    N5B Form Queries

    Evening to you all,

    My estate agent served section 21 notice correctly including EPC, How to Rent and etc Unfortunately the tenant is not vacating the flat hence I am applying for the possession of a property by filling N5B form. The property is located in England. https://formfinder.hmctsformfinder.j...ngland-eng.pdf

    Will need help on filling out Question 7 (b) on N5B Form.

    7. The following section must be completed in all cases.
    (a) Was a money deposit received in relation to the tenancy or in relation to a tenancy directly or indirectly replaced? Answered Yes

    If Yes, complete the following:
    (b) on what date did the fixed term come to an end? DD MM YYYY

    What date this question (b) represents?
    For example,
    First tenancy agreement fixed term end date: 20-Jan-2015
    First tenancy agreement end date: 20-Sep-2015
    Current tenancy agreement end date: 20-Sep-2018 (No fixed term on this agreement)
    Ending on or after on Tenancy Deposit Protection Certificate: 20-Sep-2015
    Or any other date.

    I would appreciate your valuable input to this question. Thanks for your help

    If Yes, complete the following:
    (b) on what date did the fixed term come to an end? DD MM YYYY
    I would be inclined to say the date of the end of the first fixed term.

    I am confused by question 10c

    (c) if there is no relevant gas appliance in any room occupied by the tenant has the landlord displayed in a prominent position in the premises a copy of the gas safety record with a statement endorsed on it that the tenant is entitled to have their own copy of the gas safety record on request to the landlord at an address specified in the statement?

    If there is no relevant gas appliance how can there be a copy of the gas safety record? Perhaps someone more knowledgeable enlighten?
    Any advice I give is my opinion and experience, I am as you also learning.


      Well spotted SunnyP. I wonder if this refers to an HMO or similar situation where a boiler may be in a room not occupied by the particular tenant but whereby he/she benefits from a radiator on that gas fuelled system.

      Freedom at the point of zero............


        I suspect you are right, if there is no gas to the property then 10 a,b,and c don't apply. Was my comment about the fixed term date to the OP above accurate?

        • Grade 2 listed - requirement for an EPC
          I have a potential client who wants me to rent his Grade 2 listed barn conversion. It's a lovely property and he currently has it on the market for sale with another agent.

          They currently have an EPC for it (even though I don't think they needed one) and it's score is F.

          I wonder how many perfectly good buildings (and cars, and fridges, and light fittings) have been scrapped or destroyed as a result of these environmental evangelists. I suspect they are responsible for a great deal of environmental destruction (both planetary destruction and destruction of our infrastructure)....

        • HMO trouble!
          Hi everyone,

          I've been renting a property out to a family and one of their friends for the last 2 years. The council have just told me that I should have applied for an HMO licence for the property as it now fits under new HMO rules. The problem is, that I remortgaged the property as a...

          a) Inform the mortgage company "I have been inadvertently fallen within a potential category of HMO through no wish of my own. My understanding is that it remains a single-let tenancy as there is only one AST and one single joint tenant. I am taking steps to evict the tenants as soon as possible....

          Single-let doesn't necessarily mean a single family, and HMO doesn't necessarily mean multiple tenancies. It's perfectly possible to be both single-let and HMO.

          What's the definition of single-let in your mortgage? If it just mean a single tenancy, is that what you have? If not, then you...

          Of course but the challenge is not that the safety is is not being observed because for example consider the gas equipment to be faulty in the property blows up house burnt down everybody loses so so for me I would like to think that this is common sense.

          requesting here appears to be and...

          I have to respond to this.

          Whether you are pro-landlord or pro-tenant, the safety of the occupiers are a hell of a lot more important than the ability of a landlord to evict a tenant without grounds....

          The general rules for HMOs in England and Wales are described at https://www.gov.uk/house-in-multiple-occupation-licence:

          [/LIST]So assuming that the friend of the family counts as a separate household, if there’s five or more people in the property, you probably need a licence. If there’s...
