    Bit of a follow up. LL moaning because we haven't signed the new inventory (she has replaced the carpet in one of the rooms due to the previous tenants not reporting a moth infestation and the carpet getting damaged) We aren't renewing the AST and will be leaving next month so will sign one when we check out. So I don't see the point?

    Would I be wrong not to sign it? I don't see the point. Can she demand it?

      She can demand it, but there is nothing (realistic) that anyone can do to make you.

      On the other hand, it's not really an issue to sign it is it?
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        No issue in signing it. It is just that I am abroad so can't sign it yet and she had a dramatic reaction to this.

        Offered to sign and send it when I return home.

        Her reaction just surprised me so was worried had missed something of legal importance.

          What does she expect you to do, buy a very long pen?

            Hi, i hope this is the right place to post this, as i am a tenant, not a landlord.

            This is in England. 4 months ago i rented a room from a lady, we signed a contract, paid rent and deposit and everything was fine. About a couple of weeks in i opened a letter addressed to the tenants and...

            The superior landlord need to end the intermediate tenancy with a notice to quit, at least a period of the intermediate tenancy etc., which they probably haven't given. The s21 isn't valid, since intermediate tenancy isn't an AST.

            Make the court aware of your existence, force a hearing,...

            Hi
            I have friends who have lived in Spain for 15 years but have no resident status over there (I have recently discovered). Their mail comes to my house - a historical arrangement from when their house was uninhabitable, which has just continued. They use my house as a base in England but are...

            You need to take legal advice on the council tax. They are clearly not resident in the UK for most purposes (NHS, electoral roll, etc.), but they could well be considered legally as residing at the property for council tax purposes.



            They're clearly not settled in the UK. Using...

            Hi
            I rent a house to a group to four friends on a joint AST, where all are named. There seems to have been a falling out within the group, which I was unaware of, and at a house meeting, 2 of the tenants told the other 2 that they had to leave. They were told that this was at my instigation which...

            You can't prevent people from falling out. Just make sure to do a full check-out, return of deposit, new deposit, new check-in.

            There is no defence to section 21, other than a very short delay for extreme hardship.

            If you do succeed in showing you are an interested party, you will probably derail the accelerated possession, by forcing a hearing, and therefore slow the whole process down. It looks like accelerated...

            Also, i don't know if it makes a difference in terms of the type of notice served, but the court papers are for accelerated possession. Is that still ok if it doesn't need to be a section 21? I'm just trying to find a way to buy myself until september....

            So, basically i have no defence? In which case, is there any point in making myself an interested party? Thanks

            You should refuse permission to register to vote at your address, and should consider checking the register in the public library (this would seem a legitimate use of the unedited version). Their registering to vote in the UK would require them to make a false declaration, that they are usually resident...
