    Sorted

    Well, the culprit has just called me and was the most apologetic lad!

    Him: "Hi, I parked in your space and need to get my car out, I am so sorry, I promise I will never do it again"

    Me: "Good, I was about to get it towed by the police"

    Him: "Oh my god, I am really really sorry mate"

    Cheers for all of the input though guys!

    There is a hedge but I wouldn't want to drive into it as it's deep and full of thorns so would definitely scratch the paint work. I am a near on 1cm away from his bumper at an angle that others can manoeuvre out, but he stands no chance. Our bedroom windows look over the car park and I our lounge/dinar is at the front meaning I don't notice when people leave.

    Easy answer - buy an old banger, add it to your insurance, tax it and put it it the car space.

    Or, contact the block manager and make a formal complaint about it.

    Could you not block it in and leave a phone number on the wind screen ?

    I have just moved into a flat that we have a 6 month lease on (renting). We have an allocated parking space with our flat number clearly painted on it. My problem is, every day I get home from work, it is taken by other residence of the same building! Where do I stand in terms of what I can do (getting the car removed etc)?

    We have spoken to our letting agent but they have not come back to us and it is getting to the point now that I want to clamp their car and I will find alternative parking!

    Thanks in advance
    Park your car directly behind him, preventing him from getting out. Put a note with your number on his window.

    When he wants to go he will find he can't and will discover the meaning of inconvenience.

    Unfortunately, we don't have such a luxury! We just have inconsiderate people parking in that space, constantly.

Not sure how much these are to purchase and of course you might not want to if you're only on a six month lease.

    You don't need the password of the vacating tenant. Their account with the utility company has nothing to do with you as you are setting up a new account not taking over the tenant's account. The section on the websites is usually called something like "Moving Home" and although you're not...

    Does anyone have a shortcut? Right now we seem to have to hang on interminably long on the phone to provide details of leaver readings, put the account back in landlords name and then to provide new tenants' details when the place is re-let. Anyone know of a shortcut? We used to send out letters but...

    You’re not really putting the account back into the landlord’s name, you’re opening a new account.

    I thought the majority of utility suppliers let you set up a new account online as they don’t really want you phoning them either. Closing the account is all done online too and the...

    Tenant messaged this morning to say her living room window and front door were smashed in last night plus some other damage. She called the police who arranged for someone to secure the broken window and door.

    by Renterthedragon
    I’m a tenant facing a sharp rent increase and in need of advice.

    I have a good landlord who agreed to a rent reduction last year because of ongoing maintenance issues and lower market values. However, I can only communicate with them through an agency.

    I've not found any short-cuts, as each company has their own quirks on dealing with this. It usually takes a couple of calls to a customer services person to provide the information, due to GDPR they wont say anything about the exiting T.

    Some Councils, seem to have an online form you can...
