Church of England Diocese tenant eviction?

I’ve been lucky/careful with my tenants over the years and have only needed to evict one tenant in over 14 years. I didn’t know how and did think about asking here on 118 but decided on using the services of Landlord Action. It was one of my better moves! If you don’t know what to do or how to do it and the matter is serious get the experts in. Would you reroof your own roof or employ a contractor?
Good luck which ever route you take.... Read More

Urgent tenancy help required please?

This request shows the value of this site. We have a tenant looking for advice so she is engaging with a site which many will be thinking is set up to benefit landlords. The first response is from a landlord advising the tenant on how to safeguard her interests. Well done to Property 118!!
That said if your landlord has changed the tenancy and is now being heavy handed telling you to get out in a matter of days you may wish to consider the landlords obligations to you. Did you give a deposit, was it protected? Were you supplied with all the necessary paperwork, EPC, how to rent information etc etc. I don't condone tenants being difficult but if a landlord tells a tenant they have days to leave don't be surprised if they bite back if they can. That's why I always treat my tenants as people not just a source of income.... Read More

Suspicious Activities - How do I inspect?

If you think a criminal activity is taking place and you inform the police also ensure you tell them you will supply keys to the property otherwise you will end up having to pay for the repairs to the front door as the police won't if they find evidence of an offence, and that could be the smallest amount of weed.

Make regular checks a condition of your AST and carry them out, it's self survival these days.... Read More

Shelter misleading the public about its finances

This article proves the need for a new landlord body that truly represents landlords to be established such as the new body Larry Sweeney is proposing. If Shelter were to be the subject of its first campaign it would go someway to dealing with the housing crisis and the problems facing renters and landlords.
As well addressing the hypercritical press releases put out by Shelter for a landlord body to be seen as supporting good tenants can only be to the good of all good landlords. In the meantime perhaps landlords should start addressing their MPs and bringing the farce that is Shelter to their attention. I will certainly be writing to my MP, for what he's worth!!...

New Landlord Association seeking pledges

I'd be happy to join an organisation that truly represents landlords and the membership fee suggested is a no brainer, what's to loose? That's less than people pay for a morning coffee over a couple of months.... Read More
