Thousands have lost their jobs or are having to live on benefit – which is normally insufficient to pay for properties that were rented when they were in full employment.
Many landlords have just thrown up their hands and decided that eviction is the only answer.
Julie is a housing adviser who specialises in ‘Alternative Rent Arrears Resolution’ ie helping tenants in rent arrears.
In February 2021 we invited her to do a training webinar for Landlord Law members and we were all blown away by her presentation!
She explained to us how she was able to help tenants remain in their property on full rent with the rent arrears cleared – by sorting out their benefit and applying for grant aid. Most of us listening had no idea that there was so much grant aid available!
Watch the videos below (taken from that presentation) to find out more about her work.
Julie’s presentation was a revelation to many and I know she was contacted by many landlords afterwards. However, Julie cannot personally help all of the many thousands of tenants who are in arrears.
So we decided to create a course explaining Julie’s methods and giving links to the sources she uses, to help landlords and their letting agents do this work themselves.
If you get the +plus version of the kit, you will also have Julie’s precedent documentation, including:
Eviction should always be the last resort – and with this kit, you will have the means to avoid court action in many if not most cases.
All our content is hosted on a mobile responsive website, which allows you to read and study the kits easily, and watch the videos on most devices, including smart-phones and tablets.
The only parts of the kits which are perhaps best dealt with on a laptop or desktop computer are the forms. Otherwise, the kit can easily be accessed, for example on your smart-phone, while travelling or waiting in a queue.
Q: What if I can’t access the kit or if it does not work on my computer?
A: It should do, this is a standard WordPress website. However, if you have a problem, contact us via our ‘green button’ support service. If the problem cannot be resolved, you can claim your money back under our guarantee.
Q: I am based in Wales, can I use the kit?
A: Yes the kit will be suitable for you.
Q: I am based in Scotland, can I use the kit?
A: The kit is written mainly for an English audience and Scotland has a different legal system but the principles should still apply.
Q: How long do I get access?
A: You will get lifetime access.
‘Lifetime access’ means that you will be able to use the kit as long as this site is up and running (ie for the lifetime of this website). Although we only guarantee a 12 months access – so if the site gets taken down for any reason during the first 12 months after purchase, you can claim a refund of a proportionate part of your purchase price.
Q: I am a Landlord Law member – do I need the kit?
A: The kit is not available as part of Landlord Law membership (apart from the training webinar). But Landlord Law members will get an automatic discount of 20% if they are logged in at the time of purchase.
Q: Can I ask you questions about my particular issues?
A: The kit does not include any ‘one to one’ advice element. Although we may run training webinars in due course which kit owners will be able to attend at a lower cost.
Q: I prefer not to pay online – can I pay by BACS or cheque?
A: No. We only accept payment via our online system. However, you can elect to pay by either credit / debit card or pay pal.
Q: If I get the standard kit but then decide I would like the Plus version, can I upgrade?
A: Yes, but this will be conditional upon a payment to take account of the difference in cost between the two versions plus a £15 admin charge. To upgrade, contact us via the green button support service.
