    Mesne profits

    can someone please explain what it actually means
    The house was repossessed on 24 oct. the Tenant is waiting for eviction date by the bailiff any day now. his housing benefit was suspended
    I quote:
    HB is issued to creditors in the form of Mesnes profits. and they want a clarification on who should receive it TT LL or Bank??????????

    Thanks

    Mesne profits is the receipt of payment for a service which is provided under duress. In this example, the receipt of rent from a tenant whom you are in the process of evicting.

      Thanks

      Does that mean that the rent is still payable to LL up to eviction day? cos HB people were not clear all they said was they need to know who is entitled to that money then they would pay it.

        Rent is payable up until the day a tenant actually leaves a property - I think this was your question!

          ok thanks cos when i called the HB they were not sure whether the Ll has any right to rent as the House is in the hand of the bank. they were not sure though.

            No .. I think the question was : who is it payable to ? the ex-LL ; or the Bank, who have now repossessed the property - that's my understanding anyway.

                Your contract - ie your AST is with the landlord as it has been signed by him or on his behalf by his agent. The rent due is thus owed to the landlord, against whom you are going to take action because of his breach of this contract. This is because bank are repossessing the property and evicting you. If the bank, or anybody else writes to you demanding that you pay them your rent instead, they are creating a new AST which gives you a further six months security of tenure, so you won't be hearing from anybody except your current landlord,his representatives agents or the administrators of his bankruptcy!

                P.P.

                    As a stupid landlord I take grave exception to your slur, Sir!

                    My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

                    Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

                    Then you need to go the route I said. Unless there is a lease which specifically defines the demise of Flat X that includes the shed(s) there is no reason at all to explicitly exclude anything....

                    As it's UC then as a landlord you need to submit a form UC47 to apply to the DWP for a 'Managed Payments to Landlord', which can include an amount for arrears.
                    However any repayment of arrears granted will be on a 'pay back at so much a month' basis.

                    UC47's can now be submitted online....

                    Well, partly, but mainly I'm considering whether the sheds would have to be explicitly excluded from the tenancy in the AST. It's a question of what would be considered the default position in law....

                    Interesting. I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Nonetheless, if the deeds stipulate that the sheds are part of the flat, rather than communal, surely that's quite a different matter....

                    I believe the OP is coming from the position of:
                    • The LL has granted us the right, beyond the tenancy agreement, to use two sheds.
                    • Would the law consider that having granted that use, the LL cannot unilaterally withdraw the use of those sheds?
                    ...
