    Seeking eviction

    Hi everyone,I was wondering if someone could help, I have a family member who is renting out his property ,the tenant has been there roughly 14 years she lives there with her 2 older children who also work ,the issue is for the last few months she hasn't been paying the rent and also been slating him on social media which he has found out about, the other problem is that there is no actual tenancy agreement in place as far as I no just a contract saying he is the landlord and how much the rent is each month, where does he stand in processing with any sort of possession of the property?
    hope this all makes sense and thanks for reading.

    We need to establish if this is a 'regulated tenancy'.

    'Roughly 14 years' is a bit vague - when exactly did she move in and under what circumstances?

    Did your family member buy the property with the tenant in situ?

    We would know exactly what the contract says.

    What sort of thing is tenant alleging on social media?

    Freedom at the point of zero............


      If there's a document that says who the landlord is and what the rent is, that's a start.
      When did the tenant move in?

      And what are they saying on social media and is it true?
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


        Thanks for the reply, I'll find out the full ins and outs, he had already bought the house before deciding to rent it as he'd moved out of the country , I will get him to send me over all relevant information if he can find it all, he knows he can't do anything in the current situation anyways.


          Could you answer these?

            If he bought with tenant already living there, until he serves valid notice(s) complaint with s48 & s3 he's not fully the landlord.

            s48 no rent due, s3 possible fines & criminal conviction.

            Not to mention problem of tenant having to witthhold part of rent for taxx man

              indicates that it did not come tenanted.

                        The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

                        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...

                        Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...

                        My tenant who is 4 months into her tenancy agreement has moved her partner in without permission and Im wondering can use this to issue a new tenancy agreement with his name on it. She isn't the easiest tenant and I would also like to add an agreement break to the new tenancy because of the difficulty...

                        In general time of course is more important than money, but often it is the ownership of enough money that gives you free time ! The tenants i doubt were thinking in such terms though, they were simply bone idle, i grew up in a dirty house as a child, the time my parents saved with not cleaning did...

                        Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

                        House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant

                        The property was inspected - although Covid has it effect - but the tenant is entitled to live as they wish during the tenancy. It only became a problem when they failed to bring the property back to the condition they took it in when they left.

                        I was just amazed that they could so easily...
