    On the Editor's last post, I would just say it is best just to say you are serving notice under Section 21, and not to be any more detailed than that.

        Which is, IMHO, throwing the baby out with the bathwater. I mean that it isn't the best way to keep good tenants. I know it's pants for greengriff to have lost like this but surely if a landlord wants to carry on letting then they need to keep the good tenants just as much has they need to evict the bad ones. Speaking as a good tenant I would not be able to settle in when I've been given notice indicating I've most likely got only six months in the property. I wouldn't even bother unpacking and would be pretty miffed in probably having to move again and in having that uncertainty hanging around.

          reply to: theartfullodger - the question relates to the agent's commission - the contracts are for one year or more and whether the agent should charge commission of a tenant stays longer than a year

          reply to Andrew Dodd - I think you've misunderstood. As I mentioned the house has been let since 2006 - the agent finds the tenants and secures the rental amount, draws up the contract - it's a successful operation. My query related to the period the agent wants to charge commission on. That's what...

          I use an estate agent on a tenant find basis with no management but always interview each of the prospective tenants who pass the tests, i pay 1 months rent as their fee and that is it, if the tenancy lasts 1 year or 10 years i pay that one fee and that is it. Anything else i would not accept.

          So either do it yourself, no agent, or specify 6 months then rolling periodic.

          Can I ask advice on this matter. I've had a property in London since 2006 which is rented. Whichever estate agent I use, they all want to charge a letting fee (let only not managed) on the whole term. Tenants often sign for more than a year and the estate agent is keen to charge a commission for each...

          Why exactly do you want to use an agent for a Let only non-managed?

          The most critical bit of the process which you should be doing yourself (even for fully managed) you are devolving to others. Will end badly....

          I really would be grateful if someone could please comment on my above post ;-

          1) Can you make an amendment to the existing tenancy agreement removing the estate agents as managing agents?

          2) if the estate agents will not amend the existing agreement and still say a new tenancy...

          by Cotton
          for a s21 to be valid i need to give the tenant the gas certifcate, epc, eicr and the 'how to rent' guide before occupation

          Being a DSS tenant and not having access to their details prior to occupation, I emailed these documents to the council weeks before the tenant took occupancy at the...
