Out on my ear after 25 years

Nicola with that extra knowledge I completely understand why you feel this way. I can only say that your landlord is not acting in a nice way.... Read More

Out on my ear after 25 years

David I did say I would expect the landlord to be more caring, but this is down to an individuals morals and not a requirement of the law. As a landlord I personally would not have done this to Nicola, I would have given her three months to find somewhere suitable. But I expect she would still be aggrieved as she would still have to move out of the area to find similar accommodation at that price, so no real easy solution. Nicola feels she is owed money as compensation and this is absolutely not the case. Nicola has said that to rent another similar property would cost twice what she is paying, so obviously offering alternative accommodation is not possible.... Read More

Private address required for HMO Licence!

Anyone can obtain a list of licensed HMO licensee's from the local council in question. Some councils have the information on their website in plain view, some councils will take a few weeks to give you the information as it comes under the Freedom Of Information Act. Currently I have to provide my home address on any AST's that I issue. I can't see the problem of your tenants knowing where you live. Unless you give your tenants a reason to dislike you it. Screen your tenants to try to edit out any undsirables.... Read More
