    When could LLs start arranging viewings?

    Hi

    Just a quick question: Suppose one month notice has been given to the T, when could the LL start bringing in prospective Ts for viewing?

    Thanks

    What does the tenancy agreement state?

      The agreement doesn't specify when viewings can take place.

      I'm a tenant.

        It's down to you at the end of the day. It's your home but the LL's house. If you don't allow viewing s then be prepared to get notice to leave served on you as a consequence, which wouldn't be much of a consequence as it stands. You can block access to your home and stipulate when you want the viewings to take place if you want. The ball is in your court although it won't feel like it when the LA starts to put the pressure on.

          There is nothing that gives a landlord permission to do viewings without the agreement of the tenant.
          Also, you say one months notice has been given, what type of tenancy do you have?

            Who gave Notice you or LL?
            Will you hope for a good ref from this LL?

              Sorry, typo. It's a 2 month notice.

                  Sorry, I missed mariner's question earlier. The LL gave it to me.

                  I guess I'm not too concerned about getting a good ref - from experience, some friends of mine with bad ref (and even without any ref at all) still managed to get flats so I'm not sure how crucial a good ref is...

                    why not say that you will accept viewings only on a certain day and time during last month (eg Sat at 2pm till 3pm for example)?

                      Most written tenancy agreements have a clause in them about viewings, often during the last 28 days of the tenancy.

                        chrislo - if you haven't agreed to viewings in the tenancy agreement then you can now agree what you like with the landlord or agent. What you do depends on what you want. As others have suggested, if you are on good terms with this landlord and want a good reference, you might be as well to agree to appropriate viewings. However, if you're not on good terms or don't care about the reference then you can refuse any viewings. The bit about 'last 28 days of the tenancy' can also be a bit misleading if it is in the contract depending on the wording, as the last 28 days is only known in the case of the tenant serving a notice to quit or when you have a bailiff date - a s21 remember does not end the tenancy. Have you served a notice to quit yet?

                          Very good point elniinio... Never thought that one through: Although it could be argued that as any periodic, month-by-month, tenancy is a "new" one then the last 28 days is certain... Shame nobody will ever bring a test case... I suspect...

                            I had to deal with this earlier in the year for a friend. She had gone SPT, received a s 21 (invalid but not relevant) and in the TA she had agreed 'to permit viewings during the last 8 weeks of the tenancy'. LA was being very aggressive in trying to arrange viewings at first, but backed off once they realised they were wrong.

                              It is a bit tricky to get the drafting right. The new government tenancy agreement goes some way to addressing the problem but still does not cover the position once an SPT arises.

                                The problem is that the agent isn't bound by the tenancy agreement, and what they do with the deposit depends on their agreement with you.

                                As you can't do anything with the deposit anyway, because it's the company's money and they don't agree that you can have any of it, it's a bit academic...

                                If the tenancy is joint and several, and it's in a periodic tenancy, one tenant can serve notice and that ends the tenancy for both of them. So you don't have to serve notice on anyone if you don't want to.
                                That bit is simple.

                                The issue you will then face is that neither of them or...

                                The tenant agreement states that the Landlord should hold onto the deposit until the dispute is resolved but, the agent is disputing this, claiming that they are the ones to hold onto the deposit as part of their Full Management Service...

                                What can be used to get judge to reduce alleged arrears (thus maybe chucking case out) if pointing out all the repairs the landlord should have made , assigning a value to them, and thus judge reduces "arrears|" by that amount. See from the experts......

                                I have a good landlord who agreed to a rent reduction last year because of ongoing maintenance issues and lower market values. However, I can only communicate with them through an agency.
