    Use of the word "issue" to mean "problem".

    Yes - important point that people seem to miss when they indicate that prices just need to drop 3% to compensate.

    If that happens then you can indeed buy for the same outlay as before the change,...

    Not current information, but when I asked a broker about HMO mortgages some time ago they suggested Kent Reliance.

    £££. If correct, it could be that you've hit the jackpot.

    As you have probably gathered from the other thread, the moral aspects of taking your LL to court for this are debatable. On the one...

    Agreed.

    Also, if agent took deposit and you have not already done so, check deposit protection status.

    I have. It complicates things, but in theory it shouldn't necessarily be a major barrier. Old agent ought to be quite clear on what the tenant has paid, what their arrears are, what their...

    Yes... but I think that depends which one they leave.

    Government seeks approval from the masses, and increasingly that means disgruntled would-be home buyers or those close to them. I think in case of interest rate increases scuppering affordibility,...

    Actually, to expand/refine my previous point, if landlords sell up this will result in two opposing forces acting on rents. On the one hand the stock of rental property will shrink, hence reduced...

    This problem is particularly acute when "so" is the very first word, and all the more so when it is followed by "basically".

    It's not quite the same issue, but short/medium term I see rents going up. Government is squeezing landlords with regulation and taxes and increased risk, and that is ultimately going to get passed...

    I've got a property in a street like this. Looks like the aftermath of a wheelie bin explosion. I fear they know no shame.

    As per post #16, an agent can't attend a court hearing on behalf of the landlord. If there is a hearing the landlord has to go themselves, or appoint a solicitor to represent them if they cannot.

    Plenty of those. e.g. "I am a person who likes to do such-and-such". Meaning "I like to do such-and-such".

    Along the same lines I would add the use of "yourself", meaning "you".

    And of course...

    That's what I was going to suggest. Also, as above, buying a place with a couple of spare bedrooms and letting them could be a good way to go.

    Assuming that the rent is due monthly, yes the landlord is required to give at least one month's notice - with the increase taking effect on the first day of a rental period.

    That's not how I interpret it. I would have thought based this this that you would be allowed to let it to a single household. I have no particular knowledge on the subject, though.
