Who should get the rent payment on long term tenancy's Tenant or Landlord.
As a tenant I say tenant should, but I don't get it. My argument is that I have the inconvenience and cost of working round them, landlord has the benifit (not that it comes to much).
In my previous employment, if we took on ground we took wayleaves but paid drainage which generally balanced out.
Suspect there is no set law, depends on the contract. I expect where open to interpretation the landlord would get it!
As far I can remember, there are two components to it. The rent for the land part goes to the landlord, and the compensation for the inconvenience goes to the tenant. An owner occupier should obviously get both parts.
Edit: Here I am referring to electricity poles, I imagine it's the same with telephone poles.
The tenant should, but the landlord probably does.
Well that's how it was for me. I'm retired now, but for the 50 years of my tenancy, I received a nice little cheque each year for the electricity poles. I only had 1 telephone pole, for which I received a cheque each year for £3.
I think that it cost 70p to pay it in. They wouldn't pay by BACS or give me a lump sum to buy it out.
