It's been 6 months but...

Coronovirus isn't over yet. if there are any more legal delays isn't this just sequestration of property by the back door.? There will be a glut of evictions due to the backlog and this won't be allowed if the virus is still around.... Read More

Can one buy a property for a friend and charge him rent?

Hi I'm no expert but I understand there is a legal way to do this through Lease Options 'option to buy' . I'll leave it to you to do the research but basically gives the buyer the right to buy after a specified period at a specified price. I think usually there would be little premium for this maybe on the rent in the meantime, but I suppose that's up to you. You would need to find a solicitor who understands lease options to protect both parties.... Read More

Westminster online tool encouraging HMO tenants to claim Rent Repayment Orders!

I wonder what the position is if the tenant illegally creates an HMO by default due to separating from his/her partner in the scenario mentioned above and the landlord had this situation covered in the contract. i.e. no change to tenants circumstances that affect the property status, is permitted etc. However because they have not informed the landlord and are now claiming it's an unlicensed HMO the landlord wants to evict, but is unable to due to Govt regulations and has to give the tenant 6 months notice and possibly longer if the tenant refuses to go. So the landlord is left with a situation where he will need to defend himself legally for as long as it takes to evict the tenant.... Read More

I presume the tenants are breaking the contract if they use a third bedroom without the landlords permission. Usually the contract would specify how many people/households permitted. Even so you would hope that proof would have to be supplied by the tenants that they had separated and when they told the landlord. I would hope a rent repayment order could be successfully challenged in this situation.... Read More
