    Slugs...

    Tenant may in the near future experience slugs in the kitchen, mainly over winter period.

    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.

      Just make sure all females in the house have a bit of a heel, that will solve the problem.

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

          Gov.uk says "You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent." A simplistic view I know but if you didn't market the property you don't officially need one.

          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 think you have fundamentally misunderstood the responses that you have received.

          If someone sent me a message like that, they'd be blocked and ignored forever.

          The agency guy made me an offer which was quite below the market rate , I was considering the offer and two days later he asked me what I have decided to do . I apologized for not replying earlier as I had been busy sorting my tenancy agreement out .
          He replied "You MISUNDERSTOOD I gave...

          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...

          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,...

          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....
