Government to assist vulnerable with PRS deposits or first month's rent

I have been taking UC tenants, where the council have been providing the deposit and first month's rent for benefit tenants for about 3 years now. In that time, I have lost tens of thousands of pounds in lost rent where, tenants stopped paying rent, and the eviction process supported them in that they got a free barrister and solicitor through legal aid which either stopped, or delayed the eviction for months due to paper work technicality....

If you think councils are a pain to deal with, you have yet to experience Universal Credit. Dealing with councils are a breeze compared to universal credit where you will lose rent on practically every occasion or at least I have and there is nothing one can do about it.... Read More

Rent calculation on Periodic Tenancy termination by tenants

I am in a similar situation where last week, a tenant gave me a notice to leave where she ended the tenancy on a date which was not at the end of the periodic month and this was on advice from someone I believe from the council. The tenancy agreement clause stated that the tenancy must end at the end of the periodic month.

It was pointed out to me that section 5 of the Housing Act 1988 applied which I did not find easy to understand.

I was informed that since the fixed term had ended, one month's notice had to be given and could end at any time and did not need to end at the end of the periodic month.

Just out of interest, can a landlord have a clause stating that two month's notice is required and if so, would this be valid during the periodic term of the tenancy. Landlords have to give two months notice to terminate the tenancy S21.... Read More

DWP are sending me claimants NI numbers - ICO complaint

I have dealt with case managers where I really thought I was getting somewhere as they appeared to be concerned and appeared to want to help but that was all part of the training at “Universal Credit School”. Give the customer false hope and then have a good laugh about it and add insult to injury by keeping silent and ending all further communication.
I think anyone wanting a job with UC would only qualify if they got the training at “Universal Credit School" and past with distinction. Anyone with a lower grade would not be employed. That is why they are continually recruiting.
I cannot believe I have spent so much time on these comments with all the work I have but UC must be exposed to those that may not have yet had this experience which if one can avoid must at all costs do so. I would not say don't take benefit tenants but weigh up all the odds when considering. Benefit tenants that come to me say that they have tried everywhere but no one is interested.....many of wish have been looking for over a year. I wonder why!... Read More
