    Thanks Jeffrey, will look into that. We have a meeting with them tonight at 5pm. If he doesn't come up with the deposit we will serve it on him.
    Good.
    By the way, you could add ground 12 (Breach of non-rent obligation: failure to pay deposit on time).

    Wonder if anyone has any advice for me. We have recently took our properties back from a LA.

But we have one tenant who has been a pain in the perverbial. They are paid hb direct to themselves. It took us over 2 weeks in dribs and drabs to get the rent. We have been waiting about 3 weeks for the deposit to which we still haven't got. Their AST runs out in August so we are now over the 2 months for a S21. Everytime we try to speak to them the guy is totally cocky and he is really wierd. It is always in a couple of days. If it comes to it and we have had enough of them, what is the best way of getting rid of them?
    Serve s.8 Notice on grounds 10 and 11- waiting time is only two weeks before you can start proceedings.

    It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

    I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
    I do not intend to live at the property
    Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
    As its...

    I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

    Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

    If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

    That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

    The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
    The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...

    I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

    You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

    I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

    I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
