    OK, I don't actually feel like I want to take a holding deposit before I have met all of the applicants.

    I like emwithme's method, but I think I may short list a couple to reference in case one of...

    I Know This Has Been Asked Before :-(

    and, probably by me :-(


    When deciding on new tenants, at what stage should I accept a holding deposit and also, is it OK to accept more than one holding deposit (obviously the deposit would be...

    Hi

    It's Kent/SE London.

    I've had a read up and I can see that I have to serve notice etc. It is just a little frustrating that the chap has now changed his mind from 'yes, go ahead - to...

    'You are obligated to serve Notice on them under it - assuming the occupying Neighbour is an Owner under the Act'

    Sorry, can you clarify the above statement for me (Owner under the Act)? The...

    Brilliant. Thank you.

    I hadn't actually given any thought to the guttering overhanging. But in actual fact, there is a lean to in place - which has been there for 30 years, and guess where the...

    It was very shrewd. I sold the flat at a good price and then bought the house BMV and renovated it. Even after factoring in my CGT bill, I didn't lose a penny and I have better quality stock. Also...

    Location of the ex-council Freehold would be a key to help you decide. I have an ex-Council house in a good location - 90% of the houses are now owner/mortgage. The other houses near by all...

    Another example is, windows in need of replacement - say, single glazed, unless of course it is a listed building, the likelihood would be you would replace with double glazing which could be seen as...

    Hi

    I'm having a small single story side extension built. I've had the go-ahead from the council, obtained a near-build-over license from the water-board and I was all ready to go. Neighbour had...

    I wonder how many other tenants have been billed £2500 - assuming 4, that's £10k for a 'patch up job'. This would certainly raise questions with me and I would want to know exactly how much the...

    The landlord probably posted the S21 in front of an independent witness. The witness signs a statement which gets presented to the courts as evidence of proof of service.

    I don't think that all landlords tie dss tenants with the same brush. Many tenants in receipt of HB make excellent tenants - you still get plenty of bad paying tenants who are working.

    Personally...

    A quick conversation with many applicants rules some people out straight away - that's even before you get to referencing. On both properties, we've had enquiries where people are just about to...

    The houses are good decent properties, but I truly believe this response is because I'm in the South East and there is a huge shortage of property.

    Yes, we have one of those houses - the tenants have been with us for 9 months and now leaving. Previous tenants managed to stick it out for about 18 months. Both leaving because of the anti-social...

    I was pulling his leg about being married. You don't have to be married to earn any specific tax breaks - not that I know of anyway. There are benefits of joint ownership - ie 2 x CGT allowance...

    It won't affect your tenants.

    Who manages the tenants deposit though? Did the letting agent place it in a scheme?

    From now on you either manage the property yourself, shouldn't be a problem...
