    3 year lease -manaegment co. gone into liquidation.

    Hello forum members

    I am new to this forum,this is my first post.

    I entered into a 3 year lease with a management co.in 2007,to provide emergency and short term housing to council tenants with a garentued rent.The management co. was on the council's approved list at this time.The property was repaired/redecorated to the councils strict guildlines.In 2010 we started getting problems with our rent(late and having to chase) ,just before our 3 years was up the management co. went into liquidation.The council arranged with another approved management co. to transfer all the landlord to this other co.(lower rent).At this time our 3 year lease had come to a end and we just wanted our property back.We asked the council for the property back,they said they could not re-house the tenants at short notice.We managed to divert the rent to ourselves.

    In the mean time the tenant was not looking after the property.A new kitchen was fitted in 2009 and a new laminate floor.We managed to get the property back (after 7 months),but the tenants have damaged the property.The council said they can not do anything as they do not have any contractual obligation to us? .They will not pay any compensation for damages.My understanding is that this became a non secure tenanacy?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and any comments/thougths would be apperiated.

    Needs to be posted in residential lettings I am afraid.

    "We dont do nufink under 21 years here!"
    Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

      I can only echo the above comments, you have done what you need too, although to be honest i would have taken this action years ago, if you have never liked all the smoke then why put up with it for so long...... I would be very unhappy about all the smoke but i would seriously consider selling both...

      Sympathy! Don't forget to advise tenants to pursue the agent's complaints process and when that process fails - (I can foresee the future) - to use the lettings agent redress scheme. See here advice from Mssrs Shelter..

      Yes I agree with the above. Make sure you have complied with statutory requirements to ensure any s21 is valid.

      You have been provided the advice by your legal council, if you want them out seek possession of the property (do it before S21 is removed), you need to now moved to the next stage which is put in an application for possession, then finally bailiffs. I would also stop complaining to the T's it is harassment,...

      She wouldn't be able to rent it straight away anyway if you carry out referencing, (which you should), as this takes a few days. I get people to complete an application form too. A lot of prospective tenants are flaky on OR. Some promise to call you and you never hear from them again, even if you try...

      "If the new tenancy is for a lesser rent, the tenant will remain liable to pay an amount equal to the difference between the original rent and new lower rental figure up to the end of the original fixed term."

      I read in a similar post that such a clause might not be enforceab...

      Good afternoon and thanks for taking the time to read my post.

      Back in October, I found replacement tenants to take over my joint AST (without break clause) which would have run until this July. Because of Covid, I could only find someone who was willing to pay about £400 pcm less than...
