Unclear tenancy agreement regarding periodic tenancy

    Bit of a follow up. LL moaning because we haven't signed the new inventory (she has replaced the carpet in one of the rooms due to the previous tenants not reporting a moth infestation and the carpet getting damaged) We aren't renewing the AST and will be leaving next month so will sign one when we check out. So I don't see the point?

    Would I be wrong not to sign it? I don't see the point. Can she demand it?


      She can demand it, but there is nothing (realistic) that anyone can do to make you.

      On the other hand, it's not really an issue to sign it is it?
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


        No issue in signing it. It is just that I am abroad so can't sign it yet and she had a dramatic reaction to this.

        Offered to sign and send it when I return home.

        Her reaction just surprised me so was worried had missed something of legal importance.


          What does she expect you to do, buy a very long pen?

            I am not experienced enough to offer the advice i know you need, but is suspect (as you have seen) that the police will be of no use in this instance, they will still see it as a civil dispute right up and until the whole interior is destroyed. I am so sorry this is happening to you and i trust a member...

            Wondered if anyone has thoughts on use of s21 (while we still can!) when a tenant has been great at paying rent but is just very demanding - significantly more work than the other four properties combined. The main issue is mould on the walls - it’s an old building recently refitted to modern insulation...

            Tell the tenant the property is not suitable for their lifestyle and invite them to leave, s21 if they dont.

            Thanks all. I suspect leaving the whisper quiet extractor fan on will fix the problem. Hard to tell because he hasn't left it on. And if he turns that off he'll turn off a PIV system too.

            MdeB - yes Jpkeates is right. Warmer air can hold more moisture so there's more water to condense...

            The moisture that's in the air has to go somewhere, if the updated insulation has closed off where it used to escape, it'll hang around until it finds a cooler surface to condense on.

            If a damp expert declined to do anything about it, that suggests that whatever they could do, they knew...

          • Landlord trying to keep deposit
            My former landlord and letting agent are trying to withheld my deposit. (England 12month AST).
            They are trying to claim I caused damage to the carpets and walls but this damage actually belongs to the second flat in the same building and was caused by the previous tenant of that flat who left...

            While it's common to give the Prescribed Information to the tenant with the Tenancy Agreement it can backfire if the deposit isn't actually protected at that point, because the Prescribed Information is technically not correct.

            It will be almost impossible to take legal action from outside...

            Thank you for all your help.

            The prescribed information was signed by myself and the letting agent at the same time the tenancy agreement was signed and the keys were handed over. I wasn’t actually given a chance to read the prescribed information before I signed it. The prescribed information...

            Did the refit include looking at roof ,chimney flashings and drainpipes? Is it worse after a bout of bad weather?...
