  1. Youre welcome. Periodic tenancy, so yes, you can receive notice at any time. Regarding receiving notice, it needs to line up with the dates of your rental period. So if you are lucky you could get closer to three months notice. Just bear in mind they might wait until the end of your rental month even if an offer is accepted in the middle of the period, because there is no benefit to telling you straight away. If the sale fell through early for some reason, and you are already looking for a new place, they would probably still lose you and have the house empty. Regarding the phot
  2. Asking EA to serve notice seems silly. Why start the clock on your own eviction when you havent found a place? And to agree to pepper corn rent, LL might as well give notice which puts OP on LLs time frame. As to asking for a grand, not only are they going to refuse since the whole idea for LL is to keep the money coming in during this period, they are going to take offence at these sorts of numbers and the whole thing is going to escalate into something nasty. And it is not going to change anything. Tenant has to leave, and taking this sort of attitude is just going to make it more
  3. Well, OP could try I guess. I would be amazed if they get 50%. I would be surprised if they get anything significant. Tenants overestimate their power in this situation. It is not considered unreasonable to have a few viewings, especially if they are grouped to once or twice a week. At the end of the day the only real power the tenant has here is to leave on their terms rather than going through this stuff and then getting booted on the LLs terms. They should just get on with finding a new place and with a bit of luck a rent reduction will not be relevant. All the battling is just tinkering ar
  4. OP, Dont do as advised here. You are not going to get a rent reduction, you are just going to embarrass yourself. And if you start refusing viewings you are just going to cause needless conflict. And you will still have to leave. This is all just tinkering around the edges. Just get on with it and find a new property.
  5. I dont think this really helps much. The OP is probably outside the fixed term period. Even if they are not, how long is likely left on it? If it is a couple of months, the LL can still serve notice at any time. If it is say four months, the OP is still going to have to leave in four months. They might as well start looking for a new property on their terms.
  6. OP, There is nothing at all you can do about this. You are going to be leaving this property. In this particular situation you are somewhat fortunate though as you have been given greater than the usual two months notice, as they need to admit to you what they are doing to explain away the viewings. Please be aware though that they DO want to give you notice. They DO want you to leave, but they want you to leave when THEY want you to leave. They are telling you they dont want you to leave because they want to keep rent coming in as long as possible up to the sale date. If you le
  7. Seems like the golden era to me, in hindsight. Absolutely. But that sort of thing always hits the UK too a little further down the line. The hints are already there. Thats what Im worried about.
  8. The real danger is that government and these big multinationals are basically the same thing now. Amazon and Washington Post is in bed with intelligence services. So is Google. Governments were taking this information without even asking. And it is not even about where things are now, but where they are headed. Frog in boiling water stuff.
  9. I wonder if things would be better if people werent herded into the cities to live in shoe boxes with bits of paper that say "Degree" on them. What if people developed skills that were useful to improve and develop and raise the standard of living in their home towns and villages and countries, rather than being brain washed into going to a city to live in a shoe box to become social media marketers to get people to buy £1000 phones every year or to get people to buy the latest consumer fad. I wonder if society would be better off if resources werent wasted on people going to university t

Because if there are more zeros on the end of a currency, that makes people have a better standard of living. But amazing to read that some of these people that came from the country to live in slave master provided, I mean employer provided, dorms in the cities are sometimes no longer able to send money back home to their peasant families, the peasants
  11. The media are in on it! The media are very against Brexit except perhaps the Mail, Express, Sun who have their own agenda. The rest are all establishment neo-liberal mouth pieces. See this link where I quote a Sky News article from today. I lost count of how many times Brexit was mentioned but bolded all of them. The whole page is bolded! https://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/233866-rics-house-sales-outlook-weakest-on-record/&do=findComment&comment=1103444702 I have used Sky News for many many years and am finding it hard to break the habit, bu
  12. You are right, it is disgusting. I know an agent very well and he is shady as anything. I know a of a couple of broken laws by him during the course of his recent business. I also know some landlords and many are some of the most self-centred, money grubbing, horrible people I have met. No exaggeration. In any sort of reasonable free market these people would go out of business. I have to say though I also know some landlords who are decent people and do try to be good landlords (and manage to be so). But you are right, agents and landlords really need to look in the mirror.
  13. Yeah I dont see why they cant all go down together. After all, all those countries have basically the same policies as each other so will all have the same property inflating flaws. Regarding Germany though, isnt the market somewhat different there? Isnt it highly regulated and rent controlled and the vast majority of people rent or something? I could see that one being different.
  14. Sky News - "Brexit uncertainty causes worst outlook for 20 years due to Brexit and the uncertainty that Brexit uncertainty causes. Brexit is bad, readers. Brexit will destroy us all." https://news.sky.com/story/brexit-uncertainty-weighs-heavily-on-housing-market-11609341
  15. Not judging by the live streams ive been watching today. And reports by other French that said it was huge today.
