Mick, ,may be they found out you have a bank account that pays good deal of interest and so they are paying that money safely into yours only to claw it back with that good deal of interest😜

Lack of Justice in Housing - Legal Blackmail

why everyone hates landlords in UK in particular, ever wondered why this unfairness exists, here is my possible answer, we done well in our jobs and businesses, made a fair bit of money, so we thought let us invest this money in bricks and mortar, the return is greater than if we invested in other sectors, not only the property value goes up on average many time above rate of interest banks and other savings accounts offer, the risk is indeed far less in bricks, properties are insured, your savings are not insured as much, with £85K cap offered by FSCS, if you had £500K you would need at least 6 different unrelated bank accounts to protect that life long savings, so we end up buying properties, and rent them out, but what if we did not buy them, then the price of properties would be well within the reach of average hard working earner, he or she could then afford to buy their own property instead of renting, as property prices go up and up faster than the rate of inflation, and many landlords are greedy bunch, trying to maximise profits instead of keeping rents low and that certainly would calm the situation down with tenants, most who are only a few hundred pounds short of getting a mortgage, so perhaps banks have an equal part in this game, if they offered higher return, and easier mortgage lending then may be the shortage of housing and bad feelings may go away and normality returns, house prices are unsustainable, the house price bubble is likely to break when more and more people can't afford high rents and are made homeless, so the Government starts to churn more legislation for landlords instead of looking at the root cause of this anger between tenants and landlords. This means BTL mortgage should be banned as this gives landlords to purchase more property for them to rent out and less for the ones who want to buy their own, hence the prices are going up ridiculously high, even as a landlord myself, I never needed a mortgage as I worked very hard and ran a business that made profit with which I purchased my rented property....

Lack of Justice in Housing - Legal Blackmail

In my life I have had tenants who have broken many of the terms of the tenancy, like not keeping the house clean enough, gardens filled with rubbish and I know usually what that means is when they go it will be me who will have to put all that rubbish in my car and dispose it off at a local council tip, making several trips, not adhering to advice on how to ventilate bathrooms after taking a shower, not to leave wet clothes to dry indoors and particularly on radiators, to use bathroom cleaning products to keep mildew from growing around the silicone sealant, between the tile grout, toilet pans so darkened you cannot see the bottom, they do not tend to care much about their own hygiene, yet not one tenant has been evicted on any retaliatory ground by me, even those who actually came close to physically abuse me, cursed me, paid no rent and had a cheek to open a can of beer in my face when I object or protest with them rather quite fairly that they have the bloody money to buy beers and cigarettes yet claim they are hard up and can't pay their ren, according to my view the only most important thing any tenant facing hardship is to save on unnecessary spending, like beers and cigarettes, or other luxuries, first priority is the food and clothes and a roof over your head, luxuries can wait. It is quite insulting to see such tenants claiming hardship yet their beers never stop flowing! proof is open the bins and see they are half filled with empty cans of beers, I will never agree to that in a million years, tenants doing this are irresponsible, they are destroying roof over their own head as far as I am concerned. There are no two monkeys about it, me and my family had lived on rented accomodation back in the 70s, we always made sure that our rent reached the landlord on time. Indeed I have one tenant who pays me rent dead on the date come what may. Retaliatory eviction can occur when tenants are unduly very demanding, especially when they pay you rent, one such tenant once gave me an ultimatum to replace the oven as it is not working, she said she has paid me 6 months rent upfront and so no excuse not to get her a new oven, and do you know what she did not even study the oven instructions which clearly stated the time clock must be first set in order for the oven to work properly....

Lack of Justice in Housing - Section 21

Mkhan, you stated you have already got the possession order from the court, but chose to give the middle man an extra month, just don't give him any more time go for the Bailiffs and get them all out since you have already given him enough time to serve notice to his subtenants. If his subtenants bring an unlawful proceedings it would be against the middle man I believe, you have rightfully gained your possession order. All you need to do is to paste a Bailiffs Notice on the front door, all subtenants would know the door locks are going to be changed and they will need to get out before that, that is my strong belief, but i could be wrong so wait and see what others have to say on the legality of this....
