    My tenants, who moved in seven months ago, have been receiving post for the previous tenants which they have been reposting 'return to sender'. Now they have received what appear to be final demands...

    Invalid notice given to tenant

    My friend has rented a house since 27th April 2013 and has paid a monthly rental by bank transfer on the 27th of each month. The landlord has chosen never to issue a written contract. She paid a...

    We set up the 99%:1% split on purchase as tenants in common (so it wasn't an "earlier transfer")

    On this property, the revised ownership split would only be to around 80%:20% in order to utilise...

    If you do a 99%:1% ownership split between the lower and higher rate taxpayer, that minimises income tax.

    Is it then ok to revise the percentage split before the property is sold so as to utilise...

    No, the property is not mortgaged.

    The intention is to sell the properties over time, probably one per year, to make use of CGT allowances, and replace them with...

    No End of tenancy inspection

    I have a friend who is moving out at the end of her tenancy today.

    The agent has said (by phone) they cannot do the inspection today, nor can the landlord, and so my friend should simply return...

    I hadn't spotted the FAQ referred to in post #22 above. That clearly says there's no need to take any action on the deposit when extending the tenancy.

    Having thought about it, I too am not...

    I agree, though that was the advice on "how to re-protect" given to me by the DPS. The findings of the case above determine only that the deposit was deemed to have been re-paid and re-submitted (to...

    Maybe 're-protection' relates more to deposit insurance schemes (which I don't use). Do those (unlike the custodial scheme) have a fixed end-point, and therefore need extending? Other than the fact...

    Deposit re-protection

    One of my tenancies has come to the end of the AST and has now started a SPT. I know, following Superstrike, I need to re-protect the deposit and re-issue the PI, but what do I do to "re-protect"...

    If that's the case (ie: STP = new tenancy, therefore needs re-issue of PI), surely that logic would require the original deposit to be returned and a new deposit taken (though not in that order)...
