‘Rumble with the Agents’ raises over £19k for Make-A-Wish UK

‘Rumble with the Agents’ raises over £19k for Make-A-Wish UK

On Thursday 23rd May, the fifth annual ‘Rumble with the Agents’ white-collar charity boxing event took place at The Holiday Inn in Finchley Central. The sell-out event, attended by more than 300 property professionals, raised in excess of £19,000 for Make-A-Wish UK, with the final total still being tallied, which will enable eight children with critical illnesses to be granted their once in a lifetime wish.

On the night, 10 boxers were paired for the five fights comprising three rounds each. Heckled and cheered on by friends, family and colleagues, each demonstrated the effort they had put into the intensive training over the last few months.

The incredible amount was raised from donations, a raffle and a live auction of sporting memorabilia, which every year Paul Shamplina , founder of Landlord Action, sources from far and wide in order to maximise the event’s charity donation.

Danielle Munday, Regional Fundraising Manager (South) for Make-A-Wish UK, commented: <i≥“Make-A-Wish UK would like to extend a huge thanks to Paul Shamplina and Landlord Action for allowing Make-A-Wish to be a part of this year’s fantastic Rumble with the Agents, raising in excess of £19,000 and far exceeding all hope and expectation! With your help, we will now be able to grant approximately eight transformational wishes to children enduring illness and treatment that most of us could never imagine.Our purpose is simple. We create life-changing wishes to children living with critical illnesses. Granting their one true wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They are given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and given the chance to make magical memories that they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold. We can only grant wishes with the help and support of partners like you. Thank you again.”

Paul Shamplina, founder of Landlord Action and brand ambassador for Hamilton Fraser, added: “I can’t believe this has been the fifth year we have run this event. It was never my intention to launch an annual event, but every year it gets better, we raise more money and the quality of boxing from the novices improves. This year, I really wanted everyone to be able to see the tangible results of the money donated and how it makes a difference to those it goes to. Make-A-Wish UK is such a special charity and I hope by next year’s event we will be able to show everyone pictures of those eight magical wishes and what it meant to the children that received them.”

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.
