    Are you renting it or letting it? If you're renting it and your LL wants you to instal a fire tell your LL he's crazy! If you're letting it and the T is wantaing a fire, just say no.

    No. I charge a fair rent to start with. If the tenant can't afford it they need to look for a cheaper property.

    I would continue down the S21 route. I would ask the T , in writing, for the partner's new address and say that they are also responsible for the rent of £x overdue to date plus court fees of £x and...

    My first thought was that he'd put a hammer through it. Is the hole 'foot shaped'? Don't ask me why a tenant would put a hammer through the bath - probably the same reason they put hammers through...

    I'd ask them what do they need to know about the additional licensing. Your council will be able to give you the info and you can give it to them.
  10. Cleaning service or not, what difference does it make?

    If the LL includes a room cleaning service (ie vacuuming, window cleaning, dusting) does this make any difference to the rights of the Landlord?

    Some people are telling me it does and some that...

    For me, it would depend on the reason for the T wanting to leave. One of my Ts in a HMO signed up for a 6m AST, but lost his job after one month. In this instance it is best for both parties if I...

    If it's a HMO (House of multiple occupancy) where the tenants have individual tenancy agreements, then you are responsible for the cleaning of the communal areas. This doesn't mean tidying up after...

    Do you have any evidence that you told the landlord about the defects, how long you had to wait for anything to be fixed and do you have receipts for the work/replacements?

    I'd ask the Landlord,...

    I advertise on spareroom and find a lot of tenants that way. It seems contractors look on here for short term lets. It's free to advertise but I use the Early Bird option which means prospective...

    You could show that you have savings, or a guarantor.

    As a LL I wouldn't take the risk on you. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh but if you let a situation get that bad once then you're likely to do...

    I agree with Mrs Mug - change the locks, keep the LLs locks in a safe place, and change them back when and if you leave. The LL will never know unless she tries to get in when you're not there.

    As a landlord I'd ignore them and not chase the £65. And not let them in the property either.

    Who does the cleaning of the communal parts of the building? Has that person not noticed that somebody has been sleeping in the previously unoccupied room?

    Mrs Mug - I always thought an ASt had to be for at least 6 months. I realise now I was wrong. If a LL does an ASt for 4 months does it then become...
