    Agree. My mum is a dog trainer, she was in crufts this year. DShe always says that dogs are pack animals and they live by their position in the hierarchy. letting dogs into the bed or onto the sofa actually elevates their position in the hierarchy and puts them on your level, and can have dramatic consequences. Keeping them on the floor keeps them in their correct position, it’s not cruel at all, it’s how their world works.

        To some extent, it will unintentionally help create a kind of bad tenant register.

        A section 21 eviction usually doesn't get entered onto the register of county court judgements.

        A section 8 eviction usually does.

        Despite the propaganda, there's always a reason for 'no fault' evictions. Not paying the rent is a big reason.

          .
          That is a very good point, the law of unintended consequences i guess....... so after a few years of all this we just have to check the register and we have a kind of tenant check by default.

            Landlords can reference tenants though. Tenants can’t reference landlords in the same way. Look at the tenant in Sydney who jokingly asked for landlord references, he appears to have been black-balled by every letting agency in the city.

              I think a lot of people get pets that are completely unsuited to their lifestyle. Not just tenants, home owners too, the difference being that if an animal reeks havoc on your property that’s on you but if you rent it’s often the landlord who ends up footing some or all of the bill.

                Presumably you must have the right to rent one and put your dog in it.
                There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

                  He just eats shoots and leaves.
                  It is ages since I lost Chi Chi, but I do remember paying £5/6/11 to remove several in-growing toe-nails in 1967.

                    Would the dog need a license to drive it assuming it was insured? Perhaps were the tenant to sit in the passenger seat?

                      I’d bet money that the hire company wouldn’t allow that. Like a landlord wouldn’t want a dog in their house.

                        And I’d take that bet.

                          It didn't look jokingly to me, it looked like someone trying to provoke an argument.

                            Tenants should be able to request a reference about a landlord from an existing tenant.

                              How about landlords not being able to demand a deposit unless they put one up for the same amount?

                                  Given you have an idea of what Kwh's were used before, and if you look at any national news channel there are many predictions on what it will be in April 2023, i would do as suggested above, increase it once, but make it BIG ....... They are looking at an average CAP of £4500-£5000 after the April...

                                  I am trying to work out the best way to recoup some of the increase in the cost of the gas given that we can only put up the rent once a year but the cost is going to be increased in October and probably every 3 months.

                                  Looking at the news today (similar to yesterday and the day before), they are talking about combined energy bills of 4-5k a year...... by April 2023. There are many properties up north where the combined rental per annum is between 6-7k....... that is insane.

                                  Air con and solar panels is the only viable option I can see going forward.

                                  If the gas is included in the agreement, what makes you think you pass this on to tenants ?

                                  I can see more problem on the horizon...... The more we insulate our homes the better they are in keeping the heat in, the problem as we all can feel during the last month is the relentless heat which then is trapped inside the home and it's cooler outside then inside.

                                  You should fix the tariff if you believe the prices are going to increase every 3 months, then you would have locked in the rate for the next 12 - 18 months, it's only then on the consumption of the utility. Are the flats legally converted if not then it's most likely a HMO property.

                                  You are able to propose as many increases as you like as often as you like. If tenant ( stupidity..) agrees and starts paying then that's agreed. If not, stuffed.

                                  However you may only attempt to enforce an increase one a year ("section 13 notice ") and tenant is, quite rightly,...

                                  No it doesn't seem workable. Even if they agree, they could change their mind about further in-year increases. You should probably just increase the rent as a one-off by a fixed amount that both of you can live with, but neither are totally happy with.
