Keys and tenants own appliances?

I have dealt with miss placed keys many times, one tenant is a bit of nightmare, it par for the course, if it costs the landlord, then the cost should be met by the tenant.
Electrical wise, it is a mine field, as tenants tend to view any situation as, I pay rent you should sort anything & everything out, even if it their error.
One tenant did indeed want me to change fuses and bulbs, he tripped a fuse on a Friday evening three weeks in a row!

Moral of the story even a guarantor is not guaranteed :(... Read More

Rent being held back by agent after slipping on to periodic tenancy?

Firstly as you have not signed a new agreement I would believe the agreement that you did sign is the primary document, they cannot force you to agree to a new contract without signing it, at best they should stop providing their service.

Secondly but as important imo, get a call recording app, I just got £60 from an energy supplier, r as I was messed around and lied to, as I had call recorded I had them bang to right.... Read More
