    ITV looking for Landlords and Tenants

    ITV's current affairs series 'Tonight' is looking for people to take part in a programme about the recent growth in the Buy to Let Market.

    We're looking for:
    A wannabe Landlord – currently looking for a property who feels they want to invest in bricks and mortar after losing faith in pensions and other investments to secure a future for themselves.

    A new Landlord who is just starting out maybe with 1 or 2 properties and hoping to earn good yield as well as using the properties as a pension instead of investing for the future elsewhere. (maybe you are just decorating/working on the property before you let it)

    An experienced Landlord who having not invested during the downturn has started to extend their portfolio after seeing the recent growth in the buy to let market.

    We're really interested in learning how much confidence there is in buy to let amongst Landlords and where the apparent 'hotspots' appear to be (aside from London and the South East)

    You can reach me at

    Thank you

    Just in case anyone is wondering, Emily did seek the agreement of LLZ before posting this thread.

      Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

      How many occupants do you have please?

      Hi all.
      I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
      Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

      If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

      I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

      Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

      I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

      I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

      One of the reasons why...

      The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

      This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

    • Accelerated possession order
      by Pariah81
      A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

      I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

      this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
