    I do agree it waas nice just to sleep and not have a horrible fear of pain that you get in the pit of ones stomach- as I said I never wanted to become a LL it was by accident following my parent passing..but the pain in the pit of my stomach seems to have gone away ( for now atleast ) .thanks thesaint -MSaxp !! ( though I did turn my mobile off and its still off ! )

    ** I think thats the best right of advice I have ever had *** thank you *** to think rationally and calmly is the key I feel that to him everything is a emergency and he must find it slightly amusing dragging a 30 something girl from her bed drive 19 miles to him, I must look a total state. My friend says that I am far to nice and I need to be stronger - but deep down I have never been like that I will always help someone no matter what - but as you say this is business and I have to adjust. If I can say last night was the first night in a long time I didnt think about the BTL or the Tenant and actually slept well..so thanks for that fantastic advice yesterday.


    In reply to thesaint he has my mobile number I do recall a time when I was called out at 11 pm when he called me out because he wanted me to lend him £20 for gas- which like a idiot I did.

    I feel that the advice form both you ( thesaint -MSaxp ) has been truley wonderful.

    I have to stop worrying consently about the BTL.

    Thanks guys

    If a landlord asks "how high?" when a tenant says "jump", it is not the fault of the agent.

    Its not through choice that I take these calls I have told him countless times to contact the LAgent..who is great.

    But still no joy. I suppose I get paniced into thinking something terrible has happended and answer.The LAgent has also asked that only they are contacted. But he has my number - not much I can do about that and he calls - when I asked him why all he said was it takes them ( L/Agent) ages to sort things out ( which untrue ).

    My friend says the only reason is cause Im stupid enough to answer and jump in my car drive 19 miles in the middle of the night to the property as soon as I am called.

    When the LAgent would just log the call and make arrangements for contractor to visit. The worst thing is when ever I get there its never anything important or that couldnt be resolved easily.

    As MSaxp says worrying doesnt help. And what he said above is totally correct.

    I understand the tenant is a pain. What makes you think they will leave willingly? You mean after you serve the notice, or has he suggested he is looking to leave?
    No offence taken at all

    I have become a accidental landlord not through choice.

    I would totally agree with you - I feel a person needs to have nerves of steel to a point to be a LL and not take it to heart after all its business.

    The tenant has stated he will leave as soon as he finds somewhere else so all being well and good.

    Thanks for your kind response - I am surprized that you would worry looking at your posts you seem very knowledgable.

    But the worrying is only due to this one gent the past tenants were all lovely and I have always worked with them.

    I feel that this forum is a wonderful thing as it helps to think it may be bad but others have far worse situations to deal with. ( not that I take comfort from others difficulties at all )

    But it also lets you take support and strength from others who have been there and done it a 1000 times ! Maybe I can beome like that one day.

    NIX.

    I basically have had enough of the consent phone calls in the middle of the night complaining about silly things like not having enough money to put credit on the elc and gas meters and expecting me to credit the meter for him.

    I have been called at most silly hours like once called at 4am! to complain that the roof was leaking when it was condensation on the window which dripped onto the window ledge!!..etc


    Or the calls at 2.30am to say that the light bulb had gone

    Or the call at 11 pm to ask to change the carpet as it was cold

    Etc
    Etc
    Etc

    I have become such a bag of nerves I am scared to turn my phone on and find myself just literally worrying myself sick to the point there have been times I couldn’t eat due to worry – let alone sleep thinking – is it going to ring again- what ever could be wrong now ? …all this in property I lived in for 15 years with my family with out any issues..

    So hopefully he will move out and I can get my sanity back

    Sorry MSaxp - I thought going down the Section 21 route didnt require a personal court visit as long as deposit was under scheme and all the dates were in order ? are you saying I would have to go to court ?

    Snorkerz has a link in his signature for his company. Very knowledgeable chap.

    £875 sounds ridiculous. Its a thing you can do yourself and there is no defense for it, if the paperwork is in order. If it would make you feel better, you can employ someone to look and prepare the paperwork (i.e. like snorkerz). However, you still have to appear in court yourself. Any chance the £875 included a solicitor for the court? Still a waste of money IMHO.

    May I ask why you want to evict your tenant? Is he giving you trouble?

    QUOTE SNORKERZ : The agent can also complete the necessary court paperwork. What they can't do is sign on your behalf - the claim is completed in your name and you must sign it. The agent also can not attend court in your place.

    The only legislation that may possibly apply is the Legal Services Act 2007 (which restricts these acts to solicitors) but that is hardly new.

    There are a number of companies (including mine) that can give you the help your agents seem to have withdrawn.

    Does your company have a website at all Snorkerz I could view? I am hopeful the tenant will vacate by his own accord...but if not a section 21 - will be the next best thing - I have recvd a few quotes for the section 21 process - with one company wanting £875 (whose name escapes me - they advised me that it would difficult and complicated process hence the high fee)!!- Which seems so high to me?


    Thanks JK0 -Mxasp-the saint for all your helpful words - it s very strange that they say something has changed - were as you all agree nothing has. And I honestly feel that you guys really do know what you’re on about. Maybe its to much hassle for them ?

    Thanks so much - Ill try not to keep worrying myself sick about my tenants and hope that by Jan 2013 they would have vacated.

    Thanks all-have a lovely xmas all

    This may just be one part of it, as ' ash72' states there are a lot less rental properties now (and it will get worse in the future), rents have sky rocketed and a LL can simply pick and choose the very very best tenant.
