        Are you looking for something specific? The only "lists" are the housing acts and related legal acts, which are very heavy reading!

          I seem to recall some previous posts stating that it was illegal to do BUILDING works on a Sunday so it may be worth searching the form for that.

          The best way to find out for sure is ask your Local Authority or Environmental Health Department as I understand it's them that deal with those kind of breaches in regulations.

            Ahh that would make more sense must admit I would be surprised if this were the case however. There are certainly regulations on what time of night and morning works should go on to and commence, respectively.

              and I'm pretty certain those regs cover Sundays certainly, but not sure about Saturdays. Just don't know what the regulations are

              I suppose it also depends on what "building" works the Op wants to do ?

                I don't think so. But it's often a condition of planning permission that works in residential areas are not carried out at weekends, so (a) that might confuse people into thinking it's actually illegal and (b) if it was illegal per se, there would be no reason to insert this condition into planning permissions.

                That said, there might be local bye-laws to this effect in Lambeth, who knows? Furthemore, if you did undertake extensive, noisy, and prolonged works at a weekend to the objection of neighbours, it would be very likely that ultimately you'd get jumped on by the local environmental health dept.

                    Saturday 8/9 till 1pm - Sundays as far as i know "no works are to be carried out" however if a council wants to work - they can (strange huh) If your tenants want to complain about working on a Sunday to Environmental Health they will be unable to untill 6 or so PM as nobody will be on the switchboard by that time - the damage is done!

                      I have today been told that I am getting evicted and that there is a hearing next week.
                      But I haven't received any Court papers, no notice to quit, no section 8, or section 21.
                      I don't even know how this is possible as I thought there was a ban on eviction hearings.

                      If there's mould in the property it almost has to come from condensation inside.
                      The (alkaline) lime in the plaster and the acid in the mortar mean that water coming from outside doesn't usually allow mould to develop.

                      Mould forms when water that condenses on the surface is left there....

                      I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?


                      BACKGROUND
                      A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.


                      The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

                      I don't have any idea how this is meant to work.
                      But, the only people who really matter are the landlord and the tenant.

                      The agent works for the landlord, and if they've found themselves in a conflict if interest, have to resolve it in favour of the landlord.
                      They'll never accept...

                      I have received a s21 notice to leave at the end of August (this includes the current extended 3 month covid19 period). I wish to leave the property early as I have now found another property to rent but this can only be ‘held’ for a period of 2 months by the letting agent. I have asked if I can...

                      Yes, the courts are still just about functioning, so a money claim is still possible, if unlikely.
                      If a landlord came here seeking advice about a tenant in arrears, I would suggest a money claim rather than a possession claim, in the first instance.

                      However, tou should still receive...

                      Yes if they have claimed for it, but it depends on what basis the possession proceedings are made. I don't think there was sarcasm, just a character. Artfuls comment re benefits is referring to himself, and he gave good advice re shelter. And some landlords are bad we know that, but I'm not one of the...

                      Jon66: there were sarcastic responses from a person further up. It's there to read.
                      I did contact CAB and my local council. I told my landlord in 2014 there was a leak, nothing done. Same again in 2017, 2018. Told in 2019 bath tub was dangerous, don't bath, nothing done by LL. At that same...
