Beware Of The Shits and Sharks! - Avoid Becoming A Victim Of Rogue Traders

Beware Of The Shits and Sharks! – Avoid Becoming A Victim Of Rogue Traders

Beware Of The Rogue Traders,
Shits And Sharks!

There are a number of rogue traders back in the property investment community as the UK property market picks up pace again following the financial crisis that saw all but the most serious property investors continue to purchase properties.

The emergence of rogue traders and dodgy dealers is nothing new in property investment industry as scammers try to part willing investors with their savings by offering property deals that don’t stack up, costly property investment educational courses and worthless seminars and workshops designed to provide some cover for a high pressure pitch fest full of ill conceived propaganda designed to trigger reckless spending.

There are a number of controversial rogue traders who have been exposed in recent years, however the threat of legal action prevents me from naming and shaming the latest batch of scammers that have been brought to our attention at the present time, but rest assured these rogue traders will be exposed among the property investment community very soon!

Have you ever wondered why some people are incredibly successful property investors whilst some
people just can’t seem to get it to work for them? There are any number of driving forces behind a person’s desires, but what are the best ways to achieve success?

To be a successful property investor you need 3 key elements:

1. Specialist Knowledge
2. Mindset and Belief
3. Support

There are plenty of ways to acquire specialist knowledge,  and there are even ways of gaining support on your property journey, but people find that they struggle to get themselves in the correct mindset mainly because of an unsupportive environment.

At lease that was the case until now!

On Sunday 19th January 2014, founder of the Property Investors Network (PIN), top UK property educator and best-selling author of “Property Magic”, Simon Zutshi, is running a one off,  one-day seminar in Birmingham specifically designed to help aspiring property investors develop a winning mindset to achieve their property goals or anything else that they desire.

This is not a gimmick or paltry excuse to make people part with money, this is a unique opportunity to understand a vital element that can make the difference between success and failure for many property investors.

There is a cost involved to attend the live event, but if property investors don’t invest in themselves and their education, they are already on the way towards failure.

Don’t become a sad statistic, take action and make it positive!

Without the correct mindset, many would-be property investors, struggle, flounder, give up and go under because they weren’t mentally ready for the perils and pitfalls of their property journey and they were not prepared for the mental stress that can go with property investing.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Birmingham on the 19th January, this inspirational one-day seminar is also going to be streamed live on the Internet to maximise the benefit to property investors who want to achieve their property goals, more details in the video.

Click here now to watch a short video from Simon who will explain what the day is all about and how you as a property investor can benefit from it.

We are sure you will find this unique opportunity really useful and we will be watching the live stream with a great deal of interest and we will be taking plenty of notes during the day as there will be some incredibly valuable nuggets of information that Simon will be sharing.

This is a unique opportunity for property investors to have a sneak preview behind the scenes of Simon Zutshi’s highly successful Property Mastermind Programme.

We highly recommend you take this golden opportunity and learn from this unique behind the scenes experience because it will help you acheive your property goals!

59% of Private Rental Sector (PRS) landlords refuse to accept applications from tenants claiming benefits, including me!

Landlords claim that tenants who do not receive any form of welfare support are far more reliable when it comes to paying the rent on time and generally looking after the property.

In a survey of more than 1,000 UK landlords by website SpareRoom.co.uk showed that over half of the landlords surveyed had a  “No DSS” clause on their adverts. I too have the same clause and whilst I do not want to discriminate against people I do feel it is necessary to protect my rental income and my properties.

Landlords taking part in the survey were asked why they would not rent out their property to housing benefit tenants:

  • 30% said non-benefit tenants were more reliable,
  • 47% said they did not want the hassle of dealing with payment problems.

SpareRoom.co.uk called for changes to the way Local Housing Allowance (LHA) was paid, joining calls from the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) and homeless charities “Shelter” and “Crisis” to return to direct payments to landlords, which could increase the number of PRS properties being let to tenants claiming state benefits.

Matt Hutchinson, director of SpareRoom.co.uk, said: “The coalition government’s planned welfare cuts to housing benefits, coupled with the lack of affordable housing in the UK, could have a devastating impact on families and individuals relying on the state for help with living costs. But it seems that landlords, who have had bad experiences with housing benefit tenants, are reluctant to help ease the pressure caused by a rental property shortfall, favouring private tenants instead. The move to change the way Local Housing Allowance was paid in 2008 was designed to give those on housing benefits greater responsibility for their finances, but what this poll shows is that the change has had overwhelmingly negative repercussions for British landlords. It’s clear from this survey that a shake-up of the current system of paying housing benefit to the tenant is desperately needed, and reverting back to the old structure, where landlords receive rental payments directly from the council would be a step in the right direction.’

According to the survey, 87% of landlords have had problems with housing benefit tenants not paying rent on time and 11% claimed to have had tenants who had stopped paying rent altogether. I unfortunately fall into both these percentages having bad experiences with benefit tenants and very little help or advice from my local authority.

In the survey, UK landlords said that problems associated with DSS tenants included late rent payments, damage to the property and problems arising from suspension of benefits.

74% of landlords said they would not take a tenant on housing benefit even with a working Homeowner acting as their guarantor and I must agree with them.

Once bitten and all that, but one thing is for sure from my point of view – NEVER AGAIN!!!
