    Rubbish left

    I've a tenant who has left rubbish behind and one monster wardrobe..ive an impartial inventory due do I step back and let that take place with photos etc then wait 7 days before I can remove it. As per the contract. He is ignoring my letters. I will take him to small claims for the damage to property. He hasn't paid his last months rent which I'd already clsimed through the DPS.

    We don't know what the agreement says, but normally you would need to comply with the Tort Interference with Goods Act.

      It says liable for removing and storing 7 days to clear.

        7 days is on the short side. I have no idea whether a court would find that reasonable.

          That doesn't seem to give you any special right to dispose of it. It might in fact, give the tenant an extra 7 days' grace.

            I would suppose it depends on your definition of "Rubbish".

            'One mans trash is another mans treasure' google it.

              How long since he left? If he's been ignoring all your efforts of communication, I would sent one last text to say he's got X days to collect his belongings-after that they will be disposed of!

                Although this has happened, so there's nothing to be done this time, next time, I'd suggest not doing this.

                The rent is a really simple legal claim - there's not really any defence the tenant can make.
                The compensation for damage is more complex and easy to defend.
                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).

                  You won't fit the proper legal notice in an SMS.

                    by Landyman
                    Are you saying that the toilet and basin are out in the open, adjacent to the kitchen? Or are they in a separate room?

                    Does the room have a window? Or a fan ventilator?

                    It's had to visualise exactly what you mean. Could you sketch a simple floorplan and upload that here p...

                    Hello,

                    A rented flat with a toilet (of course) and basin next to the kitchen, and a bedroom with a quite small en suite - shower/basin/rail for towel ... Is this acceptable in a flat - with no additional separate bathroom?

                    Flat consists of 1 bedroom en suite, hallway, lounge,...

                    I have rented my house to a {name removed} who use it to house Asylum seekers from a govt contract. In June the flat roof developed a leak and they asked me to fix it which I did the next day. 6 months later I get a bill for £1900 for scaffolding, asbestos survey, party wall agreement & for some...

                    Hi,
                    I'm trying to assist a family member who is in the process of surrendering a lease on a shared flat (all tenants moving out). The landlord agreed as the reasons were reasonable. He's sent an email stating that there will be costs that the tenants have to meet, charged by the letting agent...

                    But if you had a valid certificate when the tenancy started but failed to give it to the tenant, then I believe that providing them with a current certificate before serving S21 will be OK....

                    by ReginaPhalangi
                    We've been renting out our property since 2017 and now have given notice to our tenants to leave. However we have just realised that we have failed to get a gas certificate during their tenancy. Is it possible to get the gas certificate now? Would we need to give notice again after we issue the gas...

                    There are a number (of the order of 20) of grounds under which possession can be sought. See the Housing Act 1988.



                    The claim is for the period for which they were paying rent whilst there was no required licence in place, up to a maximum of 12 months. Getting a licence ends...

                    That depends on when the tenancy started.


                    Or, possibly, the one in place when it is given to the tenant. The regulations are ambiguous...

                    4. Antisocial behaviour…..a fair and consistent approach to everyone. No. 4 is then not mentioned in the extended information (click link). Surely this needs explaining in detail or, maybe, they haven’t actually thought further that the nine words used. No surprise.
