    Cripes! What happens when I'm dead and my beneficiaries have spent it all! (Rest assured there won't be any left for my "beneficiaries", tee hee!)

      It's twelve years in public sector cases where you have a Possession Order

      But after six years you have to seek leave of the judge execute the warrant

        Ok....i'll have a go

        1. Yes

        2. Yes

        3. Tenant must write to landlord giving a timescale for repairs to be done by, and inform the LL if they are not done by then he will obtain three quotes and arrange for repairs, deducting the cost from his rent.

        4. All 6 - they are all on the tenancy agreement and jointly and severally responsible.

        5. You are (whoever shovelled)
        6. No

        7. Guarantor must rent for as long as the tenancy continues, but is not responsible for dilapidations as this comes out of the deposit.

        8. False.

        Fingers crossed!!

          A debt becomes statute barred under the Limitations Act 1980 if you don't take action to collect it for 6 years

            Paul, if you try something misguided like attempting to drop down dead in order to limit your tax liability no doubt they would dig up your corpse, drag it round at the end of a rope and then put your head on a spike at the Tower of London.

            Although didn't Hotblack Desiato spend a year dead for tax purposes?!

            If you had an estate they would no doubt try and get their hands on it if you owed them anything!

              I'll have a bash!

              1) No, didn't take possession of property.
              2) Can move out early but will be liable for rent until end of notice period or if landlord finds new tenants quickly, until new tenants move in.
              3) Give notice to Landlord that repair be made within certain time period, if not done then tenant gets quotes, has repaired and deducts cost from rent.
              4) First 4 named on tenancy agreement. 5 and 6 are tenants in common and responsible only for their portion of rent.
              5) I am.
              6) Depends what has been written into contract. If admin cost plus vat written in, then possibly, although might be deemed unfair term.
              7) Liable till end of tenancy (as ended by notice from tenant or landlord) anything after is mesnes profits and not specified as guarantor's responsibility so not recoverable from him/her. Dilapidations not specified as guarantor's responsibility so can't recover from him/her.
              8) True if meaning meaning action from landlord. If tenant surrenders tenancy before end of term and landlord accepts, possession is also guaranteed. Ditto for death of tenant.

                I would like to change my answer to Q8 to True as serving s8 for rent arrears doesn't guarantee possession if tenant brings the rent due to less than 2 months arrears before going to court.

                  I never did hear if Hotblack's dead year worked, Marvin would know.

                    There I am, thinking, who's Hotblack Desiato? Google provided the answer although I'm none the wiser!

                        And here's me thinking Paul knew the answer to life, the universe and everything. Don't look it up Paul, its 9 x 6 = 42. Yes, you do have to know the book, film, radio etc to understand that one.

                          How many roads must a man walk down?

                          That's right, 42!

                          But now we've got the answer, what's the actual question?!!

                          I always saw Paul as Deepthought!

                            No, I know nuffink! Trivia is not my main diet, except for.....pop quizzes up to about 1975 and I could quote nearly every FA cup final since the last war, and when in my teens (a very long time ago!) could tell you every football league ground; sign of a misspent youth eh? Now I'm so comtemptuous about football and the "Rooneys" of this world. I do have a soft spot for one of the Premier teams and it's definitely not the team who just finished third!
