Let your property to the Council for Emergency Accommodation?

I let property to a local HA and found out that they were using it for emergency accommodation.

The damage included using a gas barbecue to cook their food in the lounge and burnt the carpet; extensive mould which resulted in having to knock back to the brick.

I would say do this at your peril, sorry.... Read More

She's not only wanting to housed by the LA but also money from you if by not having any tenancy. If she is saying she is not your tenant then could she be a trespasser? If so wait till she goes out, put her stuff in HGG street and change the locks lol. But that might cause you bigger problems but ............. Read More

The tenant obviously thinks by your eviction notices the LA will rehouse her. Hopefully they won't... Read More
