    You should definitely have cleaned up your pet's deposits, surely?


      Creeper from flat below
      There's not a lot worse than a creepy neighbour.


        I have found over 50+ silverfish within my premises, which have put a strain on my mental health
        Crikey. I must be completely bonkers then. My house has had them since I've lived here.


          They took 6months managing fees starking in may.
          Bare ***ed cheek.

            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).


              I can't imagine why fellow landlords indulge the people posting threads like this. Mischief?
              Hi, me again. I got thinking about my deposit so looked up the PI requirements and I'm not sure if my landlord fulfilled them properly. It was put into DPS custodial in June 2017. I didn't receive a certificate from the landlord or any terms and conditions, should I have? Thanks


                somebody said that my agent could be lying to me that certainly isn't the case
                Because agents never lie. (sarc)

                  Under the Housing Act 2004, a household comprises:
                  • a single person
                  • co-habiting couples (whether or not of the opposite sex)
                  • a family (including foster children and children being cared for) and current domestic employees.
                  From discussions with one particular council it is quite clear that they take a different view but once challenged admit that they might indeed be mistaken and encourage landlords to make contact in order that the matter can be fully appraised.
                  Oh, well there's the answer...

                  You can have as many lodgers as you like, as long as you say you are 'fostering' them.

                  If anyone points out they look a bit old to be foster children, simply say they are child migrants.

                        22-08-2018, 11:13 AM
                        Hi, I've never rented to LHA tenants before, so where do I begin? Where do I start?
                        Place an advert stating in bold;

                        "Strictly No LHA, No DSS, No DHSS, No DWP, No HB, No UC, No benefits, Working tenants only".

                        Put down your personal contact details.

                        You'll get dozens of enquiries asking if you take on LHA.

                          Certain tenants think that paying any rent at all is a pain.

                            Crikey. Are the neighbours that bad?


                              I'm looking at buying another buy to let but one of my houses which has the same tenant of 8 years is now on periodic .I can not find it

                              Did you not go to see it before you bought it? Maybe google the address.

                                  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....

                                  Just been over to my friend's, as he asked for more water softener salt. I went in the bathroom to wash my hands and noticed the tap was loose. 'Why didn't you tell me your tap was broken?' I said.

                                  'Oh, I didn't want to bother you'.

                                  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...

                                  What's wrong is that there is absolutely zero evidence that the killer did anything at all because of Brexit.

                                  Jo Cox was killed while campaining during the referendum, but there's nothing to suggest that the murder was anything other than an act of terror.

                                  There really is an extreme level of determination (or cognitive dissonance) involved in refusing to accept that the murder of Jo Cox was influenced by Brexit.
                                  It is the opposite of 'common sense' to refuse to see this.

                                  I really don't see why anyone would just accept this, since it...
