    New Tenants

    Hi, I am new to the forum! Have had a little 'look' around and it seems to be very detailed.

    I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers. I have been renting out one of my properties for about 7 years hassle free. I have now signed up with an agency (rent collection only) and my new tenants seem to be hassling me for EVERYTHING on a daily basis.

    They moan pretty much daily about something that is not clean enough or broken. I am doing my best to sort things out but wondered what are my rights as I think this new tenant will continue on this vein. Has anyone else had this kind of 'nuisance tenant' and if so what did they do.

    Many thanks and really would appreciate your help

    hiya, unfortunately when a LA lets a property to a tenant, one cannot tell what type of tenant they are. We have tenants who gladly fix little things like loose taps, re-do sealant etc and then inform us that they have done this on our visit. Other tenants constantly call us at least once a week with problems. C'est la vie im afraid!

      Actually Poppy under S.11 of the LTA 1985 tenants are obliged to deal with incidental repairs, so said Lord Denning.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        If I had just taken up a tenancy I would at least draw to the attention of the agent and probably landlord anything that was broken or not clean when I moved in as I wouldn't want to be held responsible for it being in a pristine state at the end of the tenancy.

            Thanks for all your comments. I think maybe it's 'teething problems' I have made arrangements to fix everything he has said is broken, but it all seems a coincidence. I think he just wants everything new, surely he should have looked at the property before signing the contract!!

            Even the LA agrees with us, guess you just have to set boundries as this guy would have me supplying his toliet paper!

            Thanks again

              Just so long as it's just supplying it...
