    Renting a brand new apartment

    Hi, I'm about to become a tenant in a brand new apartment (never been lived in). I'm going to be paying 6 weeks deposit.

    The agency i'm going through is ARLA registered.

    My question is, as it's a new property is there any specific problems I should lookout for? I don't want the landlord to blame any problems on me!

    Thanks

    Like what?

    The only thing which comes to mind is that the landlord might have too high expectations when you quit the place; ie he might expect to get it back still in brand-new condition - clearly unreasonable and unfeasible - and you might have problems reclaiming your deposit.

    I suppose you need to double-check that everything you'd normally expect to be in a home, like a TV aerial, phone line, and probably other stuff, is all present and correct, and that you don't end up having to pay for it.

        Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

        Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

        Sarah's right of...

        Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

        I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

        There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
        That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

        About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

        I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

        I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

        There...

        No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.

        But...
