Suppose to be the Ultimate Tenant Scrunity Tool.  WHAT IF TENANT NOT ALLOWED TO GET INVOLVED

The principal role in scrutinising landlord services and intervening where consumer standards are not met will fall to others – tenants’ panels, MPs and elected councillors.

Aside from the regulator’s backstop role in respect of consumer regulation, some of the consumer standards are changing. There will be more focus on local mechanisms to resolve complaints and disputes. The scope for new tenancy agreements needs to be reflected. There is a need for new requirements in respect of tenant mobility and the increased scope for tenant involvement in the repair and maintenance of their homes.

The regulator’s principal role will be the economic regulation of private registered providers. In large part there is continuity from the existing economic standards. The regulator will continue its commitment to the co-regulatory approach, emphasising that boards are responsible and accountable for meeting their organisation’s objectives and the regulator’s standards. And the regulator will retain its focus on the proper governance and financial viability of providers.

The regulator will also have an expanded role on value for money in private registered providers. In future, the regulator expects boards to have a clear view of their risk appetite and associated risk management strategies, an informed view of their cost base and the factors affecting it, a strategy for making best use of their assets, and a plan for improving VFM that has been developed in a transparent way with input from stakeholders. In due course the regulator’s findings on this will be reflected in regulatory judgements.

    It's an interesting situation because The Right to Exchange provisions of The Housing Act 1985 apply only to Secure Tenants not Asuured. I would say therefore that you might be on dodgy ground claiming deemed consnt because the landlord has not responded within 42 days although ironically your neighbour might make that argument.

    Now you are presenting a different case Andrew.

    Just one is acceptable - but which one?

    From my understanding,  if an NSP is issued for tenancy breaches, then the notice period is 14 days.

    It just doesn't work, the only way you will get this to marry up is to change the charge element upon agreeing payments by DD to monthly payments.

    Or perhaps of course, its been determined the other MEx partner would overcrowd a 2 bed or even there are reasons why the other partner is not being allowed to move that you cannot be told.

    You'll find there are some experts and they are clearly marked.  You'll also find others that work within the housing field.  Just because someone works within housing doesn't mean the advice they provide is correct.  I myself work within housing and have done for some time.  With regards my comments on RTB, my brother succeeded to my mother's tenancy.  It was a 4 bed property and he lived in it with my other brother. 2 bed need.  I went to the succession appointment with him and was very surprised how unsympathetic the housing officer was.  She was adamant my ...

  • From Rose007, 26/06/2014 10:46 pm in Request for Joint Tenancy

    I agree with above but note you have mentioned right to buy.  I am not an expert on right to buy however I am aware that currently we have a tenant taking legal acton as his tenancy was assigned to him by his partner prior to her death some years ago.  He has since put an application in to buy and it is questionable as to his length of tenancy.  It is being said that as far as the RTB is concerned he only qualifies for the time the assignment occured.  On the other hand, if your father goes ...
