    Landlord needed for magazine article

    Afternoon all,
    Move or Improve magazine is a national consumer title for people who invest in and/or improve property. We're running a feature in our next issue roughly titled 'My Double Life as a Property Tycoon' - Landlords/ladies with day jobs. It will profile several different people who juggle letting property with a completely different day job.

    It will involve a quick interview (either 15-20 mins on the phone or simply answering questions via email) and a few hours of your time at some point in the next fortnight for myself and a photographer to come along and photograph you 'at work as a landlord/lady' whether that be in a home office, on site at one of the houses - basically however you spend the majority of your time landlording.

    We'd also like to use snapshots of the exterior of the property/ies you rent out and also a photo of you at your 9-5 job which we would need you to provide.

    We're particularly looking for someone who has a young family or someone who has not long bought their second home and is letting out their first.
    Is there anyone out there who fancies five minutes of fame? Please get in touch asap and we'll go from there.

    Try and change suppliers.
    The outgoing supplier will do everything that they can to prevent this (the automated routes won't work), but they'll have to do it eventually.

  • Help - evicted tenant leaves a nasty surprise behind

    My tenant was evicted back in April of this year after a lengthy period.
    Besides this trauma, the problems continue.

    My new agent has emptied the letterbox and found a number of concerning items. One is the matter of a court summons for unpaid council tax. I have since taken over...

    It sounds like it. But as above ask for a breakdown of fees first and take it from there.

    There is a Solicitors Regulation Authority. It has a Code of Conduct....

    Assuming that you are a tenant (there's a good checker on the Shelter website - which might be useful to point your landlord at)..

    There are a number of ways a tenancy can be brought to an end, but for a landlord to end the tenancy, there are only two options (other than by agreement with...

    We had a very high solicitors charge but my partner noticed in their terms & conditions that they had put that if their charges were going to go over £5000 they would contact us first, which they had not done, so the bill was reduced to £5000 plus Vat at £1000.
    And I believe that there...

    Appreciate the clarification, I did do a lot of digging around after you first mentioned exclusive occupation into the laws regarding this so I definitely understand your point there now. And as far as I can tell from that, my being here should constitute the requirements of a (sub)tenancy.
