    Tenant has re entered

    I have a ground floor shop which has been rented out on a 5 year assignment. The tenant has stopped paying the rent since June when i issued a section 25 notice to end the tenancy. i instructed Bailiffs to forfiet the lease 10 days ago by changing the locks. However the tenant has re entered the shop by getting the locks opened. i now have a £750 Bailiff bill and a ex-tenant who has rentered the shop and trading again. I took some legal advice and obtained form N5 from the county court as well as N130. what are my options and chances of taking the case myself to court. please advise me.

    This site is geared to residential letting - business tenancies are a little more complicated and certainly beyond my own expertise.

    It is recommended that you seek the services of a good solicitor specialising in business tenancy law lest someone on here tries a good intentioned ham-fisted advice approach not knowing what they are doing!

        Has he paid the rent on June 15th and then again on July 15th?

        Sounds obvious but have you double checked you have done all the correct paperwork and deposit registration/certificate - triple check it !!

        Personally, going forward I would not liaise with the tenant in any way...

        I'm going to keep this short as its a long story. I have a tenant who signed the new tenancy contract on 15th June and then on 27th June I received about 20-25 messages and pictures the evening saying the flat was unliveable due to pests and that he had only moved in the night before. I went round to...

        Even if you were my opinion would stay the same, i think that given it is a converted house the noise isolation and other issues are not the same as separate purpose built flats, so having one as a rental will have far more of an impact upon the other owners who live there. It really is a one way street...

        Not sure if this is the best section to post in, so please move if it is considered best place elsewhere.

        I have had ownership of a flat, one of just four in a converted house, for many years. There is a simple flat management structure; the four owners are directors and have one share...

        This is not my understanding - perhaps others can clarify. I thought you had to give your usual notice if you were leaving before the end of the LLs notice period....

        Hi All, I have been living in the same house for 7 years and have just been served a form 6A giving 4 months notice to vacate. The owner is returning from overseas and wants to live in the house. Whilst disappointed I get that this is one of the perils of renting but it has raised a few questions. ...

        Yes, there are some who seem to have fairly consistent positive performance over a period of years. I would be skeptical, though. Could be explained by them having holdings in a few companies (e.g. Amazon) which have done very well over that time(?) I would suspect survivorship bias.

        Can...

        I will post here but it may get moved - but at least it gets a bit of exposure to begin with lol

        I've used a platform called etoro for 2 or 3 years to hold shares in some cruise stocks (don't laugh) - mainly because we do 4 or 5 cruises a year and the shareholder benefits can be quite handy....

        I suspect he is a professional scammer, i do not believe anyone can be such a wimp as to be running scared over a few spiders etc, he may be doing this to simply be paid off to leave the tenancy etc. I would engage a solicitor given he will try all he can to get money out of you, offer to end the tenancy...

        Thank you for your thoughts on this. I'll appreciate others' input as well. Incidentally I'm not the seller in this issue.
