Reasons for not selecting tenant and claims of discrimination?

2 thoughts: 1) We do already have tenants whose income is entirely composed of DLA and Carer's Allowance and so far neither our mortgage company nor any of the Landlord Insurance companies we have used have objected (even though they have pretty much all that they stated won't sanction our renting to tenants on benefit)
2) We wouldn't select anyone who was in any way confrontational to live in any of our properties and agree that you don't need to show your hand about what criteria you are using to make your choice from the many applicants you will no doubt have had (and it would indeed to be risky/foolish to do so)...

13 Fires a day reported!

I have posted on here in the past about the issue I am STILL having with Hotpoint and my faulty tumble drier (one of many, many thousands of affected appliances) which overheats (but only since I allowed them to carry out their suggested 'modification') and which they refuse to recall despite ongoing investigations into properties that have been destroyed and even lives that have been lost!
I would not ever permit a Hotpoint appliance of any kind (Indesit and Creda are the same beast under a different name) into any of our properties nor stand idly by while any of my friends or family members purchased one. They are unsafe death traps and their Customer care is NON EXISTENT!... Read More

Cuddly Corbyn wants to give tenants the right to keep pets

Reply to the comment left by Mark Alexander at 14/02/2018 - 16:22We too often allow pets with our consent because so many landlords don't and we can often that way get good tenants who can find nowhere else to rent with their pets.
The one bad experience we have had was with a tenant who it transpired, at our first Landlord Visit actually owned a LARGE dog (and probably a cat too - if the TINY basket under her TV was a clue - which she denied) who was/were already in situ (in our TINY one bed bungalow) with no consents sought or given.
It seemed churlish at the time to make too much of a fuss as she'd been there for a while by then with no apparent damage - so we simply added a clause to her TA around her paying any additional cleaning costs etc if required at the end of her tenancy.
Far more crucially she was subsequently 'dobbed in' by our CH engineer who, when he went to fix her boiler, informed us that in his opinion she also by that time had her adult daughter + her b/friend and their new baby living there PLUS their 3 adult Yorkshire Terriers and a litter of 7 puppies (remember this was all in a TINY one bedroom bunglaow!), who between them it transpired had already trashed the front garden, all of the skirting boards in the kitchen, the bottom of every internal doors in the property and all of the carpets!
She was then of course given notice to leave and eventually did so - owing her last months rent and of course the cost of repairing the considerable amounts of damage done, leaving us with a large shortfall outside of the amount of the deposit held!
All of that of course occurred without any consent of any kind to keep pets being given before her tenancy commenced.... Read More

I did know that (my daughter reminds me constantly). I believe it's a throwback to WWII and is a part of the Allotment Act designed to enable householders to feed themselves?... Read More
