Star Letter Extra – 27/11/2015
Each week Mortgage Solutions rounds up the most opinionated and thoughtful comments of the week.

Limited company buy to lets to be sheltered from Stamp Duty hike

Stuart Wallace

Isn’t it funny how all these buy to let bashing tactics from the Chancellor are coinciding with the European legislation on consumer buy to let  changes already coming our way?

Majority of brokers tailor fees to client circumstances


The so-called ‘fee’ that lenders pay barely covers your time in basic processing – that’s not in any way, shape or form a professional fee.


If clients don’t wish to pay your fee they have the ability to shop around and take their chances that a broker not charging a fee can afford to deliver/intends to deliver the same service. As long as the client knows what the fee will be before they make any commitment, there is not a problem.

Our business is 100% referral you don’t manage that by upsetting your clients!

Buy-to-let market ‘not in the Chancellor’s good books’


So what is The Sheriff of Nottingham going to do in order to provide quality rental property to families that cannot afford to buy their own?

In years gone by, when I was growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, there was a large stock of very good quality council housing, on nice estates with plenty of green space, nice schools, shopping, surgeries and everything. It seemed to me that the majority of people lived in council properties and were decent, hard working and honest, and looking towards the time that they could buy their own place.

Now the Chancellor’s government members probably have never had this sort of problem – after all a lot of them have massive inherited wealth, and probably have no clue about ordinary working people. He seeks to make life harder for everyone. He is making error after error by trying to find ways of making ordinary people miserable to raise taxes by stealth.
