Can UC take on board Local Council advice?

Totally agree With you John, the Government have created the system and problem with rent arrears by not paying the rent direct and they will have. bigger problems as more and more private landlords refuse to take in these tenants and the tenants exasperate the problem with their lack of respect and their attitude towards the properties they reside in, until the tenant respects where they live the situation will only get worse...

Can UC take on board Local Council advice?

I am aLandlord myself and understand your concerns My sister received a call from the council Very Late at night last New Years Eve asking her to take on a tenant implying they would pay her direct and set it all up First thing in the New Year and that it would be in an email to her, The tenant moved in and she has only ever received One months rent, when she called them They said it’s now between her and Universal Credits or the unemployed people, she only ever received One months rent since then, the tenant told her to F off and he continues to claim the rent and other benefits direct, no one in the council will help her, COVID set in and she became stuck with him as all Courts were suspending evictions claims, now the court process has started she has been told it will beat least another 3 months before she can get him out if he refuses to go until the Bailiffs can be sent in, He advertises on SM and in adverts and works full time as a roofer, he claims the full rent allowance and other money and still works, my sister told the UC and unemployment departments this and they told her there is nothing they can do as they are short staffed, how pathetic is that, so she will be out of pocket about £6000 in rent when she eventually gets him out, when she Tries to talk to him about If he calls her the C word and everything else and tells her to F off saying there is nothing she can do about it and laughs in her face, he sends her abusive threatening txts which she showed the Pllice and they told her it’s Civil matter until he assaults her, her Solicitor said he Is sorry but he’s following the Law and is frustrated himself, any one have any advice I can give her Peter Lasssman peterlassman818@hotmail.com thank you 😎...

12 out of 13 tenants asked for "Rent-Free Holiday"?

It’s an Appalling situation to be in, being a small Landlord myself 10 properties, I sympathise with you Simon as we still have fixed costs and bills to pay and it seems a lot of people who are in are on furlong are actually better off at the moment as they have no travelling costs and actually saving money, personally I think you should be taking a hard stand, first send a letter explaining why they are wrong with a link to a Government website that explains how it really works, then issue the correct legal paperwork if you get no reply or money, and then ASAP and time allows evict them all, let them know it’s coming and do not back down as either way you will be out of pocket and I’m sure once this is all over you will find better tenants, hope you get it sorted Peter...

Put ourselves in the shoes of these kids?

I totally sympathise with students and private tenants at this time however, for us personally and many other Small Landlords like us as this is our only income if we have no rental income ours mortgage payments and regular service charges will not be met, we will personally lose apx £3500 a month on outgoings that have to be paid, a mortgage holiday is money that will and still needs to be repaid at some time when this is all over, this is effecting everyone and small businesses run by self employed people will be hit the hardest, apologies if this sounds harsh but we are all in this, everyone is being effected Students will either get an allocated Grade or finish the course at home and then go on to earn money to repay these loans as they would have done, Landlords will still have to repay their unpaid bills...

Tenant refuses to grant access without paying him?

Why are you not using an Agent if your overseas and do you not have a spare set of keys and possibly a spare security fob, give him 48hrs notice of a contractor going there with an Agent (3rd Party) and turn up if he’s there all the better and if he’s not there go in, after all you gave him adequate notice, or phone the police and say a neighbour smells something odd from the flat and you think it needs investigating and as the Landlord you give them right of access and will accompany them at the time of entry 😎 And serve him Notice ASAP...
