    Tort Notice

    Hello all,

    Following on from my previous thread, I am now looking to produce a Tort Notice - templates are scarce that I can find, cannot find any on here or on the RLA

    I am looking to issue a Notice to Impose Obligation to Collect Goods, and from reading up on it I am an involuntary bailee therefore I only have to comply with what is reasonable before disposing of the goods

    It often mentions on sites that you should also send a Notice of Intention to Sell Goods at the same time as the above, does this always need to be the case? I don't consider the items to have any real second hand value or that it is worth the effort to try and sell. They are only really valuable to my tenants as they will have to buy new if they are disposed of

    I'm intending to give 2 weeks notice, there has already been discussions about the goods by email with the ex tenant.

    Does anyone have a particular template they like to use? I notice I am required to add an inventory also of the items that have been left which is fine

    All the items have been removed from the property that the tenant surrendered, and are now in storage

    Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)? England

    Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only? Sole Tenant

    Q3 – What date did current TA start dd/mm/yy? 28/09/18

    Q4 – How long was initial fixed term (6/12/24 months / other)? 6

    Q5 – Does the TA state that rent is due weekly? / 4-weekly? / per calendar month (if so, on what same date each month)? Monthly (27th)

    Q6 – Did the TA require a tenant damage deposit to be paid? If so, on what date was this paid (dd/mm/yy)? Yes (28/09/18)

    Q7 – If your query relates to a notice for repossession from the landlord (a Section 8 or Section 21 notice) or a tenants's notice to quit to the landlord, please provide the exact date the notice was sent/received (dd/mm/yy). N/A

    Q8 – Does the landlord live in the same property as the tenant? No

    A property was let and managed by an estate agents. The tenants complained of some damp near windows in May 2020. But with the lockdown etc nothing was easy. The tenants have now gone to solicitors who have had a report done and the inspector has found some mould and some defects.

    The tenancy agreement hasn’t been signed by the prospective tenant and we haven’t signed it either....

    Hi, hope someone can help. If a tenancy has been offered and a draft tenancy issued but nothing has signed, can the landlord u-turn and change his mind (if he has found out that the prospective tenant has not been truthful)?

    Sure, technically you can withdraw the offer before the prospective tenant signs the contract, but as once stated by I think Lawcruncher on another thread, there's nothing you can do to stop the tenant from claiming they had already signed the contract by the time you inform them you are withdrawing...

    The problem for OP is that the Act says:

    OP did provide false or misleading information to the letting agent by their own admission.

    So it comes down to whether (b) applies. There's no temporal restrictions on when the information was provided or when the landlord...

    Hello all,

    I was in the final stages of closing on a rental property when i was informed that after further inspection of my financial situation, the landlord had rejected the offer.

    To secure the viewing, I overstated my income. I didn't think much of it at the time (it's...

    With the Tenant Fees Act, I think it doesn't really matter what either parties think the "holding deposit" is for. There's only so much the landlord or their agent can do with such a payment. They can only take one holding deposit, and they are required to return the holding deposit unless...

    "In this Act “holding deposit” means money which is paid by or on behalf of a tenant to a landlord or letting agent before the grant of a tenancy with the intention that it should be dealt with by the landlord or letting agent in accordance with Schedule...
