    No, North Yorkshire! (Although it feels like the Bronx at times). Been with some kids doing a play.

      update:

      the landlord text me to say "please dont withold rent as it causes nightmares with his mortgage" to which i said he needs to make sure he sorts the plumber and washing machine issues by the end of the month, he's meeting his accounts chap this week to sort out and let me know then.

      thanks for everyones input, looks like this is finally moving forward.

        The cheeky get!!!!!!

        Tell him it's nothing like as bad as the nightmares you have had, trying to get your laundry done.

        I think you are being extremely patient and forbearing. At the very least you must claim the cost of transport to and use of, the launderette/a friend's washer during the period the machine has been/is out of action. Take it out of the rent - don't let him get away with it!

          ha ha, exactly my thoughts.... his first text was simply "dont hold withold rent", it was only after i replied with a "get your arse in gear then" that he gave me the rest of the info.....

          ive been using a collect, wash, return service and although i'm initially paying out of my own pocket the lady knows the problem and has agreed to do me a huge reciept at the end of it all so he'll be getting a copy of that complete with "..1 month to pay or money out of rent again"...

            The LL's mortgage is none of your concern (and he is a plonker for telling you) as is what he does with the rent money you give him, which supermarket the LL shops at, where he gets his hair cut or which car he drives.

            You are not party to his financial commitments, agreements and anything else outside the tenancy agreement you and he signed.

            If he wants you to "help him out", tell him you are not his mate.
            If you get involved in favours, etc., it's a slippery slope to trouble.

            I would deduct the costs of laundry that you've incurred (and continue to incur until a w/m is supplied) and let him take action if he wants.
            I would deduct the laundry costs from your next rent and not wait another month - you've waited long enough and the LL might not take your threat seriously if you keep giving him more and more time.

            Also, how poor/struggling do you have to be to not be able to buy a new washing machine of a couple of hundred quid?

              thanks for your input, ive already told him (as per my original text to him) that i will be deducting from the end of this month (ie Novembers rent!) unless things are repaired by that time......

              will see what gets said on Friday/Next Monday...

                No, he means it will cost him money.

                      I think the clause is probably invalid.

                      Tenancy start date May 2020 in England. 6 month initial AST.
                      My tenancy agreement says
                      “The landlord may increase the rent after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy…..”
                      Is there a specific form I should use?...

                      I think the clause persists into any SPT, any date in the future is now "after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy".

                      Unless the other wording of the agreement changes the meaning of this snippet, the clause simply precludes the rent being increased between the end of the initial...

                      If the fixed term has ended and it is now SPT, is it not the case that the rent review clause is of no effect and you can use s13?

                      Or is yours a contractual periodic tenancy?

                      I would not walk away.... i would run away ! Not a hope would i buy a property where there was zero building regs on something that should of had them, as said.... what other bodge jobs have been done. Not a chance.

                      Hi guys this might have already been covered before but I’m currently purchasing a 3 bed house and near completion our solicitor has managed to find out they don’t have building regs for the 3rd bedroom (loft conversion). My question is can I let this as a 3 bedroom or is it legally only a 2 bedroom,...

                      Ah.

                      They won't agree the increase, so it's more of a point being made....

                      Thanks again. I think I’ll have to just write to them informing them of the increase. They’re under s21 and s8 for rent arrears. They decided to deduct from the rent , the cost of a repair bill to which I did not agree....

                      Unless the seller did their own conversion, any builder would have been aware of building regulation requirements, and so the seller would have been aware of the issue.
                      I'd guess that they either very naively thought no one would notice (unlikely) or hoped you'd be so far into the process that...

                      Yes I was thinking they’ve left it so late on in the process in the hopes that when I found out I’d not bother backing out, the estate agents are trying to convince me that it would be fine to let out as a 3 bedroom but I have contacted other letting agents that have said it wouldn’t be allowed...
