  1. Hi I've lived in this flat since January and have never even met the landlord let alone live with him though he is claiming I'm a lodger so he can evict me with shorter notice dodging the covid 19 legislation. What can I do. The contract is called a lodgers agreement but he doesn't love in the building I live in Bristol he lives in London. Help

  3. Asking for a friend (honestly )... Said friend has been self-managing with very little background knowledge of how to do it. They have a tenant who is some four months in arrears and they want to get rid of them if possible. Is there a professional advisor out there who can help with them with what they need to do? I'm pretty sure they have registered the deposit but they may not have served all the statutory information required. I just don't know. They need an advisor who can find out what they have and haven't done, work out what the situation is and a
  4. Advice needed! I’m an experienced landlord with a few buy to lets and up until now I’ve had really good long term tenants. I’ve got 2 tenants that are 4 months into a 12 month agreement and currently going through a bad break up. They’re both telling us different stories about them wiping each other’s bank accounts so can’t afford to pay the rent. She’s saying he’s being investigated by the police and social services so cannot be contacted by him, nor reply to group emails. We don’t know what to believe but none is our concern. They’re over 2 weeks late with the rent and it doesn’t look like i
  5. We bought a property at auction recently, and inherited a terrible tenant (LHA). He was in arrears before completion and still is (and has not started paying yet). He also appears to be smoking some illegal substances at the property. The property is a 1b flat in a converted house in Liverpool, and selective licensing applies. To apply for a licence, you need to provide a gas safety certificate - but the tenant is refusing access (pretending not to be home) so the gas engineer cannot enter to complete the gas safety check. Rent is £90 pw (around £390 pcm). His 6m original
  6. Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and am seeking some advice from others who have been unfortunate enough to go through a similar experience as the one that I am having to deal with now. To provide a bit of background: I help my parents manage their property, which was let on a new AST to a family with 2 children starting end of Dec 2016. The tenants were current with rent the first 3 months, then several weeks late with rent the following 2 months and, as at today, owe my parents 5 months' rent. The tenants have lied about their financial affairs throughout, been evasive and non-
  7. Hi all, I just wanted to share this article by Lettings Barrister Michael Grant highlighting a gap in the Housing Act that doesn't allow for section 8 evictions if you issue a tenancy to collect the rent on a four weekly basis - in line with Housing Benefit payments. http://lettingsbarrister.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Gap-in-Housing-Act.pdf
  8. Hi, Can a freeholder force a leaseholder to leave the property for disturbance/threatening behaviour. I am a freeholder of a property that is leased to another person who is causing disturbance in the building and threatening other residents. What rights do I have as I would like this person removed from the property. Any advice greatly received. Thanks Simeon
  9. Hello there, Wanted some advice on my particular predicament. The situation is as follows: I currently have a 3 bed flat in Hackney which is let out to a housing association bringing in £1300 per month. The tenant currently residing in the property is a single mother with 6 children who has been in the property for almost 2 years. I realise that I could be getting a lot more by converting the flat into a 4 bed HMO. Similar flats in the same block are fetching £650 per room yielding a healthy £2600 gross monthly rent. I gave notice to the housing association 4 months ago informing
  10. Hey everyone, looking for some advice Myself and my mum own two properties which are managed by a property management company. We've had them for nearly 5 years, and they've always been managed because we live in the South and the properties are in the North. Due to a recent change in circumstances, we're looking to sell both as my mum is currently struggling to pay her own mortgage and she's looking the recoup the investment made 5 years ago to pay off the remaining mortgage on her own home. Here's the issue... One of the properties has tennants in it and paying, so we're not
  11. I watched Britains Benefit Tenants on channel 4 on Monday night (i dont know if this was a repeat). I took interest in the property agent who had served an eviction notice on older couple staying in property she managed. The couple had not left despite the notice and the agent went to visit them. She spoke to the camera before going to visit the tenants and said the approach she was going to take was not to get the baliffs in but to try and take the compassionate approach as wanted to avoid the tenants trashing the place before the baliffs arrived. she then proceeded over the next
