    Short term lettings

    I was hoping someone could provide me with some contacts as we are wanting to rent out our Wimbledon 2 bedroom flat during the Wimbledon Tennis?
    Thanks.

    I would treat this as a holiday let only. Get some cottage holiday brochures and have a look at terms and conditions in those. Yours should be similar. It is a holiday let and not a tenancy.

      Be warned though - I've heard tell that the Inland Revenue are very "hot" on lettings for Wimbledon and have even heard a story where one IR investigator posed as a prospective tenant and did the homeowners for evasion of Income tax afterwards .....

        Love 'em...

        Reminds me of a plasterer I know who told me of an occasion when he did some work for a bloke who pushed him quite forcefully for a discount for paying by cash...

        "Oh no, sorry, can't do that: actually I'd prefer a cheque if you don't mind"

        "Hmm. Just as well - I'm a senior tax inspector"

        (And yes, the plasterer had been tipped off in advance, as the guy was apparently well-known in the trade for pulling this stunt!

          Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

          I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

          I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

          Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

          This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

          But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

          by Lillylisa
          Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

          Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

          With your tenancy agreement
          • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
          • Guarantor

          To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
