    Please God, he's not my letting agent.

      As others have said, don't beat yourself up about a small mistake.

      You're not the first to miss a deadline, and won't be the last.

      Businesses expect a few employee errors, and budget for them.

      Making a clean breast of it with your manager is the best course of action. (As long as you haven't pocketed the money yourself).
      Admit your error, take any admonishment there may be, and move on.
      They may even say something like, "When I've made that mistake in the past we sorted it by doing....".

      It's when you try to cover things up rather than admitting them that problems start.

        But the ex T. still owes me money and more claims are to be issued .

        Thanks to Thatcher's 1988 Housing Act a tenancy continues, monthly periodic, if tenant remains in occupation.

        Unless evicting tenants through court prior you / agent cannot (legally impossible to) prevent this.

        I have a large portfolio, I got tired of spending ours on the phone each week managing utilities between tenancies. I found a utility company that gave me a dedicated account team. I simply email the tenancy change and it gets sorted. However, there are a few challenges they are struggling to overcome,...

        I beg to differ. From experience it was slum landlords not sorting out the property by means of fixing penetrating damp along with missing roof tiles for years. Black mould covering a whole wall, damaged stairs that was just clipped back together under the stair case along with collapsing kitchen ceiling...

        We have a nice couple living in our one bed flat. It's an old building with thick, uninsulated walls. We've owned it for 10 years, and in that time had 1 tenant who managed to cover the place with mould due to how she was living in it, everyone else since has been absolutely fine.

        I visited...

      • Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
        by kankan
        Hello everyone,

        After signing the contract, but before moving in, the flat suffered some flood damage. 3 rooms needed repainting because of water stains and paint falling off.
        We were promised that this will be taken care of after moving in. We followed up several times, but the repairs...

        This is why I think the current letting agents are not very good! All I asked the letting agents was to make sure the tenancy ends on the last day as per the contract and not to extend it....
