Landlord Questions – Coventry PIN Meeting – Tuesday 14th October 2014

Our Commercial Director, Kevin stepped up into the limelight during October to share the Top 3 Landlord Questions & Answers at Coventry’s Property Investors Network (PIN) meeting.

The information given was sourced from the National Landlords Association, which Homemaker Properties is a member of. The questions tackled were as follows:

Q1: My tenant has always been late in paying the rent, now they appear to be letting friends stay. I really don’t want them as my tenant any longer. What can I do?

Q2: My tenant will not allow me to carry out my Landlords Gas Safety Certificate, she keeps saying it is inconvenient, I propose to use my keys to let the gas engineer in next week, is that OK?

Q3: I own an HMO, (House in Multiple Occupancy). I have let individual rooms to students for the last few years. As students they are exempt from Council Tax. One of the student has left University and has a job; the council are now approaching me for Council Tax. Is this right?

Thank you very much to everyone that came along and spoke to us at the October Coventry PIN Meeting, we hope you found our presentation interesting! If you would like copies of the slides or would like to discuss the answers to the questions, give us a call on 02476 100 390 or e-mail
