Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 8th February, 2020 If you’ve reached 50 years of age with no retirement savings in the bank, there’s no need to worry. Saving for the future is always a daunting prospect, and sometimes, life can get in the way. However, it’s relatively straightforward to build a sizeable savings nest egg in a relatively short space of time. All you need is a strict saving and investing plan.Step oneThe first stage of this plan should be to open a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). The tax benefits offered by SIPPs are desirable and can help you save more money in a shorter time frame.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The good news is, anyone can contribute to SIPP up to the age of 75. So, even if you’ve reached 50 with no pension savings, you can still take advantage of this tax-efficient wrapper for the next 25 years.Basic rate taxpayers contributing to a SIPP are entitled to tax relief at 20%. Higher and additional rate taxpayers are also entitled to tax relief, although the exact amount you receive will depend on your own financial situation.Basic rate taxpayers can contribute up to £40,000 a year without attracting tax penalties. The tax relief available for basic rate taxpayers means that if you contribute £8,000, the government will add an additional £2,000 on top taking the total to £10,000.Similarly, if you contribute £20,000 a year, the government will add another £5,000, taking the total to £25,000. These additional tax benefits can really help save for the future.Invest in the stock marketSIPPs also allow you to invest in the stock market. Any capital gains or income received from these investments are tax-free as long as they remain inside the wrapper. However, you might have to pay tax on the money when it’s withdrawn.Investing your money is the best way to grow your savings as fast as possible. For example, over the past three-and-a-half decades, the FTSE 250 has produced an average return for investors at 12%. That compares to the 1% offered by most savings accounts on the market today.Powerful combinationThe combination of SIPP tax benefits, as well as investment returns, can be compelling. For example, pension contributions of £20,000 a year, or £1,666 a month, would attract tax relief of 20%, taking the total to £25,000, or £2,080 a month.Investing this money in an FTSE 250 tracker fund would yield a total nest egg of £1m after 15 years of saving, that’s assuming an average annual return of 12%. These numbers show how straightforward it is to build a sizeable pension nest egg in just 15 years. Even if you don’t have £1,666 a month to contribute, you can use the same strategy to build a significant retirement pot in a short time frame by taking advantage of SIPP tax reliefs and investing your money in the stock market.center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Formation of the concept was to consider contextual architecture with the least influence on the virgin garden and to seek for close relationship with the natural environment. Finally, a villa was designed and built named Grey Villa which not only essentially relates to the nature in a traditional way, but also is trying to have interaction with the context in a modern way.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiIrregular rocks and soaring mountains leaded us to design a light and orderly project to respect the surrounding environment. Utilizing basalt stone as a vernacular material enriched this connection with the context. Using the grey color and the grey monumental volume induces a neutral content. The building tries to unite to the context, despite formal appearance of the whole volume with various subtractions and additions. The construction has the potential to benefit daylight in all directions which creates different shades and shadows. It also enjoys great views over northern heights as well as southern plains, river and the main road.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSave this picture!South ElevationSave this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSpatial organisation is formed in 20 square meter gross area with 2-meter cantilevers on the first and second floor in 4 directions which leads to 100 square-meter built area. First floor dedicated to living room and kitchen is accessible via 2 light-weight metal stairways in the yard. 1st and 2nd floors are connected by a cantilevered stairway to solve the gross area challenge and to meet spatial requirements as well as playing a fundamental role in shaping the form of the building. The upper stairway leads to the roof which is functioning as an observation surface over natural scenery.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiThe form is designed in a way that the user seeks for connection with the nature when trapped in the building and suddenly experiences different views through consciously created openings. Grey villa is the representation of a modern approach, modern color, modern volume, modern connection with the nature and the reflection of modern thought… It’s settled in a peaceful way in the nature.

He received a bachelor’s degree in economics at the University of Utah and currently holds an active Utah broker’s license. September 29, 2017 2,574 Views center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles After the hottest July on record for the Salt Lake City area, during which my air conditioning unit worked overtime, I noticed a performance slump along with wet carpet in my basement. So, I turned off the AC and called a repairman. He showed up Monday afternoon and simply removed an internal panel, cleaned the drip tray that captures the condensation from the evaporator coil, and unclogged the ¾” drain pipe. I paid a $120 service fee and realized: Had I taken a few extra minutes, I could have saved myself $120, multiple phone calls, and two days of no air conditioning.Of course, effectively managing repairs for numerous homes across different cities, counties, or even states is much more challenging than doing so for one’s own home. That’s why many lenders and investors hire a vendor partner to develop and execute a successful repair program for their REO or SFR assets. So, what should you look for in a repair management vendor to ensure your repair dollars are maximized?Understand the Scope of the RepairHad I really understood what it took to repair my AC unit, I could have done it myself. Similarly, many lenders and investors want to fully understand the scope of repairs, including all the deficiencies of the asset compared to the comparable properties that are available in the neighborhood. Having dedicated, trained vendor partners in the field that are in tune with the local market is essential. Without their input, including photos, descriptions, and their commitment to the best strategy for the asset, you won’t be nearly as effective as you could.Communicate Regularly with Your Vendor PartnersBeing a thousand miles from an active repair represents an issue in and of itself. Good, effective communication is the key to providing assurance that work is progressing as expected. Regular phone calls that ask the right questions and provide immediate direction are essential. In some cases, traveling to the asset, or scheduling a third-party to inspect the repair process on your behalf, may be necessary.Perform a Final InspectionDespite best efforts, issues can arise that prevent a vendor partner from completing a project on time, such as weather delays or back ordered materials. Having realistic expectations set at the beginning of the project and updates as the project progresses prevents needless hand-wringing as the deadline approaches. Final inspection and signoff prevents unsatisfactory work from being accepted.Everyone wants to get their money’s worth for any service they purchase. At Green River Capital, we adhere to general best practices that can be customized with our clients’ budgets and preferred vendors. This includes providing an accurate scope of all needed repairs and where to most effectively spend the funds. After repairs are authorized, we then oversee repairs through to completion, while working to stay within budget and on a reasonable timeline.

