Empty Properties

Recommended Posts

House next to our current rental has been on the market for a year now, empty for most of that time. 5 bed detached.

I have posted elsewhere about our move at the end of next week. We are also in a 5 bed detached currently.

Our current LL lives in the house the other side of our current one. They divided the house into two spacious flats several years ago. LL lives in one of these flats, the other was eventually let after being empty for the best part of a year. Tenants of the other flat moved out yesterday.

At this rate the road is going to be empty before too long!

No real point to this story, but I wouldn't like to be in our present LL's shoes.

Make sure your deposit is in the tenant protection scheme thing...

Or make an offer to buy your house at from the LL!

It isn't in the scheme!

Not worried about this, as there is always the 3 x deposit thingy to hit them with, if they don't refund in full.

Present property has been owned by LL for many years, so plenty of equity there. Am not expecting them to do a runner with my deposit!

May perhaps have considered buying this place, but I think we have now outgrown it. One of the much overlooked advantages of renting is the ability to upsticks and move, as and when personal circumstances dictate.

Given what we are moving to, I am not in the least bit bothered about buying for some time.

Thnaks for the reply.

Totally agree. Am in the similar situation.
