  1. A resident comes before the owner, and a...

    A resident comes before the owner, and a non-resident tenant cannot always be considered the owner.
  2. No, that's not what I said. The landlord may...

    No, that's not what I said.
    The landlord may become liable for CT even when the tenancy is continuing.
  3. That's not true in general. Even in cases where...

    That's not true in general.
    Even in cases where it is indeed true, if the tenant has notified the council that he left then the landlord will have to argue with the council.

    The tenancy agreement...
  4. The utilities bills may not be the landlord's...

    The utilities bills may not be the landlord's business, but the status of the council tax certainly is.

    I think that it is perfectly reasonable and fair that a landlord not refund the deposit...
  5. What T&Cs? There is no contract between the...

    What T&Cs?
    There is no contract between the building owner and the utilities company, so any T&Cs are irrelevant.

    What could happen is that they change the law, as they did specifically for water...
  6. What is the basis for drawing such a black...

    What is the basis for drawing such a black picture?
    What could suggest any form of fraud?

    Now, there may be pros and cons for each option, but it is certainly not black and white.
  7. What sort of problems?

    What sort of problems?
  8. If the rent is very low the tenancy wouldn't be...

    If the rent is very low the tenancy wouldn't be an AST, and if you do not charge any rent then it may not even be a tenancy but a licence. Either of which would be good for you (no minimum tenure...

    So basically the paragraph from your previous post would be safely ignored. Is that right?

    It may seem obvious here because the dates won't be part of the new tenancy but I'm always wary of...

    Her rent is significantly below market, and it seems that the tenancy is periodic, therefore you could just serve a s.13 notice increasing the rent to market level.

    How would that be interpreted from the 1st July under the replacement SPT?

    Another reason why HMRC would not take a dim view of OP using the accrual basis.

    I'm sure that this is common.
    Any link to any of these case law?

    Perhaps also worth checking with the deposit scheme how to handle that.
    If it pulls the whole stack of paperwork and/or requires to pay then it may quickly become not worth it for the sake of £50...

    Hmm, the revenue/accrual basis is the correct, recognised accounting method.
    The cash method is accepted as a concession for small businesses.

    As such, if OP were to use the accrual method HMRC...

    Can a resident landlord even grant a Rent Act tenancy?
    Why would the landlord moving our confer less rights to the tenant (which is what an assured tenancy would do)?

    Making stuff up is never useful advice.

    No-one argues that details of the law should be given every time someone asks for advice. In fact, I would not rely on anyone but a solicitor with a...

    This is very confusing. A 'residential landlord' means someone who lets residential property, not a live-in landlord.

    When did 'emergency' morphed into 'life-threatening emergency'?

    I think you haven't understood my point, and that these latest posts do not bring anything to this thread.

    Except that there cannot be sound advice before the relevant legislation is analysed and understood (as much as possible).
    Not reading, and not understanding the legislation is how we end up with...

    I think it is established that a right of entry that is limited enough does not go against exclusive possession.
    Moreover, if the landlord has a right of entry he cannot be trespassing when using...

    It's extra red tape, yet again, and will ultimately favour larger, established agents by increasing barriers to entry.
    As for the authorised schemes, it's like the deposit schemes: they now have a...

    8th to 14th included is 7 days: 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.

    You did not have to leave on the 14th and you should have negotiated how such issues would be dealt with.
