  • Tenants and Sky/Virgin etc
    PotatoHead
    I've had several different tenants rent my house in the past few years, each tends to stay about a year (fairly transient area).

    Each one has asked to change broadband/tv/phone provider, one did it without asking. The result is Sky/Virgin/BT drilling new holes each year into my walls to...

    There have always been clauses to that effect in my TAs. However, having spelt that out to tenants at signing, many will ignore. Expect to be awarded peanuts from deposit.

    Recently had another dish installed adjacent to the existing at a property I own. Tenant has (without permission) dish...

    Hi, new LL to this forum. I rented a property to 2 tenants on an Assured Shorthold tenancy on 24 March 2018. I didn't supply an EPC or checklist. It was rented in London and there was no initial fixed term. Rent due 24th of each month and a deposit paid. OK, now one tenant wants to have the whole flat....

    If they're joint tenants, you can only end the tenancy for both of them (notice and court will be required if one of them is reluctant to go).
    You can supply the EPC and How to Rent guide before serving notice (but make sure the How to Rent guide is the right version).

    The tenant...

    Funny enough we only got fibre a year ago on our road. I was told for years we wouldn't get it because it would cause too much chaos but as there are a lot of new builds in the area the street eventually got it along with other stuff but its been a nightmare shutting down the roads every 5 mins. I...

  • tenant with 3 kids

    Hi,
    My current tenant has 2 kids and living in my 2 bed flat.
    the kids are a 5 years old girl and a 6 months old baby boy.
    recently, I came to know that the tenant’s wife is pregnant.
    by law, can they stay in 2 bed flat with 3 kids?

    Please advise.
    Thanks...

    Sorry haven't read the full thread re. overcrowding but here's my story:

    Couple rented my 2 bed with 2 children working part LHA. They really wanted a council house from day 1. Council advised to find accommodation in PRS and they were placed low down on waiting list.

    Year...

    EPC certainly was - to be underway prior to advertising it.

    You might find it impossible to evict using s21. Is there an EPC - certainly get one & serve on tenants. Are you sure everything else OK??? see
