    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.

    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.

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 be grateful you don't own the place... a friend of mine is in exactly the same position as you with a neighbour who is clearly deranged - despite my friend doing absolutely every legal route possible (the guy now has ASBOs coming out of his ears) the problem and harrassment goes on and on and there's not a damned thing she can do about it. She can't move of course, as she'd need to declare the whole problem and no buyer would come near.

    There is no other property. Only this. So it looks like my partner has to start looking for somewhere else, whichever way it goes.

    From #1
    The problems continued until my partner involved environmental health. They wrote the neighbour, and he quietened down for a while.

    Speed reading again Jeffrey?

    OPs partner could ask his LL if he has a more suitable property available to rent, subject to close inspection, of course, then everyone should be satisfied.

    As far as I'm aware, the LL is aware that there have been probs with previous tenants and the neighbour. He had to install soundproofing material in the bedroom, because previous tenants could hear neighbour's radio all through the night.

    In the end, it is believed the neighbour did forced the tenants to move with his behaviour - which is what is likely to happen with my partner.

    LLs are ppl just like everyone else. Who is to know what someone will do. If he really wants the building work done and 'im downstairs tells him that complaints have gone in about him etc then LL may want to evict your OH to secure his permission for building works.

    However if LL arrives and during normal conversation the man downstairs starts banging the ceiling because you're talking too loud then he's shown himself up as being unreasonable and LL may well think that any T that lives there will encounter problems with him.

    Sounds dreadful. Why does you partner not just give notice and move as soon as the term is up?

    Sure - it is not his fault and no one should have to put up with this. But if your health is suffering as a result then surely this is a battle that is simply not worth fighting!

    It is a period tenancy. The 6 month fixed term ended in December, so it's rolling month to month. Part of me wonders if its worth contacting the LL before he turns up tomorrow to tell him exactly what has been going on, then at least then my partner has a good chance of defending himself.

    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...

    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....

    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...
