    Council tenancy

    Recently changed employment contract from 'Resident Warden' in Local authority Housing scheme to 'mobile Support'. Still occupy tied accomodation and have been offered tenancy of such. Tenancy agreement not yet signed due to LA slowness, but rent accruing from date of job change. Do I have to pay the rent retrospectively as I know the tenancy date cannot be backdated. As I already occupy the premises, will that make a difference?

    Are you paying rent at present (or, if not, are the Council deducting anything by way of 'rent')?

        I suppose that much depends on what the Council and you agree.
        But, provisionally, your new role means that you have a new status at the premises; so the new rent would, I think, begin from when you changed jobs (even though the new Letting Agreement is not yet in operation).

            I don’t think you’ll get the property back by October either. The tenant is angling for social housing and the council will advise her to hand in until bailiffs physically removed her from the property. Insurance companies and solicitors can’t make the process go any faster. A solicitor might...

Tenant got pregnant but has always paid her half, if sometimes late. Now they have a 1 yr old baby boy. This month she has paid 60% but the rest...

            Properly insulated properties also help to keep the air cool inside during summer. Much in the same way a Thermos flask can keep its contents either hot or cold.

            If you had a well insulated home then you wouldn’t need larger radiators to use with heat pumps. Once you reached the desired...

            Looking at the news today (similar to yesterday and the day before), they are talking about combined energy bills of 4-5k a year...... by April 2023. There are many properties up north where the combined rental per annum is between 6-7k....... that is insane.

            Could we have a situation...

            I really can't see the new PM (who ever that is) is going to reach into their pockets to then give out more money, If they do I think it's going to be like the winter payment, only selected people will be eligible, and guess what LL's will not be one of them.

            What other countries are doing...

            I am trying to work out the best way to recoup some of the increase in the cost of the gas given that we can only put up the rent once a year but the cost is going to be increased in October and probably every 3 months.

            It's not possible to forsee how much prices will rise or what help...

            I think the govt will step in of sorts but they cannot cover the increase in the rates for the whole population and industry !! Not a chance, i agree we do not know how much, but we have a really good idea that it will be massive. If you do not work this out correctly you will be taking a lot more than...

            I doubt very much you will get the house back by October, the tenant has been told the usual by the local authority and will put up a fight, so do not count on your plans going....... to plan. In terms of the guarantor, its in the lap of the gods, if all tickity boo, then great but any flaws at all...

            The S21 required my tenant to leave by 18 April but she didn't so then had to apply to the court for an accelerated possession order. She filed no defence so I could apply for the possession order which I received at the end of July for her to leave 10 August. She hasn't so I have applied for the...

            One of my London HMO tenant's lodgers was kicked out by my tenant recently. She complained to me, so I suggested she move to Reading and could have one of my flats to herself for a similar payment. Not interested.
