Government have created chaos in the PRS

We posted up an advert in the staff canteen of the local hospital, as my manager’s daughter works there. That has been far more effective than SpareRoom recently...!!... Read More

Government have created chaos in the PRS

Thanks Ros for another excellent article.
Sadly, as with most common sense, this will, yet again, be ignored by the government.
I pro-actively wrote/texted/emailed ALL my tenants to say my bank had point blank refused to give any sort of loan “Holiday” (Handelsbanken) and thus the next step would be repossessions by the bank if there were not enough rents coming in to make the payments. I have also said I was happy to discuss reductions temporarily as needed with individual tenants, but not to just go quiet and stop paying.
I have had an overwhelmingly positive response to this, with most rents being paid as normal this month, one scumbag was already two months into an eviction (They owe £3000) so for them, they have won the lottery... Thanks Mr Sunak. Otherwise so far, business as usual, (One is on 50% deferment out of 50)
Oh yes, and we are doing viewings at a prodigious rate... signed up two NHS Nurses and two others in the past week... Didn’t actually realise this was not supposed to be happening!! Anyway, we will continue to ignore that rule, if indeed it exists...!!!... Read More

How should I respond to the court as I need to sell?

Probably best to go to Landlord Action... If the AST is over four months old, (On a six month AST) Then a section 21 can be issued now, no argument. A section 8 for unpaid rent and Section 11, in case they pay it back at the last minute, are worth doing at the same time. LL Action have the correct forms and seem to get reults. I have served section 21's myself and they just get torn up and ignored, or eaten by the dog. It seems for something to happen, you have to pay money ... and then pay more!! Good luck with it!!...

Small Claims Cat and Mouse games?

Yes, Sorry, hope you have better luck than me, though in the five evictions I have had to go through, the tenant gets to stay for ages, without paying anything. The judges, when they grant the order, usually give extra time, and then the bailliffs delay everything further..... all of that time rent-free OF COURSE!! The laws are so biased in favour of the tenant, and the local authorities and the CAB encourage the problem by telling tenants to stay put...!!

Anyway, hope you get luckier than I was!!... Read More

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but :

You will not get a penny back...!!
These scum never ever pay, and they don't give a fig for CCJs etc. You will probably find she has a string of unpaid debts already...!!
At least you have the property back! Massive plus!! My scumbags are still in residence, ekeing out the section 21 then the hearing then the bailliffs.

Thanks your lucky stars she has actually left, now just re-paint, recarpet, and re-let...!!

If you get anything back from her at all (apart from abuse) I will be amazed.... Read More
