    Got a possession order , tenant wants to re-supply prescibed info, shall I

    I got a possession order on the discretionary ground. A day later, tenant called and said he couldn't find the EPC and 'how to rent' booklet which I have given to him and he has signed. Asked me to supply to him urgently. I am wondering if I should re-supply them to him? Can I charge £10 for admin? Is he trying challenge the order? Is he playing any trick? Please please help me. The battle seems just goes on, seems never end, so exausting!

    What possible interest could he have in the EPC now, other than as a stick to hit you with?

    I would not send him anything except a letter from the bailiff.

      He can get the EPC from the publicly available EPC register.

      He can get the right to rent booklet from the publicly available .gov website.

      He's probably trying to catch you out and make you panic that you didn't serve the info correctly in the first place.

      I'd just carry on with your possession process.

        He's been wrongly advised that these relate to the repossession notice.

        Give them to him. Why not?
        Include a copy of his signed confirmation that he'd received them.
        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).

          He'll be hoping the EPC is under an E.

            Thanks, all. JK0, theEPC is under E, is there going to be a problem?

              Not as long as you don't shoot yourself in the foot, by sending him one.

              Seriously, no, you'll be okay as long as no new tenancy or periodic tenancy starts after 1/4/18. I believe that's the correct date.

                If you are sure you have already served them then don't send them again. He may try to say that he's only just received them.

                  Thanks very much for your advice, JK0. Yeah, I read that it only comes into effect for existing tenant after 1/4/2020. Is that ok to give him theEPC ? as i agreed over the phone, feel bad to break my promise but if it's going to set myself on fire, I have to break it

                    The guy obviously wants the information to launch some sort of appeal. Even if you win the appeal, that is still going to set you back in time, isn't it? Therefore, why help him to appeal?

                    Edit: Also, what Kape 65 said.

                      Supply him with dated EPC registered for that address and charge him £10 before GDPR takes effect on 25thMay.

                        Is that your considered opinion based on posts #1 to #10, or have you only read the first one?

                            If only one co-owner one can sign the tenancy agreement does this mean that this implies that the other agree to it. And what happens if only one co-owner signs a tenancy agreement and the other does not agree does it make the tenancy agreement invalid and what happens to the tenants who has already...

                            The landlord of a lease is whoever is named as the landlord on the tenancy agreement if there is one, if there isn't it depends on to whom rent is paid. The landlord doesn't have to own the property they are letting, so who owns the property doesn't affect who is the landlord.

                            If one co-owner...

                            So, for the last year and a half we've had a young woman as a model tenant. She's improved the house no end and keeps it immaculate and only rarely raises very minimal and perfectly acceptable maintenance requests. Very pleasant lady all round.

                            The other day, our agent told us that she'd...

                            I've been doing a tidy up of my old files.
                            I have invoice folders for my estate agency from 2010/2011/2012.
                            Should i be disposing of everything older than 6 years?
                            Should i keep soft copies?

                            Keep everything IIWY.

                            HMRC can go back as long as they like if they suspect criminality. How will you prove you aren't a criminal if you don't have the papers?

                            Don't think you "have to give permission".

                            Consider tenant who doesn't pay rent one month. You don't have to give permission for this (or not..), they remain liable to eviction under s8g10. Or one who fails to pay rent 3 months in a row then starts again, but still 3 months...

                            In reality, I can't see a s8 notice on that basis alone resulting in repossession, on the basis that a) it's disproportionate to be made homeless for a breach of that nature and b) that courts don't want to make people homeless if they can avoid it.

                            The term should probably be "which...

                            Have I missed something, or is it impossible for joint landlords to be recorded in the DPS Custodial Scheme in the way that joint tenants are separately identified? Does anyone think that a problem could arise over deposit protection issues where the record shows the identity of only one of two joint...
