    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.

              I've not had one in writing yet, in decades of letting.

                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?

                          The English cannot handle the Welsh rain! I should know, I am English and living in Wales!

                            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?

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

                                  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.

                                  That's great.

                                  Still no meaningful and definitive list of the proposed benefits anywhere.
                                  Even if only so that in, say, a decade, we can check to see if they've been achieved.

                                  And, given that there are significant concerns about leaving (which aren't countered by labelling...
