      Why object to exterior redecoration-surely this is quiet and non-invasive?There seems to be most of the work done-now you can sit back and enjoy the improved house.Most people seem to complain because the landlord does too little.

      I am having A LOT of trouble with my LL who is continually asking to carry out improvements on the property. It is literally nonstop and it has got to the stage where I am utterly fed up and want to leave.

      During my tenancy he has replaced all the windows in the house,...

    • Direct Debit vs Standing Order
      by danwestgarth
      Has anyone any experience in collecting rent from tenants using Direct Debit opposed to Standing Order? From what i understand, with Direct Debit the payee (landlord) is in control, rather than the payor (tenant). JCould be a good way to minimize missed payments during covid-19. Does anyone know of...

      Well if the market rent for your properties has increased and you think that there would be a good prospect of re-letting quickly and there is a low risk that your existing tenant will stop paying rent altogether then from a business point of view, it makes sense to increase the rent. Having said that,...

      I cancelled all my annual rent increases when Covid hit. Since then some people have really suffered financially and others haven’t. In addition LHA rates have increased substantially for anyone needing support which appears to have had the knock on effect of increasing the rent of properties now...

      Where I rent properties (Beds / Northants / Nottingham) rents have risen substantially and availability has fallen. So my question is still, 6 months on from everyone being told to stay at home and with normality of work returning for many tenants (I accept not all) and many people not unduly financially...

      I did consider approaching a Tracing Agent to try to obtain the Tenant's current whereabouts or updated information about them but the feeling is that it is not worth initiating this yet as its too soon. They may not show-up as having set-up elsewhere yet or have generated updated information about...

      The tenancy is a statutory periodic tenancy after the original AST ended. The tenant has rent arrears and a S21 was issued around 3 months ago. There is no deposit and an EPC, gas safety certificate and how to rent guide were all issued previously to the tenant.

      I believe that the tenant...

      You can prevent the landlord from entering, as you have a right to quiet enjoyment, you can even replace the locks if you would like.

      In turn, the landlord could issue you a section 21 notice, but the notice period is 6 months currently plus the court backlog.

      In my part of London there is no market justification for rent increases and imo increased individual landlord costs is not a reason to raise them....
