    I would suggest that you learn to express your opinion in a way that doesn't come across as rude and facile.

    Is that a rather imperfect rolling eyes emoticon?...

    Is that a rather imperfect rolling eyes emoticon? Or a face-palming one? Either way it's useful!
  3. Thanks, monkeysee, that looks rather interesting.

    I've been rather absent from the forum lately so it seems I've missed a new development? Please could you link?

    My #11 post was based on an assumption that rent is payable monthly. Of course, this assumption may be wrong. OP has yet to clarify.

    It's an obvious typo and the term runs 20th Dec 2013 to 19th Dec 2014. That is obviously what both parties to the contract understood when executing the contract.

    The contract is valid, and the T...

    Did you try to ascertain the T's current address via a tracing agent?


    The court expects you to follow civil court procedure rules for serving a claim. If you tried to ascertain the T's current...

    All I know is that if you enforce, or try to enforce, the CCJ, the bad debt will show on the tenant-debtor's credit history.

    There are some CCJs where it doesn't happen automatically, but I'm not...
  9. Nothing has changed. The death of a tenant...

    Nothing has changed. The death of a tenant doesn't 'cancel' a tenancy. And the marriage of a tenant doesn't change the identity of the formerly-single tenant.

    You proceed as if nothing had...

    Are you LL or T?

    Which scheme is currently protecting the deposit and is it the LL or agent who is the scheme member?

    Please give more details of the change of LL or agent.
  11. In order to apply for a possession order via the...

    In order to apply for a possession order via the accelerated route you do not write a letter to a judge, you must submit form N5b to the county court (together with the court fee etc).

    You are being entirely reasonable in wanting to wait a week or two (or three+ if you needed to get quotes to cost a claim against the deposit) before agreeing about the deposit refund.

    However,...

    It seems fairly straightforward. OP is currently living abroad, wants to DIY a claim when eventually back in the UK, so wants to know the time limitation on bringing an action for (presumably) a...

    No. A contractual agreement can trump a statutory periodic tenancy.


    Okay, so that would seem to be a contractual agreement - which trumps statute. And the contractual agreement may be written or...

    Firstly, you need to understand that a s.21 notice is not a notice to quit, and does not end the tenancy nor oblige the T to vacate at notice expiry. It has zero effect on the tenancy. All it does is...

    Of course the contract has a legal effect - it's a contract to create a tenancy and is binding on both parties. If a party pulls out then the other party may seek to remedy any losses consequent...

    Thank you Lawcruncher

    Seasons greetings to all, but especially to Lawcruncher, who unwittingly helped me with festive litigation drafting (with a festive deadline). I hit a major problem and had no-one to turn to for...

    You need to understand that the legal tenant is both tenants jointly. Both of them are jointly and individually liable for all of the rent until the tenancy ends.

    Even if the male tenant moves out...

    Yes.

    A s.21 notice has zero effect on the tenancy. It does not end the tenancy and it does not oblige the T to vacate. It merely entitles the LL to apply for a possession order after the notice...

    I assume you are a novice landlord if you allowed a T to move in without paying a month in advance and without at least the equivalent of a month's rent as deposit in cleared funds. What happened...

    Ram is making it all sound rather terrifying. It's not.

    It's fine to divide up the house and let the upper part. You just have to be aware of and/or comply with any relevant law.

    There's...

    Claiming for deposit non-compliance over £100 is a bit of a non-starter. It'd cost you over £1K in court fees, you'd need legal advice, and the court may order only between 1x and 3x the value of an...

    My comments relate purely to landlord/tenant law. Your question has nothing to do with planning law.
