  • Landlord not paid mortgage-in Receivership


    Can anybody advise me on the following. I moved into my house December 2007 and initially the rental was dealt with by a local estate agent in North Devon. Then after a couple of months I was told the rent should be paid to an agent nearer to where the landlord lives in South Devon and then now I pay my landlord direct. I'm on housing benefit and top up. Just before last xmas I got a letter saying the house is int he hands of the Receivers due to him not paying the rent. My deposit is safe as it's in a scheme. The bulk of the rent is paid direct by housing and I pay the top up online but it occured to me that I am effectively paying off his arrears because obviously the rent I paid the landlord (£625pcm) would allow for agents fees etc.

    What I want to know is, is there anyway of finding out what the actual mortgage repayments are and can I just pay that amount? I spoke to the Receivers as soon as I got the letter last November and they said the Mortgage company would be happy as long as they receive enough to cover the mortgage but theyre now saying they don't recall suggesting that.

    I love this house but no I need to find another place but as I'm on benefits, have a 12yr old child and pets things look a little grim.

    The Receivers may well be working with your LL to try and help him get back into a solvent situation, I think you should continue as you are until you have clear and legal instructions to do otherwise.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

        Hi all

        A former tenant of mine whom moved out without giving 4 weeks notice as per his contract is threatening legal action over a deposit which I did not protect in time and was returned to him in full once the admin error was realised (my farther usually deals with the paperwork)

        Without wishing to sound rude, you don't sound at all competent to head this off without help.

        I'd recommend you instruct a good solicitor specialising in property to deal with this on your behalf.

      • evicting a tenant
        Hello there, I have been renting my property for the last 2 and a half years and have been doing so with a 6 month AST contract. At the end of the current contract (which I renewed last weekend) I wish to take the property back, I stated this to my tenant before the tenant signed the current contract...

        Get a new GSC arranged. A valid GSC is a requirement during any Tenancy..
        T does not have to vacate on expiry of Repo Notice, she could remain your T until legally evicted by Court Bailiffs after a further several weeks/months.
        For ~£50 (tax deductible), is it worth the risk?

        Hi Guys,

        I was wondering if you could advise me on where I stand. I have a property which I have rented out for the last four years to a group and each time one person leaves then the original guys source a new person and just give the incoming deposit back to the outgoing person and I...

        Sloppy LL'ing.

        When did original Tenancy commence with original Ts?
        Who, if anyone, still remains?
        Did you nominate a T to do your job ie return ind deposits, check new Ts for Right to Rent, conduct nec checks on new T?
        Give permission for him to sub-let?
        How do...

        Sounds like the guy who contacted you was your tenant's lodger, doesn't it? Therefore it's up to tenant whether to return deposit or not. (Sounds like room was left in a bad state.)

        Thanks for the confirmation, so would this be ok to send to the tenant?

        I am thinking of using this template as it seems to be the best one available. I will send that and a letter stating that I will let them end there tenancy...

        I suppose on a positive the fact you returned it BEFORE the tenancy ended is in your favour.

        No win no fee solicitors like straight forward cases.

        One of the first questions they ask are if there are any rent arrears or claims to damages. You may well ward them off with a ...

        The short summary is that the situation you have created is the proverbial dog's breakfast.

        Who is your tenant? The fact that you cannot answer that question means that you are lining yourself up for massive problems.

        You have two basic types of tenancies - where you have every...
