Rent A Room consultation will hit Airbnb style letting

What about self contained annexes that are attached/linked to the house with an internal door?? Built originally for relatives now empty and can provide good quality accommodation, but again too much hassle without tax relief.... Read More

Concerns over unintended consequences of fees ban in Commons debate

The landlord already has to pay the lettings agents finding/management fee plus inventory and contract fee why is the landlord constantly being battered for satisfying demand in the most part with good housing which the council couldn't come close to satisfying should private landlords decide to sell up and leave the marketplace altogether.
I also deeply concerned about a cap on security deposits having had a tenant who gave notice to leave and then simply didn't pay their last months rent but said we could use the security deposit to cover it. This left us with a deficit and no security deposit to speak of had they caused damage to the property. Most landlord insurances wont cover you for only one months lost rent and which small landlord starts litigation to recover one months rent with the costs involved in doing so?

Thanks Puzzler but then I pay an excess and my premiums go up for any other home insurance as I have made a claim. Damned if you do Damned if you don't. How can bright pink tennis ball sized dye stains be wear and tear? I was awarded £60 for those which are in the centre of the living room on a beige carpet, it's very weighted on the side of the poor tenant always.... Read More
