  • need help quickly pleases

    I would like some help on getting an excluded sub-tenant/ logger out of my home. I will start from the beginning.
    I rent the property that I live in from my mum and dad so I am a tenant my self. The tenancy is in my name only and I had 2 kids living with me at that time, I have been in my home for around 10 years.
    In 1999 I let my boy friend move in with me but 3 year later 1 of my kids moved out dew to family upset. A month or 2 later me and my boyfriend split up but he would not move out as he was not working dew to ill healthy and had no money, so I said he could still live in the house with us as a logger as one of my kids had gone to live with her dad. He rents the back bedroom but shares the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. He was paying me £70 a month. Rent is dew on the 1st of each month. He has singed a written arrangement with me. Have included this at end of letter.
    But now I want him out as his drinking and inappropriate behaviour to the kids and me is getting very bad. I asked him to move out every month sins Dec 04 verbally. I have written letters giving him 1 month to move out 2 times now (1 by recorded delivery) but he refused it, now the lasts letter I gave him in his hand, gave him till the 1st Nov 05. But he is still here. I cannot find a solicitor how will help as I am on income support. He has no intension in moving out and I am having to sleep on the living room floor as my other kid has had to come back to live with me. How do I take him court with out a solicitor? What forms do I need and where do I get them. Some one pleases help.

    This is what is on the written arrangement between me and tenant: please not that this is on A4 paper folded in 2 and also used as a rent book.

    On the back is this:
    This is an agreement between Mr ****** (excluded subtenant)
    And Mrs ******** (landlady/tenant)
    For the letting of the upstairs back bedroom
    Which includes lighting, heating with the use/share of
    kitchen, living rooms and bathroom with the landlady
    and family
    ****house address**** .
    On a monthly bases.
    On the front is:

    This room is let monthly at a rent shown below,
    Which is payable on the 1st of each month and includes
    the use of bathroom, living room, kitchen and garden.
    1-APR-03 £70.00
    1-APR-04 £70.00
    1-APR-05 £70.00

    Address of premises: *****house address***

    Room rented: back bedroom

    Tenants name: Mr********
    His signature under it
    Landlady: Mrs************
    My signature under it.

    The inside is set out like this:
    1/1/05 £70.00 2/1/05 £70.00 00.00 Mrs****
    1/2/05 £70.00 1/2/05 £70.00 00.00 Mrs****
    1/3/05 £70.00 1/3/05 £70.00 00.00 Mrs****
    1/4/05 £70.00 1/4/05 £70.00 00.00 Mrs****
    1/5/05 £70.00 1/5/05 00.00 £70.00 Mrs****
    1/6/05 £70.00 1/6/05 00.00 £140.00 Mrs****

    some one please help me get him out.

    He is a lodger and as such you can now in effect throw him out! Next time he goes out change the locks and place all his belongings on the front door step. If he becomes abusive call the police.

    Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

      I have been told that I would end up in jail for doing that by the c.a.b. and I need to go thought the courts. would have to sore his things if I left them on the road side I would be done for littering and bumping illegal and any damage to his thing and I would have to pay. this is what the police tolled me. so i would have to sore his things and i can not do that as it will cost me £60 a week and thats more than i get a week.
      I need to take him court but were do I get the forms to do that.
      thanks any way

        And again look here this thread maybe useful in determining whether the ex Bf is a lodger or tenant of sorts.

        (Assuming he has nothing to do with the felling of trees that is! )

          And unfortunately, the CAB(for once!) may be right. As it has been brought into question on that thread whether you can in fact just throw out a lodger.

          *EDIT* he is definitely not a lodger. You are not the owner of the property, your parents are. Whether this is by name only or not is irrelevant, it is the name which is important. The guy is a tenant. I will not list the details of how to remove a tenant here, as there are numerous threads on this on the forum.

            Do you buy cheapest brands and then dispose of them when they go wrong as it is pricey to repair?

            Horses for courses.

            I've never been able to get a fridge repaired, they only have one working system and when it breaks it's time for a new fridge, so I buy the cheapest one that fits with a name I've heard of.

            Washing machines can be repaired, so I pay more for one that has...

            This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
            Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
            I served the...

            That would be pointless.

            The tenant would have to sue to get their own money back.
            Apart from the waste of the court and tenant's time, there would be little or no compensation because the tenant would suffer no loss to compensate them for (loss of interest?).
            The only people...

          • Deposit at the end of AST. Also, quiet enjoyment.
            Q1 – Where is the rented property located (England / Wales / Scotland / N Ireland)?

            Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only?

            Q3 – What date did current TA start dd/mm/yy?

            Your right that the penalty claim is the law and it's your right to claim it.

            Unfortunately however you won't receive much sympathy on here,as most of us recognise that most of the breaches have been made by inexperienced landlords and not through any intention to rip you off.

            The legislation has been in place for a decade and has been revisited at least twice (and tweaked each time).
            The deposit schemes have fairly clear guides about what needs to be done and how and when to do it.

            Given the tenant(s) the Prescribed Information is part of the process of...

            It discourages landlords from taking a deposit at all, and instead making it up with higher rent. This discriminates against tenants staying for a long time.

            I think that is what is happening to o/p.

            It's all a lot of nonsense. Tenant could always sue if landlord...

            I buy the cheapest machine I can source. It is usually a Hotpoint or Indesit. And they all come out of the same factory. Some of them last for years. I've just replaced a Hotpoint WD after 11 years with a new Indesit one. I try and avoid the ones with the digital display and too many fancy options as...

            What’s evident from responses in this thread that equal emphasis was given to deposit protected within time frame and T were informed in a prescribed manner, some going as far as getting the T to sign the acknowledgement!
            I am really flabbergasted to read some of these emphasis, surely the point...
