    Any referral to the RAC has to be before the increase takes effect - not within 28 days. I do not know what happens if the referral is late.

    10% increase is probably about right in my opinion.


      Hello again!

      Of course, as expected, she has not paid the £1580 as per the agreement. She paid £1000 and I assume that was by cheque because the funds had not even cleared by 28th November. Considering the trouble I got myself in last time, can I just get some advice on what to do next? I have not yet served her with a section 13. should I text her and say she has defaulted on the agreement and must now leave the property or pay the rest or should I remain silent, say nothing and just go to court. I dont want to do the wrong thing because I just want her out!


        She has breached the very specific instruction ordered by the court. Reapply immediately to have the warrant reinstated.
        I may be a housing professional but my views, thoughts, opinions, advice, criticisms or otherwise on this board are mine and are not representative of my company, colleagues, managers. I am here as an independent human being who simply wants to learn new stuff, share ideas and interact with like minded people.


          I have reapplied to the court and another eviction date has been set for 30th January. She is now
          Playing games and has reported me to the council for having an infestation of rats in the property. The environmental health action
          Said something needs to be done ASAP and to start off with poison. I explained that she shouldn't be in the property anyway but they said rats
          Carry germs etc. I don't want to speak to her in case she says we came to another agreement and I want her out. This may sound like a stupid question but if I order some rat poison and send it to her, will I effectively be recognising her as a legitimate tenant? She's bound to make another application to suspend and I don't want her to use this as an excuse. Please help!!

            by Renterthedragon
            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...

            I've not found any short-cuts, as each company has their own quirks on dealing with this. It usually takes a couple of calls to a customer services person to provide the information, due to GDPR they wont say anything about the exiting T.

            by flyingfreehold
            Does anyone have a shortcut? Right now we seem to have to hang on interminably long on the phone to provide details of leaver readings, put the account back in landlords name and then to provide new tenants' details when the place is re-let. Anyone know of a shortcut? We used to send out letters but...

            I am not sure that it will make her feel any better but I suspect that the children are more of an issue than being a single mum. Friends of mine have been rejected from every family size house they have applied to. They are high earning professionals with decent references and ... two young kids 2...

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...

            This may just be one part of it, as ' ash72' states there are a lot less rental properties now (and it will get worse in the future), rents have sky rocketed and a LL can simply pick and choose the very very best tenant. It has become even more important than ever to get the right tenant, this is due...

            As 'ash72' states you may be angry at the perceived way in which the landlord has treated you but do not mix the two up, If you wish to take on more stress after you have been evicted and may still be looking for a place to live...... which with a CCJ will be all but impossible, go ahead, but i would...

            If you are in flats, with service charges, the buildings insurance for residential Landlords insurance ( the Landlord of the freehold, that insures the building ) The insurance company may well cease immediately the insurance coverage.
