Landlord Action Raises £18,000 For Charity

Landlord Action Raises £18,000 For Charity At “Rumble With The Agents” Boxing Event.

On Thursday 21st May 2015, Landlord Action hosted a first for the property industry – a white collar charity boxing event. It was a sell-out success with nearly 300 estate agents, landlords and developers attending to help beat the fundraising target and collect more than £18,000 for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.

Whilst guests enjoyed a three course dinner, the twelve boxers from Savills, Life Residential, Rushfield Ltd, Panther Securities, Winkworth, Infiniti Properties, Fraser and Co and of course Landlord Action’s very own Paul Shamplina, kept the crowds on the edge of their seats (some out of them and standing on them), demonstrating all the time and effort they have put into training over the last four months.

Special guest John Conteh, a British former boxer who was world light-heavyweight boxing champion, ran a live auction with everyone ‘digging deep’ for some incredible memorabilia.  Items included signed football boots, boxing gloves, shirts and even a studio session with musician and DJ legend Mark Ronson, which also included a signed guitar.

The sporting event, which took place at The Holiday Inn in Finchley Central, north London and was filmed by Channel 5 as part of a wider documentary they are preparing to air in June following the work of Landlord Action.

The night concluded with a speech from Founder of Landlord Action, Paul Shamplina, who thanked all those involved in the evening, with special mention to his wife Rita, of whom he said was instrumental in helping to organise the event, and to Peacock Gym in East London who partnered the event to provide a fully structured and supervised boxing training programme for the participants.

Paul added: “For a while now we at Landlord Action have wanted to run an event to support a children’s charity and we chose Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity for all the incredible work they do in providing emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. Being an avid boxing fan there was no better way to raise money for a very worthy cause than to bring together some of my property industry peers for a “rumble in the ring”. Bring on next year”.

Precise Treatment Reduces Pain

Detail needs experts. Expert time is worth it when it saves you a costly mistake. Main objective: Get the property back. Best action: Very precise treatment.

Serving a notice is actually the most important part of the possession process.

It isn’t complicated but one tiny error can cause dreadful problems.

That’s why we say, don’t DIY and don’t use internet amateurs. It’s not worth it.

1. Compliance Errors
If the tenant doesn’t leave at Step1, the notice had better be valid. Because then it has to go to court. Any little error can get a case thrown out. And you have to start all over again.

2. Attempting Short-Cuts.
In an effort to be quick, some internet services aimed at landlords are using short-cuts around the process. But if the tenant doesn’t leave (50%) these practices can backfire at court and the case thrown out.

3. Trying to Save Pennies.
Internet services have mushroomed and landlords can expect to get what they pay for. To get the process done PROPERLY it takes a certain amount of time for an expert to look over a file and be accurate. Our fees cover that expert time.

Chasing courts for dates, arranging advocates and preparing court papers is time consuming. Especially if you’ve never done it before.

Some landlord and agents have served notices themselves. They believed they were saving a few pounds but it often ended up costing them more.

If you lose a claim, the court can order you to pay the tenant’s defence cost, which can run to hundreds or thousands of pounds.

Our in-house Solicitors are there to get your property back as fast as they can. And we protect landlords and agents from themselves.

As experts, we know that in the rush to get things done, errors can happen. And those errors can can come back later to mess up your case – and the whole process has to start again.

You can speed things up – give us accurate information quickly. Help us to help you.

There are services on the web who will prepare papers BUT they get you to pay the court-fee separately and get you to sign the court papers – so in fact they don’t represent you!

If your notice (at Step1) wasn’t drafted or served correctly you risk wasting your court fees and losing a whole lot of time because of a small error.

We won’t let your case anywhere near a court until we have checked every little detail. To make sure you don’t waste time or money, at Step-2 we first only charge part of the fee.

If your notice is fine, then you just pay the balance of the fee and we issue the claim. If there is a problem with your notice or paperwork, we will advise you what to do next.

Courts take the view that possession proceedings can make someone homeless. So they are very careful. If there’s any error in the notice, they throw the case out. It’s the process. Get it right or lose.

If the notice is invalid, you have to start all over again. The weeks or months you’ve waited are wasted. If there were rent arrears, there are now more.

If there weren’t rent arrears, they might now start. More fees. More lost rent. And still no possession. Tenants can be alerted to making a counter-claim.
