    Or just assume all the males are a bit of a heel.

    Is Landlord or Tenant responsilble for this.

    Only happened last year, not years before. So maybe expect it to happen again if all pellets have been used up.


    (We think dog brought one in from its paws, and got under the kitchen units, we treated all underneath and seen no more slugs, but unsure if they will return. New tenant has a dog.)
    Not a good idea to leave slug pellets lying around for months. They are toxic to some pets.

    Better to find out where the slugs are getting in (follow the trails back to point of entry) and block up any holes/gaps to outside.

    Unless there was a major infestation with lots of holes needing blocking, I would expect a tenant to do this - it's a minor maintenance task really, like replacing a washer or bleeding a radiator.

    Unfortunately I simply renewed the tenancy like I have been on a yearly basis. So when I last renewed with them I didn't give a EPC, we just renewed amicably. It's only since serving the S21 notice that I realised I should have given them the EPC when they renewed last year, except it had already expired...

    by Worriednow
    Hi All
    Hope you can help. I served a S21 notice on my tenants giving them 6 months notice to leave. The actual tenancy expired in August 2021 but with the Covid rules i had to give 6 months notice which means they have to be out by November.

    The notice was served May this year but...

    I have a large portfolio, I got tired of spending ours on the phone each week managing utilities between tenancies. I found a utility company that gave me a dedicated account team. I simply email the tenancy change and it gets sorted. However, there are a few challenges they are struggling to overcome,...

  • Reply to Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
    by Hooper
    Sounds like a poor LL. But if the damage is not noted on check-in and is listed on check out, then rightly or wrongly the evidence is in LL favour, surely?

    If there was damage at check-in and it was not noted on the report, then it is the tenant's responsibility to have the report amended....

  • Dispute deposit based on damage that landlord didn't repair?
    by kankan
    Hello everyone,

    After signing the contract, but before moving in, the flat suffered some flood damage. 3 rooms needed repainting because of water stains and paint falling off.
    We were promised that this will be taken care of after moving in. We followed up several times, but the repairs...

    Did you give them a copy of it while it was valid, or only after it expired when you served the s21?

  • What to do if letting agent stops to pay out
    by maxima
    I feel my letting agent is going under. He delayed rent payout in last 2 months. And I heard 2 of his other tenants suing him. This month he hasn't send the money for few days.

    What's the correct strategy to deal with it? I have no other source of income. How do I plug the money bleeding...

    The requirement is that whoever serves the section 21 notice has complied with regulation 6(5) of the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012.

    Which says that "The relevant person must ensure that a valid energy performance certificate has been given free...
