  • I have found tenants!!

    At long last I found found some tenants for my flat. After paying to advertise on websites such as rightmove, etc and paying to put an ad in the local paper my tenants found me from a free listing that I put on Gumtree. I was looking through websites, found gumtree and thought "I haven't posted on here yet I may as well as it's everywhere else" and lo and behold less than 48 hours later I have a couple round to look at the property and they say they want to move in. They've passed the credit checks and are really nice people.

    We're living in the flat at the moment and are in the process of buying a house so went to see our solicitor the other day to exchange. Problems have arisen though about the neighbours having access straight through our back garden (which we've only just found out about) so our solicitor has told the other sides solicitor to sort it out. Me and my husband have more or less decided that we're going to pull out and went to look at another property last night - cheaper, no access issues and needs less work doing to it that the original property (still loads though as a complete dump).

    Looks like we'll be moving in with friends for a short while as our tenants are moving in on 2 June.

    I've still got to draw up the AST though and have to try and figure out what to put in the AST and that notice you have to issue re:deposit.

  • Extremely anti-social and criminal tenant -Section 8
    I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

    You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

    My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

    Strike a deal taking into account your likely penalty and eviction costs and offer her an amount...

  • Tips for making a good impression when meeting a landlord
    Our potential new landlady has 'approved us in principle' but wants to meet us at the house as the final part in the referencing process. Beside the obvious such as look smart, tidy and professional and warn the kids to behave, any particular tips for making sure this last hurdle goes smoothly?

    Some of the above comments are crazy!. If they have aleady done their referencing and credit checks then they likely just want to meet you.

    As someone said above, they are trusting you with their very valuable asset.

    As a landlord I couldn't care less what clothes someone...

  • Landlord Address

    Tenancy finished a couple of months ago. The landlord withheld part of the deposit for a variety of reasons. As the tenant, I disputed those deductions as incorrect - they contradict the Checkout Report which was completed by an agent of the Landlord but that's besides the point....

    As the tenancy has finished you have no right to his address from agent.

    Have you spent £3 with land registry to get deeds of property & see who is listed as owner & what address?? (Landlord may not be owner... legal, no very uncommon...)
