    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.)

          It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

          I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
          I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
          I do not intend to live at the property
          Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
          As its...

          I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

          Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

          If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

          That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

          The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
          The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...

          I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

          You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

          I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

          I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
