  • 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.

          • Mouldy silicone wear and tear?
            aciduzzo
            Tenants are moving out today and i am doing the final inspection later; however, last time i was at the flat i noticed the bathroom was in a poor state.

            What is the general opinion on black mould that has formed inside bathroom silicone? Is it considered wear and tear? Also, the seal...

            You might like to gift your new tenants some Kilrock mould cleaner which is magic in a bottle! Cheapest in the Pound shop or The Range but supermarkets sell it too. Works brilliantly on algae too. Garden pots, patios, headstones etc.

            I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

            I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

            That's the exemption that allows sending data outside of the EEA, which is the issue discussed.



            No, because of that very exemption....

            mandm
            This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
            Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
            I served the...

            I'll leave it at that. I'm not going to get into one of JPK's interminable arguments.

            That's simply one of the Schedule 2 exemptions which, if met, allows a process using personal data at all - all the other principles still apply in parallel (where it can be stored, be not excessive, kept up to date etc).

            So, while it might be OK because it relates to a contract, there...

            I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

            A new 12 month fixed term does provide LL & T with extra security but can lead to complications for either if their resp circumstances/legislation change during the new AST.
            Personally, I would prefer if a orig AST was for a fixed 6 month term, followed by an SPT that required both LL &...
