    Of course it does.
    Stop splitting hairs, as they say.Then there is no need for a gas cert' because 5 minutes later, it could be unsafe. Well, you can work on those lines if you wish, and don't bother with a gas cert.

    No one should assume it's safe or unsafe simply on the basis of the cert.
    No one should assume something is safe if a cert is required but not available., when current one expired.

    So EVERYTHING is safe,is it, if no M.O.T.; No gas certs, etc. etc etc.
    Well, I wont be going to your food preparation plant or cafe, or rented house / flat because everything is safe with no proof.

      Maybe harassment?
      They told me what to do and I did it...was not paid to think!

        yes , glad this issue has been raised , it is a big issue at the moment and i guess getting it in writing is a major defence.

            I am not sure that it will make her feel any better but I suspect that the children are more of an issue than being a single mum. Friends of mine have been rejected from every family size house they have applied to. They are high earning professionals with decent references and ... two young kids 2...

            This may just be one part of it, as ' ash72' states there are a lot less rental properties now (and it will get worse in the future), rents have sky rocketed and a LL can simply pick and choose the very very best tenant. It has become even more important than ever to get the right tenant, this is due...

            As 'ash72' states you may be angry at the perceived way in which the landlord has treated you but do not mix the two up, If you wish to take on more stress after you have been evicted and may still be looking for a place to live...... which with a CCJ will be all but impossible, go ahead, but i would...

            I am a Landlord and I have a company tenancy which has now come to an end. I did a check-in inventory before the tenant moved in and I have done a check-out inventory now that they have moved out, and there are damages to my property by the tenant. The deposit is being held by the agent and is not in...
