    No defence to Part 8 claim

    I started part 8 claim for breach of deposit protection law and 14 days have passed and LL not filed any defence. Court have asked me to confirm that I also not received any response from LL which I am going to do next week.

    I sorted out remedies to return my deposit and 3 times penalty in my claim. What would happen now? do I get full remedies claimed or not and do I have to go to hearing or I would get a judgement without hearing?

    Do all joint tenants have to attend hearing or one can attend for all ? can one tenant authorise other if he confirms in writing and would court accept that?

    There will still have to be a hearing. Default judgment may not be obtained for a claim under the Part 8 procedure. In theory, if the defendant failed to file an acknowledgment of service, they "may attend the hearing of the claim but may not take part in the hearing unless the court gives permission". Don't be surprised if they do turn up at the hearing and the judge does give permission for them to take part though.

  • Company lets
    My company are bringing in some Indian nationals for a few months training.

    Secretary went and asked local agents and was fobbed off with nonsense like, "has to be an AST and the law says min 1 yr", I guess the agents don't need the complication.

    On the other hand, my brother has let (via agent) his property to a company (a well known technological giant) for the past few years with no problems whatsoever! He's found the tenants (foreign nationals) much better than former ones. Rent is always paid on time....

  • Damage not recorded in inventory

    We recently went in to do some (legitimate, reasonable) repairs on our let property and saw that the tenant has melted some of the UPVC window sill which is directly above the electric hob. It's an area of about one inch wide and six inches long and the burn is partly superficial but...

    Having read your description and seen the picture I would assign that to the landlord if I were the clerk, much as I do heat warped doors around built in cookers.

    As nukecad said, you could trim it back flush to the wall and line the width of the hob with tiles, stainless steel etc. But...

  • Suicide of tenant
    I rented out my house while working in Europe. One of my tenants commited suicide about three weeks ago and after a several days or more the other two tenants were worried and got the police to break down the door of his room and find his body. A tragedy that has obviously upset me enormously but without...

    I appreciate the stigma could reduce the value but not every buyer will concern themselves with that. I have just sold a property last week and don't remember being asked if any deaths had occurred in the property so not sure about disclosure. I imagine you can't lie if asked outright. There can't be...

    If you as the occupier don't turn up to the possession hearing and the landlord claimant does, you can pretty much guarantee the court will award an order for possession to the landlord. What else did you think would happen.......?
