Mark Thanks. My properties are set around a courtyard.A year ago the guy moved from one property into another larger property in the courtyard. In order to ensure that I was seen to be fairer than fair we deliberately overestimated the remaining oil in his old tank (he had been there 2 years)and underestimated the oil in the new accommodation, at a cost to us of some 50.00. He was delighted! We also loaned him a new unused cooker (cost 399.00 to us) at no charge plus the use of a large outhouse for additional storage (free of charge).

I've been on a steep learning curve with my tenants. One piece of advice I would give is:

Never give a tenant anything that your contract does not contain, no matter what their circumstances. Harsh, however learned the hard way. Good Luck to you.
