    I don't believe they have any general right to refuse. They can prevent or decline access and it would be unwise for the landlord to press ahead under these circumstances. They also have a right to quiet enjoyment, but a landlords right to inspection won't conflict with this in normal circumstances. There will no doubt be exceptions from time to time, but its not a right the tenant has.


      They have a specific right to refuse - not based on quiet enjoyment, but on exclusive use and right to exclude anyone, which is another implicit element of a tenancy.

      But the tenant's right to refuse doesn't overcome the landlord's right to inspect.
      It's just that there's no practical way outside a court to resolve the conflicting rights.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


        OK, yes, good point about exclusive possession which I hadn't considered.

          Many many tenants leave when served s21 , more when court papers served etc etc. Any tidal wave/tsunami may become visible later than now, if at all.

          The latest government figures for possession claims have been published, which cover January through March 2022.
          That's post Covid restrictions and would probably include most of the last of the Covid backlog.

          And there's no sign of the massive wave of evictions and resulting mass...

          Depends on what the agreement you have between you and agent or the terms and conditions they sent you when you started the relationship. Sadly can't read it from here.

          See what it says, if you can't find anything ask agent to provide copy of such terms you agreed to.....and how/where...

          2 questions. I rent my BTL property through a letting agent. The current tenant has handed notice in. Am I right in saying I can now leave this letting agent?

          Second question, the.reason I'm leaving the agent is because a very good friend of mine would like to rent he property. If she wants...

          Thanks for the help everyone. We've made (indirect) contact with the landlord who has been helpful, which is great. The council will be the next port of call if things don't sort themselves out.

          Interestingly, the local university (Alma Mater of the students in question) seems to take...

          I have a question to which I suspect I know the answer, but I'll ask it anyway.

          We live in a house whose garden backs onto other gardens. One of those houses is let to a group of students.

          The students are given to making noise in their garden, particularly...

          Hello good people. I am currently in the process of buying my first BTL house. There is already a tenant, so I don't need to find one.

          Can any anyone point me to a check list of 'must do legally', and also 'highly advised', please? I 've done my research but there's nothing like hearing...

          Is there no one here who is prepared to present a list of a landlord's obligations (and highly advisable actions) upon a new tenancy, based on there own experience?

          As I said I am already buying a house and there is a tenant in situ....

          Fortunately in the Uk (Scotland may be different) any house purchase is "Subject to Contract" which means that at any time you can change your mind. so if you have second thoughts you can back out.
          I would also say that even if you have signed a contract, and before completion, you...
