    Have I paid right?

    Hi,

    I pay £550 per calender month.

    My LL agreed to give me a 2 week rent reduction for inconvenience. The month this was due for reduction was during november.

    Can someone tell me how much rent I should have paid???

    Ill let you know what i paid when you give me the answer

    Thankyou

          I think this was a tongue-in-cheek reply as you can work it out for yourself. You've got 10 fingers and 10 toes should you need them. Are you really that dim? It's so easy I am laughing.
          The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

            £550 x 12 months divided 52 weeks x 2 weeks = £ 253.84

            So 550-253.84 = £ 296.16 rent to be paid. ( Not 253 )

            Question was how much monthly rent do I have to pay, and not how
            much is 2 weeks rent.

            Typical exam question, !

              £550 - £(((550 x 12) / 365) x 14)

              £550 - £253.15 = £296.85

                Ha ha, when I was a kid I was once encouraged to be an accountant, good job I didn't take it up as the country would have been bankrupt a lot earlier.

                    So how much did you pay?, and how much did you think you should have paid?

                      How i worked it out

                      Well I did it like this (rounded).....

                      550 x 12 = 6600 Annual rate after 12 payments

                      6600/365 = 18.08 Daily rate.

                      18.08 x 30 = 542.3 (30 days in November)

                      18.08 x 14 = 253.12 (the two weeks i get free)

                      542.3 - 253.12 = 289.18 Which is how much i paid.

                        No your method is fundamentally wrong, in the sense that it is based around you paying a different amount for the calendar month of November (£542.30) than the actual amount (£550.00).

                          You'd be better off deciding the inconvenience was in February, then on the basis of your logic that would be only £253:15 .. ((550*12*14)/365).,...

                              What makes you think they know how to calculate the right amount?

                              The good news is that you were only out by £7.

                                I can only echo the above comments, you have done what you need too, although to be honest i would have taken this action years ago, if you have never liked all the smoke then why put up with it for so long......

                                Sympathy! Don't forget to advise tenants to pursue the agent's complaints process and when that process fails - (I can foresee the future) - to use the lettings agent redress scheme. See here advice from Mssrs Shelter..

                                Yes I agree with the above. Make sure you have complied with statutory requirements to ensure any s21 is valid.

                                You have been provided the advice by your legal council, if you want them out seek possession of the property (do it before S21 is removed), you need to now moved to the next stage which is put in an application for possession, then finally bailiffs. I would also stop complaining to the T's it is harassment,...

                                She wouldn't be able to rent it straight away anyway if you carry out referencing, (which you should), as this takes a few days. I get people to complete an application form too. A lot of prospective tenants are flaky on OR. Some promise to call you and you never hear from them again, even if you try...

                                Hi, I am just a new landlord who is renting our first property using openrent. I do need some advice from you.

                                We had a very lovely lady to view our house. She looked love our property and wanted to take it straight away. Because she came alone (her partner was working), my husband advised...

                                Back in October, I found replacement tenants to take over my joint AST (without break clause) which would have run until this July. Because of Covid, I could only find someone who was willing to pay about £400 pcm less than...
