    Final inspection and moving out meeting - might seem to be a daft question

    We are due to meet for the final inspection, moving out meeting this weekend, we have agreed the date and time.
    When the tenants moved in they were late, annoying but not too bad as we were waiting inside the house for them.(He walked in 20 mins late, he went to the shops for a hot bacon butty and a can of coke)
    They have already moved some things out, if they are late for the moving out meeting, can we let ourselves in, say 30 mins after the agreed time and start the inspection? I don't want to be hanging around but don't want to make any mistakes.
    Many thanks in advance

    If I understand you correctly then the tenants haven't returned their key and aren't doing so, ending the tenancy, until after the inspection, right?

    In which case you shouldn't enter the property now, any more than at any other time during the tenancy. But if they're definitely moving out, then there's probably not a lot of bad that can come of it if you do enter.

    Personally I wouldn't do the checkout until after they'd given you the key back; then you can organise the time for doing it convenient to you, and then if they are late or don't come (and they don't need to be there), then that's up to them.

      Thanks for your reply, last time I did the inspection with the tenant and thought that this was best practise. What is your view?

            Thanks so much. The defendants are already throwing in a lot of rubbish at me now, I can’t wait to see what they will say in front of the judge. I will probably keep my mouth shut and ignore whatever they are spinning.

            when you explained the case, did the Judge ask for any clarifications....

            S21 was issued, tenants left, has 9 months rent arrears amounting to over 10k+. The hearing review (which I wasn't called for or required to attend) progressed onto a money claim telephone hearing which is coming up as there was no longer a need for a possession claim. So I guess that means everything...

            Things have been very volatile lately, I suspect partly due to the uncertainty amongst students over the summer having a knock-on effect.
            Rents were much lower a couple of months ago, then shot up near the start of term, they may not stay as high.

            You may get £800, for 3 months,...

            I am a landlord and have been letting a property out to tenants for £600 PCM for 4 years with no rent increases, i have not had my eye on the ball for 18 months and have just found out that very similar properties in the area are going for £800 PCM. What is the maximum i could raise the rent at the...

            But you'd still be doing yourself out of £1,800 per year.

            You're going to waste another 3 years after that getting to todays market rent of £800 - which by then will probably be £900+

            You're missing out on a few nice holidays or the cost in redecorating, recarpeting your...

            If they vacated in March, isnt mid October a little late to be asking for help.

            I take it you have new tenants now.

            YOU made the mistake (which we all do) but you should just accept it, learn from it and move on.

            By all means offer them 50% of their deposit...

            Hello all,

            As an amateur landlord, I have made quite a big mistake.

            I’ve let a house to a limited company and used an AST template from the Law Society, not realising that the document is not valid for use with companies.

            All was well until March this year when...

            I have no intention of evicting my tenants but funny you should mention £50 per month as i thought that would be a reasonable amount as well....

            I would suggest you might get away with £50 pcm increase with an explanation that a rent has not gone up for 4 years so there needs to be a significant rent rise. Then £25 cpm each year until you have caught up bit. Seems unfair to evict tenants for you taking you eye off the ball!

            Landlords are actually getting £800 as there is a massive demand in the area as very few properties available for rent, the market has gone crazy, £1200 for a 3 bed semi in Liverpool....
