    Landlord wants to move back into home

    Hello

    I want to move back into my home. My 2 tenants are under AST, however I am happy for them to remain as lodgers if they wish going forward. I have not issued any notice to vacate yet as if they want to remain they can do but then I would be a live-in landlord under presumably different agreement. How do I go about doing this?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    They do not have to let you back in.

    Even if they did let you back in they would still have ASTs.

    Either evict or bribe to leave. Check any s21 against Nearly legal's checker.

    I want a helicopter but prospects look bleak.

      Did you tell the tenants that there was a possibility that you would want to move back in before you gave them the tenancy?

      The chances of someone switching from renting to being a lodger are pretty remote (in my view), but yes, in theory, you would need to bring the tenancy to a formal end and then begin again as lodgers.
      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).

        Fixed term or periodic?

        Does tenancy permit use of ground for repossession by landlord returning?

          Periodic - not the AST does not state ground for repo by return of landlord, I think I will just do S21 and let that play out as it seems easier....

            If you evict, they leave -even just for a day - then nothing to stop you offering ledger agreement. Doubt they'd be keen mind....

              I have interest from a prospective new tenant whose current landlord gave her two months' notice on 25 October (he wants to sell the property). Her rental period is monthly and runs from the 25th of each month so, as she has not yet given a month's notice, she feels obliged to pay the rent right up...

              I had not actively considered coming to a different conclusion based on whether there had been any communication of the tenant's intention prior to his departure, and have no difficulty in agreeing with you that there is a surrender where, for example, the parties have arranged to handover keys and...

              I have a housing benefit tenant who tops up since 2013. Since than we have renewed her contract twice as council were giving her trouble. Her last contract was issued on 9/4/2015, so as I understand it is now a periodic tenancy. The contract states that rent is monthly but the housing benefit pays 4...

              You can use Form 6A. In fact, you may have to use Form 6A depending on how legislative amendment and commencement is interpreted. It's not something worth taking a risk over, just use the prescribed form.

              Before the HA 1988 came into force the law recognised various ways in which a tenancy could come to an end and they did not include the tenant simply leaving. Nothing in the HA 1988 changed that.

              It is a fundamental principle of landlord and tenant law that at any given moment the parties...

              Despite when the rent was actually paid, it was due on the 20th of the month, and the tenancy was monthly from 20th to the 19th of each month.

              You can serve s21 notice giving a minimum of 2 month's notice ending on any date, but ending on 19th would be most convenient in terms of working...

            • Which Portal For Finding New Tenants
              Claymore
              Hi

              My preferred Portal has generally been Upad for finding new tenants (SE London area).

              Have just discovered Upad's fees have shot right up and their minimum fee is £149. Quite a jump from £99.

              Any recommendations for alterntive advertising?

              Many...

              I use lettingaproperty.com for property in S W London. Advert goes online promptly and enquiries come through quickly. Very satisfied with them. However they have also increased their prices but not quite as much. Last August 2017 £99. This July 2018 £129.

              these are clauses from tenancy tenancy agreement reads

              " The term of tenancy is for one year to commence 20 August 2014.

              Should the tenant remain in possession of the property with the consent of landlord after the natural expiration of this agreement, a new tenancy...
