Hi
My tenant has just given a months notice.

Anyone know how we stand with viewings, inspections etc in relation to the covid regulations .
Can we do block viewings ?

Another related issue I have with this tenant is that they were due to go last year and then changed their mind - after I had done viewing, had a  new tenant waiting having paid deposit and advance rent - she wasn't very happy  :-[ Still I guess I have to proceed assuming they will move out this time!?

Thanks
Paul

Poor advice to yourself... best to wait until it's empty, especially as the Tenant has a track record.

How did you escape any for compensation from the previous Tenant you had promised the property to, but couldn't deliver on? No AST was signed, I guess?

You can do viewings... block viewings are for losers and bilkers.

 :) thanks - your probably right but I'd miss the rent if I can't get a tenant to move in soon after they leave.
I guess I was lucky not to be sued by the new prospective tenant as the AST was signed though my argument would have been circumstances outside my control.
 BTW what are Bilkers caus if I'm one I can do block viewings  :)

That argument wouldn't fly... you'd be on the hook for providing accommodation.

Thanks - I'll be careful of that in future
