    Royal Household tenancies

    Never even heard of this until I read the article,, I'm sure there is some exaggeration in the reporting, but in if there is a Royal Household tenancies which are except, aren't we all meant to be in the same boat?

    Oh, well as the Queen is ultimately the landlord, she can do what she bl**dy well likes.

    Prince Charles spouting his green nonsense seems even more of a jerk now, doesn't he?


      It was theft, plain and simple. If they needed the electricity they should have asked first. and having been given permission, arranged for a qualified electrician to install the correct socket. They weren't given permission but went ahead anyway. If a tenant was stealing off me, I'd evict them too. If a tenant was messing about with the electricity in a dangerous way, I'd evict them. Who knows what they'd be up to next?


        From the article:
        The couple received the eviction letter in October, which did not specify the reason for the eviction, but they suspect it is because they charged the car.
        So they are just guessing that they have been kicked out because of their admitted illegal activity.


          On the surface of it this sounds very unfair and over the top, it also makes a mockery of Charlies '' green '' credentials.


            I wasn't looking at the green credential sides of the issue, or the theft, I was thinking more of how quickly they can get an eviction while the rest of will now have to wait a year or longer.


              I live close to lots of Crown Estate (1 mile from Windsor Great Park). Crown estate is owned by the people, having been given to the state by George III in exchange for paying off his debts & getting a guaranteed large annual bung (initially civil list then sovereign grant, was 15% of CE profits bumped up to 25% by Gideon Osborne, yes the one who stuffed landlords over tax). Yet a certain family still continue to claim they own it, together with their excellently paid legal advisers.

              From time to time Great Park advertises properties for rent. I emailed them a couple of times, asking for details (being bleedin' nosey). They are standard ASTs, but clearly falling out with the Crown Estate (chief ranger, a role in existence for over 1,000 years is Duke of Edinburgh...) is unwise: Powerful friends. Suspect they went knowing it was the prudent thing to do.

              Two of my relatives have dined at Windsor Castle.

              But yes, shouldn;t have "stolen" (abstracted) the leccy.
              I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

                I doubt it's an eviction. The media rarely use the correct term, particularly the rags. Most probably they received a notice seeking possession.

                  I suspect the landlord used to live there and has forgotten to change his address with the land registry , easily done.

                  Quite possible that the landlord didnt put the restrictive covenant in the tenancy agreemnet or they are just ignoring it - is there anywhere else that they could park...

                  We have a house where there are new tenants causing all sorts of problems and I need to contact the landlord.

                  I have checked with the local letting agents and come up with nothing.

                  I have the details from the land registry and the owner is registered to the property address!...

                  Have tried that. Landlord unknown to neighbours. They have seen her at the property a couple of times and that is it. I have only seen her once.

                  Not had a problem with the previous tenants....

                  Yes have tried the neighbours. The the tenants are breaching a restrictive covenant by parking in the road blocking access to other properties. The property is on a private road with well defined restrictions and stipulations.

                  I have tried to speak to them as have other neighbours and...

                  Have you knocked on some of the neighbors and asked them ? The landlord is rather foolish if he or she has not got a different correspondence address other than the let property, there have been cases where tenants have attempted to sell the rented house !!!! As all land registry paperwork goes to the...

                  It needs to be a possession order originated from a s8 notice, not a s21 for someone who just happens to have more than 6 months unpaid. From another poster here, the bailiffs/HCEOs is asking for the possession order to explicitly state that the court is satisfy that the arrears is more than six months...

                  Reputedly they can - but is it happening? Are tenants just claiming Covid for more time?

                  Case has gone through court, and today 21 Jan is day due to give up possession but not sign of them moving! No argument from their side - just not paying, didn't show up in court and totally non-communicative....

                  I can only imagine that should the court do that (which i don't think they will) then it would be on the same basis your father in law lived there, so rent would not come into it. I cannot see how she would have the same right as the father of your husband, its the family relationship that ultimately...

                  Hi my husband was given a property as a deed of gift after his mother passed away in 1991 from his father. My husband put in place through the solicitor that his father could live rent free in the property but had to pay bills and any repairs or updating. His father married later the same year. The...
