    Inventory Question

    My letting agent says I signed an inventory on the morning I moved into my old property, in fact even before I'd seen the property. They said they would have got me to sign it when I signed the agreement and I paid the rest of the deposit. But is this inventory legal as I hadn't even seen the flat?

    that's rubbish

    you move in and then get the inventory which shows the state of the place and if you do not agree to anything on it you then highlight the entry and they have to reply to you and agree or disagree. the day you move out same thing would happen they'd double check the state of the place and compare it to the original. any damage will be your responsability and then they have to give you I believe at least 2 quotes before they can charge you then you would get your deposit back.

      Ask the letting agent to send you a copy of the inventory and ask when you actually signed it.

      If you signed an inventory they should have it and if they write that you signed it before you moved in it will probably invalidate it.

        Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

        I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

        I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

        Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

        This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

        But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

        Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

        Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

        To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
