  • Reply to Preaction protocol for rent arrears
    by jpkeates
    There's nothing about disrepair that allows a tenant to withhold rent.

    To succeed totally in a counter claim, they'd have to be able to claim a loss that was equivalent to the rent owed, which would be difficult unless the whole property was uninhabitable.
    They can probably argue...

  • Preaction protocol for rent arrears
    by GivemylovetoJudy
    I have read that I am obliged by the Court to follow the preaction protocol before issuing proceedings. The document seems a load of old tosh.

    I need to bring a MCOL against a tenant who ran off leaving £16,000 rent arrears.

    The tenant sent me an email saying that if I sued...

  • Reply to Is it an HMO
    by jpkeates
    Yes, it's an HMO, but an AST is fine.
    It may not need to be licensed, but the regulations are broadly the same anyway.

  • Is it an HMO
    by Enyala
    House has been let to 4 tenants on an AST. They are a couple, plus two single friends. Does this mean it should be an HMO and should not have been let on a AST basis? Your feedback would be much appreciated. TIA.

  • Reply to Reference payment
    by jpkeates
    I don't give references and always explain why.
    I've always wondered if my agents do and don't tell me about it!...

  • Reference payment
    by jase222
    Hi,
    I have a tenant who's leaving shortly and a letting agent sent through letter asking for a reference for the tenant, in the letter there was also 4 pages of questions about 120 to be precise.

    I know it will take best part of a hour as quite a few are detailed and require looking...

  • Reply to Problematic tenant
    by jpkeates
    Nothing can change the notice period for a s21 notice (other than a change in the law itself), anti social behaviour as grounds for a section 8 notice brings the notice period required to, essentially, two days if posted.

  • Problematic tenant
    by Sean2204
    Hi guys, new to this forum so please be kind to me. It seems a great fountain of knowledge and I was hoping some of you may be able to advise on a current predicament I have with an existing tenant.

    The tenancy commenced on 8th January 2021 on a 6 month fixed AST.

    The tenant...

  • Reply to Does Tenant Need 30 days notice?
    by nukecad
    I'd be asking why they say that they are getting less than LHA rate?

    There are a few things that could do that:
    • If the actual rent is less than LHA rate, then only the actual rent is paid. (Doesn't seem to apply here).
    • It they are subject to the benefits cap in UC it's the Housing Element

  • Does Tenant Need 30 days notice?
    by Mr. Sparkle
    I'm increasing the rent for a tenant on Universal Credit

    They have verbally agreed the rent increase (which is above the LHA rate)

    I'm sending them a letter to confirm the new amount.

    I would like the new start date for payment to be in two weeks (i.e. the new...
