  • Bailiffs

    Hi people,

    The people who rent the flat above me are being evicted on monday (24th).
    I know that they have been sent a letter by registered post to say that the bailiffs are comming on the 24th, but she has told me she not excepted it and it has been returned to the post office, she is using this as a delaying tactic, to tell the bailiffs that she knew nothing of them comming on the monday.

    will this work in any way.

    Shouldn't do but you never can tell! ... If she tries it have a quiet word with the bailiffs!

    Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

      And this has to do with you how exactly? Personally, if wasn't involved in the proceedings, I'd keep it that way.

      It's between, the LL, the tenant concerned and the bailiffs.

      If you want to do something, tell the tenant that her ploy won't work and she will be homeless on Monday, so she'd be best off looking for somewhere else to live as a matter of urgency!

          Under the circumstances you describe, if it was me, I would phone the bailiff manager at the court and tell him/her exactly what your neighbour has said.

            In that case .. carry on .. just be careful they don't see you speaking with the bailiffs, if it proves to be necessary, as you don't want any repurcussions afterwards .. they sound like the sort who might do that!


            come back and

                JP23
                We have had mice for a while now. There's only one or two that we see (we're not overrun) but still, they've left urine stains in our cupboard and behind the skirting it's ridiculously filthy and soiled.

                Are we legally able to pay for a cleaner then subtract it from our rent next month...

                Jcg76
                I have a leasehold studio flat with a garden in London that I rent out to tenants.
                Recently, the freeholder gave me three days notice that he was extending part of the building my flat is joined to and he would need to put scaffolding on my flat roof and in my garden. I immediately objected saying...

                Are you effectively saying it is standard for a freeholder to have access to build?
                I have looked at the lease, can anyone advise on someone that make the lease clear to me?...

                Elum
                Hi all!

                So we are just about to put our flat on the market to rent is there anywhere we can get a ODF application form that we can email to any prospective tenants?

                You really need two forms.
                a) A simple one for first-pass selection containing your basic questions. The point of this one is to help you decide if you are going to waste any time at all (and the tenant's time), even on a viewing.
                b) A much more complicated one (have you ever failed to leave...

                I would expect any competent solicitor to have drafted the lease to give as many rights of access for building and repair as the freeholder was likely to want. You'd need to look at the lease to know.

                If by that you meant that an application have been made for voluntary striking off the company from the register, then you need to contact Companies House to object to it on the grounds that 1) it has traded or otherwise carried on business within the last 3 months 2) that you are a creditor and that...

                Pb21
                Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

                Would the same ring true if a tree had crushed the roof? Or some non-act of God event? Surely there is a limit to where the tenants responsibility ends and the landlord's begins?...
