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 video below (taken from that presentation) to find out more about her work. We will be publishing more of these over the coming week.
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 all Julie’s precedent documentation, including:
Helping tenants to pay their rent and remain in their homes will also help:
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.
Julie and I (Tessa Shepperson) have gone as far as we can with the development of this kit. We now need YOUR help.
We need to know how helpful the kit as drafted is for your purposes, and if there is any additional content or guidance that you would like included. And any other comments you may have.
We are therefore making this ‘beta version’ of the kit available for a limited period of time at a 50% discount. For this, you will get access to the beta version for the next 12 months. However, if you provide feedback via our feedback form (and leave your name and email address) you will be upgraded to the new version, when it goes live, and given ‘lifetime access’.
This beta version will be available until Monday 19 April.
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 access to this version of the kit for 12 months. However, if you complete our feedback form (a link will be emailed to you after purchase) you will be given ‘lifetime’ access to the new version.
‘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 than 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 are planning to run training webinars which kit owners will be able to attend at a lower cost.
Purchases of the Plus version of this kit will be able to attend one of these webinars for free.
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.
For example if you are a Landlord Law member or have bought something before log in here.
(This link will open in a new tab or window.) Your username will be the email address you used at purchase. If you have forgotten your password you can get a new one via the login screen link.
Then come back to this page.
The page just says credit card but you can use your debit card too.
Note that if you are a Landlord Law member (provided you are logged in ) you will get an automatic discount of 20% and can also offset your Landlord Law points. If you have problems offsetting the points, note that we can refund the value manually if you let us know within 5 days of purchase.
You should also receive several emails – one will be a receipt for your payment, another will provide a link to access your kit later. You will also receive information about the Beta Kit feedback form.
If you have any problems you can get technical support via the green messenger button you will find at the bottom right on all pages.
