Tenant rescinding notice, but not paid rent in full.

    The snag I see is that if a notice is invalid and the parties agree the tenancy should end what you effectively have is an agreement to surrender which is only valid if it complies with the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989. Once the tenant has left and the landlord has taken back control there will have been a suurender by operation of law, but up to then the position has to be doubtful.

      I would be inclined to say that if a Leaseholder requires a Car charging station, the leaseholder pays the full cost of that instalation, and not have all leaseholders paying serice charges for instalations that don't benefit them.
      Yes, a station, as trailing an extention lead out of a window

      I have 2 flats in a block of 12, the car park is attached to the grounds the flats are on, i have been thinking about the future of car ownership and have come to the conclusion that the flats may be less desirable to rent after 2030 given they have zero charging points (obviously) but more importantly...

      Thank you Slackjawedyokel.

      I was amazed how many people from the block where my tenant lived came to support me on the day the eviction took place. They all knew what was going on and they were all tenants themselves. He did not cause them any problem.

      I told my tenant...

      Hello All

      Give her notice. As an excluded occupier she has got limited rights. It is not like evicting a tenant. Having not paid rent, I'm not sure if she has any right to occupy(?) I did look into this once but never found a very conclusive answer.

      If you get into real problems you can change the...

      by Obiter
      There is only one County Court in England and Wales. The County Court identified in a GCRO will be that County Court. There used to be many County Courts, but they have been merged into one. The wording of the Practice Direction is merely a relic of the previous arrangement....
