Charles Berbeck 16th July 2016

Well done on West Brom action you did more than The Financial Ombudsman Service and Financial Conduct Authority put together to protect our rights for all borrowers.

Peter Mark 10th July 2016

Well done Mark on West Brom action. Looking forward to hearing similar progress on Bank of Ireland who have acted incorrectly all along.

Emma and David Hughes 7th July 2016

Thank you so much for all your help at Property118.com. We would never have had the result that we did against the West Bromwich Mortgage Company without all banding together to fight them in court. Your tireless dedication to helping landlords throughout the country to run responsible, indispensable rental businesses means that we feel much more secure than when we tried to go it alone. There is certainly strength in numbers. We need to change perceptions of landlords generally, and this is a great start.

Matthew Jones 5th July 2016

I would like to thank all of those who have been involved in the West Brom Action, a group which I am proud to have been a member of. I have no hesitation in pledging £600 and becoming a Founder Member. I am confident that we will now become a force to be reckoned with and achieve similar success against the Bank of Ireland.

Guto Davies 1st July 2016

Mark Alexander, as a member of the West Brom Action group I have no hesitation in contributing to this venture. Your determination to gather us together and drive this process forward was the sole reason behind our success in correcting what was a wholly unjust action by WB. I wish you all the success for the next battle. Guto Davies.

Denise Doms & Dale Geeves  24th June 2016

We would like to that the Marks and the team for their tireless work and outstanding win over the WBBS for us and to day we are more than happy to have pledges £600 to become Founder Members. ALL private landlords need to seriously consider if they can afford not to do the same.

We are delighted to support property 118 Action Group. As a long-term landlord we now feel we are being targeted in so many ways by mortgage lenders and now the government. We are hard working people providing a much needed service. As a member of the West Bromwich Building Society action group, we are now delighted at the result, which could only have been brought about by such a brilliant team, who wouldn't rest until justice prevailed. Well done to everyone involved.

Lawrence Tobias 9th June 2016

Heartfelt thanks to Mark, the legal team and all our supporters. After two and a half years of stress, I'm feeling more relieved than I imagined. The West Brom Building Society tricksters can no longer destroy my hard won business, despite their best efforts. We are a strong band of brothers and sisters. £600 seems a small price to pay to maintain a deterrent when NO other Landlord's association, group or institution would get involved (how weak they are). I'm in, foolish not to. THANKS EVERYBODY

Andrew Bell 9th June 2016

Independent Landlords are are being targeted by the Government, financial institutions and others who see us as a soft target they can benefit from. Our diversity and the individual capital risks delivers a variety of quality rental accommodation and, on average, modest returns to us. However our independence is seen as a weakness that the vultures can exploit. We have proved that by getting together, standing as one, we can fight back. When I was targeted and attacked by West Brom, I felt alone and defenceless. I never want to feel like that again. Becoming a lifetime member gives me a way of showing my appreciation for what the group has done, and helps to kickstart the group so it can protect me and my tenants in the future.

Jo Spreckley 9th June 2016

Looking forward to being a member of a positive, action-focused group. Sick of whinge fests elsewhere. My main issue is the unfair 2017 tax hike. Good on you Mark. Sorry it took 24 hours to join!

Leslie Leadbitter 8th June 2016

Fortune Favors the Brave, and there were some very brave people associate with this fight. If not for the leadership of Mark Alexander risking his reputation at least there was also Mark Smith gambling on a positive outcome, brave indeed, but don't forget those who risked money they were possibly not going to see again and quit possibly couldn't afford to lose also brave. Happily WE WON due to all these people and more.

twilson 8th June 2016

Mark Alexander has achieved the near impossible and deserves all the recognition he is now likely to receive .. and all the support he needs to keep up the amazing work he has achieved.. against all odds.. he was able to channel his frustration at the way the West Bromwich Mortgage Company Limited unilaterally changed the terms of his "tracker"mortgage terms into action.. he put other disgruntled borrowers in touch with each other through social media... he co -ordinated their actions and raised over £500,000.00 to fight for justice in court against the financial muscle of a major organisation...he failed at first instance but maintained enough momentum to fight a successful appeal and achieved a correct and proper result after many months of uncertainty and headache.. this is truly a situation where David has conquered Goliath and he needs all the credit he receives.. the headline will undoubtedly be.. "Crew Alexander hammer West Brom against all odds !" Well done Mark and all your team..... we all need to assist him in doing the same for other borrowers who do not have the independent financial muscle needed to fight big financial institutions when they step out of line and the government and the financial ombudsman lack the wherewithal to stop this from happening.

Delighted to support Property 118 Action Group as I've seen the Team in action on our successful group action again West Bromwich Building Society! Would like to help others in the position I found myself in - being treated unfairly by a big organisation.
