I've had the deduction for bills request too & requests for a delay in paying due to loss of local job & parents stuck abroad & unable to transfer funds.
I've been open & flexible with all of those and it's been fine. The bills I've just said there's unlikely to be much if any difference but I'll look at it at the end of the contract & take it into account when I return the deposit.
After a number of other tenants just trying it on with asking me to cancel the contract or discount rent, I'm down to just one problem student tenant but it's their parent/guarantor I'm dealing with.
Looking forward to this nightmare being over!... Read More

I had a letter from the student union rep’s asking me to ‘follow the spirit’ of the uni’s decision. I’ve explained to my tenants that I’m not in a position to do that & most have understood but I have 1 in particular whose parent is insistent that I do it for them. There’s no way I’m foregoing rent for any tenant who is not financially impacted by the virus & none of them can tell me that they are. They all had a choice to make at lockdown - stay in the property or return home. The uni tell me even some campus tenants have chosen to stay on & continue paying so it absolutely was a personal choice.
The test will be the end of this month when the last term’s rent is due. At the moment it looks like just 1 will not be paying but I have an anxious wait to find out.... Read More
