Almost all tenants have had issues with landlords / agencies at some point. The situation in the UK has been unfair on tenants for a long time.
Rights for Tenants hopes to alleviate some of these issues.
Rights for Tenants provides:
- Tenancy legal acts summarised in layman terms
- Access to tenant and expert opinions on the tenants forum
- A tenants advice area to help other tenants avoid common mistakes.
Thoroughly read your Tenancy Agreement, learn how to get your entitled deposit back. Spend time familiarising your self with tenancy Laws, such as the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, Protection From Eviction Act 1977, Housing Act 1988. Dont give in to threats or bribes, dont let the landlord be negligent. The landlord is not allowed to just turn up uninvited. The landlord can not just shut down utilities without notice or prevent guest from visiting. As a tenant, the law can be on your side, take legal action when necessary. Speak up and use your rights as a tenant, read other tenants ideas with the Tenants Article section and discuss tenancy issues on the forum.
