    Agree with that, i work with a number of housing associations and i can assure you that the '' cupboard is empty '', if they did end up at the mercy of the LA then it's emergency accommodation all the way !!! They have only one chance of getting a house or similar, and that is with some kind of vulnerability or their behalf or a family member, and by that i do not mean '' stress '' or a '' bad back '', genuine and real - disabled children with specific needs etc.

    So yes they can fall on the charity of the state, but it is somewhere i would not wish to be in 2021.

    Ground 14, no minimum notice period.

    In the real world, it's nigh on impossible to evict for anti social behaviour and section 21 is the only realistic option.

    My tenant did not ask me after the eviction for a reference. He knows I would not give it to him. He can ask his previous landlord who went out of his way to give him a very long glowing reference.

    I wonder if I should contact the previous landlord and tell him what happened or best to forget this saga. I am selling now. The end.

    What!!

    what’s wrong with people.

    I was in this situation a few weeks ago, when i had to evict Ts from my property. Another prospective landlord rang me himself to ask for reference. I just gave a honest review verbally and wouldn't put anything down in writing.

    Yes I am about to issue S8 with notice to leave in 5 days, although I will gamble on him leaving when he says he will on 13 Sep and not incur cost of application to court until I have to. He rang me yesterday begging me to let him stay, was willing to renew for a silly high rent and all upfront. I thought about it for 2 secs and I can certainly do with the cash but said no.

    Please don't give a reference that might lead another LL to take on a bad tenant.

    immoral.... yes, the legal side of anything would be impossible to prove.

    But why do you need too, you give the reference when he or she goes, if on a S21 they go anyway (reference or not). I certainly would not give a glowing reference to someone who i was evicting, not a chance.

    While many on here worked their socks off for years during the day and then evenings and weekends putting their money into property, many others decided to live for the day and have total disregard for the future and what it may bring.

    Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

    With mortgage rates going up fast...

    I'm more concerned at the possibility of a winter of unheated rental properties and then the tenants expecting me to deal with the resultant mold.

    I think the deposit of five weeks rent is more trouble than its worth. Not taking deposits means being a bit more selective in choosing tenants.
    Considering the value of the asset the tenants are trusted with the deposit rules are crazy. But thats only one of the red tape obstacles to being a...

    Hi All,

    i would be grateful if I could get some help please.

    I got an estate agents to find me a tenant and do all the paperwork and get proof of service for everything, tenant moved in and paid deposit just over a week ago.

    The estate agents took the deposit from...

    The daft thing is that because people will owe them the money, it won't even affect the energy company profits.

    Looking after a significant amount of someone else's money is not a trivial undertaking.

    I spent most of my career designing and building business solutions to replace manual processes.
    So I have a reasonable idea of what's possible.

    There's nothing in it but downside...

    As said the idea of simply not paying is in the realms of crazy. They can get a warrant and fit a pre-payment meter to the house without your consent, i understand they will not be able to do this with everyone but the message will soon go out if they target the 1st few thousand, and as said your credit...

    You accept and defer ,and I take the view that the DPS could set up a programme where the incoming receipt of fund(and email details) could trigger the transmission of information relating to the DPS, and its processes. It means there is one less thing to go wrong. I like an easier life and do not take...
