  • Reply to My tenant lied to me
    by nukecad
    As it's UC then as a landlord you need to submit a form UC47 to apply to the DWP for a 'Managed Payments to Landlord', which can include an amount for arrears.
    However any repayment of arrears granted will be on a 'pay back at so much a month' basis.

    UC47's can now be submitted online....

  • My tenant lied to me
    by Uklondoner
    My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

    by endymion
    Well, partly, but mainly I'm considering whether the sheds would have to be explicitly excluded from the tenancy in the AST. It's a question of what would be considered the default position in law....

  • Access to sheds
    by endymion
    Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

  • Reply to Access to sheds
    by endymion
    Interesting. I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. Nonetheless, if the deeds stipulate that the sheds are part of the flat, rather than communal, surely that's quite a different matter....

    I believe the OP is coming from the position of:
    • The LL has granted us the right, beyond the tenancy agreement, to use two sheds.
    • Would the law consider that having granted that use, the LL cannot unilaterally withdraw the use of those sheds?

    by MdeB
    The Government guidance suggests not (under "What will the report show?").
    C1, C2 and F need action; C3 does not (C3 is "safe but not to current standards for new installations"...

  • Electrical Safety Certificate EICR
    by Ozzie11
    Hi

    I noticed a new law means landlords need to arrange an EICR for new tenancies after July 2020 or before April 2021.

    Please can I get some advice on this? I started a tenancy in May 2020 - this is due to expire in November 2020. However it is likely the tenancy will be renewed...

    There may or may not be a lease in that case. But there might be. If there is a lease, then it makes no difference that the lessee and freeholder happen to be the same people. If there are no leases, I cannot see that you have any particular rights beyond the flat that you lease. The presumption in...

    Yes, the tenants have to take reasonable steps.

    But the OP didn't mention fans or ventilation and did mention opening the windows "when" bathing or cooking....
