    You can issue a dateless s21. In order to ensure that a complete 2 months notice has been given, no matter what the court think, you would be wise to allow 3 months between service and applying to...

    Something that has not been mentioned is that YOU should be wary too. Having dad redecorate the place and having new flooring fitted could make a dump look lovely - who's to say the landlord won't...

    I'd add "as provided by section 5 of the 1988 Housing Act" - just to emphasis you know what you're talking about and they can't bluff you.

    VanW23, can you please clarify whether your agreement with the agent states specifically that they are the tenant? An agent works for you, but occasionally although they may carry out the profession...

    If you don't know the details of your new landlord - ask for it in Writing.

    A new landlord who doesn't give you this information (unprompted) before the 1st rent day commits a summary offence and...

    Callan,

    You are quite right, the obligation is there, but it is not unknown for tenants to stop paying when under the threat of eviction - eviction causes them costs too. Now the landlord can...

    The mortgage company would have had the same rule if you had not gone via the broker, it's not his fault. Apart from which, many deals are ONLY available through a broker.

    They cant. Unless you specifically include a break clause, the term is for the duration shown on page one - usually in the form of "from 30/4/15 to 29/10/15" or "from 30/4/15 for a period of 6...

    Hi Watsong

    I guess the general opinion is that it's not illegal, so long as it is not 'secretive' - you see the only area you 'rent' and can be held accountable for is your room (where there are...

    If your agreement says nothing about what happens at the end of the 6 months, then you are correct, you have a statutory periodic tenancy. In which case, 1 month ending on the (first or) last day of...

    Joint tenancies are for people who know and trust each other, this doesn't apply in this situation and landlord/agent are simply botching things to save admin. No matter how good it is, I strongly...

    In court, any ambiguity will be taken whichever way benefits the tenant (with a contract written by the landlord). In this case, the best interpretation for the tenant is that the fixed term ran...

    Although I suspect the others may be right, a lot depends on the relationship here. It is possible that the person claiming to be the landlord was the landlord, and you were the 'superior landlord'....

    Don't worry about the agreement.

    Until the fixed term comes to an end, neither of you can end the tenancy without full agreement of both tenants AND landlord.

    Once the fixed term is up, either...

    Unfortunately, the deposit was hers. Not only should you have protected the deposit, you should have provided 'prescribed information' to both tenant and grandmother.

    I agree, this could be a CPT (contractual), not a SPT (sect 5).
    Haymck, can you look at your contract and see what it says (if anything) will happen at the end of the initial 6 months?

    Are they separate for council tax and was the conversion (if post 1992) done to building regs standard?

    JPkeats comment is spot on, the liability for council tax lays with the landlord if there is no one resident - iirc it's the 1992 local government finance act.

    How you recover that from your...

    Lawcruncher,

    Agreed, but they do in the lower courts. Such decisions can be appealed but sometimes the cost / hassle is considered pointless by a demoralised claimant who has just (unfairly) lost...
