    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.

            Saying nothing...
            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.

                                  You guys know I have been renovating a flat since March. The first month, I kept hearing a 'peep' noise every few minutes, so I bought a new battery for the mains linked smoke alarm. However, I still heard the 'peep' and came to the conculsion that it is next door's smoke alarm. Surprising, since the...

                                  Has he considered using a dehumidifier? I switched my tumble dryer for one a few years ago, much more energy efficient plus useful for general humidity control during winter. My clothes will dry within 5-6 hours. Can't stand that musty smell from clothes being damp too long...

                                  My friend who rented a flat from me recently tells me he will not use the tumble drier, as it is very expensive, and will not put clothes out on the line as someone will steal them.

                                  'No-one will steal your sh*t!' I told him.

                                  It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

                                  Cats "soften" where they sleep with their claws.
                                  You can't train them not to, and declawing is inhumane.

                                  You can't fully house train cats or dogs.
                                  You can be 99% confident, but once there's been an accident, that spot is then OK from then on.

                                  You'll likely know better than most that - just like humans - cats and dogs vary as individuals. Just as some people will be hard to educate in school or work with, some pets will learn/behave better than others and no one say 100% that a cat or dog will or won't cause damage. Hence there will always...
