    Yes, it's a HMO so you need things like fire doors and hardwired alarms .

  • 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.

    There's nothing wrong with working based on texts.

    The solution to the situation outlined in the quote is to replace "tenant refuses to sign deed" with "Landlord confirms to tenant that they have accepted their offer to surrender the tenancy".
    Then the landlord...

    Hi everyone I had a real difficult tenant and they have left and owe me thousands. Which doubt I will see.

    they have left a TV worth about £15 and and normally I would never do this but seeing it as I'm not going to get any money out them

    If his notice is valid, when it expires the tenancy ends.
    You could seek possession through the courts without the long delays imposed by the need for notices served by a landlord, but the eviction stay would still apply.

    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...

    by landlord-man
    I wouldn't have told the LA that "I refuse to complete x, y or z" as the word REFUSE lodges a negative thought in their heads lol - and they go on auto-pilot thinking the worst - which is what happened in your case.

    I would have offered to provide a basic 2 sentence response if...

  • 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...

    Good points that the law is biased towards tenants .

    But it still leaves us landlords in an impossible situation.

    Eg tenant texts to say moving out
    tenant empties property
    tenant refused to sign deed
    Landlord enters empty property
    landlord is sued...

    Sorry you're right it's the section 8 whereby we would look to accelerate the tenant vacating the property.

    I have other HMO's in the city. As said above, this as c4 planning permission as the area is under article 4. It doesn't however require a HMO license.

    Regarding the...
