    How much notice from L to view my last place?

    Hey,

    My contract is still being paid until the end of this month but I want to know how much notice my landlord has to give to me for people to come and view?

    Its actually just a room in a shared house (2 actually).

    I can't get to the house because the weather is really bad in northern ireland and just got a call from the agent.

    Can someone tell me how much notice I need so I can try get to the house to get things moved out and tidy the place up in general?

    Thanks

    Are the premises:
    a. in Northern Ireland; and
    b. currently standing vacant (= no occupiers)?

      hey jeffrey,

      yes Im in NI.
      I am still renting the place and still meant to be staying in there (I still have my things there but not living there simply because there is no heat, which is partly why I moved).
      The other room is my girlfriends (She rents separate) and she is in czech republic until Friday, her things are all in her room.

        Please do us all a big favour: remember to state (whenever you post re a property in NI) that NI law applies.
        That may well save members telling you, unawares, what the law is in E&W!

          I can only tell you the position in England/Wales. Notice provisions for LL access are usually in the tenancy contract; if not, then he should give 'reasonable' notice, e.g. 24 hours not 10 minutes. T has no obligation to keep the rental property tidy.

          But it could be completely different under the law in N. Ireland.

            Thanks

            I thought by saying about the weather in NI people would know I meant the property is in N.I. but I guess I could also just be saying I'm in NI.

            I just want to make sure the place is ok so I get my deposit back, for me and my girlfriend. I don't want her losing hers as I have to do both rooms while shes away.

            • Section 8 on tenants without deposit
              by dereham
              Hello all

              Is it difficult to evict a tenant (section 8 rent arrears) if they didn't pay a deposit when they moved in?
              It might be a silly question - I know it's a massive issue not to have protected a deposit when it comes to eviction but I can't find any info about cases where there...

              So is it best to serve section 21 together with a section 13? As that is the only way to ensure I can get the rent increase?...

              Hi,

              I am a landlord and the current tenancy is coming close to the end of the AST fixed period. I am unsure what the process is when it comes to things like increasing rent and section 21 etc. I am using an agent for tenant find and they do the negotiating with the tenants (and of course...

              I wish to gain a court order for eviction, can that be sought in advance of the approaching Notices end date, or does he need to become a 'hold over' tresspasser before I can apply.
              Apologies that is a typo, if it wasn't for the infernal 'Moderator Approval' system being so pedantic I would have...

              Hi,

              A Lodger (Excluded Occupier) needs to be excluded as his Notice Period has expired (one calendar month), and he refuses to leave

              I understand Police will not get involved to remove him, even though he is tresspassing, understand they view this as Civil not criminal....

              You can charge them any rent that they agree to pay, otherwise, your only option to unilaterally increase the rent is a s13 notice.

              The s13 notice includes an appeals process, so you can't simply "evict" someone by charging a ludicrous rent....

              The flat's lease will likely prohibit lettings of more than a year (or class it as an assignment)

              by meehr
              For a variety of reasons a family member is considering renting out their leasehold flat to a cousin for a long period of time - to provide security they want to grant a very long AST, like 8 years (till kids have left home basically). They both want to do this for security and avoidance of argument...

              But what happens if tenants don't leave (when it was originally agreed they would), can I charge them the higher rent? Because a section 13 would not have been served (given it was agreed they would leave at the end of the fixed term) would I still be allowed to charge them a higher rent?

              Tenants often don't have the tools to manage large foliage or dispose of it. If I could do it without too much effort I probably would or offer to arrange for it to be done & pass on the cost. It is definitely their responsibility.
