  • Advice needed

    We've been letting out several properties for a few years now through a letting agent but now that one tenant has put in notice to leave we are considering letting this property ourselves to see how it works out. The current tenant is due to move out in ten day but is it acceptable for us to advertise the property locally now and ask the tenant to allow us access to show round any prospective new tenants?

    You can ask, sure, but s(he) is under no obligation to agree. Most tenancy agreements will include a clause to that effect, but even if yours does, it's not enforceable by law. So be sure to try to get on their good side by offering to give plenty of notice of visits, only coming round at times convenient to the tenant etc.

    • Landlord threatening to sue after end of tenancy
      Pickle135
      Our tenancy has just ended. We have cleaned the property from top to bottom using professional cleaners to do this and clean the carpets. He suggested this hadn't been done and wanted the name of our contractor to check which we gave him. The contractor assured him that after eight years the carpets...

      Woohoo!

      Our adjudication has just come through and the landlord has been given a token payment with the majority of our large deposit being returned to us. He was told that he had not submitted appropriate evidence for the misuse of the property and that things he was saying were wrong...

      Makes sense - if the tenancy agreement doesn't say you have to let him and a surveyor in, his only right of access is with 24 hours written notice for the purpose of viewing the "condition and state of repair" of the property.

      So you can simply decline or make your point.

      I'm not trying to claim for breach of quiet enjoyment. He wants to be in again with a surveyor to use his property as security for something. I am going to let him I just want to remind him and have all the facts. Sorry if I didn't explain it right.

      Only claiming for the non protection...

    • HMO under Commercial Lease & homeowner wants to sell
      bald555
      Long story short, someone I know (not close) needed money, I gave him 12 months reduced rent upfront to help him out and put a commercial lease on his HMo with right to sublet etc (my tenants).

      Few months in and his money problems are worse and the bank (and others) pressuring him to sell...

      Harassment is way more than a breach of quiet enjoyment, there has to be a level of distress in the harassed person.

      A retrospective claim for breach of quiet enjoyment is probably a non-starter - breach of quiet enjoyment is part of the kitchen sink people throw when they're claiming compensation...
