    Rent payment holidays

    Hello

    As we all know that due to the outbreak of coronovirus a lot of disruption arising towards almost every sector including the private renting where the private tenants are loosing their jobs owing to this natural disaster. And at latest the govt has guaranteed that there won't be any eviction allowed for at least 3 months extendable to 6 months especially on grounds where the tenant couldn't be able to pay its rent. How about if a tenant stop paying the rent by exploiting the present offer and then later leave without leaving any contact and also by not bothering to claim his deposit back since the rent arrears would be higher than deposit then how the landlord will be able to recover his rent from that tenant. Is there any scheme gets introduced by the govt to support the landlords where they compensate to landlords similar to job retention scheme where few workers will still be paid 80% of their wages.

    You must be having a laugh. This would be political suicide, seeing that landlords are widely seen as scum...

      There is no such scheme in existence, if the tenant were to act in such a manner and you know where he/she works then you can apply to the Court for an attachment of earning relating to the debt once a County Court claim has been entered into.
      In the past I have used 192.com ( other similar firms are available) to track tenants who have done a runner , it takes time but has proved to be an exceptional way of tracking the whereabouts of individuals and enabling claims to be made in either the magistrates court or the small claims court.

        While it's true landlords are widely seen as scum, the reason for not bailing us out is because property investment is an investment business.

        Investment is risky and we've just encountered an unexpected risk.
        My pension and other investments just tanked as the economy fell, and no one's compensating me for that either.

        I have some issues with my occupation being either or both a business or an investment business when it suits, but that's been the case forever.
        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).

            They are not.

            Job losses are due to the Government's response to the virus.

              The rent is still due from the tenants (unless LL foolishly says otherwise).
              The issue is getting it from them.

                I have heard from couple of well known estate agents that in a situation where their tenant will claim that their work has been dried up and they aren't able to pay & afford the rent then before they accommodate them will ask their relevant financial documents. Because govt is offering 80% of their wages where the business will keep employs their worker in their payroll even they sit home during this lockdown. Doesn't that is a good idea to catch liars pretending loss of their earning/job.

                  any well advised landlord will say I am prepared to defer part of the rent if you cannot pay in full, not waive it.

                  • Reply to VAT @ 20% on energy bills charged on by letting agent ?
                    by Sydaton
                    I'm not saying that it's correct for the agent to add VAT (because it's a disbursement not a supply) but if they were adding 20% to the net price they wouldn't be losing any money.

                    The sums would be
                    purchase £100 + 5% VAT = £105
                    sale £100 + 20% VAT = £120

                    As a word of warning - it took my insurers two months to arrange a first inspection by their loss adjuster and five months to agree to lift floor coverings to inspect beneath after water ingress in a rental.

                    I have three 20-somethings in an ex-council flat in a block of six. A week ago they reported that the carpet and the furniture legs in the small bedroom had been damaged by water ingress. The tenant in that room had to move into the lounge. The council have accepted responsibility for the damage as...

                    This is a common thread.

                    OP - What should I do at the end of the fixed term, let it go periodic or a new fixed term?

                    Hi,

                    I rent a property. The initial 6 months of the AST ends in Jan 2022. The tenant is very nice and she asked yesterday if she can stay on for another 6 months.

                    Is it a simple case of just giving her another AST contract to sign? Im sure it is, but wondered if theres anything...

                    That's not correct, and I think the agent has either misunderstood or the accountant has been misinformed about what the agent is doing.

                    And it's going to be costly to the agent.
                    Output VAT is payable to the state, because it a tax.
