    Landlord on holiday-must I notify tenants?

    Hi
    I am a L and am going on a 8 week holiday. Do I need to inform the tenants?

    I wouldn't. They might want to come with you.

    Seriously...if nobody else is managing the property in your absence, it might be an idea to give them a number where they can contact you in an emergency. (One which relates to the property, at any rate).

      If you do not, what will you do when you return and discover that the water tank in the roof has burst. The tenants are claiming for illegal eviction, the property is sodden and mould-ridden.

        How do they normally contact you?? I always give tenants my mobile (even if there is an agent) and last May in Malta received a call from Polish tenants with a problem, as I always take my dog...

              Ah! (Low-energy light-bulb comes on in head). That makes a bit more sense.

              Still not sure about the use of 'as', but never mind.

                  Good try, Jeffrey, but I was puzzled by the pragmatic implications of 'as' rather than the semantic ones - and 'as' for 'has' would lack grammatical coherence in this context anyway!

                  Have a Smartie for trying, all the same.

                    by Renterthedragon
                    I’m a tenant facing a sharp rent increase and in need of advice.

                    I have a good landlord who agreed to a rent reduction last year because of ongoing maintenance issues and lower market values. However, I can only communicate with them through an agency.

                    Approaching the end...

                    I've not found any short-cuts, as each company has their own quirks on dealing with this. It usually takes a couple of calls to a customer services person to provide the information, due to GDPR they wont say anything about the exiting T.

                    Some Councils, seem to have an online form you can...

                    Does anyone have a shortcut? Right now we seem to have to hang on interminably long on the phone to provide details of leaver readings, put the account back in landlords name and then to provide new tenants' details when the place is re-let. Anyone know of a shortcut? We used to send out letters but...

                    This may just be one part of it, as ' ash72' states there are a lot less rental properties now (and it will get worse in the future), rents have sky rocketed and a LL can simply pick and choose the very very best tenant. It has become even more important than ever to get the right tenant, this is due...

                    As 'ash72' states you may be angry at the perceived way in which the landlord has treated you but do not mix the two up, If you wish to take on more stress after you have been evicted and may still be looking for a place to live...... which with a CCJ will be all but impossible, go ahead, but i would...

                    I wondered if anyone can tell me if it is possible to counter claim for damage, harassment, poss landlord breach in contract and emotional distress in a section 8 eviction.
