Utilities liability - no contract?

are you planning on using any gas/elec while property is empty. if not - register contract in your name. contract starts when you start using energy (not when you register) so you wont pay any standing charge. if they try charging you contact them saying you are a landlord. property is empty and no elec/gas is being used at the address. its easy. don't worry about using a few lightbulbs to show people around. it wont show on the meter....

Tenant now in prison and friend looking after property and cats?

I had an ok tenant sent to Prison for 14 months. I contacted the Prison and had no help from them. I left them my details. They contacted me asking if my tenant was able to return to my flat.

She stayed at the flat and left 18 months later. It was a worrying time but turned out ok in the end. Things could have been very different if she had stayed in prison longer or had returned to my flat causing trouble.... Read More

Tenant going to prison - how do I gain possession of my property?

My tenant went to court expecting a slap on the wrist and was sent to prison. I was told I could not evict them because the tenant needed their accomodation to return to. They paid me housing benefit for 13 weeks which was the maximum time. The sentence was for 11 months but they returned home at 13 weeks. The whole episode was a mess with no one telling me what was happening. And once again showed me that landlords still have no rights even when their tenant is in prison. Good luck.... Read More
