    Thanks Lawcruncher - I really appreciate your advice.

    As mentioned the tenancy check out was conducted yesterday as agreed with the tenant but without him present. I have a copy of the inventory and photographs - Would I need to have a further check out completed post 28th August or do you think that this would stand given that it was the last time (if it is) that he was at the property?

    I'm not sure if Im asking this question in a clear enough way - so forgive me if I'm not making sense!


      I do not think that a further check out is needed if the tenant really has left.

        I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .

        Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

        Sounds like the power has gone to their heads Can't you, or rather the tenants, have some fun? Well placed boobie traps or a fierce dog perhaps?

        Just had letter from London Borough of ****** saying they will be inspecting my house at some time in the next 28 days to ensure licence compliance. No further notice will be given and tenants are expected to grant access to all areas, windows to be left open for air supply, and doors all left open...

        You would be creating an issue for yourself, you want to be able to evict a T (for whatever reason) which do not have the same rights as a T on an AST, the problem would be that you would have 2 T's who would have evidence etc, that you never lived there while they lived there...... When someone is...

        It crosses my mind that if you install something that doesn't comply with regulations - eg a rope flush against the wall - then you might be more likely to be opening yourself up to a claim than if you'd left the stairs as they were when you bought the house....

        A tenant living in a property for the last three years has emailed saying there's no handrail on the stairs and they this is is dangerous. They also say there is a large step down to the shed.

        Am I obliged to provide one? The stairs themselves are quite narrow and...

        If I decided to keep one room for myself as my man and only residence and just rented the bedrooms out on a bedroon only basis , would I be able to do that ?
        I have checked my boroughs HMO rules and they only apply if there are at least five people from two different families living at the...

        When you assume, you make an ass out of u and me .

        My tenants have been there eight years and are as pissed off with the new licensing regime as I am. It's a routine inspection, all the boroughs do it but it's the demanding entitled attitude that annoys more.
        The council don't need...

        I had a chat with my tenants and they all agreed to the rise (it was not too much), i backed it up with an email and that was it, the DD was amended and off we go..... easy enough, if you have normal tenants who listen to common sense, if not.........
