Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019
About 4 weeks ago 124
I have a tenant in a flat which is in a block of four, I only own one of the four, my flat is fully managed by a reputable agent.
The owner of the flat next door is complaining that my tenant is very noisy in the early hours, screaming at her child, & allegedly banging a hammer on a metal bed???
The neighbour says that another flat owner is also not happy & they are going to complain to the council & Police
So there are 4 main players, the tenant, the complaining neighbours, my agents, & me the Landlord.
Should I just let the other 3 sort it out & see what happens, or am I the landlord (who try’s his best to avoid meeting either tenants or their neighbours) held accountable? my agent suggested that I am.
The tenant is a single mum on DSS, the rent gets paid on time, & the place is immaculate.
There is a lot of competition for tenants in my area, & to say the least I am peed off having to pay council tax on empty properties.
Any advice welcome.
