    There is (polite, calm..) hostility between me & any tenant after 5 days of missed/short rent and no genuine reason.

    Strongly suggest you don't agree any payment plan, certainly not written: PLEASE tell us that you served the s21 & s8? You can do so in person, by hand through letterbox, ideally with witness & photo of envelope going in TODAY!

    btw your tenant may be viewing this, it's an open forum.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      You've been taken for a ride and now - having taken your generosity too far - is putting the frighteners on you in the hope you leave him alone in your house that he's not paying you rent for!

      What I mean is that now we understand why he's playing so peculiarly nastily all of a sudden. Get him out asap.

        The OP's posts apart from the very first one that started the thread have all disappeared.

          Some people like to make the unilateral decision to delete threads, but they can't delete the original post (as that would effectively delete the entire thread).

          Pretty rude in my opinion, removing much of the context of a thread and effectivly binning the efforts of anyone who has offered advice.

          • Subletting a garage
            steve-123
            I own a flat in a block that I rent out to a doctor.

            I've been renting the flat's garage separately for the past two years to a builder who uses it to store work tools and equipment.

            Another lease holder in the building has complained about this and is asking that the garage...

            BlueMystery
            My son took a 6 month AST out in October 2018.

            In March 2019, the management agency advised if he wanted to stay in the property he needed an extension to the agreement, and charged him £90 for the priviledge - although they gave him nothing in the form of new paperwork. He simply signed...

            It's not illegal, or at least not based on recent legislation. There is a transition period in which exit charges still apply, if agreement was made before June.

            There are cases where charges may be made because of exceptional arrangements, even when the new law is fully applied.

            before this letter, I received a letter of order from the courts saying:

            it is hereby heard in court that:

            the licence agreement is in a different name to the claimant (or something like that)

            How on earth did the landlord's claim get struck out when you didn't bother to turn up?
