  • Unpaid rent recovery
    by Buntycaws
    Hi folks, just a query about peoples experiences.

    Has anyone experienced a tenant non payment of rent, had to evict and actually got the rent money back from the tenant in the end? I don’t have this issue at present but it’s probably the number 1 thing in the back of my mind.
    ...

  • Ending Tenancy - return of keys
    by JohnMcD
    Does a tenant 'have' to return the keys to the agent or landlord, as part of a legal termination, on moving out day? My property is in Scotland, managed by a letting agent. The tenant had confirmed his moving out day in writing at the end of July , but seems to have gone a month beforehand. Thank you...

    Agent and myself are minded to let the tenancy expire as agreed in writing at the end of July. I do not expect the keys to be returned,tho obviously I'd prefer that. I'm just so glad he has vacated the property, I don't want to provoke him so that he says he has moved back in etc. And locksmiths will...

    As (I presume?) tenant's notice (or was it your "notice to leave"??) hasn't expired tenant still has tenancy to end July. In your shoes I'd wait until end July before doing anything - if only to avoid possible argument over illegal eviction etc.

    AFAIK no legal rule, agent probably...

    I shall definitely change the locks. But my agent seems to be emphasising that the tenant must return the keys before I can get access following his moving out date. I haven't found any articles that says this is a set legal rule.
    Thank you....

    Welcome to LLZ

    IMHO it's wise to change locks after any change of occupants (other than owner). Quite cheap,you never know who else they gave key copies to.

    Recently did it on mine, £13:42 and my time IIRC, Highlands. Even though more keys returned than provided several years...

  • Rent Arrears - Scotland
    by GlasgowDavid
    Hi everyone. Sorry if this seems like a daft question but I have been going round in circles looking for the answer with no success. I have a tenant who is in arrears. Basically I increased the rent via the correct notice and he didn't object in time so is now stuck with the new rent but doesn't want...

    Thanks artful - he's just being awkward. Yes, I've been in touch with him repeatedly about it. Thanks for the link, I will take another look at that. Just seemed like it should be something the Tribunal should be doing but you only seem to be able to get a payment order from them when you're also evicting....
