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...
In my experience the agents only partially work for the seller.
Twice, once I have started negotiating to buy a property and do due diligence, the agent has ceased to work with other buyers, and...
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...
Good question. He was very nice to us, but we were in the right and very helpful.
I have to say experiencing how well it worked, if this ever happens again, ie malcontent tenant who has lost the...
We started with a hearing and went into mediation by mutual agreement, so the adjudicator mediated at the hearing.
At one stage when it looked as if agreement wouldn't be reached he asked us if we...
The tenants put in 48 pages, we put in two.
Plus pictures and emails but all cross referenced.
Happy to put the two pages on my private messages.
The first thing the adjudicator said was 'The...
We mediated so Order probably wouldn't be useful. The application number was 14/00749/WN
As Flyernzl said, it is up to the tenant to prove their case, not Rockabella to prove their claim is false....
That is right.
Where there is negligence, eg industrial accidents, it ends up in court but I don't think the victim takes the case. The outcome is a fine and a payment to the victim. But the...
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...
We had exactly this situation.
Tenant took us to the Tribunal requesting a $100 rent reduction, both backdated and going forward, claiming the house was not worth that, and that aspects of the...
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.
Thanks for pointing this out
I am going through this exercise at the moment.
I struggled to get a breakdown of costs per property...
Doesn't discuss valuation by a Quantity Surveyor though.
investments as well I think.
Last time we were with them we got the lowest rates, and the banker emailed me these new rates. So must be for investments.
Because houses aren't built with these features any more.
Like-for-like must refer to quality, I guess.
And size of course. You can rebuild whatever floor plan you like, but the same size.
Absolutely and I have that. However most companies only go to 20k (per property). That wouldn't last very long with a big property.
A payout would be quicker. Then you could repay the bank. If you go for rebuild you have no rent coming in, and interest still to pay.
So they do depreciate the property.
Yeah gobbledekook. They should give an example of how to calculate the depreciation but I guess they don't
I had no idea this was happening.
Like Leftette, I would love to know their justification.
Does sound dishonest/fraudulent if not in the fine print.
I see what I can find out too
Thanks I have read the article.
So the policy pays for the QS after the event only?
Would be nice to have some financing for QS now but I guess that is unlikely.
Yes they would rebuild the same size and quality.
If an older house with nice wood, decorative features, and high ceilings etc, these of course would not be replicated.
I am getting a QS because I...
First I haven't done a subdivision.
I would start this way:
Ask a surveyor, council, rough costs and timeframe
What about drainage? Ask a plumber?
Permission - you can get a meeting with...
We weren't sure.
What we knew was that the husband leased the house without the wife seeing it. She didn't like aspects of it.
Also personally I think the rent was high for a family; certainly not...
The insurance company will just say the house would cost less to rebuild than the sum insured.
