    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


      Thank you for that, I will do.

        Unless this place is unbelievably great otherwise, I wouldn't go ahead.
        The seller should have sorted that out, or at very least brought it to your attention at the start of the process.

        And what else haven't they told you?...

        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,...

        Section 8 notices don't expire, but some of the grounds are implicitly time based,
        For example, you might find it tricky now getting possession for anti-social behaviour in January 2021.

        In the opening post you said there was 6 month fixed term AST with both your niece and her now-ex-partner named as joint tenants. Now you are saying there was never a tenancy agreement drawn up.

        With the benefit of hindsight it would have been better if you'd had your niece pay money into...

        Good evening all,

        I wonder if I could get some advice on ending an AST tenancy in England.

        Originally a 6 month AST last Sept between my niece and her partner, I foolishly listed both on the AST as joint tenants and didn't list him as a permitted, there was no deposit paid....

        Guess I've been very lucky this time. My niece has informed her partner that she is ending the tenancy and signing up for a new one in her name only and he is ok with it. She did point out that he will no longer be responsible for any more rent or bills when it's totally in her name.

        There may be something on the NRLA website, but I don't know of a standard template.

        To be honest that clause doesn't seem to help you a lot, it stops you using a s13 notice (I'd wrongly assumed that because it said "may" you'd be able to) but doesn't actually help you with an...

        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?...

        Thanks jpkeates, I looked at the form 13 but that’s for if you don’t have anything in your tenancy agreement with regard to a rent increase. Is there a pro forma for a rent increase if there is a condition in your TA?
