  • Very untidy tenant

    I manage an HMO which has 5 bedrooms but only letting 3 of them at the moment. Have a problem with one of the tenants being very untidy - even in the communal area and she is really getting on the nerves of the other 2 tenants. We are hoping to let the other 2 rooms soon and will therefore be showing people around the property.
    I am happy to write to the tenant re the mess but so far the complaints from other tenants seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
    Does anybody have any ideas of what else to do?- she pays her rent ok but we are keen to probably end her tenancy anyway if this is not solved.There also appears to maybe be a problem with illegal drugs but this is unproven.
    Many thanks for any comments.

        Wouldn't get you possesssion! It might frighten a timid tenant.

          This is posted on behalf of my cleaner who approached me for help after her last landlord failed to reply to her repeated requests for return of her deposit.
          She rented a room in a shared house in London, AST, weekly rent all paid on time. Notice given and accepted, room left neat and clean....

          Hiya

          i need some advise on my situation in regards to this flat offered to me and my partner. We viewed a flat which was in an old office block which had been converted into service apartments and then refurbished into flats.

          The agency we viewed the flats through did not want...

          So who owns the Freehold?
          IMO there cannot be a freehold TENANCY.

        • Agent refusing to give reference until we hand in notice
          Jenny7
          Hi, hope you can offer some insight, we are looking to move rental property due to new job starting in September in a new location.
          So thankfully we've a window to shop around to find a new place.
          We've found one suitable spot but we're still looking around, the new place has asked for credit...

          Couldn't agree more. How shortsighted. Unless they assume a tenant would leave with no notice and no forwarding address...

          Going back to the OP.

          This makes zero sense. Why would the LA/LL want a notice to quit from a tenant who they don't otherwise have a problem with. The longer until the tenant provide the notice, the longer the tenant is liable for rent. The notice period given now say, or given a month...

        • Discussion - GDPR and implications on landlords
          MrShed
          I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

          I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...
