  • Reply to Landlord in Distress
    by AndrewDod
    Um... I did this for my day job. And I am fairly mathematically astute to say the least. There are many particularly bad years that take it way above the 20K figure - in fact this is routine, and many say under-counted. So no, maybe you should actually read the reports before throwing out trite blather....

    by Roydravid
    Hello ,

    My tenant has stopped paying the rent on from the 5th of MArch 2020. This was the first month they stopped the rent . It is a period tenancy after one year tenancy agreement in 2018.
    The Tenant has changed the locks and denied access for inspection and essential works . ...

    You can ask for the rent to be paid in advance, but it has to be the rent, not an extra deposit.
    So you can't ask for six months payment and then demand a rent payment in month 2.

    Theoretically the five month's deposit paid in advance meets the definition of a tenancy deposit, but...

  • Advice on new tenancy
    by AnnaJJJ
    I am just about to rent a flat to a family. The tenants have paid a holding deposit but we've not yet signed contracts. After paying the holding deposit the tenants have now advised that they may be laid off with the 80% furlough agreement. There is only one salary in the family. They've approached...

    Are you allowed to charge 6 months rent up front? doesn't that come under additional fees thing over and above 5 week deposit and 1 month rent?...

    As noted, issuing section 8 undermines your argument that this is not an AST.

    I think this is test case material, but it seems to me that it violates the assumptions on the nature of lodgers, so this is more about whether or not the mother is an excluded landlord.

    Hi

    I have rented my mother’s house out to 2 x lodgers on my mother’s behalf as she has been hospitalised due to mental medical condition. A lodger agreement was given to them as she was expected to return back in few weeks’ time. However situation had changed and she had to live out...

    I would involve a solicitor, because you're making a bad situation worse.

    The other occupant is almost certainly a lodger, so the s8 notice isn't valid.
    If the other occupant is actually a tenant (which, thankfully, I don't think they are), your mother has committed a criminal offence...

    It would probably need a court to decide this and you may have shot yourself in the foot with that s8 notice, which could be seen as an acknowledgement that they have a tenancy not a licence. However, if you are worried about your mothers mental health with this person in residence, I think I would...
