    EPC Checks

    Hi,
    Our current EPC has expired a couple of months ago. I have appointed an engineer from a company for these checks. The tenant is not allowing for these checks and not responding to our calls/emails. I want to serve the notice as ur tenant is not paying rent.

    Can I server notice without EPC? If not, What are my options?

    P.S: We don't have a gas connection only electricity.

    Yeah, as long as you served one originally, I believe you are in the clear.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

      Look up "intentionally homeless".

      What sort of notice were you planning on serving? Google "nearly legal section 21" and check all your paperwork.
      I want to serve "accelerated section 21". Would like to have possession of the property.

          As long as a valid EPC was given to the tenant before or as they moved in, it doesn't matter that it's expired when you serve notice under section 21.
          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).

            Google "Nearly legal section 21" to check if you would be able to serve a valid form 6a.

              There is more than just the EPC, you need to review all your documents that you had to provide at the beginning of the tenancy, before you serve the S21 notice.

                We have one or two inexperienced landlords here who are always wiping their tenants' bums.

                Find a self-reliant minority in your area (here it's Romanians) and try to get their friends to take your properties as they fall vacant. I rarely hear from my tenants.

                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.

                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".

                Next,...

                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.

              • 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......
