    Tenancy in effect immediately?

    If a new tenant moves in but immediately and repetitively breaks house rules knowingly .. can it be revoked with first amount of time? Or is a tenancy Rock solid and I can’t get her out without court from handing keys over to her room in semi detached house?

    ive been renting a house by the room to three adults for 12 years- not many problems..
    but the last one ? ...omg -
    Like is the first 28 days trial period or something, ? God I hope there’s something she’s been in two weeks now and a nightmare. Police called 5/6 times- ABH charge and assault charge on two of my long standing other tenants on usually a harmonious household . I’m
    currently trying to get police bail conditions placed not to return but doesn’t look good and she’s chirping round the house and told me that if I want her out after two weeks I’ll have to take her to court.
    I am literally crying I’m so angry and scared and never had to do this ever.
    Im such a nice landlady and jump to my tenants tune- and needs
    I have long standing ones in other rooms .. but she is the devil! She’s 38 too! Not a kid. Seems like she knows the system
    an ex council tenant on benefits no deposit no up front only two weeks paid by council . Trying to keep this brief.
    Do I have to go down the normal route dyer she doesn’t leave in two weeks Iv told her with section 8?
    Or is there any get out clause trial period I can tied her out on ? Legally .. I’m not one for breaking the law I’m married to a cop🤣
    and no- he can’t help

    I believe once tenant has a conviction for an offence in the property (or accepts a caution for it) you have grounds for eviction with 2 weeks notice. Maybe hubby can help with that?

    This is another good reason to have one tenant, and the others as his lodgers. Anyone misbehaves, and tenant can kick them out almost immediately.

      Thanks .

      Ive already issues letter section 8 and outlined grounds 12 and 14 on it.
      I gave two weeks on it

      She’s sending me texts saying if I want her out I gotta take her to court.

      Police dont really get involved they batt it off as civil matter so they don’t have to deal.

      So so there’s no trial period .. literally as soon as someone’s given keys they can stay put til court gets them out and do as they like? Including assaulting other tenants and causing staples to be put in their scalp?
      (She’s released pending further investigation Cos it was only one word against the other til victim got the other witness statements in.
      So im hoping now charge and bail
      cindiruins not to return to address xx


        I believe you need to use the correct form: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/assured-...y-forms#form-3

        (Not write a letter.)

          I actually signed the terms in the beginning of the contract, and I have not witnessed this before but these guys had another page where they mentioned this. Now my issue is that given how abysmal their service was and me paying from my own pocket, I should have disbanded the contract then. The issue...

          Dear all,

          I was letting my place to tenants that were sourced by this estate agent. The estate agent however misrepresented myself and misled the tenants about what's included in the monthly rental cost. The tenant had complained to the agent however, I had to pay for 6 months of services...

          Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

          Sarah's right of...

          Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

          I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

          Did you use them on a tenant find service only ? If so then read the contract you signed and see what it says about what you are about to do, i use the tenant find service but then let the leases go into periodic, i pay the agent nothing and never have done, maybe if i signed another 12 AST a fee may...

          There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
          That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

          About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

          I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

          I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

          No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
