Absent freeholder since purchase in 2011 suddenly appears?

Doesn't sound very professional that he is threatening you by text. I would first establish if he really is the Freeholder or not and have somebody professional examine your Lease and the Freehold title. Depending on the arrangement and the other Leaseholders, see if you can collectively enfranchise and buy the Freehold from him and own a share of the Freehold, taking him out of the picture? In the meantime, you need to establish who he is and why he now has crawled out of the woodwork!... Read More

LHA Increase to trigger rent increase?

Hi. Is the issue here not where the increase in rent is fair and proportionate? You mentioned you have not increased the rent for quiet some time so the question would be be what % did you increase it earlier this year and is it reasonable, without tenant consent?... Read More

Landlord fits new high efficiency boiler in under 24 hours despite tenant owing rent!

Agreed and I get it! Honestly, I've had my fair share of issues and it is frustrating when you have to spend money to fix things when rents are not forthcoming, it's not right or fair!

UC have made it easier to apply for direct payments and my advise to anybody who has rent arrears would be to use the link below and ask for an arrangement, even if you don't know if the tenant is claiming or not. They tend to respond within 1-2days and will either agree it, give a generic reason why not or advise the claimant does not exist. It takes mins to complete and the potential gain is worth it .....

As with tenants, many Landlords, imo, bury their heads in the sand too and do nothing. That achieves nothing.... Read More

That is unfortunate and i'm sorry to hear that. Did you not have a guarantor when they signed the agreement? Also, being non-British is not an automatic refusal to claiming state help. It is always worth doing some research to see if they can claim and to make sure they are not claiming already and not telling you about it. Here's a link to Shelter which might be helpful ...

IF they are in 2months+ rent arrears or there are other reasons (drug abuse, mental health etc.) then UC & HB have to pay it direct to you. Please correct me if my understanding of that is incorrect?

I believe UC may also be able to make deductions from their on-going other benefits to pay rent arrears. I'm not 100% sure about this as i've not yet needed to do this.... Read More
