    I totally disagree JPK. I refuse to be told whom to let to and need to know the full facts on anyone who wants to rent from me - warts and all! I see a lot of benefit tenants in my work for another...

    I often use an agent for 'tenant find only' and sign only a very basic agreement to pay them a fixed fee if they find me a tenant to my specifications.

    Welcome.

    You need to be in control not the agent and they have told you fibs so this is not a good start. Unless you feel they will do a good job I might move on to another agent.

    I couldn't read all of that. Trading standards as suggested and get on with it before weather gets cold.

    In short no. The fact you have the facility of a bath does not make the place uninhabitable.

    Go and see the 'private tenancy officer' at you local council - there will be one and complain to them...

    Public liability insurance comes with the buildings insurance as arranged by the Freeholder but it is up to you to insure the contents of your flat.

    Finally got the proper electrician out to this on Wednesday and he soon found cables joined with just tape under the bath! - I missed that. Took whole lot out and started again. £130 well spent.

    I'm a bit confused never mind you.

    1. You own a leasehold flat and used an agency to let it and manage it for you and now you want to end that contract. Does that sound right?

    LOL! Gyproc is plasterboard and that is certainly not water or tenant proof. You could get someone to ceramic tile it or tack UPVC sheet onto it.

    I must admit I don't think I'd like having tenants living next door to me. My office is next door to some of mine and that is just about as near as I want to be. Near enough to be re-assuring and...

    Daughter aged 20 - that is disgusting! Even if the judge sides with him the best he can get is a stay of 42 days.

    When you say 'gas safety check' what do you mean exactly.

    A Gas Safety Certificate issued after an inspection by a Gas Safe registered engineer is what you need.
