Protect landlords rights of repossession - Gas Safety Certificate

What happens if tenant has no gas safety certificate in date because he won’t allow access to engineer to do one? I wish to serve sec 21 but can’t because tenant won’t allow access for gsc. Can i serve sec 8 without a current gsc?... Read More

Arrears settled but LPA receivers still acting negligently?

Reply to the comment left by Neil Patterson at 06/08/2018 - 11:37
Yes please contact Peter Fisher because he dealt with the matter for me although I actually stuck at it and sorted it out myself in the end
I had to confront Mortgage Express .. LP a receivers did the same to me they repossessed one property after putting the tenant on the street saying there was no tenancy agreement when there was, they left the door open and the property was vandalised while in their care then they auctioned it and sold it. The other property I was more aware and there were no arrears on it same as usual the arrears were cleared however they repeatedly tried to repossess it and I managed to stop them physically by barricading them out this went on for months and was extremely stressful. LP a receivers are well known for this and break the law in every respect, they go to court and they lie. My advice would be to try and contact someone I app in the bank of Ireland which is what I did and try and explain the situation and make another complaint also contact Peter Fisher CP law associates and give him my name say I told you to contact him
They put a huge amount on my mortgage which I am still paying but I managed to hold on to the property and the mortgage company are letting me vent it in a bid to get back some of the money but there is a problem with LPA receivers and they need exposing by as many people as possible. They lie they work underhandedly and you have to be a step ahead of them all the time do not think they stick to the law they don’t. My guess is they have evicted the tenant illegally by saying there was no tenancy agreement and I would keep possession of the property and even put a relative in there to care take it if you can until you sort this out otherwise you are liable for all their money that I think Peter Fisher will be able to put you in touch with the right people...

Government look to throw landlords under the bus with 3 year tenancies

Some of my tenants are mostly foreign workers, they would not sign up that long. Latest tenant is saving for his own deposit he would not want to signup for three years either. Other tenants do stay that long or longer but if, like I have at the moment, I have a tenant who doesn't pay the rent and hasn't for some six months and she is on an AST, I am currently still trying to get her out of my property even though I have a warrant for possession at the moment she is still living there for nothing, so that will give her license to stay forever I should think. I definitely won't be letting out tenancies for three years, as a cancer survivor my health is such that I cannot commit to do that. If I was ill again next year I would need to sell or have the option to. The safest thing for me to do if I have to rent for three years is to sell before I am forced to do that ..... Read More

Can I rent property pending Prohibition Notice appeal?

Reply to the comment left by Asif Ahmed at 13/02/2018 - 17:00Yes I have the documents and I have also emailed them to the council several times, they have acknowledged receipt of them but still have not lifted the notice. It is a small terraced two bedroom property rentable to a couple only. Completely renovated now completely replastered repainted and in excellent order with brand-new certificates and still they will not lift the notice or acknowledge my request for proof of service and give me a reason why
I was recently emailed a copy of the order but it was never served on me. The schedule of works was left at the property with the three items on it but not the complete notice... Read More

Can I rent property pending Prohibition Notice appeal?

The council are being extremely difficult and unreasonable. I had a council officer screaming down the phone ' I can scream louder than you' and then put the phone down on me when I asked what else was required, he said he didn't know because he hadn't had sight of the notice and this is the manager of the private housing department. The house is newly renovated it has a new electrical report and safety certificate which has been sent to the council, it has new heating system and installation and gas certificate it has all been sent to the council and they have not acknowledged that I have complied with the notice. I have complied with the notice because I have provided the two certificates they requested I have also asked them for proof of service of the notice and they will not provide this. I am of the opinion and certain that the notice has not been served legally or correctly and I am of the opinion that the council wish to be difficult and malicious and are trying stop me renting the property although there is no reason to do so now the notices have been complied with. They will not lift the notice even though they have the certificates they requested. The manager did tell me that one of the kitchen worktops was out of place and I stated this was because the plumber had removed it to fit plumbing for a washing machine but the kitchen worktop was not on the notice. It appears they wish to add nonessential cosmetic work to the notice now at a later date. I have requested proof of service and re-sent all certificates and have requested the notice is lifted but had no reply. The house is in excellent order and newly renovated. So I don't know what to do next
The council did visit the property and have seen the small leak in the skylight was fixed and they have possession of the electrical and gas certificates and reports. These were the three items on the prohibition notice. I then asked them to lift the notice and they will not even though it has been complied with and they have inspected and have possession of the certificates... Read More
