    Breeding dogs without evidence

    Our tenants have broken the tenancy agreement 9 times - painting my kitchen cupboards and chopping down trees. So it’s section 21. My issue is. We allowed 3 dogs and were told they would be housed outside and they intended to build a kennel. This hadn’t happened, instead they seem to be converting the garage, they have a 4th dog without permission and have advertised 2 sets of pups due. Not yet born.

    Their leaving date is at the start of Oct. The “planned” pups won’t be ready to go by then and they will find it difficult to find accommodation with all their dogs before pups are due to leave mum.

    If this ended up in court. Would the court take the dogs in to consideration.?

    Shall we serve a section 8 now.?

    Would you wait for the pups to be born and involve the council, as we believe they don’t hold a license?. Or would this delay not to provoke the situation.

    We have asked the tenant to answer a number of questions including their intentions regarding what we consider at the moment to be illegal dog breeding - we recieved a reply saying leave us alone, we will go in Oct and if we bother them again they will contact their solicitor. They have had quiet enjoyment of the property. What would you do?.

    Advice appreciated.

    As the T has stated, there isn't much more you can do, see if they leave in Oct, if not follow up with proceeding to the courts and eventually bailiffs if they have not left.

      Why kick the hornets' nest? Let them move out peacefully without antagonisng them further as it will only be you who has to pay the cost otherwise. It will be up to the next landlord to do due diligence before taking them on as tenants & you can tell him/her your concerns if they ask for a reference.

      Honestly, they don't sound like ideal tenants by any stretch of the imagination & they've caused damage when unprovoked. Imagine what mess they'd leave behind once you've reported them?

        As said, leave them alone, its all too late now anyway, the damage has been done, if you keep annoying them it could simply mean they do not leave and you have a lot more stress to come, simply tighten up your tenant choice for the future and pick better prospects.

          Thank you - makes sense - a section 21 has been served. Sadly I was stupid enough not to ask for a separate deposit for their pets. Lesson learnt. It just infuriates me that they are getting away with it and breeding dogs without the authorities being informed and what seems like inflated prices.

            That is Disney Land to what is really going out there, all under the nose of the govt and whilst claiming every benefit known to man.

              Are you aware of the provisions of the Tenant Fees Act?

                  I would suggest some landlord training and then you may not make other mistakes too, (such as allowing 3 dogs in the first place).

                    I was going to allow dogs in a property I bought to rent out. There were some viewings. One of the applicants had a small dog. (they said) I looked on social media for their name and on it was a photo of this enormous dog (a suitable name would be "Fang") So I asked the letting agent to remove Pets Considered. The letting agent said that there is such a shortage of rental property that Landlords dont need to accept pets anymore.

                      Once you're certain that your deeds are correct on the matter and not in conflict with his deeds, you can send him a letter demanding that he remove his fence and reinstate yours or one substantially similar. If he doesn't comply, you would send a Letter Before Action and ultimately sue him for the...

                      Hello,

                      On my Deeds, it shows which fence is my responsibility, and I have always maintained it.

                      My new neighbour acquired the property next door, and later, without my knowledge or prior agreement, removed the fence completely, and replaced it with a lower one.

                      You could look in an area that has companies nearby or where you have relatives who could manage it on a holiday let/Airbnb basis for you whilst you're away. You would need to pay them for cleaning/laundry/advertising and managing bookings etc plus whatever profit is appropriate, but you would still...

                      Does anyone know how I might find myself a flat to live in that I can later sublet in its entirety?

                      I am wanting to spend 6 months at a time in Canada and then 6 months in the UK and repeat this - while keeping the same UK address and subletting the UK flat while I am away in Canada each...

                      Do this........ get all your ' ducks in a row ' before you do anything in court, the courts can be harsh with those who do not have all the facts/paperwork in place, it does not come down to right or wrong, but what you can prove.

                      I think its highly unlikely that they are going to take you to court for illegal eviction with the accusation that you deprived them of the ability to run the cannabis farm. Just take possession and move-on.

                      I have a tenant on a long lease (12 months to run), I need to evict them with a section 8 which will be focused on the fact they were running a cannabis farm. Tenants seem to have run off, haven't heard from them in 3 weeks. If as you might expect they don't contest the eviction, will I definitely...

                      I had a call from a tenant stating the central heating controller has stopped working. On arrival at the house, the controller was blank. I removed it from the wall and put an electrical tester on the backing plate, it had no power. I ask my electrician to attend the house, he arrived when I was there....
