    Notice period?

    I know that because of COVID as a landlord I must provide 6 months’ notice (AST fixed term finished, now rolling contract). What about tenants who breached the contract (by subletting) - do I still must give them 6 months notice? Any insight?

    Both section 21 (no reason) and section 8 (ground 1 or 13) are six months at the moment.

    If we get to end of the month and the increase notice period is not extended, then s8g13 would only be 2 weeks, but that's a discretionary ground. Section 21 or s8g1 would then be two months.

      £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.

      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...

      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

      Hi. Quick question

      property portfolio is under probate.

      the land-lady (Mum) used the family office address as the landlord address on the tenancy agreement, rather than her home address. Always did this for 20 odd years.

      Under probate, I have to sign a new tenancy...
