    Nightmare LL

    Am new to this forum. Have recently moved out of a flat. The LL was overseas, and I had the BT number allocated to me, it was apparently his old phone number.

    When I moved, BT offered to let me take the number with me as it was only a few miles from my old place. The bugger now wants his phone number back and has been giving it out to people, who keep calling for him. In the alternative, he wants me to pay for him to get a new one at his old place.

    Nothing in my tenancy agreement said anything about this?


    The telephone contract is between BT (or whoever) of the one part and a customer of the other part. If BT recognises you as the customer, it becomes your number. If L has a problem, let him try to argue with BT (assuming that he lives long enough to penetrate its call-handling system!)

        As said above, try to talk to him but it appears he has already started to pull up the drawbridge !!! Be prepared for no rent once you tell him you are selling and if this idiot govt extend the ban again then bank on a least a year to get the property back (without rent).

        Hiya. Can anyone give me any advice please? We have a rental property on a shorthold tenancy. Tenant has always been regular as clockwork with the rent - funded by a forces pension he receives. I would say that he is not a very stable personality either. We didn't get the rent in April. My husband...

        Do this...... they sound awful and the exact type of people to take advantage of their elderly grandmother thus '' doing what they like '', its a common problem when young half-wits take advantage of an older relative. Difficult to deal with though, i doubt the Police will be interested, maybe the councils...

        There was a landslide and my Tenant had to be evacuated. They cannot return because access to the property is not safe.
        They had been reasonably okay Tenants, but as soon as this event occured they have treated me like the enemy! Everything I have advised appears to have been treated with suspicion...

        by Chester Perry
        £900 deposit and the Letting Agent requested the whole deposit as the cleaning and redecorating to fix non wear & tear damage was estimated at approx £4000 and also they stole / took 2 x fridge freezers. Independent inventory on moving in and moving out backed all this yet the TDS awarded £700!...

        Thank you....

        Have any evictions ever gone ahead since cv19?

        how long is the backlog now? Are bailiffs actually working?

        what happens if tenants say they have symptoms and are shielding?
