  • Credible tenants: middle-aged, unemployed, able to pay?

    Hi all,

    A quick question aimed at landlords, this is just to see what kind of reaction we may receive.

    Would you consider a couple (early fifties) as tenants that are:

    1.Currently unemployed – but actively seeking employment, in receipt of two pensions totalling £660.00 per month and housing benefit (not on Income support).

    2.Able to pay a few months rent plus bond upfront and provide a guarantor

    I would appreciate any feedback, thank you in advance!

    If you have a credible guarantor I wouldn't have thought you'd have too much problem.

      Hi Ericthelobster,

      thanks for your speedy reply, yes we have a very credible guarantor. That has put our minds at rest! Thanks again.

        I can't see any major issues with this sitatuation. I have taken on tenants in much worse circumstances. As long as they are 'All right' as people ( if you know what I mean ) then you shouldn't have any problems.

          • Prospective Tenant NOT viewing Property
            Guby
            When a prospective TT is located overseas and is viewing the property through a 3rd party (friend; family member; other agent) what implications or risks could be for the LL.

            Could it be possible that after the overseas TT move in the property to start a long list of complaints as the property...

          • Ending tenancy early / returning advance rent
            purpleangel
            Landlord has served me with S21 to leave property by 10 September. 12 month AST in England. Tenancy has been difficult last few months, major delays in repairs and I am still waiting to be refunded for a locksmith call out a month ago. I paid 12 months rent in advance due to having CCJs.

            ...

            You are right, I have no idea why I put the return rent part, and I didn't explain it very well did I?

            My point was, he can't force the tenant out before the 10th.

            If the OP agreed to sign a deed of surrender, on the condition the rent for that period was returned, would be...

            I am a landlord of a 2 bed end terrace, the property is owned out right. I am registered Disabled and this was the main reason I decided to rent my property out. As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

            It doesnt matter who requested to go to EON. It could have (probably was) the previous tenant, who paid all the bills.

            Monday - tenants inform me they have no water. I'm away so advise them to ask neighbours and call water company as that's what it sounds like. I am right, water later restored.

            Tuesday - tenant informs me water is coming through her ceiling (in huge storm we had 2 weeks ago) I advise...

            This doesn't make sense to me. If it is just a central heating boiler, it will either be, the old, open vent type of system, or a sealed system.

            For an open vent system, the feed pressure will be limited by the height of the header tank, and any over pressure will cause it to pump over,...

            Hi there, Just one more question and I don't know if you've already covered this or not. But will there be a paper trail or something going back to say who first introduced E.on to my property. Because the reason I ask is that some where along the line E.on was instructed by someone to supply energy...

            I know this seems like a very silly and novice question to those of you who are experienced Landlords, but I have to ask.

            I am about to start advertising my first property to Let and I will be managing it myself. The problem I have is, I just don’t know what order the tenant finding process...

            I started out about four years ago in he same position. I also chose not to use a LA. I joined NLA and read just about every post on this forum, whether it appeared relevant or not. I wrote a business plan, which proved invaluable and kept me focused on what I was trying to achieve.

            I advertised...
