    Happy to help.

    If you have any letters that you have sent the tenant or any person representing the tenant concerning the condition of the property or their failure to observe the terms of the tenancy agreement, add those too to the list.
    I have sort of, at the end of the term when i conducted check out with a rep for the T(the company) i made a list of all that was missing & damaged for each room & posted it with a covering letter but did not get a reply. I will be submitting a copy of this.

      Today i had my property mangment company that i used to redecorate & re furnish my property contact me. He told me that the director of the company (my T) phoned him & was asking questions like:

      When did you carry out the works?
      Do you have recipts for the materials used & for fittings replaced?
      Will you be prepared to testifiy in court that you carried out the works?
      When did you do the works?

      & also told him (property mangment company) that i will pass your details onto my solicitors & they will be in contact with you. He (the director) even said he was pat of the authorities.

      My question here is as this is a small claims court can the property mangment company be forced to go to court as he does not want anything to do with it?

      I hope the above is understandable. Any advise would be very helpfull.

          Surely there is no contract between your T and your property management company PMC. Each has a separate contract with you only. Consequently, T cannot sue PMC and vice-versa.

            Not long left for the court hearing & i have been looking at the documents submitted to me & the courts by the T (company) & noticed that the witness statement does not have the wording 'I believe the facts stated in this witness statement are true' at the end & also it has not been signed.

            Is this statement valid?

                If you are going to court on a defended case you would be very wise to seek paid legal advice.

                  Thanks for your reply Bel, i am well aware that i can get paid legal advise, but i thought as everyone does i'd ask on this forum first.

                    Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

                    I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

                    I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

                    Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

                    This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

                    But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

                    by Lillylisa
                    Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

                    Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

                    With your tenancy agreement
                    • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
                    • Guarantor
                    ...

                    To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
