    Complaints about eviction services

    Just a quick one I hope.

    I used an eviction company found via a link on here and they completely messed up both the section 8 and 21. I have now organized it properly and asked them for a refund but they refuse to answer.

    Is there an organisation I can take the matter up with?

    Sue through the courts see...

    You could try trading standards & maybe whoever they are regulated, if anybody does regulate them.

    How much were you charged for this "service"??

      What I say is based on my own experience and research - Please don't take as gospel without first checking the gospel yourself.


        It was about a hundred pounds


          This should have been added on to your current thread:

          Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong


            Think I will just complain to trading standards and see what happens


              You can Private Message me the details -- we may have something in common


                You could notify LLZ the details,tey prob don't want to advertise a cr@p service.

                  Well, partly, but mainly I'm considering whether the sheds would have to be explicitly excluded from the tenancy in the AST. It's a question of what would be considered the default position in law....

                  Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

                  Interesting. I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Nonetheless, if the deeds stipulate that the sheds are part of the flat, rather than communal, surely that's quite a different matter....

                  I believe the OP is coming from the position of:
                  • The LL has granted us the right, beyond the tenancy agreement, to use two sheds.
                  • Would the law consider that having granted that use, the LL cannot unilaterally withdraw the use of those sheds?

                  The Government guidance suggests not (under "What will the report show?").

                  I noticed a new law means landlords need to arrange an EICR for new tenancies after July 2020 or before April 2021.

                  Please can I get some advice on this? I started a tenancy in May 2020 - this is due to expire in November 2020. However it is likely the tenancy will be renewed...

                  There may or may not be a lease in that case. But there might be. If there is a lease, then it makes no difference that the lessee and freeholder happen to be the same people. If there are no leases, I cannot see that you have any particular rights beyond the flat that you lease. The presumption in...

                  Yes, the tenants have to take reasonable steps.

                  But the OP didn't mention fans or ventilation and did mention opening the windows "when" bathing or cooking....

                  by Borischelski
                  I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?

                  A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.

                  The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

                  No, you are telling them that they need to take reasonable steps such as removing excess water and ventilating the bathroom after showering.
                  And, maybe, treating hte mould when it appears.

                  In my shower room:
                  1. I use a "squeegee" to remove most water from walls, screen, and
