          I think it will improve it overall.
          Tenants won't get ripped off as much as they do and Landlords who have been evading tax for years cos they can't be found will now have to declare their earnings (and so they should)

              Garn- nobody even knows what "vested" means in this context; it's nothing to do with whar Americans call "undershirts".

                  a) I think it'll instill more confidence in Tenants to go out and let.
                  b) The tax evaders will get scared of being tracked down and sell up lots of properties, to which the honest LL's can purchase and expand their businesses.. . .
                  Thus will improve living conditions....
                  the health of the country......
                  A reduction in spending on the NHS . . . . .

                    There must be a Latin term for this type of argument...

                    ... undershirts! LOL

                      2. Next, read all about capital letters.

                            From Wikipedia:

                            A vested interest is the state or condition of having a special interest in protecting or supporting something for the purpose of self-interest, gain or benefit, often financially or politically. By way of protecting their vested interests, individuals, groups or other entities may seek to maintain a status quo. However, if changing a system works in one's favor, supporting or effecting such change may also be in one's vested interest. "Vested interests" may also refer collectively to individuals or groups which seek to maintain a favorable state of affairs.
                            The context is perfect IMO.

                              Actually when I use such chat up lines I use the word 'poppet' not poppy. Haha

                                Where I rent properties (Beds / Northants / Nottingham) rents have risen substantially and availability has fallen. So my question is still, 6 months on from everyone being told to stay at home and with normality of work returning for many tenants (I accept not all) and many people not unduly financially...

                                I cancelled all my annual rent increases when Covid hit. Since then some people have really suffered financially and others haven’t. In addition LHA rates have increased substantially for anyone needing support which appears to have had the knock on effect of increasing the rent of properties now...

                                I did consider approaching a Tracing Agent to try to obtain the Tenant's current whereabouts or updated information about them but the feeling is that it is not worth initiating this yet as its too soon. They may not show-up as having set-up elsewhere yet or have generated updated information about...

                                The tenancy is a statutory periodic tenancy after the original AST ended. The tenant has rent arrears and a S21 was issued around 3 months ago. There is no deposit and an EPC, gas safety certificate and how to rent guide were all issued previously to the tenant.

                                I believe that the tenant...

                                You can prevent the landlord from entering, as you have a right to quiet enjoyment, you can even replace the locks if you would like.

                                In turn, the landlord could issue you a section 21 notice, but the notice period is 6 months currently plus the court backlog.

                                I am having A LOT of trouble with my LL who is continually asking to carry out improvements on the property. It is literally nonstop and it has got to the stage where I am utterly fed up and want to leave.
