    Well for a start, as MdeB says, it talks about paying double rent, which isn't really helpful.

    It uses "time" instead of "date" to refer to when a notice expires, and I think it actually does mean time, rather than date, that's not a change in meaning. Notices shouldn't have times.

    Every other section of it has been repealed or replaced, so it's a 23 section act with one active section.

    It uses the legal formulation of the 18th Century, with an introduction and then remedy*. There's no conventional legal formatting. You couldn't really expect anyone to read it and understand it easily.

    Apart from that, it's probably fine.

    *The US constitution uses the same formulation - "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." And that's not been controversial at all...
    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).

      I believe that that is because the rest of the act was to do with distress, i.e. seizing tenant's goods in lieu of unpaid rent; distress for rent has been abolished. Interestingly (to me) the repeals have been over a period of about 130 years.

      The double rent section is not about distress, it just happens to sit in the Distress for Rent Act.

        I think the NTQ may be your best option. The tenant could defeat it by returning to live there but that would at least enable you to get the rent payments reinstated. If they dont return, the tenancy will end. You can serve the notice at the property, but make sure its also sent to wherever the tenant...

        Your questions are too wide ranging for a forum. The answers would form a long article. Asking questions on here is not a substitute for reading. I suggest you join the NRLA and read all their guides and checklists....

        Thank you for all your knowledge!! I’ve been reading about part 36 - they haven’t said it’s part 36 and they haven’t explained the basis of their figure. Also they have only given 7 days not 21.
        I assume therefore it cannot be taken as part 36?
        I’ve read that part 36 cannot be...

We have tried to claim damages but he does not want to sort this amicably- does anyone have a template pre action protocol letter to start the court process? Any advice...
