    I would report that anonymous phone call to the police, just so that there is a record in the event that the situation deteriorates.
    it is 2 houses I own one is into 2 flats and the other a house,complaining tenant is downstairs I would check more ofton but live 50 miles away so not always possible, this week the comp tenant telephoned me at 11.30 at night to say he had rung the police ,the upatairs tenant had only just arrived back from his family home after been away for 7 days,i telephoned the police who told me luckily thay had 2 officers near by when the call came in so went within minutes all the houses were quiet and no music or windows open.Checked today and no rent

    We had a tenant recently who was the subject of loads of complaints about noise, wild parties etc from surrounding tenants who were serial moaners. Nicest tenant, very polite, in a very responsible job, didn't seem the party type at all and was most upset that people would even think he would be, even offered for us to come along to the flat anytime to inspect it - which we did, it was immaculate.

    A week later I was driving past on the way home from a late night out, it was 12.45, for no particular reason decided to drive up that road - it was party central in his flat! must have had 50 people in a two bed flat, the noise was ridiculous. He got given notice the next day.

    Always go and check yourself; sometimes the nicest most reasonable tenant in the world can turn into a moron with a couple of beers.

    You can serve notice on any tenant you like. If the moaning T has a statutory periodic tenancy you could, alternatively, serve notice to increase the rent.

    Morning,

    Check out the details on section 21 as depending on your contract that might be the quickest way to get rid of moaning tenant.

    1. No.
    2. No.

    Are the tenants sharing a property?

    tenant hinted at not paying rent

    a tenant hinted last week that he should not have to pay rent on his flat due to his complaints about another tenant and that I should evict the other tenant,
    The other tenant has paid his rent on time answers my telephone calls and is very worried that he is constantly been reported for noise and bad lanuage .No one else is complaining except private house owners who are friends of tenant complaining.i have always found him polite and so has everyone else I have asked
    1 can he withhold rent like this

    2 can other people dictate who I let to

    3 I had a very nasty phone call last week from unknown but I have my ideas stating they would attack my tenant and trash my property.

    4 both are good tenants but the compalining one is dictating all the time who i let my property to it cannot go on.

    Can I serve notice on complaining tenant as I have had enough of no one good enough to live above him.(he is paying less rent than anyone else and has not had a rent rise for 4 years but does nothing but complain and what everything doing.

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

    In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

    IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
