    Use "Agreements" thingy at top of screen.

    1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
    2. Telephone advice: see
    3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.

        These templates come from messrs legalhelpers and cost £30. There are a few property websites who will supply them for free if you join the site - try googling. Alternatively, you can use (amongst other sites) who will suppy one as a download for a small fee.

        Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

        • NTQ during fixed term?
          Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

          You made a claim. You tell us.

          It was claimed that a tenant may freely leave whenever he pleases once he has received a s.21notice. If that was indeed the case you can imagine the mess with all those precautionary notices.

          It was already the case...

          I totally agree, I was just trying to find any justification for claims that a tenant must serve notice in return of a section 21. It could never ever be demanded within the 2 month notice period, and in my opinion I agree it couldn't be demanded thereafter. But JJlandlord is adamant that requirement...

          We had a tenant in our property. Initial agreement was for 6 months from April 2016 but then went on to SPT.
          In June he didn't pay his rent due on 15th of the month. Chased him and got excuses. On 10th July got a text from him saying he had moved out and left a key under the mat for us. He reckoned...

          Hmm. If tenant was stupid enough to leave valuable furniture behind, it's JK0's money in my book.

          (Not that that ever happened. All I get left is broken Ikea tat.)

          The deposit doesn't limit what you can try and recover from the tenant.
          It's simply a convention designed to make a simple claim easier.

          You can't sell the tenant's goods and use the proceeds to settle their debt without their consent.
          That's the tenant's money.

          Unfortunately the deposit doesn't come close to what he already owes. Deposit of just over £1100 to cover two months rent at £900 per month, replacement carpet £200, bath replacement needed, disposal of rubbish, clearing of garden. He 'kindly' left us some furniture which I managed to sell for around...

          There are rules about who is responsible for the council tax. And they relate to residence, not the tenancy.
          If the tenant is in the fixed term of a tenancy agreement, that means they're liable.
          If they are in a rolling agreement and move out, you are liable.

          If the tenancy...

          I'd forget about getting utilites to believe you. Just work out a reasonable extra amount to add to deposit request.
