Shelter claim 45% of private renters are victims of illegal actions

Reply to the comment left by Glyn Moore at 14/09/2021 - 12:34
Absolutely agree Glyn, moreover this type of debate is likely to be more divisive than constructive and set more landlords and tenants at odds with each other.

But when you think about it Shelter and the likes are like arms dealers, the last thing they want is peace. We should all remember that when we read and respond this utter tripe. I feel the last thing they will ever do is come to the table, as no one needs arms if there is no war!... Read More

Shelter claim 45% of private renters are victims of illegal actions

Half of the claims are perceptive and do not demonstrate clear evidence of an illegal action and therefore their claim of 45% is purely finger in the air stuff.

Not to mention the 3,5000! who did the survey Diane Abbott?

Don't forget studies show 116% of statistics are completely made up ;-)... Read More

Tenant charged with Arson?

Reply to the comment left by Julie Dawson at 15/04/2021 - 10:15
Yes just write to him, as others say it is informal.

What I would do is write the letter you want signed and sent back to you, and include that so all he has to do is sign it include a stamped self addressed envelope. This way you can ensure the wording is sufficiently legally correct and beyond a signature he has to do nothing.

Get someone to help you word it or search the net for a surrender letter.... Read More

Tenant charged with Arson?

Hi Julie

Really sorry to hear your plight I really feel for you.

I had a slightly different situation, many years ago my tenant who was absolutely perfect, never missed a payment improved the property and the neighbours loved him. However he was caught driving a van with drugs in it so he was sent to prison for 10 years.

I, like you did not want to send good money after bad, so wrote to him in prison asking very politely to formally surrender the lease. He did and that was it.

Whilst the advice from Steve is absolutely correct, I would take a moment first to try and get the tenant to surrender, at least that way it is free and you never know, it may work.... Read More

Silly question, have you asked DAS for a list of their introducers/intermediaries so you can pick one and send the business through them to DAS?

And Deborah and I are not related....at least I dont think we are haha ;-)... Read More
