  1. What would you define as the right reasons ? Im not here to defend anything which I have done, I lurk mainly out of curiosity and also like to keep an open mind. I was a bear between 2003 and 2005 and listened to what a lot of the bears had to say and was pretty brainwashed by it all, I ended up not buying at the time when it would have financially benefited me immensely by now. I just find a lot of the stuff written now is rehashed from 2005 and I feel a lot of it will mean nothing like it did back then.
  2. I remember reading in 2005 someone wrote almost an identical piece that you just did... ...
  3. As an update I got my money in full 5 mins after posting my last message. Must have put the wind up them! I'm still thinking of filing an n208 but I don't have a copy of my tenancy agreement, and the agent say they have not kept a copy. Thanks for the replys, I guess my thought process is one of morals, guilt and also lack of tenancy agreement so unsure!
  4. I called the agent 10 mins ago and mentioned I was considering filing an N208 as the landlords avoiding me. 2 mins later I got an email from the landlord stating hes paying my deposit back in full and will be in my account tomorrow. ...In my position would you bother to claim against them for non protection, or just leave it ?
  5. Hi Guys, Moved into property 03/03/12 - Moved out 02/05/13. Cleaned through, house is in good condition, lawn left needed mowing and front drive probably needed weeding. Just found out my deposit is not protected, asked landlord via email for details, they avoided the question, said they'd return deposit when back from holiday on friday if checkout report was OK with them. Friday passed, not heard anything, sent a mail yesterday chasing up and heard nothing. I do not have my copy tenancy agreement, I called the letting agent, they said this was let only and they do not keep records on fil
  6. The notice thing isnt really the issue for me. Just the principle of the matter, I dont want to reply back with incorrect information but is it the Landlords responsibility usually to ensure someone can be there for the service of the boiler or should I really be expected to be there? As I say I dont mind someone letting themselves in, I just have issues with leaving work at the moment and I want to fire back something to them on email which is correct and not my own opinion Thanks!
  7. Just a quick query really. I'm not a fussy person, but have a lot going on with work currently. My landlord wants me to be present for a boiler service, I had a little communication by email this morning and feel a little offended by it. I couldn't see anything in my tenancy about this, but does anyone know if I must be present for a boiler service?, I don't mind the landlord being there when I'm out its just I am unable to get the time off work at the moment and I cant seem to get any out of work hours options or weekend options, and I feel they're being a bit rude. They live a few hundred
  8. Zeb, This was the idea in November, I wanted a term of peace and quiet then obviously throw an offer of a 30% discount for the rolling contract after November and ill help him show people around and keep the house spotless. I would like to refuse all entry currently as Its not all about the money, I just thought after the stress of moving 5 months ago I deserved to have peace during the term with the family. If they are desperate to show people around now, maybe I should ask for a large discount for the hassle, otherwise im paying them full whack to be their showroom which seems unfair.
  9. Im not fussed about them selling the house, Im more concerned about having to be a showroom for them while they have their cake and eat it ?
  10. Thanks for the opinions. Our tennancy ends in November (so around 5 months remaining now).
  11. Hi Guys, I moved into a property with my fiancee and daughter in November which we rent. Before we agreed to move in I spoke to the landlord who explained they were moving to canada and couldnt sell the house so decided to put it up for rent. He explained that after the 1 year he would probably put the house back up for sale again to see if it sells. We decided to move in, its a lovely house and great location for the schools etc and we havent been happier anywhere. In April I got a mail from the landlord direct (as we do talk a fair bit) saying they want to sell the house. I replied back e
  12. A roof over your head is more important, but stop whining and pay the 97 quid for her school trip, if your saving for a deposit then 97 quid isnt going to put you out. "have to keep paying these costs" - Do you have to pay £97 for school trips each month or something ?
  13. Hey guys, Hoping for some opinions / help on a renting issue we have, We signed up for a 6 month tennancy, the house was advertised as a mid terrace, 3 bedroom, with garden and garage at the back. After moving in it became quite obvious that the landord was a DIY Bodge Job guy. He's done everything himself, and a lot of things are falling apart. We recently had an issue with the kitchen, its old and the doors are falling off etc, we argued and got the handy man who the agent employs to fix all the hinges so that was one of our issues solved. Our other issue which we brought up at the time w
  14. I disagree with Realistbear's angle on this post. Its just a new store opening yet hes spun it like this. Posts like this just put me off looking at this site sometimes :/