Fewer delinquencies attribute to the strength of loan vintages in the years since the residential lending market has recovered following the housing crisis. Additionally, 11 metropolitan areas experienced small annual gains in their serious delinquency rates—mortgages that are more than 90 days delinquent. The largest gains were in four Southeast metros affected by natural disasters in 2018.Panama City, Florida, had the nation’s highest serious delinquency rate of 2%. Every state, for the exception of Minnesota, saw a decrease in serious delinquency rates. Minnesota’s rate was unchanged from 2018.Eleven Core Base Statistical Areas/Metros saw its serious delinquency rate increase, most of which were located on the East Coast.”We are on track to test generational lows as delinquency rates hit their lowest point in almost two decades. Given the economic outlook, we are likely to see more declines over the balance of this year. Reflective of the drop in delinquency rates, no state experienced a year-over-year increase in its foreclosure inventory rate so far in 2019,” said Frank Martell, Corelogic’s President and CEO.Unchanged were the share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30-days past due, remaining at 1%. This stat peaked at 2% in November 2008 and was 1.2% in January 2007, just before the financial collapse.Individual states are moving to improve the amount of homes being foreclosed. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed several new laws into effect earlier this month aiming to curb New Jersey’s foreclosure crisis.“The foreclosure crisis has hurt our economy and jeopardized economic security of too many New Jersey families,” Murphy said. “Our communities cannot succeed while vacant or foreclosed homes sit empty or while families live in limbo. I am proud to sign these bills into law [Monday] and get New Jersey closer to ending the foreclosure crisis.”Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Hearing (June 11)Quicken Loans Monthly Home Price Perception Index and Home Value Index for May (June 11)UMich Consumer Sentiment Index (June 14) About Author: Seth Welborn June 7, 2019 1,375 Views Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Checking in on Interest Rates Next: Black Knight Announces U.S. Bank Implementation Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

(C) No. 759 / 2020 [Arushi Jain V. Union of India] whereby this Hon’ble Court had, inter alia, directed that the Central Govt. shall pass orders for all State Governments and Union Territories to ensure that salaries and emoluments of Doctors and Health Workers, who are frontline warriors, are paid in a timely manner”- IMA Tells SCThe plea states that It is a matter of public knowledge and in public domain that the doctors working under the three Municipal Corporations of Delhi [(i)North Delhi Municipal Corporation (ii) South Delhi Municipal Corporation (iii) East Delhi Municipal Corporation] have not been paid their salaries for a number of months.The plea states that while performing their duties selflessly and tirelessly, the doctors are not seeking any special treatment from any authority.”However, the minimum basic and fundamental right of the doctors and other healthcare workers is that their monthly salaries / emoluments / allowances etc. are paid to them in a timely manner and without any delay. This is the minimum basic requirement even for the bare animal existence of these doctors and healthcare workers,” the IMA states in its contempt plea.While highlighting the tireless performance of doctors in the present scenario, the plea states that doctors are still being forced to face the humiliation of running from pillar to post with a begging bowl for even getting the payment of the monthly salaries / emoluments / allowances etc., which are due to them from the authorities.This, the plea avers is a grave and serious prejudice to the Fundamental Rights of the doctors and other healthcare workers under the Constitution of India, including under Article 21.The plea states that the continuing contumacious conduct of the Respondent Authorities in refusing to pay the monthly salaries / emoluments / allowances etc. of the Doctors in a timely manner on a monthly basis has compelled the doctors to express their serious protest in this regard by making complaints, thereafter holding dharnas / agitations in a completely democratic manner but did not yield any result. In this light, doctors and health workers were then forced to resort to a hunger strike when 5 Resident Doctors of Hindu Rao Hospital [under the North Delhi Municipal Corporation] had sat on an indefinite hunger strike from 23rd October, 2020 and which ended on October 29. At the time of filing of the instant contempt plea on October 28, the salaries had remained unpaid for months. As of today, salaries for October and November remain unpaid.The top court is expected to hear the case tomorrow.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
