    What is the best way to have a good LL Tenant relationship

    Hi to all Members


    Many of us have been let down by either bad Tenants or bad LLs.
    list down the best way to have a good relationship
    Am I right to say that it really takes two to Tango or is it always the other side who is wrong?

    Landlords could:

    Be considerate and efficient when maintenance problems arise.

    Ensure the property is presented in good order from the start.

    Use an agent that has a good reputation in the area.

    Tenants could:

    Ensure that all problems are reported in good time e.g. minor leaks don't turn into falling down ceilings. (I know that obviously if they aren't there it's impossible).

    Ensure that rent is paid on time, every time.

    Keep the property in good order (easily maintained if the property was in good order to begin with!)

    Overall, I think it comes down to:

    Tenants are entitled to live in peace at the property.

    Landlords expect that the rent will be paid on time, in full

    Tenants expect to live in a well maintained property.

    Landlords should expect fair wear and tear in a property.

    Landlords should realise that properties will require repairs and that it's not always the tenants fault if something breaks!

    That's just my opinions though

      Would like to add: Tenants should realise that it is not always the LANDLORDS fault if something breaks, and they should realise that it takes time to arrange these repairs.

          And good communication. no-one can resolve issues if they don't communicate - even when things seem to have gone wrong

            Tenants should pay their rent in full and on time. (None of this HB paid in arrears nonsense.)

            Tenants should treat the landlord's property as carefully as they would their own.

            Tenants should report problems to the landlord as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

            Landlords should let their property in tip top condition.

            Landlords should respond to problems as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

            Landlords should return tenants' deposits in full and not quibble about unavoidable wear and tear.

            Everyone should know, understand and respect everyone else's rights.

              Hardly the Tenants fault if this is the way HB is paid by the Local Authority.

                Regardless of who is at fault paying rent late does not create a good landlord tenant relationship.

                  With respect, if the LL knows at the time of creating the tenancy that the tenant is claiming HB then he knows and therefore, by creating the tenancy accepts it's going to be paid in arrears.

                  If he doesn't want to accept that the rent is paid in arrears then he shouldn't create a tenancy with HB claimants.

                    It's down to the nature of the landlord and the tenant

                    A good landlord - tenant relationship starts with the nature of the landlord and the tenant. If you have a landlord who hates and despises his tenants (and in my experience quite a few do maybe because of bad experiences), that is not a good start. And there are tenants out there with an unpleasant nature. I will not take tenants who appear to be unpleasant, impolite, aggressive, over-demanding, prickly, miserable etc. etc. Why make being a landlord a hassle?

                    I can't think of any tenant I've had a bad relationship with - out of many hundreds. Of course, there have been a few disagreements over the years but they've been amicable. That comes from me being a decent landlord and from choosing decent tenants.
                    Your home is wide open to burglars unless you put in place a full range of effective home security measures.

                      It is not clear yet what is going to happen with evictions. The ban may be extended till the end of the year. It is becoming almost impossible to evict a tenant. The government will make a decision shortly....

                      Hi

                      My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
                      I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

                      Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

                      I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

                      I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

                      I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

                      It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

                      I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...
