Tenant problems?

If the the subject title of this blog post perked your interest and miraculously landed in sight at the ‘right time’- then shit has most likely hit the fan! If that’s the case, I give you my sincerest and deepest condolences, and I want to assure you that I am totally with you, and my only objective right now is to help you, even if only a smidgen.

I’ve been there, I’ve danced the whole eviction thing, and I know how dogshit the situation can be! Yes, dealing with problematic tenants is ‘part of the job’, but that sure as hell doesn’t make it any less of a head-fuck. If anything, it makes it worse. No idea why, but it just does! Either way, it’s always a waste of time and more often than not, a tragic waste of money!

I think one of the most nauseating factors about the situation, especially for novice landlords, is the ‘not-knowing’ – that’s usually the root cause of many sleepless nights. The not-knowing what to do, not-knowing your rights, and not-knowing how long this BS will go on for.

If it’s of any conciliation (when anyone says that, it usually never is, but I’m going to say it anyways), you will NEVER be in the boat alone. I don’t know why, but we mortals seem to feel at ease when we’re getting screwed-over in mass numbers, so rest assured that there are landlords up and down the country dealing with asshole tenants every damn day. Most of the comments left on this blog are from landlords experiencing tenant-difficulties.

Essentially, what I have is access to a billion teary-eyed landlords, all looking for advice on how to deal with bad tenants and evictions. So, with that in mind, I started to think about how I could positively leverage the sack full of desperate and sobbing landlords I have hanging over my burly shoulders!

Who wants what I have? The answer was obvious…

Hello ‘Free Landlord Legal Advice’…

Last month I reached out to LandlordforLegal.co.uk (LforL), and I explained the situation, and enquired if they could take *special* care of my most prized possessions (yup, that’s YOU).

Please note, there are a couple of other well-known UK based tenant eviction companies out there, but I’ve always heard amazing feedback about LforL’s service, and that’s why I decided to contact them first.

The Director of LforL got back to me sharply, and we managed to strike up a deal! Long story short: Property Investment Project’s “friends and followers” have been given exclusive access to free legal advice, and special discounted rates for any of their eviction services (if required).

WHY IS IT FREE? Sounds like there’s a catch!

Yup, I hear ya’. I’d be suspicious, too… so let me clarify!

LforL will give you free advice, no obligations! You can take the advice and run for the mountains. However, if you proceed to use any of their tenant eviction services, which you may or may not wish to use, including serving possession/eviction notices, taking your tenant to court, and/or instructing the bailiffs- that’s where they’ll make their cheese (but you’ll also get special discounted rates there)!

Specialist Landlord Legal Services Vs Solicitors!

I always recommend using a ‘Landlord Legal Specialist’ service (just like LforL) over a general high-street solicitor. Specialist companies are often much cheaper than Solicitors, and they specialise in dealing with problem tenants (i.e. so they’re typically much more efficient at it), whereas most solicitors practice multiple areas of law, and therefore don’t have specialist experience or knowledge.

Of course, you can find solicitors that specialise in landlord law, but as you expect them to be, they’re typically a buttload more expensive, and they won’t necessarily do anything different than a specialist eviction company.

But it’s your call, I just thought I’d give you my two pence!

Do I need a Legal Services to get rid of my tenants?

Absolutely not.

As said, you can get the free legal advice from LforL and then take matters into your own grubby hands! So, that means you can download and serve possession notices yourself (and yes, that’s completely legal). If your tenant ignores your [correctly served] notice you can also apply for a hearing at a County Court, all by your brave self. For more details, here’s a guide on how you can start the tenant eviction process all by your lonesome.

However, if you feel out of your depth and/or lack experience, my advice is to seek professional help from a service that actually specialises in the area (whether that be LforL or anyone else). Taking the professional route may sound expensive, but it can actually work out to be the cheaper option because they know what they’re doing and they know the quickest and most-effective routes to take. For example, many landlords try to tackle the eviction process themselves but end up shooting themselves in the foot because they take the wrong turn somewhere along the journey, consequently delaying the entire process, which ultimately may result in further losses.

