    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.

              Much like your tenants then

              It depends on your target market and the area you’re buying in. If you want to purchase in a city centre because that would suit your target market than generally means flats which are leasehold in England and Wales....

              Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

              There is no defence against a correctly issued Section 21 so providing all the paper work is in order should this go to court your landlord will be granted a possession order. You can use the link below to find out if any Section 21 is valid.

              Hi just after some advice. I have been renting the property for 4.5 years, 4 of those with a fantastic landlord and 6 months with a new landlord. When he took over he immediately increased the rent by 25%, annoying but perfectly within his rights. The main issue is maintainance and repairs. I cant report...

              Reading between the lines, you had a good deal with the last LL in return for not doing too much to the property and the new LL has bought the property with a view to making more money than the last LL. The new LL may well be planning to evict you, do the property up & relet at a higher rent and...

              Next door property is being rented out and had the roof redone. Mine got damaged in the process.
              I'd like to contact the landlord/owner of the property next door to let him know and get his roofers back but I don't have his contact details.
              He's British but lives abroad. The phone number...

              I do think its tough that the cost of the NHS & Social Care is being shovelled onto the young, when those who are closer to needing care may pay nothing at all. The cost is huge and we need to spread it amongst as many people as possible.

              On the other hand if the Govt stopped wasting...

              Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

              (Minor point: I believe the rate will be 1.25%, not 1.5%.)

              My understanding is that there will be an equivalent rise in the tax rate for income from dividends, so shareholders will pay (and it will also avoid the tricks people who own their own companies use to masquerade income as dividends)....
