    In case this relates to housing benefit, setting up the company is fine, but anonymity is not, relationships must be disclosed by the applicant.

    Thankyou very much for your responses. It seems then that it is an option and the returns to companies house and annual accounts are not an issue for me as it'll just be the one property.

    As MJB says, you would then be running a limited company and have to submit returns, audited accounts (unless you qualified for exemption) etc etc.

    If you want to stay anonymous because of housing benefit, then remember your name is available at companies house (so are probably available to the council), and that it is perfectly possible to rent to a family member without contravening the contrived lettings rule.

    Yes you can do this. Its beneficial in many ways, although mostly if you buy numerous properties. The biggest factor is obviously taxation. I think broadly speaking if its just a single property there arent huge considerations either way - depending on current rates of tax paid etc.

    Setting up company to buy a property and then rent it

    I am considering buying a small property in order to rent to a family member. I want to remain anonymous as far as possible and wondered if it is possible to purchase the property in the name of a limited company and carry out the rental transactions in the name of that company. Anyone done this?

    You might find a sympathetic judge.

    But you have to consider what you're trying to argue.
    If you'd been in a car crash and were in hospital and unable to work, that wouldn't be a defence to not paying rent owed.
    You're trying to argue that it was the landlord driving the car...

    I wondered if anyone can tell me if it is possible to counter claim for damage, harassment, poss landlord breach in contract and emotional distress in a section 8 eviction.
    so basically I’ve read online that i can claim for compensation which will go towards reducing my rent arrears but my solicitor...

    Thankyou for your replies.

    Taking on board your comments but interested in how you think it is two separate things….?
    One action was the direct cause of another land if I’m in court disputing amount of money owed isn’t that the time to be arguing my case? Not to be receiving...

    Certainly.



    In my view, both sides must be free to choose. If you take away the right of businesses (which LLs are, whether they consider themselves to be or not) to assess risk and respond accordingly they will not be in business for very long. And if the LLs disappear then...

    A friend of mine who is a single parent with three children is trying to find a house to rent. She has three children and recieves UC mainly to help with childcare costs, but despite viewing several houses and showing interest and showing she is more than able to pay rent, she has been turned down and...

    The UC is too help pay for childcare, so she can work ( and does work full time), therefore pay rent/bills etc etc. It just feels like some landlords make sweeping judgements as soon as they hear single parent in receipt of UC

    You don't need to get the details from the Land Registry. The tenant can request, in writing, the letting agency to supply the landlord's contact details citing the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. I'm not sure how wise that would be if it could potentially hack off the landlord although I do wonder...

    I’m a tenant facing a sharp rent increase and in need of advice.

    I have a good landlord who agreed to a rent reduction last year because of ongoing maintenance issues and lower market values. However, I can only communicate with them through an agency.

    Approaching the end...

    Dct If the reason that your friend can't get a tenancy is because she's a woman or because she has children, it is probably discriminatory.
    Which is probably a reason no one is going to explain why she's being turned down.

    Being on benefits isn't going to help either - because people...

    I can't tell you how hacked off I would be if one of my tenants did that.

    The agreement has a price variation clause in it, the landlord and tenant have both agreed to it,...
