    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.

                      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.

                                Nice idea on using a MIFI as it gets around the whole issue of needing access to their wifi in the first place to connect to the smart devices. But then some tenants may also want to get the alerts, which is fine as long as the MIFI device is locked down and can't be used to access the internet for...

                                Hi all, sorry if this has been asked before. I'm renovating following a huge fire in the property and I'm additionally going to install Google Nest Smoke alarms to send a remote alert to my phone as well as ring an alarm for any occupants. Unfortunately this needs wifi which is the responsibility...

                                Given your LL appears to have employed total Muppets he should be moving you out until the job is done, his LL insurance should have cover for alternative accommodation.

                                Been a tenant in my flat for 7 years. Been a great tenant, always pay rent on time. No issues at all. I like the location, it's close to my friends, so everything is fine. The property is a house split into 4 flats. I am top floor flat. New landlord bought property last summer. I started to get a leak...

                                I have seen this exact situation in my job....... look to move, it will not be resolved. The flats i dealt with were purpose built so you would have expected the correct amount of sound separation, in your situation that will not even be there, you will go round in circles, have lots of stress and probably...

                                Hi all, new to the forum! I’m just after some advice as to whether I should inform my landlord about a situation with my neighbours. Just for reference, I am renting a ground floor flat that was previously a house and is now two flats. As it’s an old building the walls are paper thin so it can get...

                                No way I would replace or install a solid fuel appliance, way too dangerous and not environmentally friendly. Get some real nice ones on YouTube, that’s what I use at Christmas on TV…has everything…tree, gifts, fire even stockings. Just the job.

                                Good afternoon.

                                I have a tenant at a house for 5 years now and had the chimney outside stack removed in March this year. Prior to this it was an open fire.

                                You can manually put them on different wifi chanels to prevent that.

                                Modern routers can work that out for themselves and set to a less used channel if needed, may take them a week or so to monitor who is using what channels and adjust....
