  • Energy performance certificate required for letting

    I had an estate agent out yesterday to value a house and he stated that it is going to be a requirement to get an energy performance certificate (the same Bull@%$" one that is included in the HIPS pack. This is for every new tannacy agreement. Any truth in this?

    No truth yet- but there have been suggestions of this future change in the law.
    Perhaps Gordon will knock it on the head.

      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
      purpleangel
      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...

      Hello,

      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...)

      I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out.
