Help please - criminal and bankrupt tenant won't leave

Ela, afraid you just have to go through the due legal process and sending in the bailiffs is the final part of the process. When they go change the locks. No point in debating points of reason with the tenant, she appears not to be a reasonable person! Next time make sure you vet your tenant and only let to those who pass the vetting process - insurance companies are becoming more interested in economic status of tenants. Don't feel bad about it - it's business and you are not alone, many Landlords have been caught out in this way, so learn from it and move on and find a good tenant! Good Luck.... Read More

Lets not forget it was George Osbourne and Co. who brought in all the new taxation against Landlords, yes a Tory government so no point in hammering Labour, Tories are worse. Also, a periodic tenancy is just like an open ended tenancy and providing there remains adequate criteria for seeking procession of your property then there is little to fear. The system as it stands gives tenants over 4 months to vacate ( 2 months for the first notice and same for stage 2, if they still don't go then you call the bailiffs and this takes a few weeks) seems reasonable, it takes awhile for tenants to find new suitable accommodation. All Landlords legal expenses are tax deductable!... Read More

I did indeed, the loan has to be repaid. In the past, lenders have usually allowed join applicants to take over full responsibility the mortgage and remove the name of the deceased. They are less likely to approve that since the credit crunch as they are trying to recoup cheap money and lend it on new terms which are far less competitive. Some lenders have stopped lending altogether (e.g. Mortgage Express, Capital Home Loans and Irish Permanent) and are actively seeking to reduce their loan books wherever possible. What did you think of the calculators by the way? Link to comment... Read More
