    If you are buying with the intention of selling on straight away - that would probably be regarded as trading, so income tax at whatever rate you pay.

    Your landlord would have had to provide a copy of the original AST which will have the correct dates. You know you are not within a 'fixed term' still. Hopefully the Judge will not want to waste...

    Yes, I have paid for them. I think there is a 14 day cooling period but I'm not sure what to do? If they go belly up - isn't there a 'body' that steps in to uphold the policy?

    Does anyone have...

    Sorry, but that seems really far fetched to me. Why would you want to accept second hand furniture instead of cash? That just doesn't make sense. Did you get anything in writing?

    MisterB,

    Really? You actually visit prospective tenants in their existing property? I can see the benefits of this, but how do you instigate dropping in on them?

    You should be entitled to rent a room allowance. I hope you get the depression sorted. Running helps enormously. Sorry to hear you lost your mum at such a young age.
