    Have you ever watched how long voids appear to be on many commercial lets?

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

      The void issue can apply to any class of property investment, its all about location,location,location.

      With commerciall you have much more secure agreements of min 5 year lease.
      If its an estabilshed buisness,then void times/re-newals should not be a problem.

      However, I have noted that they are very expensive especially good freeholds.

        You are right 'Wickerman', it all sounds very complex.

        I'm just investigating other avenues of property investment with out all the hassels of residentail lets.

        Like some People I know have done without specialist knowledge and now own a chain of freehold retail properties.

        However, I will seek more info on the commercial forum of this site.

          Main reason for residential: you don't need a surveyor.
          In commercial let, T likely to request consents to this & that. If you don't have a surveyor, experienced T will have its own surveyor run rings around you.

            If you are pursuing the tenant via the small claims court it can impact a s8 hearing on the same matter.
            It should have no impact on a s21 hearing.

            However, as it is now clear that you are not actually going to do anything, other than post here about your problems, it's probably academic....

            I have a Tenant Couple who have informed me this week that they can not afford the rent this month. Naturally they have blamed this on the Coronavirus however they have paid their rent 1 week late often, sometimes longer so have struggled in the past.

            Currently the minimum notice period for a s21 notice is three months, after which you can apply to a court for a possession order.

            The whole process in normal times would take 6 - 9 months, and currently will take longer, but the time frame is not known, because courts have paused all activity...

            My tenant is on rolling contract. Since 18/04 he has not paid the rent only paid a quarter of the owed rent recently. I am ready to serve him s21. Because he is hard to talk to and being dishonest to me. Does the s21 include the time for eviction? You might say 3moths but I will say 2 weeks whatso...

            The raft of recent legislation pretty much requires that you print a planet destroying amount of paper (and some parts of it, such as the rather wonderful "How to rent" booklet are designed so as to require an entire ink cartridge worth of ink per page).

            Strangely enough the...

            Hi,

            I have a new tenant moving in. Ive got the contract and Condition Report ready to go but I dont have access to a printer. Is it enough for me to email these to the tenant and ask them in writing to respond theyre happy with it all?

            Thanks...

            Hi

            My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
            I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

            Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...
