It certainly sounds like he wants to keep my partner here until the building works on the loft conversion starts, but it's all v worrying. The guy downstairs is deranged - 5 hours and counting of him talking to himself and moaning today. We are both so on edge right now and the LL visit tomorrow isn't helping at all.
    So move out! I am struggling to understand what is keeping you there.

      Well that's the plan. Lets hope the LL doesn't take umbridge and get rid of him first before he's found another place.

        It would take the LL ages to evict him. If your partner chose to stay put when the LL's notice period ended (which he is legally entitled to do), the LL would have to apply to a court for a Possession Order, which would take at least 4-6 weeks. So even if the LL did serve him notice, he would have about 3-4 months to find somewhere else.

        My point was that in his shoes, I would be out of that place like a whippet from a gate.

          That's a relief to know. He should be able to find a place by then even if it does come to worst case scenario. I imagine he'll be out by then in any case cos of loft conversion, without the probs with the neighbour. I just wanted clarification that if the worst came to the worst, my partner wouldn't be on the streets in a matter of weeks.

            If this is verbatim, it is atrociously drafted. You don't, for example, receive a break clause. I'm still trying to work out how to interpret the smoking clause. I think this would have to go to court before one could say for certain what it means.

            Hiya, I'm not good at this kind of thing.

            I moved​ ​​into a flat in London two weeks ago with a verbal agreement that the other T would not be smoking indoors, at the viewing. This is a joint contract.

            The contract says: "Smoking inside the property is not permitted...

            I've used openrent too and been happy with the service though it's been a couple of years since I needed a new tenant.

            Based on recommendations on this site we used uPad and we had what we thought was excellent service - sadly they have closed.

            What are the members current recommendations for online letting agents?

            Many thanks

            Don't commit to anything until you have a proper evaluation of "leakages".
            You can negotiate at any point up to exchange of contracts - after that is possible but can be costly.

            As for fraud, yes, don't use email to do anything involving money.

            Hi,

            We have made an offer to a property in London and we are waiting for the mortgage to come through. However, offer has been accepted and process started. We heard the flat has some leakages so we are asking access to view the property with a plumber so he can tell the work that is needed....

            Hi, I am currently going through the process of evicting my tenants in a property via for not paying the rent. I'm in the early stages, and will in due course be serving a s.8 notice, but have a question. The rent is paid by the one of the tenants grandparents monthly and from what I understand, the...

            Is the leak from the flat above? In which case, that would be access to someone else's property. You don't have a right of entry. Or is it a leak from the roof, in which case, it is a shared building costs (so all the neighbours needs to pay for repairs).

            If it is a water pipe leak, it...
