  • Landlords in Distress

    Agreed rent free period - can I change?

    Once again landlords think quick get it rented and worry about the problems later. Well lesson learnt. Problems should always be sorted out first as you never know how long or what you are facing. This is a very good lesson to others never rent until you are sure the property is suitable and in full working order. Why should they pay rent you agreed a rent free period until the work was completed that's not their fault. Most people we hope are fair and they refuse to pay you even a reduced rent shows the type you are dealing with. So give notice to them when agreement is ending as you will only get further problems with them down the road. I am afraid you have to rely on their good nature which is not forth coming so just get it sorted as quick as possible and take it as lesson learnt however expensive.

    You agreed they could stay rent free until the problem is fixed. It is not unreasonable for them to expect you to stick to that agreement.

    You could try to get rid of them, butif work is still going one you are unlikely to be able to rent until the problem is fixed.

    Or you could let them stay and hope that as they have been willing to stay whilst the work is going on they like the place enough to become good long term tenants.
