    Periodic Standard Contract/Secure Contract

    There was a government paper last year (Renting Homes Draft Bill) on the impending arrival of new style tenancy contracts. I've searched the web recently and cannot see any further details or development. Does anyone know of any further progress on this or of any dates that might affect landlords.

    While many on here worked their socks off for years during the day and then evenings and weekends putting their money into property, many others decided to live for the day and have total disregard for the future and what it may bring.

    Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

    I'm more concerned at the possibility of a winter of unheated rental properties and then the tenants expecting me to deal with the resultant mold.

    I think the deposit of five weeks rent is more trouble than its worth. Not taking deposits means being a bit more selective in choosing tenants.
    Considering the value of the asset the tenants are trusted with the deposit rules are crazy. But thats only one of the red tape obstacles to being a...

    The daft thing is that because people will owe them the money, it won't even affect the energy company profits.

    Looking after a significant amount of someone else's money is not a trivial undertaking.

    I spent most of my career designing and building business solutions to replace manual processes.
    So I have a reasonable idea of what's possible.

    As said the idea of simply not paying is in the realms of crazy. They can get a warrant and fit a pre-payment meter to the house without your consent, i understand they will not be able to do this with everyone but the message will soon go out if they target the 1st few thousand, and as said your credit...

    You accept and defer ,and I take the view that the DPS could set up a programme where the incoming receipt of fund(and email details) could trigger the transmission of information relating to the DPS, and its processes. It means there is one less thing to go wrong. I like an easier life and do not take...
