Jenrick overhauls tenancy agreement to help end pet bans

We bought a flat to live in and it literally took years to get rid of the fleas the previous elderly ladys cat left behind. I'm an animal lover but it was horrible, we had to change all the carpets and there's no way I could have let the property, imagine what new tenants would have said!... Read More

This does highlight the sort of issue that will crop up in reality though, how much private owner occupiers should have to contribute towards 'communal' costs that might be incurred primarily for the purpose of the HMO licence, including buildings insurance. BTW, we also have a social media group for all the occupants/owners so problems can be raised and dealt with quickly and so far it's all worked really well and I can recommend trying it. Perhaps we've just been lucky. Must say I think the licence is very expensive.... Read More
