    I would first of all see if the lender you currently have your BTL if they do any residential mortgages, simply looking on their website, if they do then this may be good news as they may transfer you over onto a residential mortgage. If they don't then you need to speak with a mortgage broker who can...

    I have only just realized the pickle I have got myself into. And would like some advice.

    In Jan/Feb 2021 I split up with my long term partner and moved out. My flat (which I lived in originally) which was previously let out to a tennant was empty and so I moved back in as I had nowhere...

    Speak to an independent mortgage broker before doing anything.

    It's an unintentional mistake.

    I wouldn't, but it does depend on what type of dog.
    You should assume your carpets will all need replacing.

    My tenant has asked if he can get a dog. Where do I stand on this ?...

    The lender won't repossess initially.
    If they're unhappy, they'll "ask" for the mortgage to be repaid, they'll only repossess if you can't repay the mortgage.

    There's a risk you'll be blacklisted anyway.

    Assuming it's an AST (STA's are Scottish)...
    You don't have to renew the tenancy, just let it become periodic.
    And, you're right, don't renew it.

    To repossess, you'll either have to attend court or pay a solicitor to do so on your behalf.

    If the tenant doesn't owe...

    by Noisette
    Hello, I'm hoping to clarify a few points with landlords who've had experience of non-payment of rent and Section 8 notice. Background: We emigrated in 2007. UK house sale fell through, but we've had good tenants under an STA renewed annually since 2012. In summer 2020, they had difficulties paying...

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah this sounds like the right thing to do.

    Thankfully I have enough in investments to pay off this property (flat) otherwise I'd be really panicking. Worse case it they tried to repo i could cash eveything out and pay to keep the property.

    Really don't...

    Paragraphs.

    Do you have paperwork from HMRC permitting tenants not to deduct 20% rent for taxman? (Required for non-uk-resident landlords)

    Think (hope) you mean AST not STA.

    There's almost always no evictions over Xmas. (Court practice).

    Have you...
