    Issue s.21 Notice at start of new tenancy?

    Okay, I know the Section 21 Notice would need to be issued 2 months before the AST would come to an end.

    But can the Section 21 be issued at the start of the tenancy? My agent has done that with the last letting, however when I worked in lettings quite a few years ago, we used to make a diary note to issue it around 2.5 months before the end of the contract.

    Are both ways okay?

    I have got rid of my good for nothing agent and dealing with the rental myself so just want to make sure I am fully covered further down the line just in case! The new tenant is due to occupy the property next week.

    Only one question for you.

    When the tenant is locked in the bathroom due to a broken catch on the door in your property, how does the tenant phone you or the agent to ask if they can replace the front door not yet damaged?

    They then secured the property with a temporary door....

    Hello,
    I heard through the agency that manages my property that the tenant had become locked in the bathroom at around 05:30 in the morning and called the fire service, who proceeded to knock down the front door to the flat, and let him out of the bathroom. The tenant did not call the agencies...

    I'm not sure, but I guess I should request the fire service report if such a thing exists....

    Would the fire brigade really break a door down on the strength of a phone call with no imminent danger to life ? Surely such a policy would be open to abuse from malicious ex-wifes or tenants.
    Wouldn't they just say "ring your landlord"?

    The phone is simple, people carry them everywhere all the time.
    And, in an emergency, it would be handy.

    I'm not sure how a door lock can "come off", but I'd probably decline to pay for the door that wasn't fitted as it should have been.
    I can understand why the tenant...

    I'd suggest to the agent that you'll pay someone to do the work (someone like hilariy's blinds so the landlord can have a guarantee) and deduct the cost from the rent.
    The landlord can't simply decide not to do something they've agreed to do, and the agent should be telling them that, particularly...

    Hi All,

    Hope your all well!

    I have recently started to rent a place, before moving in/signing of papers the Estate Agent showed it to us virtually (2nd September) because it was not ready yet for potential tenants to view (the Building was not complete), We instantly liked...

    Apparently the lock on the inside came off in his hand. I have no idea why he would have the phone with him in the bathroom at this hour. It's very strange....

    My flat has cladding issues so I cannot sell it as I would like. I no longer live in the city, so my only choice, other than leaving it empty, is to rent it out until the cladding issues are resolved. The housing association have given me permission to let on this basis....

    Are we sure we're not doing someone's essay here?

    Someone's letting a property that has shared ownership with a housing association?
    How was that allowed to happen?
