Unlicensed HMO with 2 self contained Units and 2 Rooms

Hi there.

Apply for your licence as soon as. Be as friendly and professional with the enforcement officer as you can. Also due to COVID you may have been impacted and that should be taken into consideration if you were late etc for access to certain flats. Ask his/her professional experience as to if you’ve made errors etc on the property, thank him/her for their time, ask if they are safe and well from COVID. Take a note pad and look professional, smile as best as you can.... Read More

Sub-letting tenant breaching contract but refusing to leave?

1. Serve him Section 21 notice.
2. Serve him a 14 day notice to pay your demand for demand for market rent for all the rooms and how much you have potentially lost
3. Include in the above the cost to refurbish all the property now that it is more wear and tear.
4. Include in the above you will apply for courts costs and it may damage his credit worthiness if he does not pay.
5. State that you are willing to let him “free of his tenancy along with the others at a certain mutual beneficial date one day after the two months notice.... Read More

Should I let to family through my limited company?


Everyone has their own take on advice.

1. Phone local council hb department and ask their take.

2. I have rented to a family member and council phoned me to confirm he was a family member and they agreed to pay AS i was not a father of a family member renting which is prohibited. IE, not a son or daughter.

3. Check Universal Credits website to check “their exclusions” on renting to family member.

4. You may not get market rent with a family member

5. If family member has children - do the right thing and help them whilst maximising the rent received via 2/3/4 bedroom rates.

6. Set up your tenancy squeaky clean, bond protected, inventory, NRLA tenancy agreement.

7. Lucky no 7. - feel good about what you are doing 🙏🏽👍🏾🌈

Which Landlords are classed as self-employed for Coronavirus help?

Thank you all for your comments on this!

If we have a property that is divided into flats/rooms etc and the mortgage is £1,000 and three tenants don’t pay for 3 months (but are applying for Govt help scheme), then it could take a few months for them to get help?

Meanwhile ball the costs of letting, etc are still payable.

Landlords could still be in a cashflow predicament.

This is why we need NRLA or us to start a petition that we be classed as self employed immediately and scrapping of the sect 24 tax system. We are in a real crisis and are being left behind.

We are the very people that help get folks off the streets. This Govt is thinking outside the box - let’s push them further to think 🤔 about the above!

Any thoughts please (be kind to all replies my friends)😷✊💕.
