Is this a risk or an opportunity? PLUS: Can I legally increase the rent?

Welcome back to another episode of Ask Rob & Rob! 

The first question this week is from Jess in Bristol.  

Jess has seen a reduced 2-bed apartment that needs a cash buyer due to cladding issues. The remedial work on the cladding has been done, but the vendor and management agent are waiting for the certificate to come through.  

Should Jess proceed with the purchase knowing the work has been done but doesn’t yet have an EWS1 certificate to prove it? 

Listen as Rob B shares his thoughts based on his experience – and a few words of warning for Jess.  

Next up is a question from Firoz.  

Firoz has had tenants living in his property for six years, however, they’ve refused to increase their rent. As Firoz protected the deposit late, he’s struggling to remove his tenants and is after some advice.  

Rob D takes the lead on this one, giving listeners an overview of the importance of protecting deposits and some useful information that may well help Firoz out with his issue.
