Can I charge for wasted Gas Certificate visit?

IMO, anyone that is renting a place with gas, knows that gas is required to do anything with the gas system. Not having it topped up with some kind of credit is very neglectful! I would not expect the gas engineer to find a PayPoint and go and top it up on anyone's behalf, that's not really his job, or the LL's. I'd be really cheesed off if I was charged twice by the engineer and I'd let the tenant know that I was keeping the invoice for a possible deduction when they leave, depending on whether they make a habit of similar situations. What is wrong with people?!... Read More

Local Housing Allowance and rent increase?

If the Council provide that money, then they obviously are able to pay it. I would definitely increase the rent, but why are you not doing that on a yearly basis anyway?? We ALWAYS do a yearly review on ALL of our properties. Increasing the rent after several years and expecting the tenant to suddenly cut back elsewhere to afford it is a bit unreasonable. A gentle increase each year keeps everyone in line with finances.... Read More

Dear Universal Credit Stage 1 complaints

I have no advice here, other than the advice I gave myself which was to avoid working with the Council at all costs many years ago. It wasn't too bad years ago when they sent a list of tenants with the amount paid, but even that wasn't easy because they paid every 4 weeks instead of when it was convenient to me!! I now tell prospective tenants I have no problem with where the money comes from, but they must pay their rent on the 1st of each month (all our leases start on the 1st of any given month), in advance, no matter what. I have lost a lot of prospective tenants, but my sanity must come first. I'm keeping my finger crossed that they sort it out for you. If it helps, it took me a year and a half to get a supply of electric to a flat. They dug up the road and filled it in 3 times and put an overhead line across the road and then took it down! They gave me electric and took it away the next day, twice! One can only hope you finally find someone with sense enough to sort it out for you.... Read More

Stuck with low EPC empty house we can't rent?

I have been reading these comments with interest. I had a flat, over a shop which was the main problem! There was absolutely nothing extra we could do to get this flat into the acceptable EPC band. In the end, we had to ADD two electric storage heaters, to run separately, along side the electric 'central heating' (water filled radiators run by electric, so just like actual central heating!). I feel your pain! Sometimes you need a human being to look at a situation and use some common sense. I hope it goes well for you. I'm off to read the rest of the comments.... Read More

Vision for an independent organisation to represent UK landlords

I thought this was an interesting concept until I read £100k wages! Did I read that right, or should I go back & use a fresh eye? If I did, I’m out! Come on, £100k? I’d prefer someone in the job for better reasons than a ridiculously high wage!... Read More
