Tenancy ends and how to observe Covid-19 lockdown?

If the tenant is still in possession of the room ie has her belonging in the property then she is liable until vacant possession is obtained.

The rest is irrelevant.

As for Gunga comment about council tax, make sure your tenancy states them at they revert to ‘contractual Periodic’ at the end and NOT ‘statutory periodic’ as the tenant will be liable to the next tent date. It’s not much but it all helps... Read More

£100,000 slander payout to Landlord by Doncaster Council

The problem the landlord has is the offer of £100,000 means if he is awarded less in court he would have to pay ALL of the other side’s costs. At £500,000 it’s a big downside and very little up side.

He is not going to get much more than the £100k so would you risk everything you own on to have to pay the estimated half a million in costs for another £20-50k?

Never mind the stress and pressure it puts you under to continue the fight and have to go to court where there is no guarantee.

The landlord received £100k and a statement was released that ‘all allegations were false’ then for the Debbie Hogg to say the opposite maybe opens them up again?... Read More

MR WHIP OFF Councils breaking Laws collecting council tax?

For what it is worth (and a real world example)

My office appealed a council tax bill as the tenant left inside a periodic/contractual month. We said they were bound the day prior their rent day (their notice period)

The council came back with a long letter about legal precedence and ask for proof that our original tenancy give an initial fixed period and stated that it would give rise to further term on a monthly basis.

As long as we could prove that then our appeal would be successful. We scanned our tenancy and not heard anything back.... Read More
