    Sorry- meant 'delayed' payments.

    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.

      The s8 notices last a year from the date of service, the s21 lasts forever or until a new AST is agreed or until the world as we know it ends (whichever is shorter )

      If you are unsure about what to do seek professional Legal advice.

        I have a large portfolio, I got tired of spending ours on the phone each week managing utilities between tenancies. I found a utility company that gave me a dedicated account team. I simply email the tenancy change and it gets sorted. However, there are a few challenges they are struggling to overcome,...

        I beg to differ. From experience it was slum landlords not sorting out the property by means of fixing penetrating damp along with missing roof tiles for years. Black mould covering a whole wall, damaged stairs that was just clipped back together under the stair case along with collapsing kitchen ceiling...

        We have a nice couple living in our one bed flat. It's an old building with thick, uninsulated walls. We've owned it for 10 years, and in that time had 1 tenant who managed to cover the place with mould due to how she was living in it, everyone else since has been absolutely fine.

        I visited...

      • Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
        by kankan
        Hello everyone,

        After signing the contract, but before moving in, the flat suffered some flood damage. 3 rooms needed repainting because of water stains and paint falling off.
        We were promised that this will be taken care of after moving in. We followed up several times, but the repairs...

        This is why I think the current letting agents are not very good! All I asked the letting agents was to make sure the tenancy ends on the last day as per the contract and not to extend it....

        The time to start checking things is now.
        Agents are often not very good at serving notices and can introduce serious delays.

        For example, the notice period for a section 21 notice today is four months, but from October 1st it's two months.
        So serving a s21 notice this month...

        Thank you both for the reply.
        Coping without rent is not a problem. I appreciate that the care towards a house will be different from the tenants compared to owner-occupiers.
        I am hoping the tenants would move at the end of the agreement. Post christmas, will start reading about taking...
