    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.
    Unshackled by the chains of idle vanity, A modest manatee, that's me

      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!

          I suspect the landlord used to live there and has forgotten to change his address with the land registry , easily done.

          Quite possible that the landlord didnt put the restrictive covenant in the tenancy agreemnet or they are just ignoring it - is there anywhere else that they could park...

          We have a house where there are new tenants causing all sorts of problems and I need to contact the landlord.

          I have checked with the local letting agents and come up with nothing.

          I have the details from the land registry and the owner is registered to the property address!...

          Have tried that. Landlord unknown to neighbours. They have seen her at the property a couple of times and that is it. I have only seen her once.

          Not had a problem with the previous tenants....

          Yes have tried the neighbours. The the tenants are breaching a restrictive covenant by parking in the road blocking access to other properties. The property is on a private road with well defined restrictions and stipulations.

          I have tried to speak to them as have other neighbours and...

          Have you knocked on some of the neighbors and asked them ? The landlord is rather foolish if he or she has not got a different correspondence address other than the let property, there have been cases where tenants have attempted to sell the rented house !!!! As all land registry paperwork goes to the...

          by KTC
          It needs to be a possession order originated from a s8 notice, not a s21 for someone who just happens to have more than 6 months unpaid. From another poster here, the bailiffs/HCEOs is asking for the possession order to explicitly state that the court is satisfy that the arrears is more than six months...

          by nehaven
          Reputedly they can - but is it happening? Are tenants just claiming Covid for more time?

          Case has gone through court, and today 21 Jan is day due to give up possession but not sign of them moving! No argument from their side - just not paying, didn't show up in court and totally non-communicative....

          I can only imagine that should the court do that (which i don't think they will) then it would be on the same basis your father in law lived there, so rent would not come into it. I cannot see how she would have the same right as the father of your husband, its the family relationship that ultimately...

          by Jul
          Hi my husband was given a property as a deed of gift after his mother passed away in 1991 from his father. My husband put in place through the solicitor that his father could live rent free in the property but had to pay bills and any repairs or updating. His father married later the same year. The...
