    Notice under s.21 expired but T paid further rent- effect?

    Hello I wondered if anyone could help me

    A friend of mine has been served a section 21 notice as the Landlord wants the property back. This expires on Sunday, 31st August, my friend has not found anywhere else for her and her children to live, and the local council will not help her as she works part time.

    There are no outstanding arrears.

    She intends to stay at the property until it goes to court, she had a standard AST but if she stays does she pay rent? Do they have to issue her with a Mesne Profit receipt?

    If they accept her rent without this receipt, does she not by law, get a further six month tenancy by default as they are accepting it?

    We are trying hard to find a loop hole so she can stay at the property until a suitable home is found, and your help is most appreciated.

    The tenancy will not end until the expiry of a possession order granted by the court. Therefore, she will remain a tenant until then.

    She will still need to pay rent, and this will not create any additional rights for her.

    Even if everything proceeds smoothly so far as the LL is concerned, the possession and eviction process could take several months.

    If she hopes to put off the evil day for as long as she possibly can, then the best she can hope for is a defect in the form or service of the s.21 notice and/or the LL's failure to protect her deposit (if any) as any of these "problems" could cause the LL's possession proceedings to fail, and he may even have to serve a fresh s.21 notice. Please post up further details of:

    (1) whether her tenancy is fixed term or periodic,

    (2) the date of commencement,

    (3) the duration of the tenancy,

    (4) whether her deposit has been protected and whether all prescribed information has been served on her,

    (5) the date on which the s.21 notice was served.

        It is not the cat owners, but the cats that are the issue.
        A responsible owner cannot stop a cat causing damage, other than by getting rid of the cat.


        No. It comes down to money.

        A cat needs to get outside.
        How is that achieved?

        Hi all,

        Moved into this rental property last July.
        Tenancy states no pets without landlords written permission.

        A couple of months after I contacted Landlord about getting a kitten, he responded saying he would get back to me and never did.

        I'm a good tenant,...

        We don't know that this is a weekly periodic tenancy. It might be -- but the fact that T happens to be paying weekly could simply be because that is what they happen to be doing. The contract might specify otherwise (and the fact that the initial contract was for 12 MONTHS suggests that was the case)....

        I do intend on making contact of course but I want to hear it from someone else in case they try to pull a fast one.

        We live in a rented house, we've been there many years.
        The rent is paid weekly via a standing order setup by myself.

        Hello, my situation is as follows: I have had an agency as a corporate tenant for several years, but this tenancy ended prematurely as they could no longer afford to pay the rent. The agency seems to be effectively bankrupt now; I have recently learned that they did not protect their tenants deposits....

        by RedSkyAtNight
        I have a T on 6 month AST from 2014 with no subsequent written agreements issued, now on statutory periodic. If I increase rent would that create a new tenancy, an force me to comply with new legislation?

        Thanks
