    Can a tenant add clauses to letting contract ? 3rd Oct 17 at 6:29 AM
    Is this realistically doable?

    I'm currently looking at a domestic let as a tenant and would like to include contract clauses such as no major works to be undertaken while I'm there, no people other than the LL or agent to visit while I'm out, and the house should not be put on the market during the let.

    Would I get laughed out of the office for requesting these?

    But you're probably right that successive governments have succeeded in stacking the cards so much in favour of the LL/LAs that despite paying for everything, the tenant still has little leverage in the marketplace. What a great country.

    Indeed, if all the cards were stacked in favour of LL, I wonder why so many would give it up, putting them in the worse position in Europe suposedly.

    Your problems with previous LL can be solved easily, don't ask for the clauses to be added just change the locks.

    Then they can only enter when you are there after you are given warning.

    Try to only rent from professional LL talking to the letting agents can give you some insight to what they are like.
