    Resident L means not an AST so TDS n/a.

      jeffrey, thanks for your reply, please could you expand more, I have converted bunaglow divided into 5 flats, I live in one, am I classed as a resident landlord and should not be using AST's ?, 3 flats (inc mine) have shared access, other 2 have separate independent access.

      If not AST what should I be using ?

        Is each flat self-contained with it's own bathroom & kitchen? Is the only shared facility the access? If the answer to these two questions is yes, then you can use AST's.

          Yes, Joannepowell, shared access plus all have access to the Washing machine, all have own kit/bathroom etc, does this mean I'm not a resident landlord, its very confusing as I've searched, even the links I have followed state its not clear cut

            You are definitely a resident landlord - tenancy deposit scheme does not apply unless you use ASTs (inadvisable anyway as there are some shared facilities). Use a licence agreement for each occupant and you can take and hold a deposit without fear or favour.
            The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

              Thankyou Paul_f, for your advice, been using AST's for 11 years, you live and learn, off to read up on licence agreements

                I wondered if anyone can tell me if it is possible to counter claim for damage, harassment, poss landlord breach in contract and emotional distress in a section 8 eviction.
                so basically I’ve read online that i can claim for compensation which will go towards reducing my rent arrears but my solicitor...

                I am a Landlord and I have a company tenancy which has now come to an end. I did a check-in inventory before the tenant moved in and I have done a check-out inventory now that they have moved out, and there are damages to my property by the tenant. The deposit is being held by the agent and is not in...

                If the agent is refusing the mediate the dispute between the tenant and myself but, is instead asking me to go to court, what are my options in terms of penalising the agent? Apart from firing them, can I get compensation from them failing to provide their services?...

                You declare (online) and pay CGT within 60 days of sale. Depending on the numbers I would expect you to pay CGT. What records do you have of applicable costs, etc?

                What you pay will depend on what CGT rules when you sell - v unlikely to be better than today, possibly worse. Covid,...

                Hello

                I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

                I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

                From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

                Yes


                Yes, I agree that deposit protection legislation does not apply and I happy to settle this dispute without trying to involve a Deposit Scheme

                The reality is that there a fewer and fewer properties coming onto the rental market, as LL's are selling up, this unfortunately means that those left in want higher rents due to the burden of higher external costs (mortgages, licences, insurance, etc etc) This ultimately means that LL's can in some...
