    Flooded Bathroom


    Is it the tenants fault if the bath got flooded when the overflow hole in the bathtub did not work?

    Another question, is a 12 month rental agreement without a termination clause after 6 months legally binding?

    Well I wouldn't think they weren't responsible no. I expect a bath overflow to work after all (unless T has stuffed it full of stuff ?)

    Of course it's legally binding. Why on earth wouldn't it be ?
    I'm a good tenant with great landlords
    I'm also a living, breathing, fully cooked female.


      I thought the 6 month break clause might be mandatory.

      I'd appreciate more thoughts about the overflow hole.

        There's no such thing as a mandatory break clause. Whether or not such clause appears depends wholly on the parties.

          Speak to your agent & ask them to put in writing what fees would be charged in the event of this happening....

          Hi, hoping you good people may be able to give me some advice 🙂

          i have a rental property that I am now looking to sell. I am interested in selling to my tenants and have been looking at my contract with my letting agents to see if there are any consequences of this.

          The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

          With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

          Almost anything beats working for a living.

          Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.

          Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

          Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
