    With a rent that high you need to instruct a specialist landlord and tenant surveyor.

      If you have a tenant and he is paying in the current climate I would be wary of enthusiastically chasing an upward rent review as many are looking for rent reductions .Obviously its best in the hands of a specialist who may quietly asses a fair rent without stirring the tenant up unnecessarily .

        You will first need a rental valuation having regard to the rent review clause in the lease. If it suggests an uplift then you may choose to start the rent review process. A local chartered surveyor can help you with this.

          I rent 2 properties next to each other from the same landlord.

          There has been much discussion and now I've been served with 2 opposed s25 notices one for each property.

          Both properties are used in connection with...

        • Planning permission
          We have recently been contacted to say that a unit does not have planning for workshop use but for office only. We bought the unit(s) and have owned for a number of years and this unit was a workshop then (and not offices). What is the planning rule on this type of thing? All the units that surround...

          The limit is 4 years for unauthorised building work, unless it also violates an existing planning condition, in which case it is 10 years.

          It is 10 years for unauthorised change of use.

          If I forfeit by peaceable entry, can I still apply for a repossession order? To secure having repossession.

        • Mixed use, Commercial law help needed!
          Advice needed, please.

          We recently took our l/l to court for non-protection of deposit. To cut a long story short, the court dismissed the case on the grounds that the tenancy was of mixed use class due to use also renting a shop on the side of the house (in the extension) therefore commercial...

          Thank you for the replies and sorry it's a bit vague. We rent a house and it has an extension on the side of the original house and within the extension is a shop that we also rent. When we first moved here I personally...
