  1. Hi, just to update that as our tenant has complained to the council about living conditions (damp and mould due to condensation) we have offered to have trickle vents put in, get the drimaster adjusted if need be and a decorator to treat mould and decorate. The council have informed me the case is closed as they are satisfied with our response so too is the tenant. Decorator has commenced work, I want to serve a s21 (using an eviction company) but my question to you is, should I do it now or wait till the decorating is complete?

    Thank you, for responding, I have started the deposit return and like you say make repairs out of our pocket.
  5. Grampa, we were late protecting the deposit, should I arrange to have this returned ASAP?? Thanks again
  6. Thank you Grampa for your helpful reply. We do want to give notice though as till recently the tenant was on full housing benefit and still couldn't pay on time. One reason we didn't give notice was the fact that it did always come in a week later. Though she has now moved her bf in without permission and is pregnant with s 4th child putting yet more financial strain on herself. We have always responded to any repairs to be done immediately and we only installed the dry master last month and feel she is out of order going to the council. I suggested to my husband we respond to her email informing the council by offering to clean the mould and decorate with a special paint but he won't hear of it but I think it will help our case.
  7. Thank you for your replies. We installed the ventilation system to help protect the property. We fully intended to serve notice this month but am now worried with this hanging over us that the notice will be invalid. I emailed the council letting them know exactly all the maintenance work we had done. Yes the deposit is protected but we were late protecting it think I'm going to use a professional eviction company.

    Carrying on from my previous post. We did protect the deposit, but late doing so. We intend to serve a s21, would we be better to return the deposit first?? Many thanks

  10. Please can someone help? My tenant complained of damp/mould on the 14th oct, we immediately responded and even though it was lifestyle condensation we had dry master ventilation system installed early December, she's now reported us to the council about the matter!! She is always late with the rent and we'd like to give notice. I feel out of my depth
