    However stupid.
    When I called them, they were fairly neutral but did kind of laugh when I said it was ridiculous. I said that I would replace it if I can't find it, they said 'that would be really resourceful of me' - thank you for the compliment.

      No wonder some people think landlords and agents are patronising and anti-tenant.

      I can't really apologise on behalf of my profession, but sometimes wish I could.
      There are d1ckheads everywhere, but laarge numbers of them do seem to gravitate to letting out property.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        I have no doubt the DPS will not deal properly with an issue of matched items. But my feeling is they should.

        I have a related problem in one property - there are a pair of identical reasonably expensive light fittings in a lounge. They are exactly matched, and the design of the place is such that there will be a significant aesthetic loss if they were not matched. The tenant managed to smash one (with a ladder).

        I cannot find the same fitting. It seems to me quite right that the adjudicated loss should be greater than just any random (even similarly priced) single light fitting.

          In that case as a tenant, I would expect to replace exactly or pay the amount required in order to do so.

          The lawnmower broke in the summer and that same day I went out and got a new one to replace it. It's frustrating as we clearly show we are respectful tenants! It clearly doesn't pay to be respectful to our landlord.

            I've had good landlords too, so no need to apologise!

            Perhaps it's the word 'lord' that goes to some people's heads, ha

              I find that some tenants are so put off by my throne of tenant's skulls that they forget to bow properly.

                Have a look on website below for similar door knobs.

                  Not quite. The LL can apply to Court for Right of Access & ask Court to apply costs against T.

                  I think you need a valid EPC before the Property can be advertised for sale/rent, but not for an eviction.

                  I have a single property which I have owned since 1998. I currently have had the same tennent for about 10 years. When she began the tennency there was no requirement to have an epc and I was unaware that I needed one! I have decided to sell the property as I am now 70 years old and want the capital....

                  Not quite correct. If the tenant refuses upgrades, which is his/her right this is a ground to apply for exemption...

                  This is not likely to be valid or easy employed. It does not sound like a deed. What witnesses were there? How many witnesses and who were they? Do you have proof of ID for the Guarantor and witnesses?

                  But yes, they are most likely chancers using the law to try to diddle you.

                  Hi. I am a fairly new landlord and I only own one property. About a month ago I reached out to my tenants asking if they were okay and if they wanted to get in contact with me please do. Three days later they contacted me to ask for a massive reduction in the rent asking for 35% off. I have no issues...

                  Then unfortunately, you will have difficulty enforcing the guarantee (unless your guarantor is named as a tenant or the tenancy agreement is executed as a deed). The reason for that is because

                  With your tenancy agreement
                  • You give the tenants a tenancy, they give you rent (consideration)
                  • Guarantor

                  Ps I’m unable to edit the original. Sorry so long winded. I have a visual impairment & have to use voice dictation. It’s awful!...

                  To be clear: the guarantor signed the contract which has a section called The Guarantor which clearly lays out his/her legal liabilities. In this case, he is liable for all the rent not just for his nephews. I’m sure they would not want this to fall to him. They have been very good tenants so far....
