    Thank god he has gone, with kids in the address i would be very reluctant to allow any lone male to live with me, the kind of checks we all can do will not disclose any criminal/mental health issues which could pose a danger to the family..... think very carefully, our homes are meant to be a place of safety.

      Tough really. Tenant didn’t do it not his responsibility. Landlord has to either claim in his insurance because I just know the police won’t cough up as they will quote the said law that covers them as they don’t break down doors as a habit and without cause.

      On the other hand if...

      Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

      TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

      You have to be careful with these press release statistics though.

      That figure quotes a survey based on landlord's responses based on something that began to happen last October, when the £20 a week was removed from the UC payment.
      So it's quite a specific period.

      Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

      The T. deliberately let the police break the door. So he should pay for it in one way or another. He knew very well what the police were doing but did not care.

      What sort of charity? If 3 or more unrelated people are to live there it could be a House of Mulitple Occupation (HMO) which could require a licence or planning consent from the council.
      I have had bad experiences with these types of projects. Often the management is non existant and the tenants...

      Hi all,

      this was a shock to receive a letter from next door saying they where a charity and wanted access to our property to put new drainage system into our property and tell us they are opening the house up as tempary housing. is this something we can contest, i mean can this impacts...

      If it's no one's responsibility, the landlord should insure against the risk or just accept it.

      If, as I believe, it's the tenant's responsibility, the landlord should try and recover from the tenant.
      For clarity, because I think it's often a point of confusion, I don't think it's...

      It does beg the question of how the landlord can get justice in a case like this, particularly if it kept happening

      Let us know how significant you think it is after your first eviction.

      It certainly is and a big part of it is risk mitigation....
