  1. Hello Tumilty


    I had one of those Email a while back from Capital One, they also had the cheek to send me 2 letters 9 days after the Email on the same subject....

    Good luck



  2. From looking at the TA.


    I don't think LL could get away increasing the rent by the amount you stated with you signing a new TA, which you are under No obligation to sign.


    You can appeal the rent increase,  But the LL could serve you with a notice to quit.


    Sorry to sound blunt you could always look for some else to live.


    See what advice stu007 gives you...................




  3. Can you just confirm, does the LL live in the same flat as you or not ?


    Regards, Rent increases - your rent can only be increased once every 12 months (with 3 months notice) and if you think the proposed increase is unfair you can refer it to a rent officer.   https://tinyurl.com/y7zga7cl     .url takes you to shelter Scotland.

    What a relief to get your message, thank you all so much for your responses, so very much appreciated, thank you 


    Don't just sign or agree to anything.


    You need to be careful and not sign anything until you fully read a new TA making sure they're not  a "break clause" in it.


    "A break clause is a term in the tenancy agreement that gives the landlord and/or tenant the right to end a fixed term tenancy before the expiry of the fixed term period"



  7. The problem is nuisance/ spoof calls could be coming from the UK or anywhere around the world ?


    They are tricking caller display into showing number from "Example" 0161 123 4567" Manchester number, but the call can ordinate from the other side of the world. 


    BT and Ofcom are aware of this problem, but they are  not having much success in finding a solution as most these calls come from overseas and are outside the EU.


    Another trick these scammers are using is, they have software set up on a computer that would dial every phone number Possible.


    A computer with dial the code "Example" 0121 200 then dialling every number range from 0001 to 9999, then every time some answer call a operator is alerted, this is how scammers are even getting through to ex directory number.


    Same with mobiles, a computer with dial the code "Example" 07661 then dialling every number range from 500000 to 599999.


    Scammers are also using VOIP to make All these calls for very little cost to them or even free.

    I queried the possibility of moving onto a periodic tenancy to which their response was this is not possible, only to resign my tenancy for 6 or 12 months or vacate the property.



    They are Wrong.


    Typical letting agent don't have a clue !


    The tenancy becomes periodic tenancy at the end of the fixed term  by law regardless of what a LA/LL say,  you do not have to sign another TA.
