  1. Hi all I'm looking for advice for people who are more learned and wiser than me. I have been leasing a property to my local council for the last few years. The council rented the property out to a tenant (the same tenant since early 2016) A built in oven/hob was included in the lease and has been listed in the inventory as being in good condition. I have also paid for the oven to be repaired once over the term of the lease. The tenant has now vacated the property and I met with someone from the local housing department today to discuss ending the lease. The built i
  2. Well, here's something I've not come across previously. Tenant has caused damage on Day one of the tenancy. Friday I had professional photos taken of a staged flat, to use in future adverts. Friday evening and Saturday morning staging removed and flat cleaned. 12pm Saturday the inventory was done and at 2pm I check the tenant in. 5pm tenants tells me they've damaged the floor. I have a look and it's half a 5 pence piece gouge out of the brand new (good quality) laminate floor in the middle of the room. Credit where credit is due she did own up right away and tell me. She t
  3. Hi guys, just a quick few questions on tax that come up less often. BTL insurance claim, if you claim on your insurance for damage to a BTL property, do you claim the insurance payout as income and claim any contractor repair costs as expenses or do you claim neither as its an insurance payout rather than earned income? If you withhold some or all of the deposit due to losses of time, work, rent, damage or whatever, either for actual contractor costs or for your own time and hard work to clean and repair etc, does this need to be claimed as income or not as the deposit
  4. Hi, some advice please. A tree in the back garden of a single let property has split and fallen and damaged the tenants contents inc kids trampoline, swingset, and paddling pool.

Issues to address: i have half a tree that needs to be cut down. half a tree that needs to be dispossed of. tenants personal belongings damaged. now im guessing im liable for the tree to be cut down and the removal of what has fallen. but the tenants contents are they covered by my buildings insurance?

  5. Hello, This is about insurance for a leasehold apartment. The freeholder has insurance to cover the building. I'm planning on getting insurance to cover the contents (it is unfurnished but I have provided washing machine, blinds) and to provide landlord's liability insurance. However I'm struggling to get cover for malicious damage by tenants. The combined buildings and contents cover I have for my other property, a freehold house, includes this. The freeholder's policy covers malicious damage by 3rd parties but not by residents. I'm concerned about a situation such as a tenant
  6. Our tenant has advised the managing agent that a cord within a sash window has snapped. An inventory was taken prior to the tenant moving in, which was signed by all parties to confirm the cord in question was unbroken. Who is liable for this damage and when should they pay? Is it down to the landlord to fix at a certain point; the tenant during their tenancy or out of their deposit following it; or an insurance issue (buildings, landlords' or contents)? It's not a clear cut matter, so thanks in advance for any personal experiences or advice.
