  • Rent increases.
    bobcat
    Hi everyone.
    I need some advice about how best to approach rent increases. I own a property with good tenants who look after the house, they have been in the house for about 4 years. The market rent is around £675 but I am charging £595 so £80 less a month partly because I charged a bit less...

    work out inflation over the period, and if your increase is less than tha, then put it in the letter for comparison.

    My view is that you do tenants no favours by charging below market rent as they just develop unrealistic expectations and feel trapped when they realise they cant afford to move but need to. They also see you as a soft touch and that's not a good look for a landlord. I would start to increase each year...

  • Broken window, who should pay T or L.
    marco1733
    So my friends and I have recently moved into a house, we are students and this is our first year of renting a property. The building itself is quite old and we've already had problems such as broken lights and damp. We also do not have the best relationship with our landlord as we've asked for these...

    At what height was the bottom of this window, "normal" window height or floor height?

    If floor height, then I believe it is required to have toughened glass, which is harder to break.

  • Energy efficiency certificate

    I am in the process of letting out a house to a new tenant, I cant seem to find my enegry efficiency cert, how do I go about getting an energy efficiency certificate?

    Was it supposed to be given to me by the estate agents when I purchased the house a few years back,
    or did the current...

    I don't think you are even allowed to advertise it for rent without a valid certificate. However, unlike the gas one, you can still provide it late for a section 21 eviction.

    It was a C. Yes im going to try and get it done asap before the new tenant moves in.
    Also the gas cert was done in jan, so is valid till jan 2020, but will that be needed for a new tenant right away as well?

    My advice would be to seriously think about increasing, my experience is have a tenant paying on time and looks after the property is worth £10 pm increase. The market has now changed for T's therefore with fees now removed they can move more freely without thinking of the additional costs. Also if...

    What was the rating of the property on the expired certificate, Any property below an E rating can't be rented out. I would get the certificate completed as soon as possible and supply this to your tenant, get them to sign that they have received it as well as proof.
