Dogs and Domestic Animals (Accommodation and Protection) Bill 2019-21

I've found pets can leave behind fleas, dander and other things that can trigger allergies with following new tenants. There does not seem to be a comprehensve post tenancy pet cleaning service either - you have to hope that carpet cleaning does the trick.... Read More

640,000 empty homes in England

Reply to the comment left by Happy Landlord at 08/10/2020 - 10:53Think you need to think of the new world going forward. All political parties have now deserted the landlord vote - the last party - the Tories - have now made up their strategy which says that the biggest issue amongst youngsters is their not being able to get a home and the common reason why? BTL landlords hogging all the property! We know this is not true and not the end of the story but thats not how the wider world see us. To get the young vote, the Tories and every other party, will not relent until they have beaten every landlord out of business. If you want to stay a landlord, be prepared to take the beating....

New Welsh £8 million Tenant Saver Loan scheme for PRS only

Well this is great news for Welsh landlords and well done NRLA - especially getting the money direct to the landlord. However, what's the chance of seeing this in England?

If the government are willing to extend all sorts of deals to people and expect landlords to be patient with tenants, then why cant the government help tenants out with their debts - if the Welsh government can do this, why not the English? Also if the landlord does not receive the rent and loses out, the government loses out on the tax.... Read More

Evicted but when should we enforce £20,000 debt?

If she's self employed through some kind of limited company entity, then the funds will be hitting the company account, not hers. Presume she is not on benefits otherwises its fraud of course but the services don't seem to care about this. But at some point she will need to take a salary or dividends and then these are officially declared via self-assessment so it could be up to 21 months after her first salary or dividend hits her account becuase self assessment is done January after April when tax year ends so this is the point you can get her in the small claims court. Good luck... Read More

Rent guarantor service - Should I proceed?

Sorry I should also add a general rule about personal guarantors - don't ever sign with such a guarantor in Scotland if you are in England/Wales - different legal system means that a Scottish guarantor can obstruct an English small claim case by asking for it be transferred to a Scottish court meaning you have to travel to Scotland for hearings and the Scottish system runs at a snails pace compared with say, a London court....