On that note… If you don’t know what, where or how… call LegalforLandlords.co.uk for Free Legal Advice on 0333 240 8255 and use the exclusive discount code if you decide to use any of their extra services: PIPLANDLORD

If you do end up hitting up LforL for free advice, or use any of their other services, please leave a comment below and let me know how you found the experience!!

I only wish you all the best! Good luck xoxo

Received your email yesterday and it was literally a case of perfect timing. I've been having tenant problems and I've been at my wit's end. I spoke to citizen's advice and they were useless.

Spoke to legal for landlord yesterday and they were brilliant, I feel so much mroe confident now.

Thank you so much!! keep up the good work!!

I spoke to Legal for Landlords last week and I feel much better about getting the eviction process started. It's still scary as I'm an accidental Landlord and have inherited a right nasty family, so getting the right advise and reassurance is a big thing for me.

It would be nice to hear other's experience of their service too.

you really make me smile! going through a shitty time with my tenant - why do we actually call them tenants when they don't pay their rent? we should call them squatters,because that's what they are!! but you are funny, and lighten up my mood in my current situation, so thanks for that, and also for the help and advise you give to landlords going through a bad time with their tenants. well done!

Hopefully it will be a quick turnaround for you.

It won't be.
It will be long, drawn out and painful.
But hopefully you will learn and be very careful in choosing tenants in future and price your rents accordingly.
I wish you the best of luck!

Unfortunately, LforL won't deal with anything relating to Lodgers - they only give advice on AST contracts (which as we know doesn't apply in a lodger situation). So not as helpful as I would have liked & was desperate for.

Thanks for the priceless information, the downloads, the sense of support and for the laughs! I’m currently dealing with my first eviction and not received rent for nearly 5 months. NIGHTMARE! But you’ve helped me in navigating the process.

yes you will come across good and bad in everything, but some landlords are an utter disgrace and think just because they own a property they have the right to do as they please without a seconds thought of consequences to the tenant.5 weeks ago my brother was moving into a new flat as he was unhappy were he was, after giving notice the landlord asked if he new anybody who may move in an take the flat over. My best friend mentioned he was lonely at his current flat and would like to move into my brothers old flat to be closer to friends and family, the landlord was chuffed he had a tenant to take straight over saving him the hassle and expense of finding one for himself and also somebody recommended. My friend moved straight in and signed a tenancy within days even before giving notice at his old flat, (this is what the landlord asked of him). On meeting him and signing there was no issue they got on fine and the landlord was more than happy to sign a 6 month assured tenancy in the full knowledge the rent was being payed by housing benefits as my friend broke his back on a building sight when at work so he is no scum bag parasite as iv seen tenants being referred to with words like this on a few comments on this web page.He then gave up his old flat happy he was secure in a new place more positive than ide seen him for a few months as he has some mental health issues.Unknowing to any of us the tenant in the above flat who has worked for the landlord on and off for 25 years and who acts as his live in handy man had promised somebody he knows the flat , even without speaking to the landlord. Now apparently within days of my friend signing for the flat the handy man started moaning about this and lying about noise underneath when my pal wasn't even there. Now i think you would all agree a responsible landlord would say " First of all you should not of promised a flat thats not your decision to make to anybody, and im sorry but iv let the flat to my ex tenants brothers friend who has the right to live there hassle free ". Well what has happened instead is an example of how some landlords think they are above the law and act in a manor that has me absolutely furious and at a point of having to show severe restraint not to act on my rage.

