    It always has been, but in recent times the lack of property in general has made matters a lot worse. If you are old and have never purchased in your life, your latter years on this earth are going to be grim.

      Unless there's an inheritence headed your way, which for many of the over-50s there will be.

        True, but to take that chance on your future and hope for the death of a loved one to do what you should have done in your earlier years is not sensible, any inheritence should be a ' bonus ' not an essential to you having a home.

        I see renting in old age as the new danger, for not just individuals but the govt.

          Care home fees.

          That said my will reads, “being of sound mind I spent the lot.”

            We have one or two inexperienced landlords here who are always wiping their tenants' bums.

            Find a self-reliant minority in your area (here it's Romanians) and try to get their friends to take your properties as they fall vacant. I rarely hear from my tenants.

            Well I know this is a UK forum, but it is a popular one. So I thought I'd see if there's any advice here for a small landlord.
            I'm in the U.S. I have worked all my life, saved my money, and spent the last 15 years of my working career 'contracting' or working temp jobs, which always ended up in...

            by shoobydoo
            small question, but if the possession order says tenant must leave "before" 30/8, can OP not start arranging bailiffs on 30/8?...

            by patrick27
            Hello everybody, I received a order for possession (accelerated procedure) it says my tenant should leave my property before 30/8. The tenant already had an opportunity to file a defence and request a hearing but didn’t.

            So my question is, am I plain sailing now? Or could they yet still...

            Oh dear, you do seem to be in a pickle.

            Firstly, are you being selective enough when choosing your tenants or just choosing anyone so as to avoid void periods? Bit concerning that all 5 families are high maintenance, and that tenants are regularly "bolting".

            Next,...

            ash72,

            I think you will discover that many benefit recipients are exceptional money managers-after all the blind ,disabled and retired are practised at the art and have years of experience. You seem well-acquainted with this socio-economic group-are you a social researcher or a mere saloon...

            Those T's who claim benefits, were empowered when UC came about, making them responsible for the money the government gave them to use how they wanted, some misused this as they weren't equipped on their responsibilities on paying LL's on time, etc, and spent the money on whatever they wanted to. They...

          • Reply to Council tenants still not able to move out after two months is due
            by jpkeates
            Being practical, the chances of a letting agent serving a valid section 21 notice are quite slim.
            But, on 1st September you can, in theory, apply to a court for a possession order.
            If the section 21 notice is valid, there isn't any defence.

            You're right about the 42 days - but...

            Basically council still have not found them the next house. I'm so desperate and need them go. What can I do please? They are foster family, apparently very volunerable as people may think. But they terribly damaged my house, they have also cancelled UC direct payment. I need them go......
