  3. I am sure Veronica Chapman would have strong views on this.

  5. I put it down to public/private school confidence. It comes naturally to them.
  6. York yesterday was rammed. Could hardly move in places. Mind you, it is like that most of the time. Not many bags about though.

  8. Anybody help please? Renting house for 3+ years now. Managing agent changed a few months before 12 month AST expired. New agent then sent through new AST for signing that showed NIL deposit. I asked why. They said because previous agent hadn't passed them my deposit. I said I am not signing. They said OK and that they would chase previous agent for deposit - that took weeks. Eventually got an email saying deposit now received and that they would register with their deposit scheme (a different one). So far so good. Anyhow, 30 days nearly up and not heard anything PLUS just a few days ago got another letter this time direct from landlord saying that they have changed agents again - this will be my 3rd. Questions: 1. Can I make a claim against the landlord/ agent number 2 for not protecting my deposit within 30 days? If so, how and what is the likely recompense? 2. Does the change to new agent number 3 mean that the 30 days is somehow 'reset' and it starts again? 3. Any other advice? 4. Any recommended lawyer for 1 above should that be the course of action suggested? 5. We are on a rolling agreement now - forget the name - where we give them 1 month and they give us 2 months notice because no agreement signed. I understand that failure to protect deposit can mean that landlord is unable to serve notice in certain circumstances to get you out - what are they and how would this affect it? Thanks.

  11. If you feel you are being threatened with violence this constitutes common assault. Report him to dibble. Something about it in here if I recall correctly http://www.yourstrawman.com/VeronicaChapman.pdf edit to expand.
  12. Aye, pushing up prices to possibly negate any benefit of avoiding stamp duty. Pure genius.
  13. Just negotiating renewal on my tenancy with a new agent - been in the house 3 years now - agent changed about 4 months ago. New tenancy letter is offering both a 6 or 12 month agreement (ours about to end is for 12 months) with a break clause in of 1 month (for us if we exercise the break at ANY time) or 2 months for the landlord (to exercise at any time). Not seen this before and at first glance seems to undermine the whole idea of a fixed tenancy agreement as it can be ended by either party before the 6 or 12 month is up. Anyone seen this before and/ or got any advice please? I'd quite like to go for the 12 months WITH a break clause (meaning I can leave at ANY time with 1 month's notice) but the downside is the landlord can get me out with 2 month's notice at ANY time as well. Bit unsure what to do really - we can go for the tenancy without the break if we want to.
