    Tenant left voluntarily owing rent

    (approx. £4,500, rent £500pcm).
    LA agreed to £60 pcm, without ref to LL.
    At that rate it will take T over 6 years to repay the debt.
    + £1200 for billable T damage.
    Is there any way LL can increase the monthly repayment?

    I'd accept that IIWY. Tenant will presumably have rent to find on another place, so won't have massive amounts to repay you every month.


      The agent's action bind the landlord I would think. Whether you have cause for an action against the agent if the agreement wasn't a power you have given them, and whether any such action is advisable is a different question.

      • Grade 2 listed - requirement for an EPC
        I have a potential client who wants me to rent his Grade 2 listed barn conversion. It's a lovely property and he currently has it on the market for sale with another agent.

        They currently have an EPC for it (even though I don't think they needed one) and it's score is F.

        I wonder how many perfectly good buildings (and cars, and fridges, and light fittings) have been scrapped or destroyed as a result of these environmental evangelists. I suspect they are responsible for a great deal of environmental destruction (both planetary destruction and destruction of our infrastructure)....

      • HMO trouble!
        Hi everyone,

        I've been renting a property out to a family and one of their friends for the last 2 years. The council have just told me that I should have applied for an HMO licence for the property as it now fits under new HMO rules. The problem is, that I remortgaged the property as a...

        a) Inform the mortgage company "I have been inadvertently fallen within a potential category of HMO through no wish of my own. My understanding is that it remains a single-let tenancy as there is only one AST and one single joint tenant. I am taking steps to evict the tenants as soon as possible....

        Single-let doesn't necessarily mean a single family, and HMO doesn't necessarily mean multiple tenancies. It's perfectly possible to be both single-let and HMO.

        What's the definition of single-let in your mortgage? If it just mean a single tenancy, is that what you have? If not, then you...

        Of course but the challenge is not that the safety is is not being observed because for example consider the gas equipment to be faulty in the property blows up house burnt down everybody loses so so for me I would like to think that this is common sense.

        requesting here appears to be and...

        I have to respond to this.

        Whether you are pro-landlord or pro-tenant, the safety of the occupiers are a hell of a lot more important than the ability of a landlord to evict a tenant without grounds....

        The general rules for HMOs in England and Wales are described at https://www.gov.uk/house-in-multiple-occupation-licence:

        [/LIST]So assuming that the friend of the family counts as a separate household, if there’s five or more people in the property, you probably need a licence. If there’s...
