  • HMO - How do I evict a tenant?

    I have a tenant who I wish to evict for non payment of rent?

    The property is shared with others each on seperate AST's.

    The tenant in question informed me I need to provide alternative accomadation for them if I wish to reclaim the property as I did not mention I may move back to the property at the outset of the tenancy.

    Also the original tenancy was destroyed in a fire and I do not have a copy, how do I go about claiming the uppaid rent and removal of this tenant with out removing the rest of the tenants in the property? Legally.

    Please help, Thank you!

    The lack of a written AST is a pain but not a problem. You DO NOT have to provide alternative accomodation.
    Just issue the tenant with a S.21 notice, or S.8 if the facts fit.

      If the property is 3 storey or more and is occupied by 5 or more persons in 2 households and is licensable you cant use a section 21 notice, so just issue a section 8 notice as colin says as long as he owes enough rent, which I believe is 8 weeks worth

        8 weeks if rent is weekly, two months if it's monthly for ground 8.

        If it's a licensable HMO and you don't have one or a temporary exemption then you can't use sec 21's.

        If you are using a sec 21 and don't have a tenancy agreement you might want to use the Lower Street Properties wording rather than give a date which you require possession after.

        Is rent due weekly? if so you should have provided the tenant with a rent book.

              • Landlord asks that T to pay deposit protection charge each time we renew AST
                JP23
                Why must we continuously renew our deposit with the scheme each time we re-sign our AST i.e. every 12 months?

                Why can the deposit not remain protected throughout the duration of the overall tenant occupation?

                Is our landlord acting in questionable faith by asking us to pay...

                Hello
                i am a landlord and have insurance based deposit protection (I hold the deposit in segregated client account and register it with My Deposits) every time a new contract is drawn up we have to pay £48. If a tenancy is renewed, we pay £48. If someone moves out of one of our multiple tenant...

                I have a property which I started renting out via an agency. When the contract started, they found new tenants, did the relevant checks etc and charged an upfront fee which equates to approx one month's rent. As one year has almost passed, the agent has approached me asking if I want them to 'renegotiate'...

                If you have no ongoing contract with the agent and it was "find" only, they have no right to force you into a new AST.

                Depending on the terms of your contract there's nothing to prevent you, if your feeling confident, in renewing the contract yourself and taking over.

                Fees for 'renewing' will not be in the tenancy agreement because they are not fees of the tenancy and are freely negiotiated.

                The landlord should simply charge an admin fee to renew and set it to include all his costs...

                There is a derelict property with good potential in my area. The owner tried to sell it in a local auction few years back and did not get what he wanted (actually did but got greedy). Now he can even sell it for cheaper than what he was getting in the auction. Property has good potential...

                Make the owner an offer to purchase.

                There is no charge and it doesn't need reprotecting if it's in a custodial scheme. If it's in an insurance based scheme then landlord is holding it and can be claiming interest on it, it's therefore very cheeky but not illegal to pass the cost onto you.

                Ask him if he can use a custodial...

                Yes, but if we're talking renewal, then it'll inevitably be in it.

                Is it insured or custodial. Insured, meh. Custodial, wholly unreasonable....
