    Tenant refusing me access

    I wish to redecorate two bedrooms in a property I own. The tenancy is up for renewal in 4 weeks time so I would like them done before I start showing prospective tenants round
    The tenant refuses to let me in to do this even though in the lease it states I must give 24 hours notice to carry on repairs.
    He says he wants to be in when the work is carried on. Whilst I have no objections to this I have given him sufficient time to arrange his attendance (6 weeks)
    Am I within my rights to give him 24 hours notice and just send someone?
    If he is in when I send someone and he refuses access what are my rights?

    Hi All,

    since I plan to move in with my partner and rent out my 1 bedroom, would you suggest a short term (like airbnb or similar) or a traditional 6m/1y contract rent? I’d not move the furniture so it would be furnished, and internet will be included since I’m under contract.

    How much of an adverse affect can this have on a tenant?
    I've got a tenant who's playing the system, waiting for their eviction and CCJ
    What adverse affect can a bankruptcy order have over a CCJ on a tenant?...

    Looking at the news today (similar to yesterday and the day before), they are talking about combined energy bills of 4-5k a year...... by April 2023. There are many properties up north where the combined rental per annum is between 6-7k....... that is insane.

    Could we have a situation...

    It is upsetting to pay tax on inflation. Years ago there was a system for allowing for inflation but the tax was higher then.
    But there is no sympathy for landlords now so we cannot do much.

    That's a sensible point to make.

    I wasn't suggesting that people gradually move further and further into the economic wilderness as things get worse!

    I moved once, out of London and the South East, which is, in England, where I think the problem is.
    People who earn "normal...

    And of course the rent has gone up because of greedy landlords and has absolutely nothing to do with supply and demand. Approx 10 million immigrants all of whom need a home but no one told the land manufacturers so we have no extra land to build millions of houses on (ditto water and food)....
