    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.

      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.

                    Tenants often don't have the tools to manage large foliage or dispose of it. If I could do it without too much effort I probably would or offer to arrange for it to be done & pass on the cost. It is definitely their responsibility.

                    Received message from tenant saying the storm last week had caused the bush/tree at the front of the property to blow over and could I sort asap. I replied I didn't know there was a bush/tree at the front of the property and enclosed the inventory photograph of the front showing this. The tenant responded...

                    Agree with all the above.

                    General advice is not to let to family or friends.

                    If doing it, a long AST doesn't seem helpful to me. If both parties (as family members) trust each other implicitly then there should be no need for the contract. If they don't, then they should not...

                    For a variety of reasons a family member is considering renting out their leasehold flat to a cousin for a long period of time - to provide security they want to grant a very long AST, like 8 years (till kids have left home basically). They both want to do this for security and avoidance of argument...

                    No one's at fault.
                    That just complicates things and makes it harder to agree a resolution.
                    There was a storm and it made things fall over.

                    The question is, who's responsibility is fixing the problem? And it's the tenants'.

                    Notice from a landlord doesn't end the tenancy, so a long tenancy agreement with a break clause is loaded in favour of the tenant.

                    The clause that Hooper has quoted would allow a tenant to end the agreement at any point after the first six months by giving two months notice ending at the...

                    Hi All

                    We have a property which is managed by a letting agent
                    He has found new Tennent's that want to lease it for 5 yrs. There is a large hospital near the property and the tenants are NHS workers.

                    My questions are as below.

                    1) I read somewhere a long...

                    Either the landlord or the tenant shall be entitled to terminate the tenancy by giving at least two
                    months notice in writing to that effect. Notice must not expire within the first 6/12 months of the Term and must expire on the last day of a rental period....

                    by jpkeates
                    ROFL.

                    If they move out, the rent will stop automatically (or be reclaimed by the DWP if paid).

                    The tenant can stop the rent being paid to you anytime.

                    You’ve given them notice telling them to leave in 2 months and they’re trying to do what you said to do. You...

                    Hi there

                    I recently gave notice via form 6a to my tenants with the two months notice being up on 15 January 2022.

                    I gave notice because I want to sell the flat in the middle of next year, but fully expected a protracted eviction because the tenants are unemployed and rely on...
