    AST and letting agent

    As I understand it the agent is also acting as stake holders in respect of the deposit paid by the tenant I don't know if this makes any difference as I read custodial and insurance protected deposit there is no need to re-register Is there any other type of TDP in operation

    AST and letting agent

    Hi my letting agent did an AST when my tenant moved in cost 100 pounds now the AST has expired And the agent has suggested letting it continue as a periodic tenancy but wants to charge me 50 pounds for a periodic tenancy Is it normal for agents to charge for this as there is no work in a periodic tenancy it just continues

    Happy New Year 2018

    They may introduce a how to let booklet same as the tenant gets a how to rent booklet And labour has pledged to make it more difficult to remove tenants, could be living in your house a long time rent free, i guess it saves the government housing the homeless

    Council tax budget

    The full council tax for my property is 180 pounds a month there is a 25 percent discount for single person living there, if the property is empty between tenants I still pay the full 180 pounds a month no discount for empty property. Can anyone tell me what it will be now the government is proposing a 100 percent penalty on empty properties will it double to 360 pounds a month whilst empty, or did I misunderstand.

    New carpet tax relief

    New court form for s21 evictions

    More regulations to make it more difficult to remove bad tenants and get your property back. The government won't be happy until they have forced landlords to allow tenants to live in their properties rent free, that's the direction they are going in
