    Yes, of course it would help. It is perfectly possible to fit a lock which can be locked with a key on the outside, yet easily openable by means of a thumb turn mechanism form the inside (e.g. in the...

    In which case I am sure that landlords will be happy to oblige, as long as those Ts have the courtesy always to respond to communications.

    This does begin to sound like teaching your grandmother...

    Fit your own lock (operable from the inside by means of a thumb-turn) and remove it when you move out. Fill screw holes and touch up with appropriate trim paint.

    Job sorted.

    jpkeates,

    Quite so. Logically, if joint tenants are one tenant then you should be able to contact any one of them (to give notice, advise that electrician will attend, etc), rather than contacting...

    At the risk of being hounded off the forum, I would like to say that as far as London properties are concerned I am glad to hear that the bubble is bursting. Prices for single rooms in shared houses...

    jpkeates,

    In law, nothing. In practice, the Lead T is the person who - with his or her consent and that of the other Ts - the LL can communicate with and assume that in doing so, the message will...

    jjlandlord,

    Yes, they are, because otherwise they would/should not agree to a joint tenancy in which everyone has the right to access every part of the property.

    Why should it be assumed that...

    Lawcruncher,

    The DPS insist on one named Lead T in a joint AST - presumably because the scheme is free to use and it is logical, with a joint deposit, to assume that the joint tenants can sort...

    Yes they do! (It is the only thing which makes communicating with six, seven or eight students possible, at times...)
    Not at all. The Lead T is just the one nominated for communication/deposit...

    I suppose so; it depends on your definition of 'serious'. It's the not the same as 'relevant', is it?

    Perhaps it should just be re-titled : Take a Break (off-topic threads of any kind).

    Property companies like this do my 'ed in.

    It always seem to come as a profound revelation, a huge surprise to them that there will be a big surge of student deposits to return in June and July...

    Your landlady sounds grasping and greedy to me. After a tenancy of six years she should expect to have to redecorate and she should expect the carpets to be nearing the end of their life. I would...

    Absolutely no need.

    Junior doctors are always too exhausted and sleep-deprived to have a social life, let alone a sex life. Why would they want to move anyone else in, anyway? If they wanted to...

    If as OP says 'all three are named on the contract', it seems unlikely that one is subletting. (Also, it's been drawn up by an agent and agents don't like tenants subletting).

    Sounds just like a...

    I think that is why it is relatively expensive to hire power tools. The more dangerous they are, the more it costs. The manager of a hire company I once used (to hire an electric plane) told me it...

    Yes, I'd go for your suggestion - but it means yet another non-housing sub-forum to get past before the next topic-specific forum, I suppose....

    Have to disagree here.

    It's not just any person lending any other someone else an item or tool. It's because it's a landlord and tenant, and because it's a power tool which could, if wrongly used,...

    Sadly, it really isn't worth the grief. Either do it yourself or explain that they will have to hire or buy their own. If they injure themselves on your equipment, you are liable.

    What does your tenancy agreement have to say about responsibility for keeping the garden tidy and free of weeds?

    Assuming (as is usually the case), responsibility is the T's, talk to your agent....

    Please re-title this forum

    I like this TAB forum, and I think it acts a bit like a pub, where regulars (and new members) can meet and chat, banter, debate and exchange views on a range of issues unconnected with housing. I'm...

    Hi Peter, welcome to the forum.

    I think you have answered your own question, really.

    Don't use an online letting portal if the tenants it turns up are not what you want. No, of course, they...
