    Property Inspection

    It is basically simple question. I am writing complain letter to estate agent. I do know landlord sister have done inspection along with employee of the estate agent. She was rude and took pics of our possessions and her sister shouted at my X-wife and X complaint to police. I would like to add to the issues.
    Is it legal? I mean landlord's sister can do the inspection? I have other main points, but would like to add this issue too. thanks.

    Not sure why you think landlord or his sister shouldn't inspect property, seems innocuous enough.

      Landlord or estate agent and his employee can do the inspection as landlord has authorised estate agent. But I believe what capacity landlord's sister can do the inspection as landlord done inspection some times and some times estate agent.
      But landlord sister has no official capacity or related to the house , so I just wonder.

        Not sure what you mean by "official capacity". A random estate agent employee asked to do an inspection does not have any different "official capacity"

        If you are concerned about photographs of your possessions, if they are just that, then it would not be appropriate,. However photographs of damage or of things likely to cause damage which happen to include possessions, or of required repairs would seem totally appropriate.

          Out of interest, did you get written notice of the inspection, and who let the sister in ?
          Fed up with nitpickers and rivet counters...

            Why did they shout or swear? You can report abuse.

            You can actually refuse entry but never really worth it. If I was leaving a property however and landlord wanted viewings I would refuse not my problem.

              mokka,

              Sounds a great idea. Likely attitude that will get you excluded from viewings anywhere else though, but that's OK.

                Not if you are intending to buy and the landlord is a slum landlord who deserves no favours

                  I can't disagree with that. I thought you were suggesting being disagreeable and unhelpful just for the sake of it.

                    In 10 years time if I asked your ex-landlord if you were a fair and reasonable person, what would they say?

                      Oh no. I would be fair. Good landlords deserve respect.

                            It was an old issue as I am compiling list of issues in my 4 years tenancy against the estate agent .
                            My estate agent refused my NTQ 3 months ago and finally I gave another NTQ and left the property with out looking for confirmation as I am on joint tenancy rolling. But he still insists I am liable for future rent etc as rest of tenants holding over.
                            My x-wife accepted inspection and estate agent employee and this lady (later found out sister of land lord) made every tenant uncomfortable , rude and shouted in front of my child who has ASD and can't tolerate loud voices/shouting. It was a night mare inspection. The door handle is broken, but this lady shouted at my x-wife saying it was deliberate.

                            I have valid complaints like dampness and mould and extractor fans never worked in bathrooms etc.. As I left the property but would like his response to my complaint list.

                              So you are in favour of being nice to slum landlords when leaving? ( albeit still following the law) I don’t think so. I agree to disagree.

                                Hey OP, my house was turned into a cannabis farm, and this was using a very large popular high street agent.

                                There are two ways to obtain an address at least.
                                One is to write to the agent and ask for the landlord's contact details in writing.
                                They have a limited time to respond, and a failure to do so is a criminal offence.
                                Albeit one that's never ever prosecuted.

                                Hi All,

                                I have recently received the DPS decision on a deposit dispute that I had with the tenant. I am shocked by the low amount that I have been awarded and I am severely out of pocket by the amount I had to spend to get the property back into a good condition.

                                Your name is what you’re known by, and people can have multiple names.
                                A deed poll is simply a formal route so you obtain documents with a name different to your birth or married name.

                                If you were born Susan, but everyone calls you Snake, you can sign contracts or be served warrants...

                                But that’s not what you’re suggesting it says.

                                You’re saying it means, has the tenant received an EPC that was current when the notice was served? And it doesn’t say that.
                                Which is good, because the author of that web site is a solicitor and that’s not the law says.
