Q. Too many properties are let to tenants who don’t seem to care. What can I do?


With the boom in buy to let investments over recent years, significant numbers of apartments on many new developments are bought by investors to let out. There is nothing that can be done to change this as all these properties are sold on the open market.

However all property owners have the same responsibilities under the lease, irrespective of whether they have bought their property to let or to live in themselves. This means that they have to ensure that their tenants comply with the terms of the lease.

If you believe that the tenants are causing a problem such as excessive noise or the way in which they are using the facilities, please bring this to the attention of Hillcrest so that we can take it up with the property owner and/or their letting agents.
