      n325 bailiffs

      hi

      thanks, i'm filling it in now!

      several questions please:
      for part 2: name and address for service and payment - is this the address of the tenant? or my office address?

      for part 4: balance due at date of request - do i need to fill this in? its an s21 so i'm not after rent arrears

      it asks for a land registry fee - do i need to supply a land registry to prove i am the landlord?

      the issue fee is £95 right?

      how long will if take for the bailiff to come and do their stuff?

      can i give the bailiff a key to open the tenant's door?

      what happens to the tenant's belongings? can he take them and sell them to cover the court costs?

      please reply asap so i can serve it to the court tomo morning

      all replies would be v welcome!!

        for part 4: balance due at date of request - do i need to fill this in? its an s21 so i'm not after rent arrears leave it blank

        it asks for a land registry fee - do i need to supply a land registry to prove i am the landlord? leave it blank

        the issue fee is £95 right? yes

        how long will if take for the bailiff to come and do their stuff? depends on their backlog - you can phone after you have lodged your application to get an idea - probably 4-6 weeks

        can i give the bailiff a key to open the tenant's door?

        what happens to the tenant's belongings? can he take them and sell them to cover the court costs? unlikely. If the tenant leaves any belongings then you cannot simply dispose of them. Search on the forum for abandonment of property, or bailee for further info.
        please reply asap so i can serve it to the court tomo morning

        all replies would be v welcome!!

          if the bailiff turns up and cannot get into the property, can i give him the keys to get in?

            You need to put the full address of the property, which should match the address as stated in the particulars of claim.

            You can provide a key to the bailiffs on the day, however, presumably you are also going to arrange a locksmith to attend to change the locks?

              This is the address of the property you are repossessing

              if the bailiff turns up and cannot get into the property, can i give him the keys to get in?
              Yes He is authorised to do this.

              This is all subject to what Paul Gibbs may say as he knows much more about it than me!

              P.P.
              Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

                thanks

                lets assume the tenant tries to be clever and changes the lock b4 hand

                can we break the door down? or isnt this allowed?

                or can we enter via the back window?

                  use the locksmith to drill the lock in the presence of the bailiff.

I have a background working in property but first time for myself so some areas I am not experienced in.I have been offered a property management contract for a small block of flats. As such I have lined up quotes for indemnity insurance, public...

                    It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

                    I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
                    I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
                    I do not intend to live at the property
                    Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

                    I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

                    Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

                    If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

                    That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

                    The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.

                    I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

                    You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

                    I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

                    I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
