    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.

      Hi, hoping you good people may be able to give me some advice 🙂

      i have a rental property that I am now looking to sell. I am interested in selling to my tenants and have been looking at my contract with my letting agents to see if there are any consequences of this.

      The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

      With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

      Almost anything beats working for a living.

      Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.

      Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

      Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
