Yes the property was managed by an agent in regards to rent collection and maintenance management on an 'as reported' basis but not full management. Neither I nor the agent did any interim inspections. Another lesson learned there.... Read More

In answer to you question please see below. I have responded in capitals so it's easier to read my answers.

Did you see the tenants reference Before the tenancy began ?
NO

Was the referencing professional and fit for purpose ?
YES, IT WAS DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL REFERENCING COMPANY I'VE BEEN USING FOR YEARS. IT WAS FIT FOR PURPOSE ON THE BASIS THAT THE DAS INSURANCE UNERWOTE LEGAL FEES INSURANCE AND RGI BASED ON THE REFERENCE

We’re tenants employed - was a Guarantor considered.
ONE OF THE TENANTS WAS EMPLOYED, HIS WIFE WAS A FULL TIME MUM. NO GUARANTOR WAS CONSIDERED NECESSARY DUE TO HAVING RGI. WITH THE BENEFIT OF 20;20 VISION IN HINDSIGHT A GUARANTOR WOULD BE OF SOME HELP NOW.

Where had they lived over past 5 years and was their ‘ Previous but one ‘ landlord spoken with.
DON'T KNOW

Do they come up on any Social media searches ?
NO

We’re copies of their last three months bank statements provided.

Kent Landlord - Hero or Villain

To those of you would consider Council's would not unreasonably prosecute landlords I offer this analogy.

It is 4am on a Sunday morning. Yours is the only car on the road, there are no people around and weather conditions are perfect. You leave your house and get zapped by the speed camera doing 34 mph is a 30 area.

A few days later you receive the fine and decide to go to court to contest it on the grounds that you have put nobody at risk. What do you think the magistrates would say?

They have no choice other than to fine you and to add at least three points to your driving licence, which is also highly likely to affect your future insurance premiums. It may even result in you being banned from driving.

The problem with the 24 hour rule that Larry and Mr Wilson are contending is that the hands of the Courts are similarly tied. However, the consequences of the prosecution are significantly more punitive because the Council then have an opportunity to refuse to grant further licences to the now 'criminal landlord'.

In conclusion, I completely understand the business decision made by Mr Wilson and the assertions of Larry that it is the law that's an ass, not Mr Wilson for evicting single parents with young children.... Read More
