Re: Newbie guide to landlording!

You mention 'selling'the flats. You will need to look into capital gains tax (CGT). With regard to renting, you are paying an agent to manage the flats..they should help you with paperwork ( let's assume they want to keep the management job). I'd pose some of the questions to them...after all, you a...

Re: SLA share purchases

On a positive note, Mitsubishi UFJ dumping a significant number of shares means that SLA will be hoovering them up. The SLA share buyback programme is on until 27 March.

Re: Galliford Try - Half Yearly Report.

One thing that might be worth pointing out with GFRD was the 1 for 3 rights issue last year. I'm expecting a similar cut on the final dividend. (After all, the current yield before today's announcement was over 10%). Let's hope that they negotiate a good deal on their compensation claims and that th...

Re: SLA share purchases

£200 million at £2.50 per share = 80 million shares, thus saving 80m x £0.21 = £16.8m divi saving from tranche 2 buy backs to add on to the 12m divi saving from tranche 1. So, maybe this will help protect the divi from falling assets under management? Maybe we should consider this to be positive for...
