    Rent Repayments From Covid Payment Holiday

    I am looking for guidance on whether there is a deadline for tenants to repay their 3 month payment holiday during covid ? I have read the govt information which indicates that between tenant and landlord a repayment plan is to be agreed but I have held off pushing this to ensure my tenants are in a more financially stable position but conscious if there is deadline legally. They are also moving out so want to ensure the process is at least initiated but the govt advice seems a little generic. Any advice appreciated.

    There's no statutory deadline, it would depend on what you agreed with your tenants.
    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).


      What was the written agreement between you and the tenant when you gave them the holiday?


        There was nothing official it was a suggestion, as LL's who had mortgages were given the holiday from their provider. It all depends upon what you had agreed with your T, and the payment plan.

          Just dont sell… problem solved

          If Labour get hold of this country again after Blair messed it up then we will be well on the path to becoming a socialist state and anyone who is considered well off will be in trouble. We all know that socialism doesnt work....

          Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

          Hi all, sorry if this has already been asked/answered, but can anyone give me a link to the law regarding holding deposits?

          I have not been able to find anything official to confirm that the landlord/agent is allowed to keep this if the applicant fails to proceed with the application and...

          I have a very small flat let out to a single tenant. The tenancy agreement states the maximum number of occupants as one.

          The tenant now wants her mother to stay with her as a guest for several months (she would have nowhere else to stay as she is not a UK resident). ...

          Your opinion on what constitutes negligence doesn’t really matter. It’s the law’s take on it that matters. If I went out and murdered someone when I wasn’t in my right state of mind then I could use the ‘diminished responsibility’ defence. That’s for a most heinous criminal offence so...

          Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

          TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

          theres no way this will happen. The gov have no idea what they are proposing, its all a pipe dream designed to get people thinking. It was like when they said all gov funded construction projects needed to be undertaken as a BIM process by 2016 because they wanted to reduce the cost of UK construction....

          Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?
