    Hi JP Keats, i pay via a bank transfer. Whilst I don’t have much law experience, I have started to retain an audit trail of any WhatsApp messages asking for help etc and will start keeping a log of any potential harassment. Thanks again for your help....

    I am hoping that someone can help.

    I have lived in a top floor flat above my landlady/landlord for 7 years. I do not share any facilities (my flat has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room). There is a lock on the door to my flat.

    Since my landlord passed away (3 years...

    How have you been paying rent? Hopefully bank transfer or some other way which allows you to prove you paid.

    As above AST. Needs court to evict you. Any issues call Shelter 0808 800 4444 or police.

    Keep a written log of any harassment and any evidence.

    Hi JP Keats and thanks,

    I have to go through the hallway of my landlady’s home to access my flat. My tenancy agreement states I will have access at all times. My late landlord was the initial signatory on the agreement. I pay my rent into my landlady’s bank account each month by bank...

    by jpkeates
    The best time to sign a tenancy agreement is when the property is ready to be moved into by the tenant.
    It doesn't have to be done on the actual day, but it's quite common.

    By all means give a tenant a copy of what you'll want them to sign, so they can query anything they're concerned...

  • Signing tenancy agreement in advance and handover of keys
    by bengal
    How soon in advance of tenancy can the agreement be signed? in this case it would be around 4 weeks in advance of tenancy start date.
    Is signing of agreement in advance a good alternative to a holding deposit? (in that it gives more certainty to the tenant?)
    When should keys be handed over...

    Do you have a written tenancy agreement, and if so, who is named on it as landlord?
    Who do you pay the rent to?

    1) I suspect you have an AST. Do you have to travel through your landlord's property to come in and out of your own?
    2) If it is an AST, it means that anyone who wanted...

    Thanks Blinko, the contract states that it is an agreement on a tenancy for that, and that I have possession of the flat and access to it at all time. It is not very long at all and does not specifically mention an AST.

    My landlady’s children have POA (joint I believe). They were not...

    1. What does your agreement say, it sounds like an AST as you do not share facilities and their is a lock on the door.
    2. AST much stronger rights eg they must go to court to obtain permission to remove you, if lodger just give notice
    3. He can start eviction proceeds (can start any time)...

    Because you are making two different claims for the same debt.

    And the possession hearing can decide to wait until the debt issue is resolved elsewhere if it chooses to....
