      I have had tenants that spent the benefits which should have been paying my rent in nail salons and possibly for cosmetic dentistry. Anything except pay the rent. The council has a duty to ratepayers to ensure that benefits are used for the right reasons and could not know that anything paid in advance...

    • Tenant choosing not to pay rent!

      I have issued my tenant with notice to leave the house as they did not pay rent. She lost her job and couldn't afford to live there and I was sympathetic to them re this. I have since found out that they had enough money in the bank to pay the rent but have chosen not too! They still...

      You used to be able to get the old Housing Benefit paid directly to you as LL if the tenant did not pay for 8 weeks. I did this once. The tenant was absolutely furious that I had taken away her spending money.....

      The response makes perfect sense.

      You've been given a discretionary award to help pay your rent. which won't be refunded.
      The 12 months is conditional on you continuing to meet the requirements of the benefit, and your situation may change, so they won't pay future installments n...

      I would take the time to ensure they had a nice CCJ to prevent them gaining credit in the future, this is the minimum i would do.

      I 'implored' to the council/department who hands out awards and their response was basically: 'we wont be giving you a lump sum to pay your arrears because we don't know if you will find or get into work thereafter....' imagine that? the council is saying this...

      Thank you. I am not expecting housing to discuss the tenants situation with me however I am very tempted to let them know that they are claiming money for rent and not paying it. I shall see how it pans out...

    • Bond or No Bond?
      Has anyone considered not taking a bond from a tenant?

      With all the bond related paperwork landlords must get 100% correct, all the hoops that have got to be jumped through to prove to DPS (or other) that your claim is legitimate, the new five weeks rent equivalent rule, has anyone just...
