    Wrong Dates

    I have accidentally written the wrong dates on an agreement

    I have put in to start 1st June and to end 30 November instead of 31st December

    Can it be left as it is as long as if I want to give notice I do it for end of December or should I ask the tenant if I can change their agreement?

    The rent is payable monthly

    The dates you have given, are a 6 month period - usual for a first AST. Is there a specific reason you want a 7 month AST?

      No, the tenancy is for 6 months - I thought I was correct putting 1st June - 30 November, but then someone else has told me that you count the first month as being July, so the 6 month is December so it ends at the end of that month.

      I always thought it was all of June, July, August, September, October, and so it would end on the last day of November being the sixth month.

      Now I am completely confused!

        Don't put an end date, just 6 months from "x" date.
        Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

          but I already have put an end date of 30 November. So is this correct as six months, or should it be 31st December? If the latter is the case, I presumably need to change the agreement in case there are problems later?

            You have done it right dont worry

            June
            July
            August
            September
            October
            November

            Equals 6 months

            December would take it to seven months (count on another 6 months it takes you to may)

                Sorry but I must reitterate that she DID provide all documents which were initially requested before both parties signed the lease. This new, rigid requirement for a utility bill only came a day before the agreed move-in date.

                This is not a case of a prospective tenant having no paper trail....

                My partner has recently signed a lease through a well known property agent in London.

                The lease was also signed by the landlord. References from current + previous employer, landlord, etc, and proof of address were requested before signing, and provided.

                Upon signing the lease...

                Firstly, she already provided the previous lease, along with a document from the municipality of Amsterdam stating that she was registered as living there. I paid the bills as we were living together, and she has closed her Dutch bank account (as is required when you are no longer a resident). I'm sure...

                No bank statements with the old address on? These are available freely from your online account, or previous utility bills, council tax bills etc. I find it difficult to accept that they are unable to provide something. I would have concerns if you were my prospective tenant. You need to provide the...

                When you put it like that I'm more inclined to edge towards the S21 route regardless. As much as part of me feels some compassion for the guy and doesn't want to lump more stress on top of someone who appears to be struggling already, as has been said before, none of us are acting as a charity.

                Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

                TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

                Thank you.

                My initial contact with the police was just a phone call to the local station. As I almost half expected they wouldn't give up much info, I didn't particularly push back when they said as much and I left it at that. A formal complaint might fill in a few blanks in the story but...

                A back door way into finding out what did happen (or more info than you have now), is to ask for a callback from the local PCSO who covers the beat area where the tenant lives (go online and start a live chat), he or she will know far more about your tenant that a faceless comms operator at HQ or anyone...

                Just because someone knocks on your door, even if it crescendos to them banging loudly on your door, it doesn’t mean you have to answer it or have to go and investigate.

                If the tenant suffers from mental health issues and the police were sent round because someone thought the tenant’s...

                From painful personal experience of this issue... You should formally contact the police, ask them why they broke the door down and ask for compensation. Their lawyer will then write to you with some information which may be useful for you to know (but not giving very much detail). I expect they'll...
