    replied to Form 17 and associated evidence
    It will either be on the Deed submitted to HMLR (but HMLR do not record the split). The original deed will be retained by the solicitor or you, or there will be a formal trust deed. ask the solicitor. In any case Form 17 cannot be activated in retrospect, so even if you do it now it will only cover...

    Well perhaps but unlikely - tenancy contracts do not have to be signed to be valid, and this smells like a contract. If the contract (physically unsigned) specifies a rate of rent, and that rent is paid, that is pretty clear evidence of a contract....

    Who says this is a holding deposit? It sounds like a contract. Nowhere does it say holding deposit.



    Who says that is true? And in any case the tenancy was due to start "yesterday"



    I see no evidence that that is appropriate or necessary...

  • Um not really. Local councils and in particular Labour local councils are pretty much the worst freeholders, and pull the biggest and most brutal non-transparent tricks.

    But it could be. The default position is that the tenant is going to be paying rent and all costs of re-letting until an entirely suitable new tenant is found (which may be a lot more than 1 month of rent). The alternative is that the tenancy could be surrendered by mutual agreement, and under such...

  • And in any case there is no reason to think that floor area should be the basis. Your position is straightforward -- if they want to amend the lease then they seek advice from the FTT as to whether that is permissible. At the moment you do nothing and continue to act according to your lease. You would...

    replied to HELP - lease clause
    Permission is not forever -- it is just while there is permission and until someone doesn't like the fact that they are ill because there is a cat around, or they get fleas. It is not a change to the contract.

    So you are misunderstanding the problem -- yes the lease says you can have a...

  • Basic principle in 2019 is as with manky stuff in your fridge. If in doubt throw it out.

    But I would explore more - how exactly did you ask -- if it was a blatant lie then goodbye. It may have been a genuine error if you did not ask it well. Only you can know the situation. They may be...

  • That is simply not the case. It is because there is a statistically much much higher risk of being defrauded and of experiencing substantial life-altering problems if one enters this market. That does not make it a "prejudice".

    Having said that my personal prejudice is that a...

    It is not clear that this is a house -- if it is then I agree - it was called a "house" cat - but that is the only reference to house. I think it is a brand of cat....

  • It's not clear from this thread how many flats there are altogether. However it is highly dangerous to be a Director of a company where you know something is being hidden from you. If things go badly wrong (like the company gets struck off for breaches or late filing) you may well be held personally...

    It's simple. You can't have a cat. Yes, you might get permission, but that is only ever going to be temporary, until someone has a problem with it. No you are not correct that "most people would simply ignore the clause and keep their pet anyway".

    You need to find somewhere else...

  • Having said all of this, something needs to be done about abuse of these default judgements. Certain chasers for certain telephone companies appear to have deliberately served papers at incorrect addresses. It then costs the poor folk money and often destroyed careers while having CCJs erased, many...

  • [QUOTE=jpkeates;n1076669]Where you don't know the address for a person, the rule is to serve papers to that individual's "usual or last known residence."
    For a tenant that's likely to be the rental property (if they haven't given a forwarding address).

    In practice, all that...

  • I suspect most landlords here would not take a tenant claiming housing "benefit" under any circumstances. Come a change of government that might become even more important. But you might have weighed your options knowing all the risks....

  • I'm concerned about "the last known address bit" here. If this is a tenant who has recently left and has refused to give a forwarding address that might fly. However if it's a year ago and you are just serving at the address they rented I can't see how the judge is going to allow that as fair....

  • The landlord may not be the owner. He may be an irrelevant party (or even a tenant) trying to sell something that is not his to sell.

    It may however be normal.

    You could ask landlord for his ID (like a passport) and pay £3 to check the ownership at land registry online (takes...

    replied to Help needed CGT calculation
    Reinvesting has no bearing at all on the CGT calculation.

    You can only claim for a boiler if there was no boiler before AND the one you fitted is still there at the time of sale

    Moderator2 this poster has asked three trivial questions on the identical topic in different threads which should probably be merged. OP you will do a liot better to tell the whole story/scenario in one post -- not small legal trick questions (this is not how this forum works)....
