    One man's trash is another man's treasure.

    Also, why is there an assumption that keys were returned. I've read and reread the OP and come to the conclusion keys weren't returned. Especially since the OP says "today my partner went to get some of the stuff", so unless the partner broke the door down, smashed a window, went down the chimney, then they would have had to have had keys to enter.

      I asked about that, and o/p confirmed they didn't return the keys.

      All that discussion is faux outrage about my 'attitude'.

        I don't think anyone was outraged by your "attitude" were they?

          Well someone must have given the landlord the impression you had moved out.

            I think we've done this subject to death, haven't we?

            O/P has obviously got over the loss of her old passport and bank statements, as she hasn't been back here for 4 days.

              That's why I said 'faux outrage'.

                It wasn't actually. It was all things I wanted to keep, including some items of high sentimental value.

                We settled the matter with the landlord directly, who agreed to pay damages.

                  Good to know and thanks for letting us know.
                  When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                  Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                    wow what a bizzare story, what on earth was the landlord thinking? Any form of finger pointing or excuse wont get them out of this pickle, they are 100% in the wrong and i would be chasing damages against them, including a full deposit return.

                      As a stupid landlord I take grave exception to your slur, Sir!

                      My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

                      Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

                      Then you need to go the route I said. Unless there is a lease which specifically defines the demise of Flat X that includes the shed(s) there is no reason at all to explicitly exclude anything....

                      As it's UC then as a landlord you need to submit a form UC47 to apply to the DWP for a 'Managed Payments to Landlord', which can include an amount for arrears.
                      However any repayment of arrears granted will be on a 'pay back at so much a month' basis.

                      UC47's can now be submitted online....

                      Well, partly, but mainly I'm considering whether the sheds would have to be explicitly excluded from the tenancy in the AST. It's a question of what would be considered the default position in law....

                      Interesting. I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Nonetheless, if the deeds stipulate that the sheds are part of the flat, rather than communal, surely that's quite a different matter....

                      I believe the OP is coming from the position of:
                      • The LL has granted us the right, beyond the tenancy agreement, to use two sheds.
                      • Would the law consider that having granted that use, the LL cannot unilaterally withdraw the use of those sheds?
                      ...
