  • Quality of documents from clickdocs.co.uk

    What is the general consensus on the quality of the propert-letting documents on offer from clickdocs.co.uk?

    Didn't know about the site until your post, no loss there, I've just seen their prices. Try this forum or at those prices, WH Smith.

      I will yet again repeat my post, particularly in view of the aforementioned prices: www.oyezformslink.co.uk is where you should get almost everything you need, and you can examine the text of many of the forms on screen - without the bl**dy great red stripe down the middle, making such a task impossible!

      P.P.
      Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

        If you were a bit more enterprising you can find all you want, and probably for free on the internet, e.g. here's one I found with an AST!

        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

            I've just had a look at the AST you recommended. I'm puzzled by a couple of things
            * there is a space for the Landlord's signature, but not the tenant's.
            * there is a space for a witness to the landlord's signature; I thought this
            was not necessary.
            * item (3.28); is this a bit dicey? Can the landlord really take possession if the rent is 4 weeks overdue and he thinks the tenants have left?
            * Why does the AST demand rent is paid on the 1st of each month?
            * item (9); will this do the trick and persuade the various companies
            to divulge forwarding addresses?

              No, but is still almost always done on ASTs

              * item (3.28); is this a bit dicey? Can the landlord really take possession if the rent is 4 weeks overdue and he thinks the tenants have left?

              Change date to fit :P....doesnt matter when the date is

              * item (9); will this do the trick and persuade the various companies

              Good point, I would be very surprised.

                I've just had a look at the AST you recommended. Err..........No! I didn't recommend it nor did I say it was any good; I just said I found it on the internet! I'm puzzled by a couple of things
                * there is a space for the Landlord's signature, but not the tenant's.So amend it if you can!
                * there is a space for a witness to the landlord's signature; I thought this
                was not necessary. It's optional!
                * item (3.28); is this a bit dicey? Can the landlord really take possession if the rent is 4 weeks overdue and he thinks the tenants have left? He can try but it wouldn't necessarily be lawful unless he could prove abandonment!
                * Why does the AST demand rent is paid on the 1st of each month? Just the way some agents/landlords like to have rent paid.
                * item (9); will this do the trick and persuade the various companies
                to divulge forwarding addresses? Dunno!'cause I haven't read it, but they have to comply with the DPA and doubt whether this probably will!
                This just goes to prove that all AST's must be written to protect both landlord & tenant and they understand what everything means; paying for an AST is often no better than a free version unless they are well worded. You pays your money and you takes your choice! That's why I write my own!

                  MrShed
                  I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

                  I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

                  The ones I have mentioned all explicitly state that they are compliant with Privacy Shield.

                  I mean, as said and repeated, if you are a cloud data provider in the EU and a minimum serious then your service complies with EU law...

                  The only popular (used by real people routinely) cloud supplier who claims compliance is Microsoft for Office 365 storage (since 2014).
                  None of the other suppliers, as far as I can find out, claim to be compliant - although it's fudged on most of their "help" pages.

                  A data storage strategy is important because digital storage media are inherently unreliable and all file formats and physical storage media will ultimately become obsolete.

                  Read my comments again... Thank you for your contribution to the thread.



                  Privacy Shield has only been mentioned in relation to compliance with current rules.




                  As said, I'm sure providers will update their operations to comply with the GDPR,...

                  I feel that GDPR is being misunderstood here (which is common).

                  Privacy Shield is one tick box (of many) towards GDPR compliance. It allows the "transfer" of data outside of the EU jurisdiction.

                  However, it doesnt (for example) address the needs for the Data Controller...

                  It currently allows to send data to the US legally. As said, if your provider either keeps the data in the EU or complies with Privacy Shield then there is no problem.

                  I have no doubt that storage providers will adapt to the GDPR so as to continue doing business legally in the EU. Landlords...

                  I was responding to this point.

                  And said


                  Many landlords store data on their phones, laptops and PCs.
                  They don't have a data strategy in place, they just have documents and files that hold personal data.
                  Those are often connected to a cloud service automatically...
