    NICEIC guidance

    My new insurance company is insisting that I get an NICEIC certificate for a two-bedroom flat that I rent out.

    The electrician I have contacted tells me that this will be an all-day job. Can this be right?

    Not sure what is meant by a NICEIC certificate, but I assume it is a Periodic Inspection Report. For that, 2-3 hours would be more appropriate I'd have thought.

      I agree with Eric. Our domestic electrical installation periodic inspection report comes on an NICEIC headed form. For a 3 bedroomed terraced house it certainly didn't take a whole day. Our electrician charged £125+VAT last year to do the inspection. I'd be curious to know if that sounds reasonable by anybody else's experience.

        Good Day All,
        I am a new landlord and as such decided to not undertake the task of all the nuances of letting so I hired a letting agency.

        Things went smoothly until I wanted the tenant to leave. The date the tenant was to leave was the 13th of January. To date, he still has not left...

        Serve notice yourself and then assuming you instructed the Agent to serve notice on the tenant and they failed to do so, cancel the contract with them and report their incompetence to whichever redress scheme they are part of....

        Summary:
        Who is responsible for keys if they break 3hrs into tenancy by bending (poor metal) and later proven the 2nd copy of key I had was stiff (and lock has a "knack" and a "fraction") and was later given agency copy of keys which were better than my "stiff keys".

        So with the 2 hour clean you'll be taking court action over a dirty side of a bed and a key? Last time I had a key cut it was less than a fiver and it sounds like a 3 minute cleaning job to do down the side of the bed. It really does feel like a massive over reaction. Taking this into consideration...

      • Notice period when subletting
        peacelily
        A bit of background to explain the situation- I am currently subletting a room from a tenant of a flat who is renting from a landlord.

        I have now given my notice to move out.

        Our original agreement (only by email, nothing signed or in writing) stated that the tenant would...

        I want to take court action if I have to pay for a cleaner, because those responsible for the property will not.
        I want to take court action as the agency I'm sure will take it from my deposit if I do not pay for a 2nd key to be cut.

        I'm not a slave, nor a cleaner, nor do I have any...

        Inventory was done Friday and given to me today and I have raised the points (sorry, this is further down in my lengthy post). The agent said that they've gotten inventory company to pay for a 2hr clean tomorrow but that they won't be cleaning down side of bed unless I travel up there and move the bed......

        You are responsible for the cleaning, as you should have checked the inventory when it was made. It will now be very difficult to prove that it was wrong.

        I find it very difficult to believe there is a market in such obviously sub-standard key blanks, but I would guess the person who commissioned...

        I know this is not what you want to hear, but this is my experience :

        My tenants rarely leave my properties in the condition I would like. I usually just get on clean and fix whatever, and unless it really is something of great cost or loss, just stomach it and move on. The reason is...
