  1. I did not understand this aspect of your comment: 'purely because I then trust them' My landlord takes three lodgers and the total income exceeds £7500
  2. It makes me wonder what the solicitor is doing. The purchase is agreed, then three months delay
  3. Is this measured from the time a property is identified for purchase
  4. I have never purchased property before. My estimate was about three months after finding the property. This estimate is around the time-frame you have quoted. I like your idea of letting the solicitor decide on my date of notice. I suppose the best time to involve a solicitor is after finding the property of interest. Nothing to discuss prior to location. Best wishes Ps. 'giving your notice around the time you have completed searches and your solicitor has recieved your mortgage offer' I assume you mean
  5. I am renting at the moment while looking for a suitable flat to buy (failing that i will have to rent). My question is: Once I have found the flat to buy how long will the whole process take to complete the transaction (from start to finish). This will help me to plan and consider when to hand in my notice. Thanks
  6. I asked for a receipt for the payment and got one. Hence I have proof of payment. I think the odd system in this case of charging a deposit but not returning it and offering the final month (notice period)) free is probably to ensure that lodgers stay two months, which was the minimum period in the advert.
  7. Recently, I visited a room available for rent and part of a house share. The room was advertised as furnished,, but not to my satisfaction. I had seen the room some months previously, but there were no changes. I paid a deposit to secure the room in case I was unable to find anything better. I did fine a better alternative. The landlord originally offered to return the deposit, but because I delayed in requesting it he said that he will deduct £100 for his and the tenants wasted time, and non-fulfilment of the contract; although he sent me a contract, I did

  9. I will soon be moving into a room in someone else's house. I expect I will be classified as a lodger. The landlord wants to be paid a deposit and rent in cash. He also operates an odd system where the deposit is kept, but the final month is rent free - once notice is given. Without causing offence how can I safeguard my payments, in other words, prove that I have paid rent. The landlord likes to trust tenants and expects trust in return.
  10. I contacted the company that supplied both the gas and electricity (SSE) and they said that they would forward a final bill to my new address. They seem to be unable to change the name on the documents (Exors of mother's name). I have received the bills at my new address under the name Exors of mother's name, but there is no mention of final bill. Evidently, after this bill posted to my new address all future bills will be sent to the old address. It all sounds rather odd, I hope that having supplied the meter readings before I left for the last time that I
  11. This is a good idea. Unfortunately, my phone is so old, and is only used for emergencies, that it does not take date stamped photos. I will be giving a couple of days notice, I need to move fairly quickly. Best wishes.
  12. I can't take water meter readings, but I assume that a telephone call will be sufficient.
  13. Thank you for responding. I can take meter readings. Unfortunately, I can only contact the executor via a solicitor, and I don't know anyone locally. I will ask for a final bill to be sent to my new address. Suppose the executor, or house clearers, cleaners, tradesmen ( to effect any repairs), etc come to the house after I have left and start using the utilities. Will I be charged? I assume that someone has to pay. Best wishes.
  14. I am living alone in a probate house, and will soon be leaving. I want to ensure that the gas, electricity and water bills will no longer be charged to my accoun after I leave. The house may be visited after my leaving by the executor, house clearers, and possibly other people. How can I ensure that the utility bills will not be charged to me after I leave. Is there a correct t procedure for closing things down, I have never done this before Thanks
