    1. What happens if some of the items are food, which will perish within a few days/week can you throw these away? Or do you have follow the letter of the law and keep them for up to 3 months if they owe you rent arrears? Or would you have to store them in a fridge/freezer for the duration?
    If you don't hear from the tenant after 3 months you can have yourself a feast! šŸ¤£

      Are there any?

        Autocorrect becomes political!
        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 have had problems with rent arrears and irregular payments and did get a court eviction last week. However the tenant is wanting to stay.
          And poster is going to give them a new tenancy!

            Carpet Beetles - Small Claims Court Claim
            Well I remember the haircuts, but I'm sure they were real and you can't claim they were 'rugs' even if they did look like carpets.

                If loft is excluded from tenancy then you are liable for council tax.

                      The gutter on the roof is broken therefore pouring all the rain water off the roof and onto our conservatory below which is now leaking. Iā€™ve asked them twice to get this problem fixed as it is a fire risk
                      Flamable rain?

                            I hope you haven't got 'professional' tenants in.
                            They're the only sort my agent provides.

                              Hmm. So if shade was ten years old when it broke, but it's expected to last forever, means the fraction of life lost is (forever-10years)/(forever)


                              Therefore compensation= Full cost of the shade?

                                  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...

                                  It really is not complicated. The UK cannot leave the withdrawal agreement without the EUs permission. Therefore we could be stuck in it forever if we cannot agree on all matters. The EU will decide when and if to release us. If you think that acceptable Marcomia then there is, indeed, no hope and no...

                                  Withdrawing from the EU at all is not in the best interests of the UK, but if we are going to do so (despite the fact that there are no clear benefits from leaving - at least, none that 'leave' supporters seem able to provide and justify) leaving with a withdrawal deal in place, like...

                                  But Argentina didn't go bankrupt in the sense that a company did.
                                  Argentina is still there, it recovered and has repaid most of the debt it initially defaulted on.

                                  Again, Zimbabwe is currently restructuring its currency and debt.

                                  Sorry, you are wrong.
                                  I have already stated that Argentina went bankrupt, and people could not get their cash out of the banks.

                                  Zimbabwe . In June 2019, the official inflation rate was 97.9%. Because the country is bankrupt.

                                  I know that countries pay interest on their loans (I even mentioned that in my post - that the cost of borrowing varies with the situation the country finds itself in).

                                  But the UK can't go out of business or become bankrupt like a company (and if it did start to wobble, the impact on the...

                                  If you think that countries don't have to pay interest on their loans, then you are misguided.

                                  The U.S.A. and U.K. have massive loans, with massive interest payments, which you and i are paying for.

                                  Running a country is nothing like running a business.

                                  Businesses come and go all the time, nations persist.
                                  Nations can live with perpetual debt and "trade" at a loss - the USA has a national debt of $22.5 trillion dollars.
