I have just had a Surrender of Tenancy Agreement drafted for my brother, the story behind it is an interesting one to say the least. The property was purchased at auction a few years ago, a real bargain but it’s 250 miles away from where he lives. It was refurbished but rather than sell it......

Dispute over landlord or tenants utility bill

Agents commission on repairs rip off?

My letting agents **name removed by moderator** have just admitted to me that they deduct 12.5% commission from contractors invoices for repairs that they arrange on my behalf. This came to light as I was questioning why the quotes they get are always much higher than if I arrange the work myself. They claim that......

Unprotected deposit counter claim

A previous tenant left three months into the fixed term six month AST. No notice was given other than a cursory phone call and some texts asking what would happen with their deposit. In good faith I refunded half of the deposit. It seemed pointless to pursue them for outstanding rent and I actually felt......

Can’t get mortgage on 12th floor flat, should I buy cash?

Hi all I have seen a flat for sale in South London, a few stops away from London Bridge, so excellent location. It is advertised at £210,000 – Cash only.  This is an amazing price and based on the rent it would generate, a good solid rental yield. Now my concern is that this flat......

I am really distressed as my tenants (a lovely lady with a young son) have asked for early release (which I have granted) because she does not feel safe.  The problem is not the flat itself – she loves it. However, the blocks entrance is flimsy. It has been broken into twice in three months.......

My 6 month AST is due to end and I would ideally like to continue renting on a statutory periodic, month by month basis as I may be moving away and need the flexibility that it allows.   My landlord has offered me a “rolling 2 month tenancy” when my 6 month AST ends, with......
