Does a new landlord inherit previous AST?

Sounds like a lot to me. I have similar matter risen as follows and would appreciate any comments.

In a process of buying a property for BTL.
Agents knew that I would need to put tenants in ASAP. So they found one before the purchase even started.
They asked me and venders if we would agree to start the tenants in as a matter of urgency. Agreed. I agreed to pay their fees and required other costs for certificate etc. Same as if I would pay as a new tenant find and all work done by the agents, but only after the completion of the purchase.

The agents tell me that they will be able to change everything in my name from venders just by giving section 3 notice to the tenants. So something very different to what I read here.

Also thinking what do I now tell to my solicitor and lender?... Read More

Tenants and bathrooms

My present tenants are good with clearing the mould that was left by last tenants, but they are so demanding.... they want to keep the property to their good standard but on their terms!!

The mould it disappearing slowly, but still they want extractor fan, although there is good ventilation and big window for air flow. I lived in the house next door, with same bathroom and never needed the extractor fan there, neither any neighbours have it, they still want it!

Now they are threatening not to pay rent unless the fan is installed, and tiles are changed, or they will do it themselves and deduct the money from rent, what a chick I thought... anyone agree? she has asked for a new bathroom really within 4 months of tenancy starting!... Read More

New Deposit Service launched

Can someone please tell me how I go about this very mistake? The property was rented in June but no deposit in the scheme. Tenants are no fuss and have no problem, so that much of a less risk. However, if I want to get things right, what can I do? my options etc??... Read More
