      Hi

      I'm a landlord that owns a house in Sterling, Scotland. My lender is Natwest which is a UK based bank. ...........
      There is no place called Sterling in Scotland, although there is a Stirling. Well, it would be in Sterling wouldn't it, presumably it will in future be in Euros....

        I would then repossess the property in your shoes.
        Remarkably precise advice for someone,
        legal and fashion combined.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

            Since I was given a Section 21 notice I've been getting a lot of distraction and harassment. Mainly very loud classical music playing next to a partition wall (the Landlord lives next door).
            Is your next door neighbour called Hippogriff?

                Thanks: I have been aware of the "original" meaning for well over 40 years. But 'merkin for "American" is accepted usage in some quarters...see

                  The whole point of this thread is about double meanings, often thrown up by predictive text - thats what often makes things humerus. (and tickles your funny bone).

                    Still the rent wasn't paid so I have tried to contact her yesterday and today with no repose.
                    Yes. I wouldn't be laid back about not getting the rent.

                      1. Is there any other form of defence? e.g. L has been abducted before T moves in, etc.
                      Was it T who abducted you?

                        Being a landlord seems to be great example of the 80-20 rule. Twenty percent of the tenants generate 90% of the work.
                        Wouldn't that be the 90-20 rule?

                                  I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                                  I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

                                  It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

                                  My friend's BMW is still at the garage, so he has been using his old Audi A6 automatic estate.

                                  He rang me this afternoon: Could I give him a lift to pick up his wife from work, as the Audi was now playing up? The symptoms he described sounded like a binding handbrake, so I suggested I put...

                                  And the EU cannot leave the withdrawal agreement without the UK's permission - the arrangement works both ways.
                                  But, both the UK and the EU get to leave the withdrawal agreement once a more permanent trade deal of some type has been agreed (or if the transition period comes to an end without a...

                                  Looks like the government is on the verge of repatriating 150,000 holidaymakers over the next 48 hours and yet people seem to think they're not capable of putting food or medicine on the shelves after we leave the EU.

                                  Even if only so that in, say, a decade, we can check to see if they've been achieved.
