    Can a landlord move in a tenanted house?

    Can a landlord move in the tenanted house? Two rooms are privately rented at the moment and the other room is getting vacate.

    Is this a multiple, "room only" HMO then?? Anything in the existing tenancies preventing it??

    If so, yes, could move in , but

    a) Think relationships will be "interesting"
    b) The existing AST tenants remain AST tenants, they do not ( N O T ! ) become lodgers, so it's not a cunning plan to evict the remainers.. (nothig to do with Br*****it)

      Yes, but it may cause friction with the existing tenants.

      PS. If you are hoping that by doing this you will become a 'live-in landlord' and they will become lodgers, so that you can evict them more easily, then it doesn't work like that.
      They will still be tenants and it would still need a court possession order to evict.

        PS. I see this is your 1st post! Done any training as a landlord or in landlord/tenant law??

        Welcome to LLZ!

        When I started ( 2000 ) I thought I knew what I was doing. Expensive, long-drawn out, painful, complicated mistakes. Resolved to start learning. Still learning, still making mistakes.

        Ah my stupidity! Ah the Hubris!

        PPS Have you just purchased this, with tenants?

          I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

          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
          Garden was left in a mess...

          That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

          Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
          Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

          We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

          Tenant moved in...

          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...

          Lawcruncher,

          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...

In a 2 bed flat...... why the hell would you remove part of a fitted kitchen, what are you going to do with the space....
