Dream tenants threatened by Housing Trust shared fencing issue

Your land registry docs should include a drawing showing the property boundaries marked in red. Where there is a letter 'T' mark attached to a section of the garden boundary fencing, you are responsible for the maintenance of that section. No 'T' mark and next door is responsible for that section. A 'T' mark on both sides of the same fence indicates shared responsibility.
All very well and good, but if next door doesn't want to fix their fence you haven't got much leverage to encourage them to do it - this I know as I have this problem at present. I will probably end up fixing it myself to avoid more frustration - luckily I have the tools/skills.

Have a look at this website, it may help: http://www.boundary-problems.co.uk... Read More

Yes, the Conservatives have been attacking the PRS but a Labour government under Corbyn would put us in a worse situation.

In order to implement some of his more extreme hard-left loony ideas, Corbyn needs us to be out of the EU. Let's get Brexit out of the way before we start worrying too much which bunch of clowns is going to run our wonderful country.... Read More

Tenant deposit cap is cut to 5 weeks by government!

Selling up when the current tenants move out is definitely an option for me, especially if Corbyn and Co win the next election. Income will reduce of course so I'll have to spend the kids inheritance, but then again if JC does get in, the IHT allowance will probably be cut! Work hard, save hard, provide for retirement, do the right things and get penalised for it...!! Grumpy old man but.... why not. Look at what the daft sods are doing to Brexit - is it any surprise that they're destroying the PRS??... Read More

Heating to 21 degrees?

Check the CH system. Make sure the radiators are all primed and outlet valves are adjusted correctly for water flow. Check the room thermostat temperature calibration, it could be controlling at a temperature lower than the actual set-point. Check the boiler water temp setting, it could be set too low. The living room radiator could be partially blocked. The rad thermostatic valve could be set wrong or knackered etc,. etc! Failing that get it checked out by a "professional".... Read More
