    All agents should have such clauses in their T&Cs as they accept payments on behalf of a third party.

    So... How does it make "a huge difference if it is rent, rather than another bill"?

    So you're saying that using Direct Debit for rent is actually safer that using that method of payment for other services or goods since a recall is less likely to be a 'valid action'...

    It is extremely common for companies to collect periodic payments by direct debit. I don't see that makes a difference whether it is rent or any other bill.

    Why would that term be unfair?
    It seems quite standard and reasonable to me. Actually, it seems reasonable even without an explicit term. The agent is collecting rent on behalf of his principal and...

    AST tenant and head lease

    Does anyone know if an AST tenant whose landlord is a leaseholder is automatically bound by the terms of the head lease, or whether there must be an explicit reference to these terms in the AST...

    A letting agent has a duty to act on behalf on his principal with reasonable care, skill, and diligence. He cannot expect to sit there like a robot and only move when precisely instructed how to.

    Councils could do much more to check properties right now.

    From your suggestion, JP, I picture council employees watching TV on comfy sofas:
    - "Hey, shouldn't you do some work?"
    - "Nah, we...

    Last time I checked the wording of the new regulation, it does not say anything about periodic checks. Therefore the situation will remain exactly as it is now.



    The regulation is explicit that...

    If the agent knew that OP intended to move back to the property at the end of the fixed term tenancy he should have advised him to serve a s.21 notice. Arguably the agent therefore did not do his job...

    So slimy...

    There are heaps of regulations. The best way to fight rogue landlords is to enforce them.

    Ah so you haven't got any receipt, just the previous landlord's word that he would return the deposit.
    If that's the only evidence you have then I am afraid you are stuffed until the deposit is in...

    For a judge to look at whether the tenancy is an assured or assured shorthold tenancy the point must be raised.
    IMHO it can be raised either because OP seeks possession through a notice to quit or...

    This clause is standard and does not tell you whether the tenancy is an AST or not.

    If you followed the s.21 route I doubt that your tenant would contest it on the basis that the tenancy was not...

    They could not sell the propane if it did not belong to them.
    If it belonged to you then it still does, and either they made a mistake or conned the buyer.

    If you have good evidence that it is...

    You all in this together as joint-tenants.

    If I were your landlord, I'd start by claiming on the deposit.
    In my opinion the fact that the items are not listed on the initial inventory is not...

    You do not want to "screw your landlord over" but you are looking at ways to wiggle out of paying for the damage you caused... OK.
