    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?

        • Can we follow the German model?
          midlandslandlord
          A thought experiment.

          The standard practice is Germany for long term rental is to rent a shell, and T supplies kitchen and bathroom (and carpets?).

          Given that we and our tenants are just being .. er .. fooked over by another crazy set of rules wrt fees and prevention of recovery...

          This sort of model, which of course only really applies to family lets, requires the tenants to accept that they are going to be tenants for many years if not life and accept the property as their settled home for a good chunk of that time. I dont think we have enough tenants with that sort of mindset...

          My former landlord and letting agent are trying to withheld my deposit. (England 12month AST).
          They are trying to claim I caused damage to the carpets and walls but this damage actually belongs to the second flat in the same building and was caused by the previous tenant of that flat who left...

          You appear to be saying that there are two identical flats in the building and that they do not share any common facilities.

          You further appear to be saying that the other flat was vacated 4 months ago and left in a poor state, AND that the Agent is using photos of that flat to claim money...

          It would depend on the wording, but generally speaking the tenancy agreement documents the terms of the tenancy and doesn't have an existance separate to it.
          It's not helpful that in England, land law and contract law operate slightly differently, but the idea (for example) that the contractual...

          Yes, the tenancy ends, but what about the contract?

          The contract says that it will continue beyond the fixed term unless notice is served to prevent that.
          Shelter seem to believe that if the contract says T must give notice, then LL has a case if T does not.(https://england.shelt...

          You did exactly what your contract required, so notice is deemed served.

          You may wish to point this out to them....

          Of course T can serve notice during the fixed term. It is just that T cannot serve legally-binding notice to quit during the fixed term.

          There is nothing to stop T serving notice on L stating that that they do not intend staying in the property beyond the fixed term....

          The owner of the lettings agency who manage my property sold the business on to a small independent chain 2 months ago, and the 2 staff who worked there apparently moved on for personal reasons, both on Friday.

          You don't want rent paid fortnightly.

          If the tenant is paying fortnightly that causes all kinds of complications with notice, particularly if it's not in line with the original tenancy agreement,

          If the tenant is paying monthly and the agent is sitting on half of it, that would...
