  • Tenancy break up
    Captain Birdseye
    Hi hope someone can help with this situation.

    Tenants have been with me for over a year and signed joint tenancy. Now on a periodic tenancy the lead tenant has given me 1 months notice to vacate the property due to relationship break down. The other person wishes to stay in the property...

    Just tell them they will all have to leave once she serves notice and explain the consequences if trespass if they dont leave. Once she has served the notice it cant be revoked so its out of your hands anyway

    Hi, I am new to the letting business, and have just come into possession of a terraced house that I intend to let rather than sell. The attic in the house I am about to let out was converted 35 years ago, without building control or planning. Its fine, but doesnt satisfy modern regs in terms of fire...

    Tenants will be tempted to sublet the attic or AirBnB it. If you have concerns about the attic space then I would say this property is not really suitable for letting

I paid rent every month on time and gave him the correct amount of notice prior to moving out. I left the flat clean and received an email response from him...

    Hi all,

    Thank you for all of your responses. They are very helpful.

    Mariner, to answer your questions, it was a joint tenancy, I am listed as the lead tenant and it is my name on the deposit scheme. He took out the insurance option, which means he has spent the money. What...

    Thing is, if that were the case, now the law is in place, it is too late to email anyone to ask for consent for future emails. ...

    Rarely! And the number of large corporations who got it all wrong, some of whom are now trying to say they are sorry, can they take it all back?

    I am holding off with the "I told you so's" for the more stridently convinced colleagues who were so rudely certain they had to ask...

    ShinyTim
    Thats it really, would you let tenants move their furniture in, before the official date on the t/a
    they have paid the deposit and the 1st months rent, signed the agreement, and have been offered a free van to use on a date a week before I am to give them the keys
