    well the phonecalls and texts wouldn't stop. So we drove and posted the keys to the original agent who wrote up the agreement, sent a message to LL telling them where the keys were and everything has gone quiet.
    A rubbish container we put outside the property for collection on the 30th (plastic type shed box thing) has vanished, neighbours inform us LL was seen putting it into his van late at night on the 29th... so during the mad texting/calling.

    Anyway, we are happy as larks and hopefully the old goat will keep quiet and we can now live our lives in peace, without mold and with a working stove! lol


      While you're laughing out loud, spare a thought for his next victim! If you have any civic responsibility you will sue this LL for non-protection of your deposit. If you don't want the money or the hassle just get a no-win, no-fee lawyer to do it and they will end up with most of the funds, but at least this landlord will get a dose of reality



        This landlord needs to learn how to do things right: Sue him!
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


          I may just do the now win no fee thing..

          Perhaps a LBA might push him into returning my deposit but I think because I left without paying October rent I have shot my foot off with that one.


            He could counterclaim for that rental period to offset any penalty but you'd probably still be awarded something.

            Of course if you hire solicitors it'd eat into that award fairly quickly...

              Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

              Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

              Sarah's right of...

              Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

              I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

              There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
              That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

              About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

              I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

              I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

              No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.


              s8 not an issue
