    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.

      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.
        I am not a lawyer, nor am I licensed to provide any regulated advice. None of my posts should be treated as legal or financial advice.

        I do not answer questions through private messages which should be posted publicly on the forum.

          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.

          • Finding new tenant
            artin
            Hi
            Tenants are leaving so looking for new ones for a 2 bedroom flat.
            I usually use state agents and they found 2 single guys which I met last Friday. Both engineers, mid 20s with masters degree and working for the same reasonably medium size company who employ 700 people. Both pleasant...

            I am accepting them but having rent guarantee insurance in case plus as above 2 months inspections. I also asked the estate agent to add a condition where to ask me if they want to add any bulky furniture except study desks for each bedroom which they wanted me to supply but I refused.

            Luke
            Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)?
            Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only?
            Q3 – What date did current TA start dd/mm/yy?
            Q4 – How long was initial fixed term (6/12/24 months...

            There isn't (as far as I know) any accepted definition for someone moving out and back in.
            It would be (I think) something that would be decided on the facts of the specific issue.

            If your last tenancy agreement says that there is no deposit, I'd rely on that.
            You can always...

          • Cat Urine Smell
            Lucymcmullen
            Hi All, I am looking for some advise please. I've just rented a house and there is a very strong cat urine smell that is unbearable. The house stank when I viewed it but the previous tenant was still there at the time with the cats so I assumed the smell was coming from the litter box. I was informed...

            Cat urine is a health hazard.
            Whether it's serious enough a hazard to make a property uninhabitable isn't something I know enough to comment on.

            On a practical level, the flooring and carpets need to be replaced.
            Bicarbonate of Soda will dry out the carpets and floor and kill...

            Luke
            What is the legally accepted definition of the tenants moving out of a property and cessation of previous TA ?
            Would it be written notice from the tenant giving date of leaving ?
            Or would T have to vacate the property for a certain amount of time ?
            How could I legally put an end to...

            If there is no health hazard, I would have thought it was lettable, but with significantly depressed market rent.

            Bicarbonate of soda is the way to deal with this as mentioned above - but if it has soaked through to the floorboard all floor coverings will need to be removed first & then replaced once the floorboards have been scrubbed.

            The smell, whilst unpleasant, is not a health hazard if the...

          • Transfer of deposit mid-tenancy
            M Clavell
            My letting agents have issued a termination notice mid-tenancy. I am therefore left to manage the property until the current TA expires and deal with end-of-tenancy obligations, in particular the deposit. My query is this: Can I arrange for the transfer of the deposit from the current letting agents'...
