    Always better to start a new thread; otherwise, as here, it's confusing!
    As regards your question: contact HMRC (Valuation Office). That's where newer RVs- and Council Tax bands- are determined.

    "Post-1990 conversion"? Is that relevant to an ancient low-rent letting? The RV here is that which s.5 of 1977 Act states, not anything newer.
    See post #2.

    Probably not now, as RVs are- otherwise- rarely relevant.

    Just saw the post RE the water company now. I'll try them too.

    Lawcruncher, yes the deal was that while he tended the grounds (for the whole site) his rent never went up. If I was to convert then there would be no need for him to tend to the grounds anymore.

    I'll get the hang of this one day

    I didn't think it was possible to go back to 1970 with rateable values, and a quick call to the VOA they told me they don't keep those records before 1990. My only other port of call would be the council wouldn't it, or is there another source to find this info?

    The current RV, if it's any use, is £4550

    I am not sure that looking into what type of tenancy it is helps in this case.

    What was the deal the old chap got? Look after the grounds and the rent won't go up. If he has kept to his side he will expect the rent not to go up.

    If you attempt to disturb the arrangement and it gets to court, the court will say that you purchased with full knowledge of the arrangement and (presumably) paid a price accordingly, therefore the arrangement is binding on you.

    STILL NOT RIGHT!
    RV is not a payment nor a 'per week' amount. Instead, it was a set per-property figure as a sort of value of imaginary letting.
    Ignore how it was calculated; just advise us what RV figure was, so as to determine whether 1977 Act protection applies.

    NO- not "How much was paid?" but "How much was RV?"

    Sounds like some education in how to be a landlord might be wise. When I started I thought I knew what I was doing. I didn't, expensive, stupid, mistakes! If you think education is expensive, try ignorance....

    I am a new landlord and looking for some help with the AST.

    Hi All,

    I want to add the following break clause into my AST, but I’m wondering if I do so, do I also need to give my tenant also a break clause?

    by Hudson01
    Well you have heard the opinions of a great many very experienced landlords........ you are taking a very big risk with this, you say you don't need the money, so why take the risk ? Leave it empty and come back to it still....... empty, there is zero guarantee they will move out, friends or not.

    I cannot find a definitive answer to my question by googling so here goes.

    I have a house that I wish to allow a family who are close friends to live in while I live abroad as UK non-resident. I am trying to work out what sort of contract I should make between us.

    I don't mind...

    You created the AST, or you got it from somewhere?

    You can get the AST signed before someone moves in (how soon would they actually move in?) and when are you giving the keys?

    You should have a Guarantor's specific agreement if your going down that route, these days they can...

    Generally yes, landlord only break clause is an unfair term. There's really only very limited reasons to have break clause in typical residential letting. Just do a 6 months fixed term and then let it roll periodic.
