Potential Commission Dispute?

I also agree with Neil T
I always delete any terms I do not like or agree with.
One in particular I enter my self is as follows.
" No commission is due from you,should I sell my property to family or any relations.
Or if I take it off the market.
I also have the right to increase the asking price at anytime.
I will give you an example,many years ago ,my property was not selling.
So to the dismay of my wife ,I put the price up,guess what it sold in weeks.
The buyer tried knocking me down and I agreed to £1000 reduction,little did they know I still got over 20k over the first price with the reduction.
Lesson learned,agents price it to sell ,so they get their commission asap,even if it means screwing you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... Read More

you do not need to accept any offer from your second agent.
What I would advise is to talk to both agents and ask that they share the commission between them,owing to the circumstances.)
It is best to try and agree this and be fair to both agents.
My feeling is they will share.... Read More

Tenant insists on gas fire replacement!

Landlords can take action to make the home safer !
If it means capping off gas fires,so be it.
replace with electric,even cookers and hobs.
If the tenants do not like it,well they have the option to move !
NO ONE Will see this action,as anything but protecting your tenants.
End of the day it is your property ! you need to be more firmer and not let tenants dictate to you.As I say they can always leave and rent elswhere.
No court in the land will see it AS ANYTHING BUT PROTECTING THEIR INTERESTS and it is not a court matter anyway ! your house your terms,as long as you do not break the law,like not having boiler serviced and gas certificate etc.What anyone says you can cap off and even remove gas fires and gas cookers and hobs.This government want us all to move away from gas anyway and gas boilers will soon be banned from sale.Don't give in it is YOUR PROPERTY be firm but polite.If there is central heating,one does NOT need a gas fire or even electric for that matter !...

Tenant insists on gas fire replacement!

I agree with the comments regarding what was in the property,when the tenant moved in.
If there was a gas fire,then a gas fire is what they should get,unless you can agree otherwise.
All my tenancy agreements clearly state,that gas fire has been capped off for safety reasons and the tenants signed for that fact when they signed the tenancy agreement. All this comes from experience having been a landlord now for over 20 years.
I supply a cooker in all my homes I rent out.I never supply appliances and having rented properties for over 20 years this has never been a problem ever.
In one of my properties I excluded the use of one shed(as I keep stuff in it)
I excluded the use of a bathroom on the ground floor because it had a steam shower and whirlpool bath.All this agreed in the tenancy.and seeing they had another bathroom,plus ensuite,plus another shower room,plus another downstairs w/c I was justified,as the rent charged would not reflect giving them the steam shower etc.Being a landlord is like walking through a mine field ! walk carefully.
So if you need to exclude things,just have it drawn up into the tenancy,it is not rocket science.... Read More
