    Without going into detail about the whys & wherefors, I had no choice but to except property as I was in homeless accom. The council give you one chance to refuse a property with good reason or they drop you from housing list. As I was in temp accom, we didn't get a choice...

    Aslo you mentioned "I agree. As long as what L let is unaltered, and T's rights are unaffected, L is not obliged to forewarn T of its sale-off. "

    It is altered as they have sold a portion of it off?

    It looks like the bottom line is that there is nothing we can do, they have no responisbility to notify us of the sale.

    Thanks for all your replies.


      It would be worse if you owned the house I suppose and the land had been sold privately - then there would also be nothing you could do but you would be stuck in the house. Perhaps at some point you will find a better property where you are totally happy and will move - though that is probably little consolation at this point. I am sorry you have been upset by this but hopefully all will be well for you in the end.

        Hi ya,

        It's just a shame that every little bit of green now gets sold off. I know why they didn't notify us, because they knew we'd all object. IF they spent the money on doing the mtce on the houses then it wouldn't be so bad, but you know that won't happen.

        Next thing will be the trees coming down & planning permission going in for a big 2 sided, 22 story

        Many thanks.

          It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

          I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
          I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
          I do not intend to live at the property
          Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
          As its...

          I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

          Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

          If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

          That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

          The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.

          I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

          You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

          I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

          I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
