    Just in case any "Clever" landlords don't believe what we've been telling them here for as long as I can remember...............

    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.

        No doubt the landlord worked hard to obtain and maintain this property, and only expected the tenant to pay the rent due. The landlord may have had a morgage to pay. (the bank may have threatened him with re possession of his house that may have been put up as security)
        Opinions given are mine, They are not necessarily correct, as the more I learn the less I know, You should always seek professional help.

          There's nothing more frustrating for a landlord than a tenant not paying rent, except perhaps one that trashes the property - these are the only two requirements a landlord should ask for - pay your rent on time and look after the property.
          You can understand then how someone under extreme pressure like this landlord, perhaps with a mortgage company threatening him, to find himself on the wrong side of the law, and now with a criminal record.
          However, you've just got to be philosophical about these situations. You can guard against it as much as possible by paying attention to the most important aspect of being a landlord - tenant sceening.
          But when things go wrong, which they inevitably will if you let to enough tenants, it's just the law of averages, then you just have to grin a bear it.
          If you've got enough properties in your portfolio or some financial resources behind you, you should be able to handle it financially.
          All the more perpelxing then why someone in the property investment business is advising investor landlords to do just what this man did?
