    Faulty Lock

    Hi Guy's I am writing this post for a friend who is renting a 3 bed house. The lock has a habit of slipping its latch and therefore locking the tennant out! she advised the LL and agent that it was broken and could they fix it but the LL is very tight and does not want to replace it! this happens frequently and she has problems entering the property. Pls advise as to how she could insist that teh LL replaces it? also the LL manages the property himself

    The usual method is to obtain three quotations for the cost of repairing the lock and write to the landlord, anclosing copies, reminding him of the problem and advising him that if he does not repair the problem within (say) 14 days, you will have the job done yourself. The cheapest quotation should be used and this should be deducted from the rent paid.

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

      it is while people are having emergency treatment for serious problems, not just any "mental health issues".
      There are also procedures to get it cancelled if it is unfair or if the debtor could afford to pay....

      Perce, are you quite sure that you don’t need permission? I had a successful hearing about this in Jan. It was s8 so could evict now but need to certify the six months arrears. HCEO are private companies who are raring to go and will sort the high Court paperwork for you as part of the package....

      Hi all, can you give mesome more insight please. If I don't need HCEO, I don't need any writ of control, do I? The solicitors don't have to waste time and money on it at all, so should refund me the total fee for that line item HCEO, or is there any work they have to do in relation to that? I just wanted...

      I can see what jpkeats is saying, and when you read into it, it does state who can determine if the tenant will be protected by that particular clause in the legislation but as with all these things they start off stern but often slide and more people than ever imagined come under the umbrella....

      It's not quite against the law yet, but it's coming soon and so insurers and mortgage providers are changing their terms and ammending terms for existing policies so that those terms don't exclude benefit claimants from rentals, many already have.

      There have been a couple of court cases...

      Hi

      One of my long term tenants (almost 10 years) who had always received housing benefit top up. She has never been a day late with rent or short even. She has now relocated and is temporarily staying with me. Straight away, she has found a job and now she is looking for a new property....

      That's what I was meaning, now two 'problem' housholds/neighbours (possibly warring against each other) instead of one.

      There goes the neighbourhood, and that's how problem estates start....
