    S21 now or in April?

    Tenent is a pain in the backside with an attitude problem. This months rent has been paid but only part of the previous month. Once I issue a S21 I suspect I will get no rent and an awful lot of damage can be done in 6 months. So would you issue it now or wait until April when it should be 2 months notice again. Or is there a possibility they with ban them altogether then? I'd rather have a year without rent than him as a tenant I can't evict.

    I'd serve s21 and s8 TODAY. Possibly MCoL also

    You'll have years to collect.

      I have zero confidence that the 6 months notice will end ..... at all.

        What material losses are you incurring? Lost rent / damage etc?

        These are crazy times and whilst I don’t think finding new tenants will be hard. Getting rid of a bad one will be nearly impossible for a while so if it were only hassle and a little behind in rent I’d probably put it up with it for a few months until the situation (hopefully) clears (a little at least!)

          I would issue S21 and S8. Time passes quickly.

            I'd try and pay him off.

              Well there you have it. No clear winner here. Do let us know how you get on

                Well I was hoping there would be a consensus one way or the other! I've tried writing off the rent arrears if he moves out but he doesn't want to go. This month's rent is due soon so I'll wait and see if he pays up, if he doesn't the decision is easy. I'm not at all confident S21 will return to 2 months notice in April. My money would be on permanent 6 months notice or abolition of it altogether. Also not sure how much notice we will get of a permanent change?

                  Now more than ever it would seem the world is full of difficult choices with no decent answers.

                  Brexit....
                  COVID....

                  Best of luck, hopefully you can minimise your losses and get rid of him soon
