    Shed removed without permission

    Hi looking for some advice..neighbours have told us our tenants have given away the shed to another neighbour and intend to build another handmade shed...without our permission. They have only been in newly renovated house since June. What should we do?

    Contact them and ask them what is going on.

      Are they up to date paying the rent? is anyone skilled enough to build a decent shed? has it actually gone yet or could this just be a plan?

      As long as the person is skilled and they undertstand that the new shed belongs to you if/when they leave then I would be ok with it....

      It does seem a bit strange but could it be that it's not actually gone yet and they havent spoken to you yet and the complaining neighbour wanted the shed and feels put out?

      Can you peak over the fence and see?

      All the best

        If they stay another 30 years not a problem. If they go in a month perhaps an issue depending on state of replacement. Sounds like they plan to be there a long time (good).

        Ask what's happening, calm & polite.

          The shed has gone and is in neighbours garden opposite. Rent upto date. Won't be there long term as she is pregnant and they already have one child...2 bed house. We were thinking of getting an inspection done so that we have it documented and then go from there?

            Deal with it when they move out.
            You won't get the original shed back now and you can claim your loss from the tenant's deposit.

              I think an inspection would be advisable. You can then check if they haven't also 'given away' anything you have provided inside the house or made any alterations without informing you.

                Given your update re the shed already gone I'd be tempted to let it go now and worry about this when they leave. Then ask for a replacement or deduct from the deposit if they take the new shed. That will depend on how old the shed was and how good the new shed is if they leave it.

                You will have more to go on when the new shed appears then you will be able to decide where to go with it.

                It it were me I'd be annoyed, it's the wrong thing for them to have done, but I'm constantly trying to not worry about the smaller stuff as it leads to a less stressed life.

                If your rent had stopped then I'd deal with this in a different fashion but if the shed was say 10 years old then try and relax. You could come out on the upside with a really nice new shed that is attractive to future occupiers...

                Stay close to the neighbour that reported it,,, sounds like a good source of info

                    Do they risk revenge and the tenants then just stop paying..which is a much bigger problem

                    I mean you have to be pretty full of yourself to give anyway someone else's shed right?

                      I think if I was the landlord for this property I would be arranging an inspection for peace of mind. To give away property of the landlord which may be worth a few hundred provided the shed was in good order causes concern. A decent sized shed is going to cost around £200 to £300 to replace. They may have intentions to build a new shed but winter isn't far off and with a baby on the way they may find they have other priorities.
                      The landlord only knows what they have heard from this neighbour, some payment could have been received for the shed for all they know.

                        What was the shed like? I've rented a few properties with "sheds" that amount to no more than rotten litter left behind by a landlord that can't be arsed to take it to the dump.

                          If you could move it to another garden, it must be in reasonable nick.
                          I've got a shed I'm perfectly happy with, but I'm not sure how much would survive being dismantled, moved and reassembled.

                            I would not advise inspecting tenanted properties internally at the present time.

                              I'm learning with time to 'not upset the apple cart' if the rent is still flowing in the correct direction leave this be especially with the state of the world at the moment. The last thing you want to do is upset your tenants while you are currently powerless to do anything about the situation... just bite your lip until the world improves
