  • How many tenants can be held liable on an AST

    I've hit a complete mental block! is it four or five????
    For the avoidance of doubt, I am not a solicitor nor a specialist. I have simply spent many years in the business and am expressing my opinions. I would urge caution to any individual using these forums as a sole basis for decision without first speaking to a solicitor.

        Hello, I moved into a friend's flat when she moved out of London last year. It was agreed that I would pay market rate, would not need to pay a deposit, be able to bring various items into the flat, work from home, have a certain amount of storage etc.etc. I was also to share with my friend's then...

        Many thanks. It is only a verbal agreement (like so many flatsharing agreements are) with two months notice either way and that I would be given certain storage (some of which the Hungarian has nabbed), that I would be able to work from home, get a cleaner and bring items into the flat ie television...

        The only thing that matters is your contract. What contract do YOU have (not what Emma has signed with someone else)?

        Unfortunately (I know its not going to be what you want to hear), I suggest you will have to chalk this one up to experience. Without an inventory you are up the proverbial without a paddle I'm afraid. In the grand scheme of things the damage you have described is very slight (bar perhaps the carpet)...

      • Landlord: When will I get a bailiff date?
        mlsmith
        I'm so sorry if this has been asked before, but for some reason I am unable to search the forum as it's not bringing up any results.

        I know the eviction date will vary depending how busy the local courts are. My local court has indicated 6-8 weeks.

        My solicitor submitted a...

        I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out. As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

        The deemed contract is with the owner or occupier and commences when gas is supplied.

        There's no obvious hierarchy of owner/occupier and, while there are references elsewhere to the owner being liable for things when the property is unoccupied, that isn't reflected in the deemed contract...

        Poster - I dont think theres anywhere to "go from here" until you get the letters sent off to the debt collection agency and to EON in line with my post somewhere above - as you arent the executor simply remove that part. But fundamentally they still need to know about your wifes passing and...

        JPK - it doesnt matter what the incentive is or was, the deemed contract is with the occupier, not the owner - unless there is no occupier. As such, if it can be demonstrated that someone else was living in the property the debt is with them, regardless of what EON may like....
