    Protection from eviction due to coronavirus... not so much

    The draft has finally been published.... and it's a non-retroactive temproary extension of notice period to at least 3 months. Court shutting down is going to have more of an effect than notice extension.

    Good.

    Tenants were taking the p*ss, if threads here are anything to go by.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

          So my tenant gets another 3+ months for free and I'm supposed to pay the mortgage? I started s21 in November ffs.

            Do tenant will owe rent. When this is all over and assuming you both survive sue him him for the money.

              I don't think she cares about credit or a reference, will probably just beg to council when the baillifs finally turn up ( hopefully this year)

                  Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

                  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?

                  There...

                  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.
