    My ex tenant signed a short assured lease in 2011. At the time my mother was the owner of the flat and I was the agent, I signed as power of attorney, tenant only ever dealt with me. Since then my mum has died and i have become the owner of the flat. I have also moved house. I advised the tenant at...

    Albeit warbling as you say, you do need to give the tenant formal notice of change of landlord and be able to prove this. If you cannot do that it will greatly complicate your ability to evict the tenant and is also an offense that can attract a hefty (? £2500) penalty.

    So yes the tenant...

    I went to view a house Feb 12 2018 and decided to put my interest into the agency. In the advert online it stated move in was available Feb 27 2018 and if I signed up and moved in before March 1St there is 50 pound off first month boom result.
    I got a call on Tuesday to say that there was no...

    I'm not saying it's a scam, it's a come on.

    Not illegal as such,

    Just because it's a big name company doesn't mean they won't use these tactics to try and draw you in.
    It's a pretty common tactic to get you looking with them.

    And of course it's always the...

    Hi,

    My wife is in a difficult situation. She rents a property to her daughter via an agency and all she gets is the basic 1 person under-35 amount of LHA. However, Daughter now has a partner and baby so as we understand it, she is entitled to a helluva lot more. The problem is that mother...

    Some parents "support" their kids by doing all they can to ensure they stand on their own 2 feet.

    Artful, father of 3 hard-working sons (and thus very privileged etc etc)

    Best wishes to all

    I have one flat in Scotland. In 2011 I rented it on a short assured lease to a single woman. She stayed there until last week. I last visited in july 2017 and told her to clean the place which looked filthy but otherwise intact. Her rent was late this month and i contacted her, i received a garbled...

    Thanks to all, will see how I feel in a few weeks, also see if i get anything from the father. Re telling her to clean the place, had she actually paid me any attention and done so perhaps there would not be an infestation of mice today for me to deal with. I've been good to her and tried to be a responsible...

    I agree it may be unwise to make such a comment but if one of my tenants were living in filth I'd have no qualms but to tell them to clean it up....
