Taking rent from tenant overlap?

To reply to the original comment, I represented the landlord on a county court case for arrears. Tenant never handed keys back, property in very bad order when we finally realised he had left. Never gave notice. We claimed rent, damage and costs up to the day a new person moved in. But the Judge did say in this circumstance with a lack of notice ever having been given, that the landlord was generous in not charging up to the current day. He would have awarded it. So notice letter is very important!... Read More

Taking rent from tenant overlap?

I have a similar one, tenants not happy with the house at month 3 of 6 month AST, asked to surrender the tenancy. Leaders Letting Agents agreed to look, they found a tenant, asked for a move in date of 10 days later so tenants obliged and quickly moved out and handed keys back. New tenants didn't move in after all. Email confirmed they wouldn't owe any more money, after that date. It doesn't mention if the new tenant withdrew/failed referencing, what the situation would be.
Leaders are withholding the deposit.
What are your thoughts?... Read More

Fire escapes are a thing of the past, the idea is you need to give them at least an hour of protection so they can stay put to be rescued. I would question the freeholder of the block, in the light of Grenfell it's a genuine concern, as their fire regs may not be up to date and adequate enough. You don't have to tell them your flat is rented. I am seeing more questions on insurance renewals now concerning fire safety, so as a landlord in your position I would at least replace the internal doors and your front door with fire doors with an hours resistance and make sure you have at least a smoke alarm in each room. That's a minimum I would do. But also check your insurance does actually cover it being rented out? If your nurses are unrelated it constitutes an HMO but not one you need to licence. That applies to 5 or more.... Read More
