    Subtenant eviction notice

    18 months ago, with our landlord's agreement, we sold a shipping container to a friend for her to convert for her business use on our site. As we were friends we didn't have a formal written agreement, just a verbal one for one third of the rent. 18 months on we have had one single rent payment this month. There are other shared costs, agreed verbally, that she has yet to pay for; and items relating to branding, signage etc that I paid for which has just been reimbursed although as she hasn't stated what the money was for we have said it was for these expenses.

    I emailed her with a breakdown of all costs and so far we have received no payment t although we have had a meeting. She has made no acknowledgment that she has failed to lay her rent or costs. I'm seeing a solicitor on Wednesday but to save my sanity before then I wondered if we had the right to give her notice to quit and remove her container as the rent is so far 18 months in arrears. Even if she pays it do we still have the right to ask her as we feel this is unreasonable behaviour and do not want her on our business site.

    Did you try just switching online via comparison site and MPAN number ?
    I have half a dozen communal energy accounts all on standard residential tariff and I fail to see how they could classify it as commercial unless you volunteered that information.

    I'm currently facing an issue, I've been with a business electricity provider for the last 8 years, my usage is very low, less than £140-£160 a year or 500-600KW pa, as it's only powering the communal areas (security lights and hallway) in a small block of flats. The energy provider has now said they...

    I'm trying to negotiate a rent plan for my shop, but my landlords agent has asked for my accounts for the previous 2 years. I've been at the property for over 20 years, no problems paying rents etc. This new landlord took over 3 years ago, again no problems paying rents etc. Until the virus hit....

    The landlord owns the property, not the tenant's business. The landlord can ask but is not entitled to see your accounts. By the same toke, you are not entitled to a rent plan. As only the landlord can agree a variation to the rent payment arrangements, I'd have thought whether from your point of view...

    Tried them, but they farm it off to brokers, I've now managed to fix it for 3 years, at what seems extortionate rates from my previous supplier and comparing with my own residential tariff, now will be paying over £280 per year. At least it is now done and don't need to worry about it for a while....

    They may need to review and update there leaseholders information that they hold for insurance, mortgage or general due diligence reasons. The reason why they would see your previous years is too see if you were making a loss each year or in profit. They can not see into the future so all checks are...

    We have a commercial tenant who stopped paying the rent in February. He says since his business is not earning a profit due to lockdown, he does not have to pay the rent, can't pay the rent and won't pay the rent. He says he is legally entitled to do this because the government have banned landlords...
