  • Emailing or texting a possession notice.

    Would a possession notice sent via email or text be legal in court?

    No.

    Must be written, sent to the address, even nailed to the front door.

    Do you mean an S21 to get back property.

    People change email address, phone numbers. lose their phone.
    They dont lose the house address.

      Commercial so presumably not s21.

      What does the tenancy say, if anything, about how notices may be served?

      Are you asking as tenant, landlord....?
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        I am assuming this is in relation to your tenant who has vacated a room on first floor level. It all really depends on whether the tenant is actually a tenant or a licensee. In an event have a look at what your agreement says, without wording that specifically allows service of notice via email, then it is a defective notice. Your actions may have indicated an acceptance, however.

        • Garage let on verbal agreement, three months rent unpaid
          Jerseytina
          Hi - I am new to this site, we have let out our garage without any agreement in place, only verbal. The tenant has not paid for 3 months and is refusing to communicate although he is picking up messages. Are we legally entitled to sell the contacts of the garage which includes a car!

          Thank...

          Bet you don't need to go any further than sending the letter (2 post offices, cert of posting from each just to be belt and braces in case you do have to do so). The person will surface red faced and angry as soon as he gets the letter. Just ensure he can't get the stuff in the garage until you have...

          Send a torts interference with goods notice to the person - find the legal wording and explain that if goods not moved by a certain date you will sell them and use the proceeds to pay unpaid rent for the garage etc. Anything left over will be returned to the tenant after all costs. Usually this makes...

          We rent out light industrial units and empty, enclosed yards to small businesses. Recently we took on a tenant who runs a skip-hire business. They have 2 skip lorries and a bunch of skips. Filled skips are brought back to site and the rubbish sorted, and taken to the scrap yard.

          Ah ok sorry to hear that. I thought they might have some kind of machinery you could serve a tort notice on. All I can suggest is writing to them to give them a certain length of time to clear the skips (you would have to allow entry just for this) and telling them that if it is not done you will do...

          There's no building, it's a yard. Currently there are around 30 skips full of stinking rubbish and quite a bit strewn around the yard....

          As no one has answered.

          No you cannot sell someone elses property.
          When you say it's your garage, where is it, as you are in Commercial Property questions

          Is it your house garage ?, Is it your leasehold flat garage ( which you cant let out )
          Or is it your business
