Landlord Action Scoops Top Supplier Award

Landlord Action Scoops Top Supplier at Landlord & Buy-to-Let Awards.

A year on from acquiring law firm status as part of their perpetual efforts to raise industry standards, particularly in the field of eviction, Landlord Action has been announced the winner of the Legal Supplier category at the Landlord and Buy-to-Let Awards 2014/2015, held on 26th November 2014.

The awards took place at Stoneleigh Park in Coventry and were presented by TV’s Ground Force star Tommy Walsh. Winners for the forth time, Landlord Action was praised for its contribution to the industry and its leading stance on many landlord related matters.

Having regularly campaigned for landlords’ rights, Landlord Action is well known amongst the industry as a champion for landlords, previously fighting against unfair interest rate rises and criminalising squatting. This, coupled with their pioneering decision to become regulated by the Solicitors Regulation  Authority, helped scoop them this year’s award.

Paul Shamplina, Founder of Landlord Action, attended the awards and commented “This really has been an incredibly busy year for Landlord Action. The team has worked extremely hard to adapt to the company changes whilst ensuring we continue to provide an award winning service, and it looks like we have achieved this, so I am extremely proud. We have even more planned for next year, as we evolve our service to meet the ever changing needs of the fast paced buy-to-let industry and further support our network of landlords.”

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.
