      A good competition would be to reduce the legislation, as it applies to landlords, to one accurate, intelligible paragraph.

        The regulations are subject to quantum uncertainty.
        By studying them, you cause them to change.

          Hey, steady on, there's at least 100 items of legislation impacting landlords (... plus case law....), and that''s just England: How would the legal profession survive if the law was simple, in one paragraph? What would we do with all those unemployed Judges and court staff??**

            If you are a landlord and are not 100% confident that you know what to do with a tenancy deposit when you receive it and within what time limits, do not accept tenancy deposits.

              by jpkeates
              You have every right to the information you want to see and to rent to whoever you want (provided its not discriminatory on the basis of legally protected characteristics).

              You may find it hard to persuade an agent of that, in practice.
              So make sure it's made clear to them before...

              Morning, we are just finishing renovations on a BTL property and hope to let it out shortly via a letting agent.

              As landlords, do we have any say over who can rent the property from us? I’m a bit concerned about letting to someone on furlough, in case they are made redundant at the end...

              I'm not sure that the issues around pay for nurses is confined to the left wing.

              The number of people made homeless as a result of legal processes is well known, what isn't known is the level of non-legal activity and the number of people who leave their homes as a result of simply being...

              The guttering and chimney was checked with no apparent problem. The rooms have been checked for rising damp and penetrating damp by the architect and reporting non of these are visable. We will have a surveyor report made and thanks for all your help. Im petty sure we are not liable....

              Hi
              We bought a house which had an excellent surveyors report with no problems at all. The home report had number one next to all the boxes. The house was in tip top condition.
              We stayed in the property from November to march without any problems.

              we decided to rent out the property...

              by jpkeates
              If the tenant declines reasonable access to do work, generally your obligation to do the work is also set aside.

              I'd (ideally) talk to the tenant or write to them confirming that you understand that they're working from home, but that doesn't mean that you can guarantee that work that needs...

              Wondered if anyone can clarify where I stand needing to have electrical maintenance carried out on a rental property where tenants work from home due to COVID. The electrician I am using only works weekdays but my tenants have said this work cannot take place during the week as they can’t have the...

              jpkeates the Govt may not have an issue with the resumption of evictions, but will doubtless get leant on by the left-wing media (as they are currently over pay rises for nurses); making out that there are a lot of folks about to get turfed out onto the streets (not true, if I’ve interpreted your...

              Are we saying that the last update was over 50 years ago? I agree with Bob and think you should check the gutters and chimney flashings. A constant ingress of water would build up to be a problem particularly without heat and ventilation to get rid of it. I would be looking at the room where damage...
