    Tenants entry date

    Hi I am new to the forum, I have only 1BTL property and is the first time I find tenants by myself (LA was ripping me off)
    I found what looked the ideal candidate, professionals long term contract and early entry date. I turned down others and agreed to let. Then they told me that they still need to give notice and can come early if really I am after the money. ­čśĘ But during the application they told me they could come right now (so I assumed they had an exit date agreed)

    what to do? Push to start early, feeling greedy and not very pleasant? Sign the contract for entry in 2-4 weeks? Say no and just contact other applicants?

    grateful for any advice

    If only one co-owner one can sign the tenancy agreement does this mean that this implies that the other agree to it. And what happens if only one co-owner signs a tenancy agreement and the other does not agree does it make the tenancy agreement invalid and what happens to the tenants who has already...

    The landlord of a lease is whoever is named as the landlord on the tenancy agreement if there is one, if there isn't it depends on to whom rent is paid. The landlord doesn't have to own the property they are letting, so who owns the property doesn't affect who is the landlord.

    If one co-owner...

    So, for the last year and a half we've had a young woman as a model tenant. She's improved the house no end and keeps it immaculate and only rarely raises very minimal and perfectly acceptable maintenance requests. Very pleasant lady all round.

    The other day, our agent told us that she'd...

    Keep everything IIWY.

    HMRC can go back as long as they like if they suspect criminality. How will you prove you aren't a criminal if you don't have the papers?

    Don't think you "have to give permission".

    Consider tenant who doesn't pay rent one month. You don't have to give permission for this (or not..), they remain liable to eviction under s8g10. Or one who fails to pay rent 3 months in a row then starts again, but still 3 months...

    In reality, I can't see a s8 notice on that basis alone resulting in repossession, on the basis that a) it's disproportionate to be made homeless for a breach of that nature and b) that courts don't want to make people homeless if they can avoid it.

    The term should probably be "which...

  • DPS Custodial Scheme & Joint Landlords
    Have I missed something, or is it impossible for joint landlords to be recorded in the DPS Custodial Scheme in the way that joint tenants are separately identified? Does anyone think that a problem could arise over deposit protection issues where the record shows the identity of only one of two joint...
