    very old tenant

    Hi, does anyone see a downside to granting a 1 year ast to a single man in his late 90s. I'm aware if he dies the estate pays the rent but anything else to be aware of?

    Why do you think estate would want to give you money? We're I executor I'd try to avoid payment. (Currently very aware of such circumstances....

    He could marry .. what does tenancy state about succession...

    Who do you think is executors and why do you think this?

    Do you want the months of void waiting for matters to be sorted?

    Artful: OaP.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        The only downside to it as i can see if the length of the tenancy, by the natural order of things it will be a short residence and then a new tenant will need to be found, i like my tenants to stay long term...... unless he is the '' Highlander ' .... he will not.

          i agree, but he is strong, has sold the family home and would like a ground floor flat. I do think he may see out his years there or maybe move into a nursing home at some point. but as much chance of staying as a young family whom want to buy, it's a 2 bed flat

            In my view you either have a lot of Money in later life and plan on giving it to the kids not the landlord or living on there small pension.

              Worst I can see is that he can't maintain the premises. I'd like to know he has family or a carer nearby unless you are going to look out for him. I handle a portfolio for someone who is 93 and showing no signs of giving in.



              Freedom at the point of zero............

                I do agree that a lot of older people are more agile than they were in the past, but at 93 this person is already 11 years over the ONS average life expectancy...... at that stage, the end can come all of a sudden or over a period of days, i had an uncle who was 91 and on the Thursday he was out doing jobs outside (car cleaning ect), but Friday he was in ICU, and by Sunday he had gone. He simply started to get tired and felt ill, no particular illness just simply his body came to it's natural end.

                By taking on a tenant in their late 90's you are building in obsolescence, in a similar way that those who fit flat roofs are..... you know for sure it will fail within a set number of years. Why ? I would go for an average age person from a pure lack of hassle basis in the very near future.

                  It is quite likely he will forget things. So i would make sure the front door could not lock him out and only deal with a younger person present. Do not expect easy access for tradesmen to do maintenance. Be careful of trip hazards .

                    I, like the forum member you decided to insult, am sober.

                    My comment is that you are a rude idiot who doesn't deserve to be helped.
                    Good luck.

                        please, if you have nothing constructive to say, then don't say anything. Rather like the first reply to my question, totally unhelpful and even suggesting he would break the law in an attempt to not pay outstanding monies owed. And I'm the idiot! Stop wasting every ones time.

                          and I'd appreciate it if you kept quiet too. I am only interested in constructive comments to my post.

                            Sorry, I must have missed the memo announcing your takeover of the forum and the new rules we have to operate under.

                            The response you objected to was a sensible response to your request for input.

                            If you really think that someone not paying rent is "break[ing] the law", you need a lot more help than you think.

                            Experience is that the most likely immediate outcome of a tenant dying is the rent stops being paid.
                            Many people are uncomfortable with suing grieving people for rent arrears, so the lost rent is a business risk,

                            So that's definitely something you should probably "be aware of".

                            To denigrate the response as "unhelpful" and to accuse the person responding of not being "sober" is offensive.
                            While you can be excused the former as ignorance, I don't know how you think the latter could possibly be OK.

                            You were wrong about the quality of the response, you insulted someone and managed to hack me off enough to respond as I did (which is extraordinarily difficult to do).
                            And then you doubled down and went again.

                            So, yes, I think you're an idiot.
                            And apologies for "wasting everyone's time" once more.

                            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).

                                Note that just because your deeds say that you are responsible for maintaining the fence that doesn't make it your fence, just your responsibility.

                                His deeds may also have a similar clause saying that he is responsible for maintaining the fence, so is also assuming that it's his fence....

                                Hello,

                                On my Deeds, it shows which fence is my responsibility, and I have always maintained it.

                                My new neighbour acquired the property next door, and later, without my knowledge or prior agreement, removed the fence completely, and replaced it with a lower one.

                                Hope you can help. I served a S21 notice on my tenants giving them 6 months notice to leave. The actual tenancy expired in August 2021 but with the Covid rules i had to give 6 months notice which means they have to be out by November.

                                Hello

                                What is the general consensus for letting tenant put holes in the walls for things such as pictures, paintings etc?

                                Is it a straight no? Or do you allow some leeway?...

                                I suspect that one day a court will interpret the law so that you will have to (which is one reason to avoid replacement tenancies), but the wording of the legislation is helpful.

                                The section 21 restrictions simply say that the landlord has to have complied with regulation...

                                Yes it does seem ridiculous I know, I guess theres a slight further complication in that:

                                - I have rent insurance, so perhaps whilst evicting I will still get rent, whilst I also try to make the necessary repairs.

                                I have a tenant on a long lease (12 months to run), I need to evict them with a section 8 which will be focused on the fact they were running a cannabis farm.

                                Fair enough, I think I was very clear, I served a S21 on the tenants in May with an EPC that had already expired unbeknown to me at the time. Although this was served by the agent apparently as a landlord I can't claim ignorance.

                                I don't think anyone here would dispute that a valid EPC needed to have been given to the tenant BEFORE the service of the s21. But if the statement is that a valid s21 need to be in place at the time of service...
