    So will each subsequent set of Ts need to buy a wheelie bin ? If present Ts buy one then it's their property.

    IMO it should be council. OP ring them up and say that previous occupants have made off with it and offer to pick it up.

    Many moons ago whilst owning a leasehold flat we had to pay for new bins through the service charge one year (we had two big commerial type ones).
    I'm a good tenant with great landlords
    I'm also a living, breathing, fully cooked female.

        Thing is, if OPs council do wheelie bins then it's likely that they will not accept waste in any other bin (ours won't).

          What about the freeholder of the block of flats? As they're the landlord of the leaseholders, would you argue that the freeholder should provide leaseholders with bins?
          ????

          Every leaseholder should have a bin, either supplied by the council,
          or paid for by the leaseholder.

          I am a lease holder, and I have a bin,
          The other flats each have a bin.
          Number of bins = number of flats ( or larger 4 wheeler )

          If you rent out your flat, you include a bin -- simples.

            Poor bl***y LLs, we'll be buying nappies next!!
            Council resp for domestic waste collection, paid for by C Tax payer (normally T). Block of flats may have commercial-sized bins.
            What do other households in area put out on bin day? black bags or wheelies?
            Most Councils use assorted colour coded wheelies and supply first of each type foc & charge for lost/stolen/destroyed replacements.
            What town does OP live in?
            As someone said, wheelies remain the property of the Council, not the LL so have no place on LLs inventory IMO.

              I assume you do without a bin too. Or don't have one big enough for
              all the residents.
              Where do landlords live ?
              and do they store all their rubbish in the kitchen for 2 weeks because
              a bin is deemed none essential ?
              Your house / flat, so you ensure you have a bin, and if you rent it out,
              you ensure the next resident has a bin.

              Landlords forget that they are supplying a home, and storage of
              ROTTING food and waste should be included.
              Nappies are optional, but if you do supply nappies, you need to
              ensure there is a bin too, to put them in, outside.

              But if landlords want rats around their rented property, then
              throw away the bins.

                I was an unexpected landlord when I inherited a property recently. Originally I thought I wanted to carry on but then the tenant was nagging about small repairs and when my contractor went in he said the house was very messy, there was a smell of cat urine and a lampshade and door had been damaged....

                Would need to expire after end fixed term.

                Have S3 & s48 notices been served prior to s21?

                Are you confident s21 was valid? Told by solicitor Tuesday that 70% of landlords s21s are invalid....

                Hi, hope you can offer some insight, we are looking to move rental property due to new job starting in September in a new location.
                So thankfully we've a window to shop around to find a new place.
                We've found one suitable spot but we're still looking around, the new place has asked for credit...

                thanks, but it's exactly this sort of thing we wish to avoid, bad faith and stress :-(
                is the rental system really set up like this? to prevent tenants from looking and shopping and moving with ease?
                I guess we've rented the same spot so long we figured we could move when chose not be subject...

                I wouldn't sweat it. Worse comes to worse, you can stay on at the end of your notice. Landlord would still have to go to court to get rid of you.

                This is posted on behalf of my cleaner who approached me for help after her last landlord failed to reply to her repeated requests for return of her deposit.
                She rented a room in a shared house in London, AST, weekly rent all paid on time. Notice given and accepted, room left neat and clean....

                So, the weeks have passed by with no reply from the landlord. I decided to give him a call myself today just to get a feel for the situation. He basically tried to deny that he was the agent in question but then went on to say he would not be paying anything back. We have contacted one of the No Win...

                thanks all for the useful advice and insight
                we contacted the LL directly since I posted but she is taking advice from our current agent who are saying it would be utterly unfair to provide a reference before we hand in our notice as it would not leave them time to advertise and the house would...

                The agent tells me everything was done properly when the tenancy was started, presumably I don't need to redo it all now?
