    I foresee an outbreak of LLs buying new kitchen and bathrooms and expensive sofas.

    I would prefer the two forums to remain separate.

    Not all student lets are HMOs and certainly not all licensable HMOs. Also, 'Student Letting' includes university Halls of Residence and private...

    I think the word 'forummers' must be spelled with two 'm's. That's probably where you're going wrong.

    Incidentally, your tenant-neighbours probably only invited you to their party so that you...

    Sounds pretty standard letting agent garbage to me. Dispute it, as advised.

    In any case, most contracts stipulate that the deposit cannot be used for rent.

    That would be 'earn or learn', then.

    You can reasonably refuse to allow a letting agent to search through your private possessions .e.g in drawers. If he suspects you have illegal substances in there he should inform the police and let...

    I disagree. Student rental properties and HMOs generally are often equipped (b the LL) with all these things (and more besides. We even leave basic cleaning products, hoover bags, etc (although we...

    I'm appalled by your insensitivity. Seriously, that's a dreadful comment.

    Thanks to ram for saving me the trouble of voicing that viewpoint.

    I have no quarrel with you, Mod2. I think you do a professional job and I appreciate that you can't please all the people all...

    If the tenancy is due to start next Thursday, you are cutting it a bit fine expecting to get the document checked and if necessary redrafted in time. Plus, not all solicitors are clued up about...

    Your last statement only applies to the fixed term.

    After that, i.e. when the tenancy becomes statutory periodic ('rolling' or 'month by month') the expiry of correctly-given notice given by...

    Probably not. But I am delighted to hear that they changed something after people complained.

    Not necessarily. We installed some cut-to-fit IKEA blackout blinds in our student house 10 years ago and 5 out of the 6 are still going strong. Good value at £10 each.

    I agree with ram, btw - I...

    So you went to a wildlife park and felt peeved because the animals didn't live up to your (possibly unrealistic) expectations.

  24. No. They cannot write something into the contract...

    No. They cannot write something into the contract which disadvantages the tenant by attempting to 'override' the statutory provision (as outlined in my post #2). The clue is in the name : statutory....

    If this is a normal AST which becomes periodic after the initial fixed term expires, then it is only the LL who must give you two months' notice (to expire at the end of a tenancy period).
