  1. The landlord has sold the property to a young couple and my friend is moving to a new premises next week but has not told the LL the situation yet!
  2. Did any tenant on this forum sign the declaration form regarding the landlord being notified of Hb but the landlord was never contacted by the council? I have a friend who is very worried going to a new property and has not declared Hb to the landlord but is entitled to the rent rebate and has children to keep a roof over their heads. My friend is scared to fill in the declaration section because she does not want the landlord to know! This is a straight transfer of Hb from one address to another and the rental market in their area is pretty grim at the moment and they were going t
  3. Thank you Mrs Blackadder for your response. I will pass your comments on to my friend. Much appreciated
  4. Hi, How true is that estate agents(Letting) will not take any body with housing benefit? My friend has been told to move by the landlord because He has sold but is on part housing benefit. An estate agent told me today they will not consider anybody on HB because the council pays directly to the tenant! Nobody will touch anybody on Hb because of this reason? The local council says there is a 3-4 year waiting list for affordable housing. Plus they told my friend to sit in the property until the court proceedings for eviction!
  5. Hi Guys, Quick update - I took my contract down to the Cab last Friday and the bad news is that the landlord was in his right to give us a section 21 based on the original contract signed back in 2008. The landlord has been flexible with the date along as the property is not been sold. Other problems I face is the rental market is very tough, properties are going at a fast rate and we are struggling to find a place. Thanks Caggers with all your help and I will be back for more help very soon!
  6. Thanks Aequitas for the reply. I just hope I can find a property for my children by the 27th September. Thank you everybody for your help and support! Much Appreciated.
  7. Hi Steve, Would the housing act(1988) over ride the fact regarding the landlord 2 month notice period? It still is a 12 month contract and surely the landlord can only give the 2 month notice period on the 27th October and for us to move out by the 27th December 2011 and not Sep 27th? October 27th is the 6th month in to the 12 month contract? Just had a letter from the estate agent-section 21 - Must vacate by 12pm on 27th September! I am gutted and feel let down why a 12 month contract is not worth the paper it is printed on, I need to find a home for my two young children by that deadlin

  9. Hi Caggers, Need help very very quick. After a long winded outcome we won a 12 month contract which started at the end of May 2011 for our property. Bad news- the landlord wants to sell and want us out by the 27th Sepember 2011! Can he do this? Surely he must only give 2 months notice after 6 months in to the contract! Please can anybody give advice!!!!

  12. Can anybody give me the following answers.. I have just signed a new tenancy agreement(long term) and I feel it is time to go bankrupt. My dmp have told me it would take 200+ years to pay it off! Has anybody had trouble with a letting agency regarding going bankrupt, I am worried they might not welcome the idea. Will it effect the landlords address? Will they want us out of the property? The debts are old and it does not effect any utilities bills I am paying and it will not effect my rent. Just some guidance please.
  13. Can you please explain how to issue a SAR to both? Much Appreciated
