    Quite possibly, but there needs to be more than that to happen.

    First of all, calling the council isn't enough to trigger the retaliatory eviction provisions, the tenant has to have pointed out the issues in writing to the landlord and not received a satisfactory reply within 14 days.

    And the notice issued subsequently by the local authority has to be one of:
    a notice served under section 11 of the Housing Act 2004 (improvement notices relating to category 1 hazards),
    OR a notice served under section 12 of that Act (improvement notices relating to category 2 hazards), or
    OR a notice served under section 40(7) of that Act (emergency remedial action);

    So anything other than one of those notices won't have any effect on the notice.

    Schedule Of works v Improvement Notice v S21

    We are preparing our S21 paperwork to remove an unwanted tenant in an HMO.

    The tenant has called the LA to get advice, they then called the council, the Private Sector Housing Officer wants to visit next Wednesday.

    Almost certainly the council will issue a "Schedule of Works" even if its small minor things to comply with HMO regs

    ​​​​​​AN "Improvement Notice" will invalidate a S21.!!

    Is a "Schedule of works" the same as an Improvement notice??

    Ie has the tenant called the council deliberately to stop us serving the S21??

    Thanks for both your replies.

    It was fully managed.

    yes I do plan to speak to agent. My concern is they will try and use it as leverage to insert themselves in the sale process. Just wondered if anyone else has hit anything similar?

    The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

    With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

    Almost anything beats working for a living.

    Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.


    Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

    Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
