Agent will not release deposit money until I produce certificate?

Was Shelter’s campaign with Rosie likely to succeed if it got to court?

A few thoughts come to mind:
1) Shelter or Pro Bono couldn’t have been that confident in winning in Court if they accepted a relatively small amount of £2,000 as settlement.
2) Mortgage lenders, pretty much all of them, will not take benefit income into account when assessing affordability for a mortgage. Why should a landlord be any different when assessing ability to pay rent ?

Good idea to join the RLA if you plan on evicting yourself. They have a lot of info and documents you can download on their website, and also a Call Centre where you can speak to an expert on the phone for free. Very helpful and well worth the £80 a year membership fee.... Read More
