  1. Hi Everyone, My first time posting on here so apologies if this is covered or in the wrong place. I am the leaseholder of a flat which I rent out - as is usual, we don't own the outer building and pay maintenance and service charges. I had been renting out the flat but had always had a fairly minor damp issue - some flaking paint on a wall that would be periodically re-painted. I decided as we had a break in tenants to get it properly investigated as it seemed to be getting worse. 3 surveys confirmed there was rising damp with a defective Damp Proof Course and the pointing on the outer 2 walls was letting in moisture. The freeholder has agreed with the findings and will take on the work, but has said the following is not their responsibility: Carpets (around 8 months old, will need to be ripped up for the work) Re-plastering the interior walls which need to be chipped away to carry out the work Repainting 2-3 months loss of rent Council Tax I have contacted Direct Line who have said this is not insurable as caused by a 3rd party who have admitted liability. Does anyone have any experience of this and know what the precedent is? Many thanks
  2. Hi all, I am looking to rent a number of apartments in Bristol City Centre and Clifton. I am a chartered surveyor and rent properties out as serviced apartments. I pay market rent and look to take on agreements of 3+ years. Our requirements: - 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartments preferably without outside space. - High quality kitchen and bathroom - New or modern GCH and good water pressure. For landlords, our service provides a secure long term passive income and one point of contact for easy communication. The property will be extremely well maintained and managed. Here are some of the other benefits: TAX This is business income and you can therefore claim 100% mortgage relief on the rent. As you know, with a buy to let mortgage you can claim 75% mortgage tax relief in 2017, but only 50% in 2018, 75% by 2019 and no tax relief at all by 2020. The first £1,000 of business income does not have to be declared. MAINTENANCE The property will be kept in immaculate condition and professionally cleaned on a regular basis. INSURANCE Our booking providers offer £1.5m of insurance cover to protect the property. EXPERTISE As an experienced residential property professionals we will manage the property and ensure that it is maintained to an excellent standard and in line with all relevant legislation. I have a masters degree in Real Estate Finance from the University of Cambridge and worked for the UK's largest listed residential landlord (Grainger Plc) as an asset manager before setting up my own property company. All our managers are either Members or Fellows of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Thank you for reading my email and I look forward to hearing from you, With kind regards, Lizzie
  3. I have a couple demanding their credit check nonrefundable fee back because I never ran their check. I approved someone else before their check cleared. Are they entitled to their money back? I am in CT.
  4. I am renting a property on an AST and have landlord permission to sub let. I sub let 3 rooms, and live in the fourth. All tenants were made aware of this and signed an AST. I am having issues with one tenant, who after being told to clear his mess up is telling me that he will not pay the full rent as I paid less for it last year (last year i lived in the same room as a joint tenant). He knows this as he knows me personally. I am unsure if the AST i signed with them stands as an AST or they are infact excluded occupier or lodger? Also at the time i read something saying that if i live in with them, i dont have to protect their deposit, and never did, highlighting this in their contract. Now i read about section 21 and not being able to evict if needed. Also possibiliy of penalties? Advice please guys! Even though my tenants signed a contract stating AST is it an AST in eyes of court? Terry
