The accounts and management are a joke?

Reply to the comment left by BernieWales at 18/06/2021 - 12:03
Bernie, why not be more transparent and mention that this is simply a "plug" for a £35 package which you are trying to market?

I quote: "My 'Fire Your Freeholder' Info Pack is available for just £35.00"

Note to Property118 management: Is such disguised marketing" allowed on this platform?... Read More

Does a new landlord inherit previous AST?

A few comments:

1. Most cases of "inheriting" an AST relate to where the term/tenancy has already commenced. It seems to OP is asking about a renewal that has been signed but won't take effect for about another month.
* Given that the terms (apparently) are not being changed from those of the one that had been signed (and, hopefully, witnessed because it was not going to take effect immediately), I cannot see a problem with REQUESTING a replacement contract, where all that has changed is landlord's details - and insertion of a note that this replaced the contract made on between and .
* But I BELIEVE that the original document would still be valid as between the new parties, given that new landlord has served appropriate info (name & address of landord, and details of to whom the rent would be payable) on the tenant.

2. Christopher asks about "limitations in terms of serving notice" if certain documentation has not been supplied to the tenant at the requisite time/s.
* AFAIK, if there is no change in landlord, then landlord can simply serve the documentation late (but before giving notice etc.). Change of landlord would not prevent new landord from having this option.
* Regarding the NEW tenancy, there CANNOT yet have been such a failure to supply the documents.

Don't forget, the new tenancy means re-protecting the deposit, and requirement to repeat the right-to-rent checks. These would not be required if allowing the existing tenancy to become periodic.... Read More

Compensation of 60 years regulated tenant?

"EICRs only just came in"
Not really, they've been around for several years.
An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is also called a PIR (Periodic Inspection and Testing Report), and some relevant web pages appear to date back to 2001 !!! [Try a Google search on the exact phrase, time-limited to before 2010, if you don't believe me.]
But it's barely 2 months ago that they became compulsory for existing tenancies.... Read More

Nuisance cherry tree?

Bill - after the complaints you tell us you've had, one can understand you being rather sensitive to criticism, real or perceived.
It is possible that amarni, by the first word, "It", of his post (at 29/05/2021 - 18:09) really meant something like "Whether such complaints are reasonable and/or to be expected". In which case he would NOT be claiming to "know" anything about you, and his remarks would NOT be intended as disparaging.
"If the cap don't fit, don't wear it!"

BTW, amarni's criteria would mean that somebody who works reasonably standard/typical hours would NEVER be able to use a shredder - but it's quite likely (from "50+ years of looking after my gardens") that, like me, you are "retired".... Read More

... and neighbour might even be willing to chip in a few bob to the project, and/or suggest somebody to get a quote from.
It should be easy to check for a Tree Preservation Order (very unlikely, as indicated) - but do make sure whether or not the property & garden is in a Conservation Area, which would require giving the Local Authority advance notice of any intended work to trees, and they might decide to attach conditions. (There is no charge for "Tree in Conservation Area" notifications/applications, even though this does come under the heading of Planning Applications.)... Read More
