    How long without hot water?

    My tennants advised me on friday that they had no hot water, my usual plumber is on holiday but sent his assistant round to have a look - but unfortuantley was unable to fix it as its quite a complicated hot water system.

    Question, my regular plumber wont be back till friday - is it okay to make my tennans wait till then, or should I be finding an alternative plumber to visit sooner? (which I am loathe to do becaue I have had other plumbers look at it before and not be able to fix it)

    THanks

    I'll answer your question with another. Would you like to go a week without a bath or shower?

    You need to get it sorted out as quickly as possible.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      The answer is that it's not the tenant's problem but yours; if T does not have hot water within a 'reasonable' period then you should offer some sort of compensation.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          Do they have an electric shower?

          I am not sure what system you have, but you really should get one that any plumber can fix.
          Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

              Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

              How many occupants do you have please?

              Hi all.
              I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
              Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

              If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

              I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

              Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

              I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

              by alice123
              I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

              One of the reasons why...

              The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

              This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

              A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

              I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

              this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
