    I have explained our options to him and has said that he isn’t willing to go to a solicitor, (Very old school-stuck in his ways). This will leave me with less protection, but that’s the way it is unfortunately, do our best bet is now an assured tenancy. Where can one be purchased please?
    You could still go to a Solicitor yourself and seek independent advice.

    I am an Assured Tenant and in the situation where it is no longer the original Landlord. My current Landlord’s aim seems to be to try every which way to try and get rid of me and I have had his Solicitor trying to find creative ways and loopholes to achieve it. Even if he doesn't find a loophole I still have to keep engaging in legal games with him and have all the stress and hassle and feeling under threat. So if you go the assured tenancy route make sure you get the best advice possible from someone very knowledgeable in this area of law and be especially careful of how the rent increase clause is drafted.

    • What happens to the deposit when a landlord dies?
      Hi everyone, I’m wondering if you could help me, as I’m very unsure of where I stand legally in respect of a housing situation I exited recently.

      I was a Monday to Friday lodger until a few months ago, when I needed to vacate the room and move to a different property. I signed a contract...

      Whatever the practical obstacles, whoever is responsible for the estate needs to sort it out.
      If the lodger sues the estate for the deposit, a court would award costs against them as well as ordering the return of the money.

      Unless the lodger at least makes asserts their claim, the...

      Pay it today "under protest" to avoid further fees, then slowly sort the mess out.

    • Reply to Question about damage
      A landlord is entitled to compensation for any loss in value of their asset(s) beyond fair wear and tear that occurred during the lease.

      The formula that they should use, and a court (and the protecting company ADR process) will use is:
      (Cost of the original item and any installation/fitting...

    • Reply to Question about damage
      What specifically are we talking about in terms of damage? As far as I'm aware, you can't deduct from deposit for fair wear and tear; if the tenant has looked after it as well as reasonably possible and been there a few years and it's slightly worn or light sofa indentation I wouldn't...
