  • blacklist for landlords?

    I have been asked to ask for advice?
    Freeholder of 2flats finds out that leasholder of flat 1 has been renting it out to tenants without permission from Freeholder.
    Freeholder lives upstairs and has got on very well with the tenants over the years.The Freeholder is outraged at the way the Leaseholder treats her tenants and wondered if there was such a thing as an organisation that registers problem LL?

    No, just as there is no reliable register of bad tenants. It would be too open to abuse by malicious parties.

      You might like to look at this http://www.landlordreferencing.co.uk which enables you to register all past tenants good or bad.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        If the leaseholder hasn't obtained the freeholder's consent to sublet, why doesn't the freeholder take action against the leaseholder for the breach?

        Assuming the property is in England/Wales, the freeholder could contact the Tenancy Relations Officer and/or Environmental Health Officer at the local council (depending on the type of ill-treatment the subtenants are experiencing). The council has enforcement powers against private landlords who don't comply with their legal obligations (e.g. to remedy disrepair, not to unlawfully harass a tenant, etc).

          Thankyou good people.
          The freeholder as far as i know has got a solicitor involved because the Leaseholder did not get permission.I will tell the FH about the tenants relations officer,however they didnt do much for me other than tell me to get the police involved.Ill also give her the EHO number.
          Thanks again.

            What exactly are your concerns about this landlord/leaseholder?

              westminster....our concerns- we as tenants are getting our concerns addressed by a solicitor as they are quite complexed ie;suffered harrassment,disrepair,verbal abuse and no deposit back.The LL/LH also treated the previous tenants in the same manner and the ones before.None of them got their deposits back.The FH keeps in contact with us all.
              The FH- their concerns-the LH is renting the flat without saying that part of the garden is upstairs,so all tenants think that they have the whole garden-as we thought.
              Also the LL hasnt paid any maintenance or service charges etc to the FH in 6yrs.So their solicitor will be dealing with that.Also the FH is very unhappy in the disrespectful way that the LL treats the tenants and FH.
              Im not worried about our deposit as it is safe in the Dps and we have evidence to say we left the flat in good order.But the LL gets very nasty and aggressive if she doesnt get her way.She kicks the floor and spits!

                I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out. As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

                I wasn't aware that the identity of council tax payers was a public record. You might be able to get a statement that it wasn't you. without breaching the Data Protection Act.

                JP23
                Why must we continuously renew our deposit with the scheme each time we re-sign our AST i.e. every 12 months?

                Why can the deposit not remain protected throughout the duration of the overall tenant occupation?

                Is our landlord acting in questionable faith by asking us to pay...

                The main problem I have for the charge being passed on is that often times (esp. through agents) the charge is actually considerably more than the protection fee they pay the schemes. It's been used as another way for agents (or landlords) to make money.

                Your still confusing your own council tax liability at your current address with that of the rental property.

                If no-one was registered as living there then you would have been billed as landlord. The fact that you haven't been indicates that they are aware of who was tenant. ASK THEM FOR...

                To be fair lvkn yes the rent covers everything you state, but the 48 pound charge Is your choice and is avoidable.

                You choose to use an insurance based scheme and hold the tenants money collecting interest. How is it fair to force that charge on your tenant each time?

                With...

                i am a landlord and have insurance based deposit protection (I hold the deposit in segregated client account and register it with My Deposits) every time a new contract is drawn up we have to pay £48. If a tenancy is renewed, we pay £48. If someone moves out of one of our multiple tenant...

                I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

                If you have no ongoing contract with the agent and it was "find" only, they have no right to force you into a new AST.

                Depending on the terms of your contract there's nothing to prevent you, if your feeling confident, in renewing the contract yourself and taking over.
