‘Rumble with the Agents’ looking for ‘Wish-Heroes’

‘Rumble with the Agents’ looking for ‘Wish-Heroes’

‘Rumble with the Agents’, the annual white-collar charity boxing event hosted by Landlord Action is set to return for the fifth year running. This year they are calling for participants and attendees to help them create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses through Make-A-Wish UK.

Rumble with the Agents is a unique opportunity for people with no boxing background to experience the wonderful world of boxing, in a safe and enjoyable environment. It is an opportunity to get fit, learn a new sport, meet new people and gain a real sense of achievement. Most importantly, the focus of this year’s event is to raise enough money to grant at least five critically ill children one life-changing and transformational wish each, which will be announced on the night.

Since being established in the UK in 1986, Make-A-Wish has transformed the lives of more than 12,000 seriously ill children by turning their one true wish into a reality. This year, Make-A-Wish wants to grant life-changing wishes to 1,200 children, they receive no government funding, so rely on the generosity of their supporters to make these wishes come true.

Neil Bookatz, who has attended all of the Rumble events and is a Patron of Make-A-Wish says: “We are absolutely thrilled to be working for the first time with Rumble with the Agents who are raising funds for Make-A-Wish through their white-collar boxing event. We are so grateful for their support, and the funds raised through the event will enable us to grant more magical wishes to children and young people fighting critical illnesses.”

Paul Shamplina, (founder of Landlord Action) who set up and runs the event every year alongside his wife Rita, added: “When we started this event five years ago we had no idea whether it would take off or not but this year we even have people on the waiting list to box who didn’t get to do so last year. I’m so proud of everyone who has made it possible for us to raise a collective £75,000 for various charities. This year will be extra special as attendees will see just what magical wishes are possible as direct result of their support – I’m really excited.”

Participants are not required to have any previous experience as a free fully structured and supervised boxing training program to ensure high levels of physical fitness and teach participants the correct techniques will be provided by BOXR in north London. With some places already taken, remaining spaces are on a first come first serve basis and compulsory training session will begin in February.

As before, the evening will consist of five fights, which will be three two-minute rounds each, a sit down three-course meal with unlimited drinks, an auction and raffle and hopefully some special guests.

Rumble with the Agents 2019, hosted by Landlord Action and sponsored by Hamilton Fraser, will take place on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at Holiday Inn, Avenue Banqueting, 58 Regents Park Road, London, N3 3JN.

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.
