  1. Who cares if it's likely to happen, if all is well I'm still on a temperate isle rather than stuck in hell hole dubai and if it does go all mad max I'd reckon my chances are poor to middling here and naff all there. Whats not to like
  2. Who needs it to stop overnight, as production cannot meet demand prices rise, I'd rather be stuck on a temperate island with the ability to grow my own than in a desert hell hole, particularly when the public desire to restrict what little natural resources are available to those already here kicks in and HMG obliges by saying sorry expats but you can't come back.
  3. Yeh but when that sh!t hits I'd rather have a bolthole in blighty than the sh!t end of the Arabian peninsula, like someone else said there's a reason the population was naff all until the oil.
  4. We're about £2.5k/y for 2 of us all in, easy when a single chicken and some veg does a roast, pie and soup-thats three mains for 2 and sandwiches for lunch for 2 for 2 days. Cook like your granny did and food goes much farther. Cook the chicken and turf it and eating is expensive. If I didn't like meat so much we'd go veggie-very cheap eating that.
  5. My sister keeps trying to tell me I should move out there. She's been there for 15 years and can't see how ******ed it is when the wells run dry. I keep telling her not a ice cube in hells chance.
  6. Which is why I left my original post with this'll start and argument, I think one thing and some think another and until a LL or T pursues it there won't be a definitive answer either way. I'm happy to leave it there.
  7. The definition of reasonable is?, this goes on and on, IMHO a tenant can always claim it is unreasonable-they are having folk round for an orgy at that time. This I never said, the tenant can carry out repairs for which the LL has been notified and failed to act upon. In this instance the tenant has stated that the relationship has irretrievably broken down, I'd hazard in that case the T intends to leave at the end of the term, the LL would have no case of I couldn't gain access to inspect as the T wouldn't let me, he's been made aware of issues and failed to act. The T rightly now wants nothing to do with the LL/LA presumably until the duration of the term upon which they will leave. The LL would have no recourse for damage they failed to take action to remedy in good time-in doing so they have admitted a lack of interest.
  8. They generally have a contract with the LL which will stipulate the inspections to protect the LL interests. They haven't done anything about the issues you've flagged because the LL is a tight ******* and won't pay for them. You can choose if it is reasonable to have the work carried out and set off the cost against rent but be sure the work is necessary or you could end up stuck for the cost. They aren't legally entitled to do anything in your home you do not permit, indeed they aren't legally entitled to enter your home without your permission (that'll cause and argument here).
  9. Doesn't matter if the tenant 'plays the game' or not, the law has been tightened up and is clear 'no protection, guilty and 1 to 3x deposit as compensation. It's meant as a punishment IMHO to deter LL 'playing the game'
  10. Interesting sign off you use, do you feel animosity towards yourself?
  11. The lack of buyers after its use'll kinda make it worthless, but in the run up all that force showing'll make it a desirable area. Although tongue in cheek, in case you missed that.
  12. You can pursue it after I think, but the rent will eventually have to be paid, the landlord and tenant act allows for it not to be paid until an address has been received in writing but it then needs paying. Do you have an address in England or Wales for the LL. If you do then you can start proceedings now, if you do not then you'll need advice from someone else as notices can't? be served on an address abroad. Of course not paying the rent would be an encouragement for the LL to supply the address in England and Wales which you could then use for the deposit case.