MY friend moved in on the 9th of april 2018 with no deposit or rent in advance asked for, the landlord told him to claim from the 1st of the month which he had no reason to contest, my brother gave his notice on 25th of march and payed a months rent which covered the rent till 26th of april. So firstly attempted fraud knowing he has already been payed for 3 weeks of the period. less than 5 days after my pal signing the tenancy he started getting calls and txts daily demanding rent, within another week he was texting saying im serving you notice i want to to vacate by the end of the day as there has been a mistake and i have another tenant to move in.The stress and worry this has caused my friend is unforgivable and there was not even any rent due at this point, apparently this is all because of the upstairs tenant giving landlord a hard time. Now this has continued every day since up until last Monday, i told my pal try not to worry as you have rights from the protection from harassment act 1997, protection from eviction act 1977 and housing act 2004 among others. my freind struggles talking on the phone and getting his words out due to anxiety were as I am more than able to tell it how it is and to no my facts before i speak, i was with my friend on monday when the landlord phoned him threatening to change the locks and evict him and to vacate today, this was enough for me to take the phone to speak and to enlighten the landlord on what is a civil and criminal offence and what rights mt pal has and also the fact hes attempting fraud, he has entered the flat on numerous occasions without any permission, and also the fact he has absolutely no smoke alarms, or fire doors in a first floor flat that has no fire escape, there is no currant gas safety certificate and so on. I also reminded him he cant even apply for a section 21 unless no rent has been payed for 2 months even then its not enforceable till the tenancy expires when he then has to apply for eviction notice etc, and you have no right legally to apply anyway when there is no up to date or gas safety cert or energy efficient cert produced to the tenant on signing of the tenancy and if he continues with these idiotic threats i will report him so do with this information as you wish.About 3 hours later i went with my pal to his flat to find he had changed the main front door lock and the locks on the flat door without a second thought of it causing my friend to sleep rough in the rain with no access to food and clean clothes, luckily he has friends and hes bin at mine since, he has we think instructed his tenant and associate of 25 years to enter his flat and change the locks. Now excuse my for referring to this bellend as a skumbag coward who is tucked up in his nice warm bed in his big house by his top Mercedes car not giving a thought of consequences for my pal.Resisting the real temptation to go to his posh pad and remove his jaw off his chin is not easy i have to admit but im far from stupid and theirs more than 1 way to skin a RAT. I am already in the process of doing a search on his properties to find mortgage free ones to use to levi against for legal representation while reporting him to national fraud agency and the local council for investigation and summons to court. he has also agreed to let my friend go there tomorrow to remove his stuff as we have indicated defeat and he wins.ASIF, if he thinks that hes a thick skumbag coward bellend as the minute he opens door to allow access he will be told he is the only thing being removed and the police already on the way in case of any more threats and you will give a key to access and leave the building and leave me to live here in a peaceful manor i am lawfully allowed to and not to return harassing me or trying to access my flat without prior written request.

I my self have had-some fantastic landlords and dont dispute for one minute there out there but situations like this do happen and as far as im concerned he should be made to spend a few months slumming it in a homeless hostel with no access to money accept for the equivalent income of somebody on benefits, lets see how he would cope, and i will fight this until he receives a large fine or custodial before helping my friend claim compensation for stress and trauma caused. if i was my pal i would sit in the flat for the full duration of the tenancy and every month when the rent is there tell him to go and boil his head and give the rent to some homeless , vulnerable adults who deserve equality...would love to hear any opinions

Our landlord wants to serve us notice after we complained her about agent - we don’t have option to explain all as he doesn’t want to talk to us directly. The truth is only what agent tells him

The agent created story how they look after his property while they never inspect the any fixed things. We complained on their contractors so they came here and called us names ( likely we had a witness who created the witness statement for us ) We had to complained to heath and Safty to serve notice on the agent as they wanted to get rid of us but keeping the scaffolding in our garden for several months with long metal ladder attached unsecured
Our child felt down from the ladder and agent’s advice was to “ take the wooden ladder by ourselves “

We want to stay here but we would like the justice to happen

They informed us on last day of the month at 5 pm if we don’t sign totally new agreement they serves us notice 21 at the end of the next month
They increased our rent too ( more what neighbours paying )

What are our options?
We would like to stay but our fixed term finished last year and we are periodic tenancy and we don’t want to sign a new agreement which takes away our legal rights

They put now after 3 years new administration charge for new agreement ( we never were informed such a charge exists )

The new contract has to be sign on 1 st of the month after receiving it on 31 st at 5 pm ( they advised us to seek legal advice - I guess at night on 31 st ....

The agent told the landlord they we agreed to X increase

We haven’t and there is our word against agent again - my friend recorded conversation with agent saying landlord wants new increase ... now the landlord responded to us saying we have to pay as we were ok with it ....

They changed in the contract repair obligations from “tennant has no right to do any repairs “ to: landlord will not carry any rapairs which are not law obligatory.

What can we do ?
Could you help please ?

Shall we show the landlord the proof our agent lies again and again ? ( we can email It to her ) but we have no agent permission as he didn’t know we recorded the conversation but It is very clear who lies
