    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

        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. No, if they wont allow you to come and inspect the house there is nothing that you can do. 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

        Any help would be very gratefully received
        Hope this helps.

            The calculation should be (monthly rent *12/365 * No. of days) to get the right cost per day.

            I have a query in respect to apportioning of rent.

            If a tenant services notice to terminate the tenancy agreement under a break clause and the notice expires at a random day in the month - i.e. not at the end of the monthly rental period; will in this case the rent due for the last period...

            I understand the logic to pro-rate rent already paid when the notice is given during mid-month but the situation is different. In this case the notice to terminate was given 2+ months before expiry of the tenancy. So before the start of the last rental period (rent monthly payable in advance), it is...

          • Reply to Capital Gains Tax - do I need an accountant?
            by plgeorgiev
            Property tax and in general all tax has always been complicated to me, so I prefer letting my accountant care for these things.
            In regard to Capital gains, because I'm a foreigner I found an Irish based tax agent that prepares tax returns internationally and they saved me a lot of time and money....

          • Capital Gains Tax - do I need an accountant?
            by zoreh
            Hi, i’m wondering whether it’s necessary to use an accountant to calculate CGT and submit it on HMRC website. I’m aware of the CGT rate and allowance, so can easily figure out the capital gains. I have also kept a list of the financial costs, conveyancing and other costs related to purchasing...

            You should not agree a random date to end the tenancy, it should finish on the day before the rent is due, as long as the correct notice has been given. It would then be at your discretion to then apportion the rent if you wanted to.

            As I understand it, the general principle is that rent is paid in advance for the month. If tenant chooses not to use the whole month, then they are not entitled to a refund.

            by Lawcruncher
            A significant flaw in your plan is that you want to use the property in June, July and August and the only possible lettings are holiday lettings when the popular months will be June, July and August.

            Apart from that, if you want a flat there are all the snags (understatement!) associated...

            HI, I am a UK ex-pat living overseas and am considering buying an apartment in the UK when I retire for two purposes. One as a summer house to spend July, Aug, September in, and also to give my partner a UK base to make it easy for her if she decides that on my death she wishes to return to the UK....

            by Bob Biscuits
            Yes, hopefully it won't go that far as the council aren't aware that our S21 is not valid, and if/when it gets as far as court I will tell the court/letting agent that fact and it will buy us another few months, hopefully in which time we will find somewhere....
