  • In a bicycle safe in front garden shed.

    Considered having lodger's bike locked in front garden shed instead of back garden shed. Would that be just as safe?

    What are your views on keeping valuable items locked in a front garden shed?

    Front garden is narrow with enough space for car to park and narrow bike shed. No gareden gate.

    Thanks

    depends where you live! Where I live probably yes. 5 miles down the road, definitely not!

      In my experience, nothing is ever completely safe from a determined thief. You have only got to get one dishonest person to see the bike being put away and taking a fancy to it and its gone!!!

        Where I grew up not only would they take the bike, but they would take the shed as well.

          Yes you are right. If the bike goes roiund the back the dishonest person would not know which house the lodger went to because he would be walking down the alleyway before he got to the house.

          Thanks for your advice and view everyone. I have decided that it would be best to keep the bike at the back.

            Hello, I moved into a friend's flat when she moved out of London last year. It was agreed that I would pay market rate, would not need to pay a deposit, be able to bring various items into the flat, work from home, have a certain amount of storage etc.etc. I was also to share with my friend's then...

            Many thanks. It is only a verbal agreement (like so many flatsharing agreements are) with two months notice either way and that I would be given certain storage (some of which the Hungarian has nabbed), that I would be able to work from home, get a cleaner and bring items into the flat ie television...

            The only thing that matters is your contract. What contract do YOU have (not what Emma has signed with someone else)?

            Unfortunately (I know its not going to be what you want to hear), I suggest you will have to chalk this one up to experience. Without an inventory you are up the proverbial without a paddle I'm afraid. In the grand scheme of things the damage you have described is very slight (bar perhaps the carpet)...

            I'm so sorry if this has been asked before, but for some reason I am unable to search the forum as it's not bringing up any results.

            I know the eviction date will vary depending how busy the local courts are. My local court has indicated 6-8 weeks.

            I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out. As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

            The deemed contract is with the owner or occupier and commences when gas is supplied.

            There's no obvious hierarchy of owner/occupier and, while there are references elsewhere to the owner being liable for things when the property is unoccupied, that isn't reflected in the deemed contract...

            Poster - I dont think theres anywhere to "go from here" until you get the letters sent off to the debt collection agency and to EON in line with my post somewhere above - as you arent the executor simply remove that part. But fundamentally they still need to know about your wifes passing and...

            JPK - it doesnt matter what the incentive is or was, the deemed contract is with the occupier, not the owner - unless there is no occupier. As such, if it can be demonstrated that someone else was living in the property the debt is with them, regardless of what EON may like....
