    Remember all letting agents since 1st October must belong to a redress scheme, so if they have misled you in any way then you can report them if you are unable to resolve the matter with the agent. ...

    Before posting you should have read hundreds of posts about this very problem which would have provided you with the answer.

    Jon doesn't appear to have visited the forum since his original post over a month ago, as he has not posted a "thank you" or acknowledged any advice offered! This unfortunately happens too often.

    No it's acceptable, providing you don't say "Benefit Claimants" as that includes the disabled etc. Remember many lenders will tell you not to accept housing benefit claimants within the Mortgage...

    If you have a Terms of Business in writing with your agent then take it up with them, and tell them you will be sending an account for any financial loss if the matter is not resolved in your favour....

    You can reject anybody on the basis that "you didn't like the look of them" which is perfectly valid, and providing you don't contravene the Equality Act then you will be fine. I rejected somebody...

    Are LAs allowed to serve Enforcement Notices on the person who collects the rent, such as an agent? I know this is true of commercial properties and possibly block managed ones too.

    The tenant is moving out anyway, but this clause would IMO be unenforceable even if the tenant was staying.

    Speak to a mortgage broker who might be able to help you. You can't get an owner/occupier mortgage of you don't live there, and if the person is going to live there rent free then you are not...

    I think you will find that in such context they are a 'consumer'. If you read the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 it does appear to support this. The UTCCRs therefore does...

    I had a tenant who turned into an alcoholic. Here are examples of how I found it when he went into hospital! Took three days to clear up and an age to redecorate.

    The agents cannot enter without your express permission (nor anybody else for that matter even having given 24 hrs written notice as the law requires). They are not entitled to use their own key...

    You might also want to consult HMRC VAT which can also give you advice.
  21. Any tenancy agreement might be "okay", but does...

    Any tenancy agreement might be "okay", but does it meet your needs? For £5 you can buy one from the RLA which is a decent document. I still think in needs tweaking though.

    "Quiet Enjoyment" is an oxymoron I'm afraid. Your accommodation does not have to be 'quiet' nor are you entitled to 'enjoy' your stay.

    You will find that this is not so; the LA will bill the owner if the tenant moves out (even during the fixed term) and has a lawful right to do so. I went into all this with a LA as I had this very...

    I wouldn't bother with S.8 (Ground 8 presumably?) as you still need to re-serve the PI. I would do this now then start again with a new S.21 Notice, as it will guarantee you possession whereas S.8...

    If you managed to use the link before the Moderator removed it then you could have seen the clause (as I did). I thought it wouldn't pass any "fairness" test. Perhaps the OP could re-post the...
