    Car parking space

    I pay £50 a month for a car parking space. As I’m working from home I have sold my car so will not use the space for a few months cis of this virus. Can I ask my landlord to freeze this payment so I am only paying £425 instead of £475

    You can always ask.
    The landlord can always decline...
    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).


      If its an informal agreement then he may well say yes but if it is part of your AST then maybe not, but as said a quick ask can not hurt.


        Not sure how this was agreed with your landlord and that may impact it,

        If I was you I would ask myself, when I buy another car as you mentioned you would do, what is the impact of not having a space, does the landlord have other spaces free if someone else took yours? not sure on location or availability of parking but the answer to that would probably depend on what I did with it. I realise it probably niggles you paying for a space and not using it but try and smile thinking about the saving you are making while not running a car...

        All the best Stew.


          I wont be using my flat / house for a few months, please reduce the rent. ! ! !

          The car space is for you, and no one else at present You either want it, or you don't. You can't keep changing your mind, as the space may be let to another.


            I am not aware of any law preventing you from asking the question to your landlord but your landlord will probably think you’re a bit of a twit!


              Without knowing your area but usually in busy areas the demand for car parking is very high and the available space usually scarcely available. So you can even sublet your car space to someone which shouldn't be illegal.

                I'm from UK but live overseas and recently discovered that I should be registered as an overseas landlord. I've done a bit of research on what it involves and it seems a bit of a headache - tenants have to fill out forms and pay tax from their rent direct to HMRC. If anyone here is registered as an...

                Currys CFSEWH17. This model requires a 4mm cable minimum. There is no PAT test label. The LL was asked through the LA if they wanted to carry out a PAT, but after two times of asking, the answer was returned that no, they did not.

                If an appliance has been wired in a wholly unsuitable manner that has been deemed "unsafe", thus making it a potential safety hazard, what particular regulations would be applicable? There appears to be some overlap here, such as the General Product Safety Regs, Electrical Equipment Safety...

                just give the forum the make and model…

                you could be saying I need to fuel my car but won’t say if it’s EV, petrol, diesel or hydrogen!

                and if this is a rental has it got a current PAT test label?...

                It’s not a moulded plug, no.

                I do not require any further advice on the technicalities of the wiring. The information I have been provided by by trusted parties is satisfactory.

                What I am trying to ascertain is the regulations that would be applicable in this instance. Do...

                make and model of oven?

                or is your goal to get dubious advice off the internet to try and bash your LL over the head with

                and is this a moulded plug?...

                For what reason?

                It’s definitely 1mm. The opinions of four different parties have all concurred that it is unsafe. It is the incorrect cable. This has also been confirmed....

                I have a self contained annex, it has kitchen, shower, toilet and own entrance from the alleyway.
                when we bought our house it was already there. It was build with proper planning permission.
                How do I go about renting it out. Washing machine would have to be shares in the main house. ...
