Student Council tax exemption - Proof required?

Well tell the students that unless they respond they will have to pay the council tax and you will put the rent up accordingly. Or if they don't like it they can move out. I cant see why you are letting yourself be bothered with this situation. It is the students responsibility to claim exemption from council tax not yours. I always just give a rent that includes the council tax and pay it myself.... Read More

Planning expert to give view on 4 year rule please

Good luck make sure your surveyor knows what he is doing. I spent over a year trying to get a certificate and I had planning permission only for it to be refused by the council. I have now appealed but will have to wait another year. Mine was over 10 years and it was still refused without any communication from the council just a publication on their website. I hope the property is not in Waltham Forest as you will be wasting your time.... Read More

Was Shelter’s campaign with Rosie likely to succeed if it got to court?

Shelter is missing the issue. There are several reasons why landlords will not accept benefit tenants. The main one is because the government does not pay the housing benefit to which the claimant is entitled on time to either the claimant or the landlord. Landlords cannot afford to give free accommodation which is what happens. Another reason is that unfortunately housing benefit tenants do not look after the property and frequently incur expensive damage. I

the government needs to pay housing benefit claimamts the cost of their housing or provide the housing itself. Shelter is being ridiculous in criticising the sector that provides the housing it is not them that are at fault. Shelter needs to submit a report to the Housing Minister and stop accusing letting agents and landlords.... Read More
