    The support & advice you have given has been wonderful. What an excellent adversary you have been for landlordzone.co.uk
    It was perfectly valid advice to be fair.

    I wanted to second MTG's comments about ID. I always get my tenants to bring a photocopy of their ID and the ID itself when I check them in. I then check the photocopy against the original, hand the original back and keep the copy on file. 1 year after the T leaves the property, I delete the copy I hold.

    Just a sensible precaution really. I have this old fashioned idea that I like to know who exactly is living in my property.

      Thanks for adding clarity. I agree with your comments & that of LesleyAnne regarding witnessing that you pointed out. However, I would recommend that some of the regulars lay off the vino instead of trying to label every new person a troll because whilst under the influence they do not understand what the concern or issue is.

      I have now sought proper advice/thoughts from helpful sources external of landlordzone to help me with the current situation today.

      However, I will keep your comments in mind for the future when the need arisies again. Thanks

        I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

        Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

        House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
        Garden was left in a mess...

        That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

        Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
        Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

        by Beeble
        We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

        Tenant moved in...

        by Lawcruncher
        The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

        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...

        Lawcruncher,

        Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...

        Totally agree, the classic - still the best. They sound like a nightmare and i would be looking to get rid as soon as i could whilst we still have S21, removing kitchen cupboards !!! In a 2 bed flat...... why the hell would you remove part of a fitted kitchen, what are you going to do with the space....
