    An excellent example of not relying on everything said by the previous LL. Always make sure you contact the LL before the proposed tenants current LL.

    Flashback1966,

    I wouldn't use Gum Tree. I can recommend UPAD. Make sure you stipulate 'Sorry No HB'. You will still get some people trying it on. Some people have HB top up (one of my...

    Yes, it is a fair rent for the area.

    I must admit, when they took the property on it really was in a state so I guess this was the reason the rent was kept down for so long. Relatives have spent...

    Very Steep Rent Increase

    Hi

    Relatives of mine have been renting same property for 8 years. New landlord took over a few months ago - sent a letter introducing himself but no official paperwork (I think he should have...

    But what have they said about the CCJ - why haven't they satisfied it? It seems a lot of youngsters get CCJ through defaulting on mobile phone contracts. Also, why are they moving so soon from...

    How old are the radiators? This company does need reporting to the trading standards. I would also check to see if the boiler has been 'registered'- this is a legal requirement by the company...

    The papers for being a guarantor need to be executed properly. I'm not sure how this is done, although I have read on here that the Guarantors take legal advice or are at least given the opportunity...

    If it were me, I would steer well clear and go and find another property. Seems incredibly dodgy to me.

    Yes, thanks for the feedback. There are a couple of lessons to be learnt - 1, the courts are still giving out maximum penalty in cases and 2, if you are a landlord and you've had a LBA - for...

    Hippo - I'm not saying don't believe what the current agents are saying - but it's always better to go to the previous landlord/letting agent as they have nothing to lose by telling the truth if it...

    Yes it's hard to challenge an independent witness. I always serve by post. Just a normal 1st class stamp - add a few days on for delivery and just get the 'free proof of posting' from the post...

    It is two clear months. You have gone for exactly two months. I think your S21 should say landlord seeks possession 'AFTER 1st October'. I might be wrong. Others will correct me if I am.

    If you are asking for possession on 30 September today, then that notice will be invalid. How are you serving the S21 - in person with a witness or via post?

    My husband was renting a property which was being sold. He was served an S21 in good time but it suited him to stay until a couple of days before completion was due. The solicitor sent my husband a...

    Seriously, I wouldn't touch them. If you are going to do it, at least get a guarantor.

    I would pass him by. He might not know about the CCJ, but you can bet he knew about the original debt and chose not to pay. He quite possibly thought he got away scot free.

    This is pretty nasty. The tenant should be ashamed of himself (I hope Karma comes and bites him on the ass!).

    In all honesty, I don't think I could bring myself to give into the blackmail -...

    Probably not advantageous to many people (and certainly not the employer) if they are only receiving £100 per month (ie £23.00 per week) for managing or doing a bit of admin.

    I would hope that a person who manages a property wouldn't be seen 'legally' as a letting agent, and therefore would not have to register.

    It sounds like you are a protected tenant. Try not to worry. Just do as Lawcruncher suggested and I'm sure this whole matter will soon be put to bed and you will stay happily in your home.
