    I must be unusual then, because having taken a huge amount of money from a tenant over a period of time, I feel if they have been good tenants then the decent thing is to provide a reference.

      I certainly would not be spending that amount of my leisure time completing a reference, not a chance. I can only assume that the ex tenant simply does not understand how long it was and may have thought you refused to even give a one sentence piece.

        How do you sue a previous landlord ? Maybe the tenant paid his rent on time to the previous landlord. I received a wonderful review from the previous landlord. I cannot believe that my tenant is the same person as in the review. I think he paid the tenant to leave.

          A reference answering 4 pages of 120 questions?

            Compare your sans souci time in filling that reference comprising on just 4 pages with the sleepless nights of 18+ months if the tenant will stop paying and retract leaving.

              How do they retract leaving and how do they stop you going for CCJ/guarantor's house/assets/attachment of earnings etc?

                To be honest, I don't have enough to do do at the moment . . . decorating room no 4 just to keep busy ūü§£

                  It is a business activity, not a leisure activity.

                    Ok..... i would not be spending that amount of time on a reference without sufficient payment of said time.

                    It runs both ways, if you look at it on the business side then the time you spend on your '' business '' is chargeable, in a similar way that doctors will no doubt be charging for covid 19 vaccine certificates so you can fly off to sunny climates.

                      I am trying to think how they manage to think up 120 questions. Perhaps the OP can scan and post the questionnaire with personal details omitted.

                        • Evacuation of Tenant
                          by berrahri
                          There was a landslide and my Tenant had to be evacuated. They cannot return because access to the property is not safe.
                          They had been reasonably okay Tenants, but as soon as this event occured they have treated me like the enemy! Everything I have advised appears to have been treated with suspicion...

                          £900 deposit and the Letting Agent requested the whole deposit as the cleaning and redecorating to fix non wear & tear damage was estimated at approx £4000 and also they stole / took 2 x fridge freezers. Independent inventory on moving in and moving out backed all this yet the TDS awarded £700!...

                          What's everyone's experiences with the DPS dispute service. Did you get what you claimed? Did you have good evidence to back it up?
                          Thank you....

                          Have any evictions ever gone ahead since cv19?

                          how long is the backlog now? Are bailiffs actually working?

                          what happens if tenants say they have symptoms and are shielding?

                          Hi

                          So I have a tenant who has build up large rent arrears and I have gone through the process with the solicitor of S8 for rent arrears and I have a court date In April. The tenant left the house last Monday and informed me they had left.
                          To me it seems unlikely I will ever get...

                          Hi all,
                          I rent out my flat using an estate agents let & collect service. It is rented out using an assured shorthold tenancy agreement of 12 months (no break clause). The 12 months ends in August this year. I have just been told by the estate agents that "due to Covid the law has changed...

                          What county court bailiffs do if they come to evict and the tenants say they are not feeling well?...

                          I suppose someone has to pay for all this furlough money, so why not tax the dead more.

                          no wonder everyone is on a scam or fiddle. You can be like my parents - honest all their lives, but are getting hammered in death taxes. And both were failed by the NHS too
