    Tennant wont provide a time for an inspection

    I have been trying verbally, by text and by letter to get my tenants to give me a time when I can come and do an inspection.

    I will also be giving them notice that at the end of the 6 months I will not be renewing our agreement as they have verbally told me a while back that they will be moving out but haven't confirmed in writing and I want to market the property. The tenancy agreement states I can within 2 months of the end of the tenancy.

    My questions are:

    1. Can I inform them in writing that, since they haven't contacted me having had more than a week and a half to do so, I will be doing an inspection on a set time and letting myself in with my own key. The agreement states I have to give 24 hours notice.

    2. Can I do the same regarding viewings which again states I have to give a minimum of 24 hours notice.

    Any help would be very gratefully received

The tenancy agreement states I can within 2 months of the end of the tenancy. for your information your tenant does not have to give you any notice written or otherwise in order to end their fixed term tenancy, they can just up and leave on the last day however its polite for them to give you some sort of notice. You must give them 2 months notice which cannot expire before the end of the fixed term

Can I inform them in writing that, since they haven't contacted me having had more than a week and a half to do so, I will be doing an inspection on a set time and letting myself in with my own key.

However I would suggest phoning them and asking them for a convenient time thats is suitable for them and visit with them present. You need their co-operation if you want to remarket so its best to be in their good books!

        2. Can I do the same regarding viewings which again states I have to give a minimum of 24 hours notice. as above

        Hope this helps.

            IVAs have a high failure rate. Do you know which IP it is with, that might sway me? However an iva for me might mean bad life choices, and there's plenty of prospective tenants out there without this as an issue. How long have they been a couple?

            Evening All,

            I’ve seen and read previous posts on the above matter but just wanted thoughts on what you would do in my current situation.

            I’m a private landlord not using a letting agency and spent most of last week with viewings of prospective tenants. The couple we chose...

            I suspect it was removed because they didn't ask for permission before their PM spamming.

            I see the 2 professors researching landlord opinion didnt much care for those opinions sfter all.

            The thread appears to have gone.

            We really do need to conform and not have our own thoughts - silly landlords!!...

            If an appliance has been wired in a wholly unsuitable manner that has been deemed "unsafe", thus making it a potential safety hazard, what particular regulations would be applicable? There appears to be some overlap here, such as the General Product Safety Regs, Electrical Equipment Safety...

            by Dreamingofsea
            Would it be more convenient and practical for you to just give the annex it’s own washing machine? If there is a kitchen there will be somewhere you can plumb in a washing machine. Then (perhaps) being totally self sufficient it would give you a clear cut answer as to what contract to use eg an...

            I have a self contained annex, it has kitchen, shower, toilet and own entrance from the alleyway.
            when we bought our house it was already there. It was build with proper planning permission.
            How do I go about renting it out. Washing machine would have to be shares in the main house. ...

            I wrote a considered response from fifty years of experience both as a landlord and as working for a good and going the extra several miles letting agency and it wasn’t even published. The pool of rentable property will continue to shrink in proportion to the inability to regain control of the pr...

          • Reply to Landlord didnt tell us that our rented flat has unsafe cladding.
            by Hudson01
            The vast majority of residential dwellings in this country have mains gas and mains electricity...... there are far fewer that have combustable cladding on the outside of the dwelling, which then greatly increases the risk of a fatality should a fire start. I do not consider fire marshals the same as...
