    property management representative problems (With me being the tennant)

    As you may or may not know from my previous post (in the health/safety section ) Been having some problems with my new place we are renting.
    My problem is every time I speak to the property management person he is rude,derogatory and makes out that I am exagerating.
    The house I am renting is in short ... a death trap. There have been so many problems since I moved in (25 days ago) it is unreal.
    Today the structural engineer came out to assess the damage caused by the previous owner:
    Engineer stresses that the doorway from kitchen to utility room needs immediate support.
    Ring Property management company to be told that "is it really that urgent? its not like its fallen down yet?" explaining our case and how we feel etc seems to be useless as we are left feeling unbelieved and unlistened to.
    We have also had the carpet fitter out today to relay the carpet that the electricians pulled up to do the re-wire. Carpet fitter apparantly couldnt find the underlay, layed the carpet on bare boards (the carpet now doesnt reach the walls?" When relaying this to the property managment person he rudely tells me ... do you not know that carpets stretch!!
    Now If this was my house and I was paying for this work I would not be happy with the carpet being left how it has. I would not like my tennants to be treated in this manner.
    Can anyone advise who would be my best point of call to complain to. I can supply pictures of Damage etc and all the problems we are having.
    Could just really do with some advice as I am loosing the will to live, not being well and suffering from depression which I have pointed out to the property managment team, this is really not helping me health wise.
    Any advice on this or my other issue would be great!
    Thanks for reading

    Actually I think the room size regulations in the Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Mandatory Conditions of Licences)(England) Regulations 2018 are limited to licensable HMOs. The Part X Housing Act 1985 space standards would apply, but I believe that in these, a room that is smaller than...

    My area doesn't need a HMO licence for 4 bed property. The license is only reqd for a 5 bed and more.

    I have a 4 bed property which I rent out to students as a 3 bedroom house. The 4th bedroom size is bit less than 6.51 sq meters reqd for a HMO license and as a result I have never allowed...

    Serve (yourself) s8 for arrears today.

    Sounds like in addition to agent lack-of-perfection the Tenant hasn't heard the message.

    Can we assume you'll provide no reference or only a full, honest one, and will instruct agent to do likewise?

    Have you formally gone...

  • Tenant not paying and letting agent mismanaged
    by Beeble
    We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

    Tenant moved in...

    This is pretty much me, although my agent is very good and doesn't need much "rein".

    They have a high street presence, which tenants like (makes the agent more real) and have multiple people to answer phones.
    And they have a mostly female staff, which is a big plus for ...

    Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

    Paperwork shouldn't be an issue in claiming unpaid rent.
    Unpaid rent is usually easy to prove - the tenant's paid some and has obviously been renting something.

    The issue is usually that the tenant doesn't have the money they owe.

    The lack of agent and paperwork will...

    As said above, unless being a landlord has been a childhood dream (weird if it were), i vote to sell and move on. A lot of experienced LL's are selling up anyway due to a multitude of rubbish from the govt, in your position, simply reap the reward of your late fathers good financial decisions and enjoy...
