    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.

              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...
