Is this a Cunning Plan?

If the property is in an article 4 area then you would need planning permission as an HMO.

This is separate from licensing and others have responded about the license requirements.... Read More

Breach of Tenancy Agreement or a months rent?

Given the current climate, my personal view would be to let her go regardless of whether you get the rent or not.

If she refuses to go at the end of the section 21 notice then you are faced with court action, more cost and more time and the possibility that she does not pay those costs.

You then have your property back so that you can find another tenant.... Read More

Previous landlord failed to register deposit?

Hi Ian, Annie and Chris - thank you for your comments.

We (me and the tenants) only have copies of the one-page AST which was in the auction pack and does say that the deposit will be lodged. No one has any proof that it actually was. It does not even say which scheme would be used.

I issued section 48s to each tenant when I had completed on the property. I don't think there is anything else that I needed to do.

I have checked all the deposit schemes and none of them have anything lodged against that address for anyone. My assumption is that it was not registered.

Unfortunately I did not get our solicitor to review the pack before the auction. I do have some other issues that might have been picked up if the solicitor had reviewed and if I had a survey done ... hindsight is a wonderful thing. The property cash flows really well, even after paying for some of the "mistakes", including these lost deposits so it is a lesson learnt.

Thanks for your responses. I will probably pay the tenants back or lodge the money myself.... Read More

Hi Neil,

I have everything from the solicitor and have sent a request via my solicitor and his solicitor for this information. His solicitor says he has sent it on to him and asked him to be in touch directly - either via my solicitor or to me ... heard nothing (just over 2 months now).
