Tenants - This is probably the second joint biggest reason why you can't get a house and why you're paying extortionate rents

Well, that is what the NRLA is there for. They should be fighting tooth and nail for us instead of being there for the tenants.... Read More

Could Crypto cause a real world crash?

Crypto will be volatile however, more and more people are holding crypto and I believe it is here to stay.
El Salvado has already adopted it as it's currency and other poorer countries are keeping a close watch.

Wealthier countries are more concerned, especially those with strong currencies as crypto especially Bitcoin, poses a great threat.

Bitcoin is definitely here to stay.... Read More

Tenant changed lock - is the landlord obliged to pay?

Perhaps we landlords all have common sense which most tenants probably don’t so, maybe we should be more understanding.

I have a tenant who in May of this year left her key in the flat. She sent me a text asking if I had a spare key. I informed her that I did but could not give a time that I could come as I was at a meeting but would probably be in around a couple of hours. She said she would speak to her mum and get back to me. A few minutes later she said her mum agreed to pay for a locksmith to come out. I asked her how much the locksmith was going to charge, and she said she did not know.

I later found out that the locksmith had cost her £215 which I thought was daylight robbery and outrageous as, the locksmith managed to open the door without changing or damaging the lock (does not say much for lock company). This did however to an extent annoy me as, the tenant is on benefits and at the time owed me £1800 and was at her mum’s waiting to go home where there was no real emergency to get into her flat.

So it all seems that perhaps Jaje and such tenants have no concept of money but at least, my tenant did not ask me to pay anything towards the costs.... Read More

Tenant changed lock - is the landlord obliged to pay?

I would agree with the landlord. £250 for a lock that can be purchased for £60 is utter theft and totally unreasonable. I am assuming the locks are like for like. I agree that the landlord should only compensate you for reasonable costs.

I also think that you should have asked more than one emergency locksmith for estimates for the work before just engaging one. You may have done so, however it does not appear that you did.

The above is just my opinion and I am not a solicitor..... Read More
