    The conditions are not easy to find and so I thought it would be helpful to paste them here with a link to the source.

      This really isn't meant to be offensive, and I hope I don't provoke PMS, but I honestly don't understand the point to his postings. What is he trying to contribute?

      In fact, I'm not really clear why he changed his mind about his declared intention of abandoning this message board.

      Does he feel that anyone should be gaining something of value from his postings?

        Who enforces these terms and conditions? Does someone have the power to ban an individual from the forum? If so....

          Harry you are not provoking me in anyway( and what makes you think im a he).I came on this board for one reason and that was to create a balance from what is a very one-sided board.Like everyone else I am entitled to express an opinion but obviously some of them don't go down with some of the self centred bigots on this board.I've been in housing for many years so I have a very broad range of opinions and experience but because many of the posters and senior members on this board are in their own little worlds opinions and advice mean nothing.I hope that has answered your post.

            This is a thread intended to help and advise participants concerning the controls (or lack of control) on this board.

            In these circumstances I would not expect such an unprofessional comment to be made by an alleged member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

            On some forums a thread such as this would be made a "sticky"

            Firstly I question your statement that this "is a very one-sided board". I have seen excellent posts here advising tenants of the correct action to take when faced with problem landlords. Equally I have seen similar support to landlords in difficulty with tenants.

            Some of that advice has been given by professional lawyers.

            With specialist experience in health education and a member of the relevant professional bodies I deplore your use of the the offensive term "self centred bigots" to describe members of this forum whose views do not coincide with yours.

                For god's sake will you people get a grip and stop poisoning this otherwise informative forum ?

                  Jennifer - I so agree with you. PMS from his ranting posts sounds like the worst of bigots. Anyone who does not bow down before him is taken to task for having an opinion. If he/she is in housing, god help anyone who has to deal with it! This will of course produce another post. Please go away PMS so we can get back to our balanced, generally polite, helpful forum, and not have to read your impolite, unhelpful posts. Who else agrees?

                    Here Here! I certainly do. For somebody who claims to have so many professions under his/her belt, I have never heard such illiterate hogwash before.

                      Perhaps the easiest course to take will be if you all simply ignore the posts that you do not wish to read or comment upon. In this way, once it has become apparent that deliberate baiting is going to be ignored, it will soon disappear.
                      For the avoidance of doubt, I am not a solicitor nor a specialist. I have simply spent many years in the business and am expressing my opinions. I would urge caution to any individual using these forums as a sole basis for decision without first speaking to a solicitor.

                        If you trust the tenant I would allow them to decorate upon approval. To agreed specifications and at THEIR EXPENSE. This improves the property and keeps them happy. I have had this happen, new paint colour in lounge. More difficult in your case with a new tenant so I would have said wait and see....then...

                        now the flat was in a right state when we moved in - bathroom hadn't been cleaned, kitchen was a mess, oven absolutely caked in grease from the previous tenant (it still is, I refuse to clean it so I'm just not...

                        Not sure if you have a gas cooker or not. Either way, please check that you have a valid Gas Safe certificate. You do not mention the boiler but given the other issues, I hope this is safe for you.

                        A friend of mine (LL) rents his property through an agent and has asked them to get the tenant out as he's coming back to live in it. The agent served a S21 notice which is due to expire soon (we'll check, but for the purposes of this post assume that everything has been served correctly and the notice...

                        The tenant may be 'morally' in the wrong, but is legally in the right. They have no outright legal obligation to leave at the end of the tenancy agreement, which can only be truly ended by the court. In essence, the court are the 'adjudicators' of the contract and decide whether to enforce it or not....

                        The current tenancy continues until the landlord has recovered possession (or the tenant serves notice) so there's no danger of a new one coming into being accidentally .

                        The tenant is awarded costs if they lose, which is pretty standard in legal cases. If the landlord loses the case, the...

                        Ok, thanks. This seems to imply that the tenant is in the wrong by not leaving then.

                        The notice might as well say, "you don't have to leave when this notice expires, but you'll have a large legal bill if you don't."



                        Thanks again.

                        The landlord can carry on accepting rent, which is due until the tenancy ends.

                        The tenant has every right to stay, as the landlord's notice doesn't actually end the tenancy. To bring the tenancy to an end, the landlord will need to go to court. If the landlord is successful, the tenant...
