    Does she have to allow photos to be taken of the inside and outside of the property as this would seem to be an invasion of privacy ?
    Only an invasion of privacy if the person can be identified from the photos.

    There is nothing wrong with the for sale sign outside and a photo of the property, legally.

    What they can't do is conduct viewing's without your express permission, otherwise agent and LL risk committing a criminal offence.

      landord wishes to sell property

      my landlord wishes to sell the property. there is no provison in the tenancy agreement that provides for access other than " access with 24 hours notice at reasonable times for the purposes of viewing and checking condition". the house was up for sale at some point but was not up for sale when i signed the lease agreement. We do not want viewers going there or showing up on the doorstep at all times. Am i within my rights to deny access to estate agents or viewers ? i have 5 months to run on the lease.

        You have every right to refuse viewing and there is little L or LA can do about it whatever they may say.

        Does you contract have a break clause allow both you or L to terminate the contract with agree notice? as L could impliment that if they want you out early.

        The alternate is to suggest to L that for a reasonable reduction in the rent you will assist them in selling the house (viewing and keeping it tidy)

        We get landlords on this forum complaining that tenants won't co-operate when they are trying to sell and the general recommendation to them is offer a discount then both L and T win.

          I think you should compromise as well though tbh, though as the MH said, you have absolutely no obligation to. I would suggest a set of very specific dates and times, even if that's only for one hour a week when I'd be happy to allow viewings.

          While it's annoying for you, I don't see any reason why you can't allow some people to view the property at a time convenient to you. Karma and all that.

            Another advantage is that it may give you an opportunity to meet your landlord to be - you never know. This might be worthwhile if you want to stay on for longer than the fixed period in your current AST.

            P.P.
            Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

              Several largely similar questions on separate threads have been merged into this thread (hence the repetitive nature of answers).

              • Deposit Schemes
                by CharlesT
                Apologies if this has been covered before. Have landlords on here had any negative experiences with the so called 0 deposit schemes whereby prospective tenants pay only one week's rent as a premium to a third party provider, the latter being responsible for compensating the landlord in the event of...

                There doesn't seem any way that Sara can claim to be living in that property.
                Which would probably mean that, at some point, you have become a tenant (and the person in the other room is almost certainly a tenant because they have never lived in the property with Sara).
                It would be unreasonable...

                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....

                I can see it is a complicated arrangement but as JKO says, this is your home, if you are not happy where you are then move, why try and go down the route of conflict when all it will end up with is your eventual eviction, which i am sure will come not of your choosing and as sods law often dictates...

                My flat already had curtains when I bought it, so I left them in. Then my very obliging first tenant installed vertical blinds all round, which he left when he went to say at Her Majesty's Prison . I have left them in for all other tenants since.

                In response to the OP, I would put...

                Hi all. Wonder if you can advise. I gave a fully unfurnished property to a tenant and they were aware of it. Now they have moved in, they have asked if I can get all poles bought and fitted in the rooms for curtains. It will be added cost for me to buy 6 poles and fitting cost ect. What is best way...

                Does it matter in the grand scheme of things? She's not kicked you out. If you don't like your housemate, move, surely?

                I wouldn't be laying the law down to Sarah, as I suspect you may still be a lodger.

                It would be much more sensible to let the "lead" tenant to sort out his own mess, as it was his judgement to allow the problem lodger into the property.
                And that is what is happening, but again I cannot see why I would not be permitted to 'act in support of the "lead" tenant'....

                Hi,

                A Lodger (Excluded Occupier) needs to be excluded as his Notice Period has expired (one calendar month), and he refuses to leave

                I understand Police will not get involved to remove him, even though he is tresspassing, understand they view this as Civil not criminal....

                This is obviously a complex situation but how do you now the tenant really will go to court? Is there enough "dosh" in it for the no win no fee types? Tenant may not do it alone. Also can the OP now issue a section 21 now the deposit is protected? I think I would be tempted to do that if I...
