Should I proceed with offering a tenancy agreement?

I personally wouldn't set up an AST with them if you cannot gain RGI - After the 12 months' rent, what redress do you have if they don't pay? Especially as The Government will be removing s21 at some stage. Plus, if you don't have RGI and they stay on UC, how do you gain 'An Attachment to Earnings Order'. I would say no if it was me, think about after the 12 months' has passed and what risk you will take going forward.... Read More

We are now in a completely different operating environment

Couldn't agree more!! Plus RGI Insurance also. I use Alan Boswell for this and they are fab and extremely reasonable. I've been able to insure all my tenants with RGI even through this pandemic. You're spot on though Dr Ros, Guarantors are a must in these awful times for Landlords, too!... Read More

This is a Joke - Judges rule EPC served?

It was Anthony Gold Solicitors who won the case. Although this was a case based on a Gas Safety Certificate, it will apply for an EPC also. I would have a chat with these Solicitors if you're still worried at all, but quote the ruling to your tenants. https://www.anthonygold.co.uk/latest/blog/court-of-appeal-rules-in-favour-of-landlord-in-section-21-notice-gas-safety-case/...

This is a Joke - Judges rule EPC served?

Hi Michael, please don't worry, there was indeed a landmark case called Trecarrell - v - Rouncefield which ruled in the Landlord's favour. Therefore, providing you let your tenant have the EPC (take a witness and ask the witness to sign that they have witnessed you deliver the EPC either through their door or better still ask the tenant to sign for it, you will be able to serve a valid s21 once the courts allow this again from the 24th August 2020 (in England). https://www.judiciary.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Approved-judgment-Trecarrell-House-Ltd-v-Rouncefield-18-06-2020.pdf...

Third of landlords looking to shrink portfolios

They can add me to their statistics too, as I'll be selling my properties, as soon as the New Year! If you poke a bear too much it will become retaliatory....At the end of the day, we are a business, not a .org... Read More
