I don't disbelieve he can't pay?

Hi
I have similar tenant who has been with us for six years. He has never missed a payment as these are set up with DD. On that basis, I'd need to go off his payment history and accept he is telling the truth. How and when he makes up the defect is another discussions which can only be had once we have sight of the end of this lock-down.
On the other side, I have had tenant where are soon as the legislation was announced, would be demanding three month rent holiday - with the chances of ever getting the rent pretty much zero.... Read More

Property Building work and Tenants Protection

Reply to the comment left by "Heather G." at "16/06/2017 - 12:47":

Hi

Thanks for all the good advice. Exactly what I wanted

Only real reason I wish to do it sooner rather than later is it will probably cost more later. I'm not looking to increase the current tenant's rent after the build just because they'd then have additional space, as that would not be fair on good tenants. It's more a strategic long term plan for property value.... Read More
