leaks that insurances companies can take. Whether or not you’re covered by your insurance policy at all often depends...

Section 21 is going, but let’s have a say on how it goes

Firstly, let me repeat the words I said to Richard Bilton in a TV interview I did with Panorama at my office two summers ago (an interview which lasted just seventeen seconds): “There is no such thing as NO-FAULT Eviction under Section 21”.  There is always a reason why a landlord wants possession.  According to the survey we carried out on LandlordZone, 58% of the time it is down to rent arrears and just 0.5% are because the tenant has asked for repairs to be carried out – known as ‘Retaliation Eviction’. Most of the time tenants will not know the reason because landlords do not have to give one.  There has never been any specific data, but The Lettings Industry Council is calling on its members to send out surveys to their landlords and letting agent databases to find out how many Section 21s are being sent out and...

Make Sure You Insure What’s Behind the Door – Shocking episode of Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords

I think viewers of this week’s episode of ‘Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords’ will find it hard to believe that the damage to a property in Cardiff was caused by just one person. Of course, the show highlights some of the more extreme cases of bad landlord and tenant behaviour, but it is also a stark reminder that this can happen to anyone.  If you don’t have landlord insurance specifically covering Malicious Damage, or the skills to repair the damage yourself like builders Stuart and Steve in this week’s case, the outcome could be even more costly and distressing. Earlier in the year my team received a call from Stuart Haines. Stuart and his best friend Steve are seasoned landlords with a combined portfolio of 30 properties. As builders who have worked together for 15 years, they have renovated and let many properties, but never had they experienced anything like this…and...

Living in the same building as their serial bad tenant… a couple’s worst nightmare

It’s been heavily publicised that a large percentage of the UK’s retirees are struggling to live off their pension, so it’s no surprise that some over 65s have turned to renting out rooms in their home, or other properties they may have, to boost their income.  However, in this week’s episode of Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords (Monday 15th July, 9pm, Channel 5) viewers will see landlords, Jackie and John, a retired couple from a seaside village in Norfolk, locked in a battle with their non-paying tenant which is making their lives hell.  What makes it even worse, is she lives in the same building as them. Jackie and John live in a converted Victorian building comprising of four flats. They live in one and rent their upstairs flat. On the recommendation of someone else in the village, they let the other flat to a lady called Katey who said she...
