    Bad Tenants: Why didn't I think of this idea :-( ?

    Yesterday I received a 'promotional' (i.e. unsolicited ;-) email that mentioned getting revenge on bad tenants. Having had more than my fair share of undesirables over the years my curiosity was piqued. You need to look for yourselves! Unfortunately (stupidly?) there's no direct link to the service on their website - you have to log in or create an account. Anyway, it's well worth doing: go to www.letmatch.co.uk , click on the 'Enter Landlord Zone' (no relation I'm guessing ;-) and under landlord sign in click on 'create an account'. Once you've done it you will be on a screen called 'my letmatch'. On the right hand side is a purple tab entitled 'letmatch information exchange'. Click on it and have a look around. I think it's just what we've been waiting for. I'm going to start another thread about problem tenants in a mo and I'd appreciate your thoughts on that too!

    Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

    I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

    I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

    Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

    This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

    But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

    by Lillylisa
    Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

    Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

    With your tenancy agreement
    • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
    • Guarantor

    To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
