  • when do I serve a s21

    I have an AST that began 1st July '07, please advise on dates of when I should serve a s21 notice to tenants, also should this be in letter format?
    I have found a buyer for my property can i sell the property with the tenancy in hand and tell the tenants the landlord would like to raise the rent as the new landlord would like more rent, where do I stand? Also what is the best way to serve the s21 as I was told recorded delivery is the worst as the tenant can refuse to sign for it? Should I use a solicitor to serve the s21.

    Should I mention in a letter that I have sold the property?

    This question is asked so frequently I would suggest you just look at some of the posts on the forum.
    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.

    • Landlord asks that T to pay deposit protection charge each time we renew AST
      JP23
      Why must we continuously renew our deposit with the scheme each time we re-sign our AST i.e. every 12 months?

      Why can the deposit not remain protected throughout the duration of the overall tenant occupation?

      Is our landlord acting in questionable faith by asking us to pay...

      Hello
      i am a landlord and have insurance based deposit protection (I hold the deposit in segregated client account and register it with My Deposits) every time a new contract is drawn up we have to pay £48. If a tenancy is renewed, we pay £48. If someone moves out of one of our multiple tenant...

    • Excessive estate agent fees
      Cml241
      I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

      If you have no ongoing contract with the agent and it was "find" only, they have no right to force you into a new AST.

      Depending on the terms of your contract there's nothing to prevent you, if your feeling confident, in renewing the contract yourself and taking over.

      Fees for 'renewing' will not be in the tenancy agreement because they are not fees of the tenancy and are freely negiotiated.

      The landlord should simply charge an admin fee to renew and set it to include all his costs...

    • Structuring a deal - Purchase Option/Overage Agreement?

      Hello,

      There is a derelict property with good potential in my area. The owner tried to sell it in a local auction few years back and did not get what he wanted (actually did but got greedy). Now he can even sell it for cheaper than what he was getting in the auction. Property has good potential...

      There is no charge and it doesn't need reprotecting if it's in a custodial scheme. If it's in an insurance based scheme then landlord is holding it and can be claiming interest on it, it's therefore very cheeky but not illegal to pass the cost onto you.

      Ask him if he can use a custodial...

      Yes, but if we're talking renewal, then it'll inevitably be in it.

      Is it insured or custodial. Insured, meh. Custodial, wholly unreasonable....
