    It's nothing to do with the council or shelter.
    He's living there because you allowed him to.
    Now you've changed your mind, he has to leave - it's your home.

    I appreciate that the reality is more complicated than that, but that's the legal position.
    Sounds like the council were right!

    As Andrew says. Then change locks. Police if he does anything silly.

    Better luck with next partner!

    Sounds as if he is your lodger. Presuming that is the case you can give him reasonable notice (like a month) and then lock him out.

    Aha. You do have to love councils, they're so helpful aren't they...
    Pretty sure you'll get some very good advice here, the contributors have helped me immensely.

    thank you for your reply, yes I have I was told to take independent legal advice. I tried calling Shelter but their lines were engaged all day, I shall try again tomorrow, I posted here on the off chance that someone could give me advice as there appears to be a lot of good knowledge on these boards.

    Have you been in touch with the council? It sounds like they made his status 'permitted occupier' in case of this very situation.

    Permitted Occupier

    Thankyou for reading my post I hope someone is able to assist. I live in a council flat, I moved here 5 months ago. When I applied for the flat my husband and I were estranged and I applied for it in my own right only - by the time I took possession of the flat we had reconciled, the council would not allow him to be a joint tenant due to the fact that we had only just reconciled and they made him a permitted occupier. Sadly despite my best efforts our reconciliation is not working and I am desperately unhappy. I would like us to go our separate ways and start afresh. I think however he will not be willing to move out amicably. What are my rights here? His rights? Can he refuse to leave? It is I alone who have paid all the rent and bills for the home.

    If anything she has done has breached a term of her tenancy agreement, you can serve notice.
    But there is currently no access to a court to escalate the issue if she declines to leave in line with it.
    Even with access to a court, a judge may decline to evict.

    You could pay her...

    Hello Members,

    I find myself in a rather difficult situation. I rent out my property to four individuals on separate AST's.
    My most recent tenant has been causing issues in the property, constantly argumentative, belittling and offensive comments.
    All three tenants have individually...

    Its a slippery slope. As soon as a tenant finds out that you are not going to do anything about late payments or rent arrears they take the pith.
    Ask yourself what a professional would do ? As soon as a payment was late I would assume they would send a 7 day notice to pay with a notice that if...

    It depends on the judge.
    Often they're just happy to have an excuse to delay / defer a hearing.

    So if possession is based on unpaid rent and another court is going to come to a decision on the rent, possession can be deferred.

    And it might have no impact at all.

    Hi,

    I have a new tenant moving in. Ive got the contract and Condition Report ready to go but I dont have access to a printer. Is it enough for me to email these to the tenant and ask them in writing to respond theyre happy with it all?

    Thanks...
