    Poor property management

    I recently let go property managers because of several lapses and poor service to tenants etc .
    What do I do with tenants until their lease expires?

    Get them to pay the rent direct to you?

      they asked for a rent reduction and threatened to call the council about lapses that were purely the responsibility of the management company . I reminded them that was why I fired the company, now they want to stay but I am not sure ??

        Oh well if everything is now fixed, I might issue a s21 as a warning.

        I guess you could afford a small reduction if you are now not paying management charges. However, you might want to check your contract with the agent to see if you still owe them yearly commission.

          s21 how is that served as just a warning ? Yes I would be willing to consider a reduction and give them early termination with no penalty, we want to get the property up to standards again . Letting company was fired for several lapses and causes , the contract does not specifically state fees after termination . Thanks

            Sincerely hope you got copies of ALL paperwork (tenancy, references, inventory, photos, deposit protection, proof of service of PI etc etc etc) first. If not agents are unlikely to be helpful now.

            (Unless tenancy names landlord as agent - does it) the contract is between you & tenants: Carry on as normal, no reason for a rent reduction. In your shoes I would send a calm polite letter with proof you are owner (eg copy of land registry deeds) to tenants, apologise for previous bad management & ask for a meeting to chat about any issues, repairs etc, giving your contact details (address, email, 'phone, bank details etc..).

            When meeting for 1st time in these circumstances I'd take a bottle of wine & some flowers, smile, be friendly & let them do most of the talking and then move on from there.

            It may be agents have told them things which are not 100% true....
            I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

              You don't follow it with a possession order?

                Ram, you make my job twice as hard as it needs to be by quoting the spammers web address, and you almost got automatically banned.

                Hello

                I have just started a letting agency and I want to get landlords contacting me. I did place an advertisment in my local paper but that did not generate any leads at all.

                Can you please send me suggestions of the best ways to get landlords contacting me to manage there...

                We have all done it in the past - added posts to old threads.

                goodfellow + easytenant have not been on here for 9 years.

                However, I see you are one of the two Directors of {Mod - removed}

                Nice try !

                Hi,

                I had been renting a property from an estate agent. The contract was a 6 month term, and after the 6 months we decided to move out.

                The estate agent created a list that needed doing based on the original inventory and asked us to paint one wall back to the original colour...

                Is the LL living outside of the UK? (Or are you using 'flew' simply to mean a quick visit).

                If he is abroad then he's going to have problems trying to take you to court in the UK....

                But staying in a place for 6 months and thinking that you can paint a wall, presumably without permission, is a damn cheek. Presumably you reinstated it to its exact pre-damaged status (same number of layers of paint on the wall, and the exact color to within 1%). This is BAD tenant behaviour - and...

                Even with a deposit still held, the tenant can just say "see you in court". However, if they do that, it is more likely that they will end up having to pay the legal costs.

                If the landlord thinks you are liable for a loss that they have incurred they can try and recover the funds from you.
                To do that, they'll have to show that you caused them a loss, that it was beyond fair wear and tear and that they have kept the loss claimed to a minimum.

                To enforce...

                Thanks for your response.

                But for how long can that go on, in our eyes the landlord requested we give £100 of our deposit to cover whatever they wanted and to bring the property back up to scratch and now they are in our eyes nit picking. Surely the end of the tenancy and return of the...
