Maybe he hasn’t heard back from the other party because he hasn’t contacted them yet!
These people take care of complaints against solicitors…..

To add just a little to Dereks reply… I would suggest you grab a copy of ‘A pocket guide to investing in Positive Cash Flow Property’ by Margaret Lomas from your local library. On page 68 there is a section titled ‘Asking the Right Questions’. There are 20 – MUST ASK Questions. Its a great read IMHO, and I’m sure it would help you…[Read more]

There is an interesting chapter regarding trusts, in Margaret Lomas latest book titled: The Truth About Positive Cash Flow Property.
Chapter 6 – To trust or not to trust -structures and strategies. Page 97.
An excellent read IMHO.
If you are a handyperson, a coat of paint works wonders and really freshens the place up. Best Value for money for a budget spruce up.
You also might want to consider just replacing the kitchen cupboard doors rather than the whole kitchen.

Hi Don & Liz…. Cardiff area.
Hi Simon …. I’ll try Global. I used to like Leah Jay PM, but we didn’t get treated very well at all when looking for a flat for my son recently. I must add that all other PM’s we came in contact with were the same. Shame on them!

It is possible to paint tiles any colour you like with a special type of ’tile paint’. I am not sure if it is durable enough to use on a floor, but easy enough to find out from your local hardware or paint specialist.

Hi L & J,
My guess is that you would be a consultant, however you could clarify things by asking the Real Estate Institute in your State or perhaps the Department of Fair Trading might be able to help.
Sorry to hear about your situation. Your old property manager is certainly a dud, and you’ve done well to give him/her the flick. Lets hope the new one is a vast improvement.
