Section 21 abolition stinks!

In the dark old days a landlord would hire a gang of thugs to rid them of bad tenants. If landlords are stuck in a corner, I can see the return of this means of addressing problems such as this!... Read More

LTS claim 46% of London agents are not compliant

Reply to the comment left by Chris Daniel at 13/09/2019 - 23:11I guess in this case, it's because the agent is employed by the landlord and the tenant is lumbered with the agent the landlord choses!... Read More

Hi BL, I use lettingsupermarket.com but I do have a financial interest. I would need to know more about your expectations of an agent before further comment. Feel free to drop allwessex an emai (info@allwessex.co.uk).... Read More

Does the council have the right to check all of my property?

Hi Lilia, why do you think your tenant is not paying rent or utility bills? From your previous enquiry you imply a single gas boiler supplying various apartments. Are electricity and water supplies the same? If so how are the bills split and is this fair? What does your AST say on the matter? The council can serve you 24 hours notice of a visit your property and inspect the whole property. They will need to contact any tenants separately to visit individual apartments if occupied. Assuming everything is in order and you wish to repossess the apartment you will need to serve a section 8 (assuming still in the fixed term). However, this will not be valid if you are foul of the Fit for Habitation Act or other legislation such as failure to serve relevant document prior to the tenancy start date. I don't feel you necessarily need to join a landlord association but you do need legal advice from a PRS competent solicitor asap. Moving forward, joining a landlord association and taking advantage of courses offered etc. will help you become a competent and informed landlord. Understanding the law, landlord and tenant obligations will make things easier in the long run! Good luck. PS, if your in the Bath or Bristol area, feel free to contact me.... Read More
