    ram,

    Thanks for that. I did think it was a bit of a long shot!

    I guess my thinking is that the overpayment is either due to administrative error or otherwise a mis-declaration from the tenant....

    theartfullodger,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Of course I know what rent has been received, I receive a monthly statement and payment from my agent. What I don't know is what the arrears are at this...
  3. Section 21 ignored, court proceedings to evict

    Hi. The tenant in one of my properties lost her job some time ago. Her rent is part paid by housing benefit, just over 50% of it. I've tried to assist her staying in the property with various top up...

    theartfullodger,

    I bought the property with the tenant in place so wasn't involved in the process of agreeing the tenancy and its conditions etc. Could I ask what PI is? My agent served the...

    Section 21 question

    Notice issued by hand in September, expires at the end of November.

    A bit of background before I ask my question: The tenant has been in the property for 2 1/2 years. Her tenancy has defaulted to...

    I prefer a hands off approach with my tenants. I don't meet them before they move in. I'm insured for damage and also take out rent guarantee insurance.

    I understand that it makes sense for the...
  9. Council tax- new tenant, whose responsibility?

    A new tenant recently moved into one of my properties following a period of just over a month when the property was empty. This particular council gives a 100% exemption on unfurnished properties for...

    That may be the case. However, taxation on wealth (through earnings and capital gains) is provided for at a national level. I'm not aware of any change in legislation that allows local authorities to...

    I had the houses rewired last week. The electrician, on lifting the...

    I'm not going to comment on the maths of this, most of it has already been said.

    Just a word from a 51 year old who had his whole life planned when he was in his twenties. Few of those things...

    Thanks. In this case, merging the thread could cause the confusion suggested in your link, rather than the other way round. As I said previously, everything that happened before was irrelevant. If...

    I agree, but I didn't mention any financial aspects. Just to reiterate, an original poster may have a better idea whether threads should be merged or not, rather than a casual onlooker.

    Thanks for that. The money order was made in September last year, on the same order as the possession. The previous landlord then decided to accept a repayment plan which was honoured for some time,...
