    Debate Material?

    Here is a question on the RLA forum... I think it is highly dodgy but thought it may be an interesting debate on here!

    Posted by Wayne Heger on 14th November 2005:I have a tenant whose tenancy expired on 12.11.05 - 2 weeks ago she went to the neighbourhhod office who advised her to stay put and told me the courts will have to evict her. I have since told her I will go to the courts and appealed to her better nature to move out; she says she will move most of her stuff out(the living room is still rammed with her possessions. She has "agreed" with me that I should still go through the eviction process so the council will re house her. The new tenant moved in 13.11.05. She has signed a exit form and says the remaining furniture etc will be out within the month ( a right mess i know!) So should I
    a) go through the courts to formally evict her
    b) give her a deadline to get the furniture out of my property and renage on our "deal".
    This follows this query:

    Advice On Awkard Tenant Hi
    I currently have a tenant on a shorthold tenancy, she is due to leave this Saturday as its the end of her tenancy and she had told me she didnt want to stay on, then last week i get a call off the local council saying that she is now unemployed and has no where else to go so they have advised her to stay put and i will have to take any legal action to get her out! so basically after sitting down and having a chat with her she has agreed to leave after all on Sat of her own accord. She says she will just tell the council she was evicted and basically wants us to go along with this as she is after a council property. Should i get her to sign any kind of exit form on sat or something similar that basically states she has left of her own accord? Im not sure what the council can say as they say i didnt give her 2 months notice, but they have only advised her to stay put. Any help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
    and......

    Could anyone tell me how to obtain an Exit Form?
    Cant seem to find any info on this site about it.
    Thanks
    I think this is quite dodgy, he has written notification from the tenant that she is going and yet she is wanting him to formally evict her so she can get council assistance! He has even moved a new tenant in when the previous tenant still has belongings in the property!

    Would like to see what other people think!

    If she has moved out without being forced to by court action, she will be considered to be intentionally homeless and the council will not re house her. If she is no longer in the property, where is she? Or have I missed something?

      As a total side question, what is the RLA forum?

        RLA is the Residential Landlords Association! There website can be found at www.rla.org

        As MrShed has said this woman has made herself intentionally homeless so the council will do nothing, which is why she still wants the landlord to evict her... but how can he when she is gone already! ... as to where she is who knows!

                    Next time my tenants give notice I'll try to kick them out three weeks early instead. Makes sense.

                    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. ...

                    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...

                    Yes, they have a demo account where you can play with £75,000 ($100,000)

                    I did put $10k into one copy on April 4th and its now on a profit of $4,915, so nearly 50% in just under 4 months.

                    I guess as Im only playing, I should "invest" all the funds and see how they...

                    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....

                    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...

                    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...

                    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....
