Landlord selling and wants tenant to stay
joa posted a topic in Tenant AdviceHi All, I am new to this site and not even sure if this is the right forum but I could do with some help and advice if anyone wouldn't mind? My Mum was given notice on her flat back in October and her tenancy is due to end at the end of this week (28th November). The landlord is selling. However the new buyers of the flat would like my Mum to stay on as a tenant. Of course my Mum would like to stay in the property as she has been there for years but the sale of the flat has not gone through yet and the letting agent have not put anything in writing about her staying in the flat and she hasn't had a new tenancy. She has spoken to the letting agents on several occasions who have said everything is still progressing and even if the sale fell through the landlord has said he wouldn't chuck her out. My worry is that as of this weekend she has no legal tenancy so I am assuming her insurance is invalid as well? She has emailed the letting agency today and asked them to put something in writing to her but they keep phoning her telling her it;'s going to be ok? My mum is 65 and doesn't need this stress and is looking to me for advice. I have searched the web but can't seem to get to the right place for info. Any advice on what she could do or where I can go to for advice would be great!
Cut losses and move on advice needed
Joe forrester posted a topic in Tenant AdviceHi, This maybe a bit long winded but would really appreciate a few of peoples insights and advice on the issue am having with my property at the moment. i have a small two up two down property on the wirral in birkenhead, had it roughly two year now, first year i accepted guarenteed rent for first 12 months, and now the guarnteed is over is where my problems are. Ive had two tennants (housing benefit) first tennant left property in a state and now the tennant who has just left has left it even worse, filled my backyard up with household waste to just below the window (letting agency said they would get her a bin and never did) but still a bit excessive and also smashed my window inside for good measure, oh and obviously not been paying rent since shes been there. letting agency who ive used for both tennants hasnt collected a deposit, nightmare to get hold of at time and because of the latest tenant not paying her rent even when i was still on the guarenteed at the time didnt send me a contract through to go onto the normal rental contract of them taking 10% every month. This has been my first investment property but thinking with all the trouble ive had with it is to just cut my losses sell it and recoup my money maybe a bit more and start again. Any views would be appreciated and thanks for reading it all if you got down that far.
