    Not if England follows the Scottish model, if the landlord satisfies the court (Tribunal in Scotland) that they are genuinely planning to sell (which doesn't look very hard), the court doesn't have any discretion.

    There's a possible sanction if the property doesn't then get sold.
    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).

      If private tenants cannot offload problematic tenants, they are in effect relieving the state of their duty to house people. .It is not about strengthening rights. Rather it a strategy that will allow government to abdicate their duty to the poor and the vulnerable. Two birds with one statute.

        Keep up at the back!

        Link in the next post due to pre-empting bizarre LLZ post moderation.

            That would be enough to make me sell up and quit.

            So there's now EPC C and that.
            I wonder where my "just can't be bothered waiting for the other shoe to drop" threshold is?

              This has always been my fear in the back of my mind, however much they seem to get ..... they want MORE.

              If that came in then i would be out 100%, that is even beyond my EPC C fears.

                small question, but if the possession order says tenant must leave "before" 30/8, can OP not start arranging bailiffs on 30/8?...

                Hello everybody, I received a order for possession (accelerated procedure) it says my tenant should leave my property before 30/8. The tenant already had an opportunity to file a defence and request a hearing but didn’t.

                So my question is, am I plain sailing now? Or could they yet still...

                Oh dear, you do seem to be in a pickle.

                Firstly, are you being selective enough when choosing your tenants or just choosing anyone so as to avoid void periods? Bit concerning that all 5 families are high maintenance, and that tenants are regularly "bolting".

                Well I know this is a UK forum, but it is a popular one. So I thought I'd see if there's any advice here for a small landlord.

                ash72,

                I think you will discover that many benefit recipients are exceptional money managers-after all the blind ,disabled and retired are practised at the art and have years of experience. You seem well-acquainted with this socio-economic group-are you a social researcher or a mere saloon...

                Those T's who claim benefits, were empowered when UC came about, making them responsible for the money the government gave them to use how they wanted, some misused this as they weren't equipped on their responsibilities on paying LL's on time, etc, and spent the money on whatever they wanted to. They...

              • Reply to Council tenants still not able to move out after two months is due
                by jpkeates
                Being practical, the chances of a letting agent serving a valid section 21 notice are quite slim.
                But, on 1st September you can, in theory, apply to a court for a possession order.
                If the section 21 notice is valid, there isn't any defence.

                You're right about the 42 days - but...

                Basically council still have not found them the next house. I'm so desperate and need them go. What can I do please? They are foster family, apparently very volunerable as people may think. But they terribly damaged my house, they have also cancelled UC direct payment. I need them go......

                No they're not entitled to do that.
                They can plead exceptional hardship to have the possession delayed to a maximum of 42 days.
                But they can't ask to have the case "thrown out" or "re-evaluated".

                There are a range of legal remedies theoretically available...
