    First off, please do not use caps-lock. It comes across as shouting.

    You cannot force the tenant to sign a new contract. There is already an existing contract, whether written or verbal. You also cannot force the tenant to pay a deposit after three years.

    It would be highly advisable to seek specialist advice from a landlord & tenant solicitor as to your legal obligations as landlord, before considering the demands you would like to impose on the tenant.

      I AM INHERITING A FLAT WITH A TENANT..
      So what is the current ownership status of the flat? Where is the Probate process??

      Have you seen this thread,

        I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

        We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

        My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

        What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

        Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

        I humbly note...

        The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

        The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

        I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

        In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

        IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.

        What you are proposing would breach your mortgage terms and possibly result in place being repo'd....
