  • Land slip

    Sorry, more issues!

    Our property is being vacated by our T in 5 weeks. The house is on a quarry and recently there was a small lanslip. As a result, the max weight of vehicles has been restricted to 3 tons - aprrox a large transit.

    If our Ts kick up a fuss about this and refuse to move because it is extra hassle/cost using smaller vehicles, what can we do? Thanks.

      Send them the Civil Defence information packs on 'What to Do if your Home Collapses Under You Due to Subsidence' and 'Landslides : How to Stay Safe'. That should do the trick

        Demand Government Subsidies for Subsidence?

          The goverment/council are obviously responsible, yet T now claiming 'not our fault' and demanding money towards extra cost of moving out, ie will need to fill 4 transit vans to ferry stuff to end of road then transfer into larger HGV. I don't know how much extra this will be, but with 2 weeks rent left, due on the 10th April, I have a feeling this will not be paid or reduced by T. We didn't take a deposit (lessons...)

          If the landslide is entirely and utterly not our responsibility, I presume any attempts from T to get money out of us/withold rent, would be illegal?

          When the tenancy agreement ends on April 25, do we have a right to re-claim house whether T has moved out or not?

            Not if our new Ts see them...

              Yes, but you:
              a. will need a Court Order if T sits tight; and
              b. may need bailiffs to evict T.
