In the news...
Are you on the right side of the law?
A ten minute browse through any of the Landlord or Buy-to-Let property magazines will usually reveal at least one story where a rogue landlord has been fined for failing to protect the safety of his or her tenants. It seems these articles increasingly relate to Houses of Multiple Occupation or HMOs.
Inheritance Tax is back on the political agenda.
When the UK economy finally returned to its pre-financial crisis growth level this summer, Chancellor George Osborne was in receipt of other news that perhaps only he welcomed: Inheritance Tax (IHT) bills of £3.4 billion had almost touched levels last seen in 2008.
Will the start of landlord immigration checks affect you?
After what has seemed like a lengthy wait, the Home Office has announced the pilot region for the landlord immigration check requirements under the Immigration Act 2014.
The initial areas will be Birmingham, Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley and Wolverhampton. The requirement will come in to force in those areas only on 1 December 2014, with other towns and regions to follow at unspecified dates in 2015.
