Shortage of rental properties so extreme tenants are refusing to leave?

Constant changes to private landlords has driven many out of the industry. The past 2 years of covid also proved difficult for alot of landlords especially in London.

Mould after grant funded insulation?

As mentioned above, houses were built to breath, and modern efforts to plug every draft, and seal every nook and cranny only opens up other cans of worms, and condensation and mould is the result.

Tenancy in one persons name only?

If the credit check for 1 person comes back saying he can pay the full amount, then I would rent to him. The contract is in his name and therefore he is responsible. However be careful, should he sublet, or persons not named on the agreement, they could become sitting tenants and be a problem leading to eviction issues... Read More
