    Section 8 and part rent payment

    Tenant is in arrears section 8 was served by solicitor, tenant has paid some rent which means its not 8 weeks in arrears landlord wants to go to court against advise am i correct in saying that if when the court date arrives if he is less that 8 weeks in arrears it will be void? He seems to be paying a bit off each week to keep himself under that 8 week mark.

    What grounds? If 10 in addition to 8 it would still be valid, albeit discretionary
    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...

      How long until his fixed term contract expires? Serve S21, as with S8 there are more favourable towards the tenant, especially if the tenant is demonstrating that he is paying (even if it isn't the full amount). This could be easily challenged.

        The tenant isn’t likely to be able to keep himself under the 8 week mark for long. At some point he’d have to pay the full rent at the correct level.

          I'm looking for recommendations from other agents for property inspections apps, to help speed up an automate the process. Currently we take photos and produce a pdf report, which has been this way for several years but is quite time consuming, so am hoping an app can help. We use Acquaint for our systems,...

          In my last business my inventory clerk used Peach Software.

          She thought it was pretty decent but the few times I tried to use it I didn’t find it particularly user friendly. I think that’s mainly because it’s only available on Android software and I’m used to Apple products.

        • Terminate agent contract owing to rent arrears

          The letting agent has been always been late in settling rents inspite of several calls a day. We are owed 3 months rent. There is no sign of the arrears being settled. The termination notice demands that i serve 2 months notice and if I keep the tenant i will have to pay 2500. I will lose 5 months rent....

          Unfortunately I think you will find they disappear before you get a chance to take them to court.

          Contact the tenant directly and explain everything. Take over management yourself and hope the tenant takes pity on you (IE. doesn’t start looking into whether the deposit was registered...

          Hello,
          We recently rented out our own house. The agents talked us into a three year fixed term with no break clause. We paid in excess of £6k to the agents . After 5 months the tenant has contacted me to say that they are leaving due to their marriage breaking down.

          The tenant is...

          The trouble is proving something they agreed to verbally.

          By all means file a complaint, but you’ll need to exhaust the company’s internal complaints procedure before any redress scheme will consider looking at it.

          Based on the limited information we have available, I’d...
