    How to check deposit status?

    I have a couple of questions:

    I am buying a flat through an auction and the flat comes with an AST. I have left notes through the door, went personally on a couple of occassions but nobody answered the door.

    No neighbours have seen the resident.

    1. How can I check the status of the deposit for said property?

    2. I need to check the ground rent arrears and service charges arrears?

    3. If council tax is pending, can the council demand it from the new owners?

    4. If previous owners failed to protect the deposit, could I be liable for not protecting it or paying it back?

    5. The tenancy started April, 2010.

    Also need to send the surveyor and dont have access, it is likely that the auctioneers will turn around and say they dont have the keys either.

      Re deposit, you can call the three schemes and see what they say! .. On other items your solicitor should be sorting this....

      Have you "Won" the auction.. or are just going to bid? You will struggle to get Surveyor in if T is not answering door....

      Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

        This is the main concern really the surveyor needs to value the property in order to get mortgage and T doesnt answer the door.

          T has no obligation to let your surveyor in (or you!) except in exceptional circumstances. Many mortgage companies are able to do a drive-by valuation as this is not an uncommon scenario with buy-to-let mortgages.

            Yes you can start your application now. The sooner the better, I think, as it takes time. My solicitors applied in the middle of Jan but I have not heard anything yet neither from the County Court nor The High Court (I applied to both).

            As far as I know the tenants...

            I would get the advice of a good solicitor , he will charge but he will be able to help
            I personally think you did all you could to prevent this and the fact that you have -

            Hello,

            I would really appreciate some advice before I contact a solicitor.

            In October my tenant reported that their was water coming in through a extractor fan via our agent. Who sent a contractor who recommended a damp report.

            I agree to this and it stated damp...

            A worrying thought has occurred to me tonight. If furlough ends on 30th April, as I believe it's meant to, are we going to find loads more tenants unable to pay their rent?

            I know one of mine is a taxi driver, and I'm amazed he's managed to come up with the rent so far.

            Any...

            Covid or not, no one will walk over any of my rental thresholds without me first meeting them, never have and never will, I put this alone down to why after many years in the BTL arena i have had zero arrears and zero notable issues.

            Its sounds odd behavior, that alone would be a no.

            I have advertised a good size flat in a small town via an established Letting agent. A chap who lives some 60 miles away and will be working from home has got a colleague locally to visit the place and an offer has been made on it. (e will not be seeing the flat himself (as far as I am aware) and prefers...

            I can see that point of view, my concern is the length of it and how people can easily become comfortable in getting paid very well for doing nothing at all, then getting back to work. My job has meant i have worked throughout the pandemic and in fact have been even more busy than normal, i have talked...
