  • Tv documentary series offering help to people who hoard

    this is a bit of a different one - but our aim is to help people and so I hope my post will be taken in the spirit its intended.

    I am currently working on a TV programme which aims to help people who either hoard or are over keen collectors. We are looking for people where their hoarding has started to take over their lives and homes and they would benefit from some expert help.

    This documentary series takes a therapeutic approach to hoarding, whilst offering a unique and tailored treatment programme, combined with a specialist de-cluttering service. It’s very positive and will show how hoarding affects lives, whilst exploring this often misunderstood condition and helping to de-clutter at the same time.

    If this is you or you know someone who hoards, please get in touch.

    Please post this post in residential lettings as well if not already done so. Replies should be mostly helpful
    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.

      There is an article about hoarders and the Court of Protection's involvement in Brethertons latest newsletter here:

        I think you will find that many hoarders ,do not realise that they hoard and are unlikely to respond to your post. The worst case scenario's often have experienced a severe truama in their life.

          Actually saving money in a bank account is a form of 'hoarding' and most people seemed to have been 'cured' of this particular form. Even the Labour Party cleaned out most accounts and all that valueless gold they were hoarding, whilst putting the nation in hock through PFI.

            That sounds brilliant. When you finish with it can you send me a copy on DVD?

            I collect DVDs.

                • When do tenants' requests go too far?
                  Suzy76
                  Tenants moved in at the beginning of the year and have issued a stream of requests/demands since then, the main ones being

                  - After signing the contract but before moving in, requesting that I change the wallpaper in one room as they decided they didn't like the colour

                  If you trust the tenant I would allow them to decorate upon approval. To agreed specifications and at THEIR EXPENSE. This improves the property and keeps them happy. I have had this happen, new paint colour in lounge. More difficult in your case with a new tenant so I would have said wait and see....then...

                  My partner and I have recently moved into a private let with our 7 month old son.
                  now the flat was in a right state when we moved in - bathroom hadn't been cleaned, kitchen was a mess, oven absolutely caked in grease from the previous tenant (it still is, I refuse to clean it so I'm just not...

                  Wannadonnadoodahl - a few of the issues were noticeable when we moved in, however the landlord reassured us they would be dealt with within a week or two, its now been 6 weeks

                  Not sure if you have a gas cooker or not. Either way, please check that you have a valid Gas Safe certificate. You do not mention the boiler but given the other issues, I hope this is safe for you.

                  A friend of mine (LL) rents his property through an agent and has asked them to get the tenant out as he's coming back to live in it. The agent served a S21 notice which is due to expire soon (we'll check, but for the purposes of this post assume that everything has been served correctly and the notice...

                  The tenant may be 'morally' in the wrong, but is legally in the right. They have no outright legal obligation to leave at the end of the tenancy agreement, which can only be truly ended by the court. In essence, the court are the 'adjudicators' of the contract and decide whether to enforce it or not....

                  The current tenancy continues until the landlord has recovered possession (or the tenant serves notice) so there's no danger of a new one coming into being accidentally .

                  The tenant is awarded costs if they lose, which is pretty standard in legal cases. If the landlord loses the case, the...

                  Ok, thanks. This seems to imply that the tenant is in the wrong by not leaving then.

                  The notice might as well say, "you don't have to leave when this notice expires, but you'll have a large legal bill if you don't."



                  Thanks again.

                  The landlord can carry on accepting rent, which is due until the tenancy ends.

                  The tenant has every right to stay, as the landlord's notice doesn't actually end the tenancy. To bring the tenancy to an end, the landlord will need to go to court. If the landlord is successful, the tenant...
