    Yes I think this house originally separated in 1998 and remember the contribution was not called a development contribution, nevertheless the Council was able to find it had been paid

    No matter how high the integrity of the parties is, I am a firm believer in clear incentives being in place. This does not happen with real estate sales, as the extra commission gained in securing a...

    I have wondered this too. Perhaps the super agents are not going to the less costly agencies.
    Two agents from different, reasonably large agencies, have offered 2 percent or a fixed cost. But they...

    We started with a hearing and went into mediation by mutual agreement, so the adjudicator mediated at the hearing.

    You can recommend to the tenant that they have third party insurance to cover if they damage your property, eg burn it down. So far I haven't bothered doing that.
    I am not aware of any cover you can...

    Is it a fixed term tenancy? If so they have only the two weeks after moving in to contest the rent, I think.
    I had the same thing happen to me this year. Miserable blighters didn't stop complaining.

    Absolutely and I have that. However most companies only go to 20k (per property). That wouldn't last very long with a big property.
