    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.

                Thanks for commenting.

                Thing is, as a friend, she was helping me search for items. So about 4 things we found, she found on her Shpock account. However, I always covered expenses whether she found an item or I did....

                I want to get opinions on a matter that's related to moving out and furniture.

                I rent a 2 bedroom house. I have a relaxed landlord that does the minimum but she's kind and mostly fair. I'm very good friends with her granddaughter. Sometimes the line is blurry with tenant-landlord communication...

                If you found the frames, arranged collection and paid the costs of collection I would suggest they are yours. If your friend is going to insist on them staying at the cost of your friendship she isn't much of a friend.

                I would take everything with me except what was on the inventory when...

                Thank you for the info. The house she rented from me a few years ago is and was solely in my name, I used to live there as a teenager and it's just around the corner from her mum. All of the money she paid went to her mum to be repaid to her for a deposit on a house.

                The house she rented...

                Good evening all,

                I wonder if I could get some advice on ending an AST tenancy in England.

                Originally a 6 month AST last Sept between my niece and her partner, I foolishly listed both on the AST as joint tenants and didn't list him as a permitted, there was no deposit paid....

                royw - Well said, if only, we have far too many 'hangers-on' and those with a vested interest in doing the very least for the very most.

                Any scheme introduced which will be administered by the local authorities will be an exercise in futility, they will take our money and pocket it, simply...

                Sadly, the more and more time I spend on this forum, the more I'm coming round to the idea.

                NRLA training is straight-forward and very cheap, people should take a look. There is the added benefit of all the advice and forms etc...
                Keep things as they are
                Have a Compulsory (cost sensible) Training Requirement for Landlords
                Have a Compulsory (free) Landlord Database to be operated by NRLA (or similar)
                Have a Compulsory (free) Landlord Database controlled by Local Authorities

                They should start by making sure letting agents know what they're doing.
                No register will be free, we will be paying the inflated salaries of yet more pen pushers. The law abiding will pay for it and the rogue landlords will continue to ignore regulations just as they do now. IMO the country...

                In the EPC consultation there is a suggestion of a national register, at a cost of £30 per property.

                "we are proposing to expand the scope of the current PRS Exemptions Register and redesign it as a property compliance and exemptions database operated by a third-party provider. "...

                We also need tenants to educate themselves - the How to Rent guide is so basic and by the time they receive it it is too late. Tenants calling out LLs on EPCs, gas safety, EICRs would encourage LLs to be compliant and we could identify tenants who are complicit in poor standards in return for cheap...
