    Two weeks ago my sole tenant in his mid-thirties unfortunately died after only having been in occupation 10 days. He didn't leave a will, has no assets and I still don't know who his personal...

    You should always address any correspondence to each tenant individually for the avoidance of doubt. Any generally addressed letter to "the tenants" will not be acknowledged by anyone, and anyway is...

    There's no "normal" about it; if it's silent within the AST it is generally the landlord's responsibility, but if it is defined then it would be a poor landlord who had not passed on responsibility...

    I think the statement "broken in" means that the utility company employed a locksmith who will have gained entry without force as a result of a Court Order being granted.

    Any blanket restriction on benefit claimants such as that above is an offence under the Equalities Act 2010; however it is perfectly legal to state "No Housing Benefit Claimants" as that does not...

    Redirection of mail is between the individual and the Royal Mail, and as such is up to that person if they require mail redirection. I would say it's an unfair term if it is within the tenancy...

    This is really another case for the supplier of goods to be using the "Subject to Contract" clause to prevent anybody assuming they have a lawful contract until 'exchange'.

    I think basically a landlord should be given the opportunity to either accept or reject the new agency terms of business as they must surely be different to the one originally signed. Using a...

    Just for info:

    Used an online letting agent recently for 3 months without any luck. Plenty of leads but also plenty of not so serious prospective tenants. As it's a one bedroom unfurnished flat...

    The tenant has no obligation to sign any written agreement you might put to him, and in fact you should beware of doing so if it prejudices any rights his current tenancy bestowes upon him. You will...

    Lawcruncher and me (and others) have covered all this in another thread some time ago. The EAA 1979 is quite clear in the requirement for an agent to obtain explicit written instructions from a...

    I think any apparent wrongdoing by the agent will not be covered as TPO does not act retrospectively, prior to an agent being a member, so you will just have to put it down to experience. You could...

    It might be legal but is it compliant? If clauses concerning a sale do not meet S.18 of the Estate Agents Act 1979 (which I can guarantee will not be the case in a lettings terms of business) then...

    I think you will find the agent is bluffing and will not pursue this in court. It's called bullying. It won't cost you anything to defend it if they do but I doubt it. A County Court Judgement...
