  • Repairs to do, tenants moving out
    Newbiell74
    I need to get my property fully rewired. It will take 1-2 weeks for all the work to be done and hey will have to move out. My letting agent has advised not to charge rent this month which we haven’t. Is this right? Do I also need to pay for hotel bill too? With the worms being carried out and covering...

    Since you need your tenants cooperation to dig you out of the hole of not complying with electric laws (see other thread, next time please don't start a fresh thread) you pretty much have no alternative than paying for other accomodation, indeed a smart tenant (they might be viewing, it's a free open...

    Oh! Not sure about Scotland, but I thought the procedure was they continue to pay rent, you can choose to reduce it, and you provide alternative accommodation.

    Hopefully someone versed in Scottish law will be along... good luck

  • Lodger moving out without notice
    Suzcon
    Hi, looking for some advice. My lodger has lived with me for 3 years, since October her boyfriend has been staying 6 nights a week. I spoke to her about it in November & she said she would “bear it in mind”.
    I have now asked her to move out. She asked what her notice period was & I...

    I say again, you want the lodger to leave,
    You MUST have the lodger leave.
    You must have her boyfriend leave also.
    she is leaving.

    You have achieved your objective.

    If she loses the new place because you demand rent according to your verbal agreements, she
    ...

    Thanks for all the conflicting info! Citizens Advice agree that a common law tenant needs to give reasonable notice which is 28 days.
    Also, I haven’t “evicted” her as such, my circumstances have changed & I explained this to her & she had no problem at all & asked again what...

    1. You want your lodger out.
    2. You have had 3 years of rent.
    3. Give the deposit back, less for any damge, and JOB DONE

    But no, you want MORE rent even though you want your tenant OUT.
    Go to number 1, and repeat.

    About 100 miles north east of that. But that would be around 3 hours by car - so about as long as it takes me to drive from London to Leeds.

    Guess it depends on the definition of "better" -- mine would involve less bloody interference, meddling, nannying and pseudo-protection...

    Think almost all resident landlords and most lodgers don't understand court requirement.

    Some things (IMHO) re LL/T law are better in Scotland than Engerland, some v v.

    Which bit of the Highlands Sandy? My properties are in Lochaber...

    Ahhh.. I missed the Scottish bit in my (spam trapped) response.....
    Why on earth would anyone take on a lodger in Scotland if they have to get a court degree to eject a malign abusive person from their own home? Good grief -- legislators haven't a friggin clue (nor any basic human compassion or...
