    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....

              tl;dr : Both Conservatives and Labour in England, and the government in Wales now has as its policy going forward of abolishing no fault (i.e. s21) evictions.

              Looks like another good reason not to use section 8: Tenant thinks that by destroying the place, he can use the disrepair to avoid eviction. (And another good reason to keep your s21 up to date if you have those sort of tenants.)

              Hi guys

              i have tennants who owe me 6 months rents, and stopped paying and won’t hand the key back, served section 8 and 21, court hearing in few months,

              Never been to court, so after some advice, do I need to take evidence I.e texts to show me chasing for rent and not paying...

              I am very sorry to hear that.

              You may be able to call the police for malicous damage.

              Property insurance for landlords, normally do not cover malicous damage by default, only accidental, however it is usually available as part of additional premium. Check your coverage small...

              I am not experienced enough to offer the advice i know you need, but is suspect (as you have seen) that the police will be of no use in this instance, they will still see it as a civil dispute right up and until the whole interior is destroyed. I am so sorry this is happening to you and i trust a member...

              Wondered if anyone has thoughts on use of s21 (while we still can!) when a tenant has been great at paying rent but is just very demanding - significantly more work than the other four properties combined. The main issue is mould on the walls - it’s an old building recently refitted to modern insulation...

              Tell the tenant the property is not suitable for their lifestyle and invite them to leave, s21 if they dont.

              Thanks all. I suspect leaving the whisper quiet extractor fan on will fix the problem. Hard to tell because he hasn't left it on. And if he turns that off he'll turn off a PIV system too.

              MdeB - yes Jpkeates is right. Warmer air can hold more moisture so there's more water to condense...

              The moisture that's in the air has to go somewhere, if the updated insulation has closed off where it used to escape, it'll hang around until it finds a cooler surface to condense on.

              If a damp expert declined to do anything about it, that suggests that whatever they could do, they knew...
