    at5 form contract to let

    having signed the at5 form with new tenant it has become apparent that the tennant currently in the flat cannot move out . the new tennant now cannot move in how do we stand legally and what should we advise ?

    If you cannot get the old tenant out before the new tenancy is due to start it looks like you will be in breach of contract with the new tenant. If the existing tenant gave notice then he is supposed to leave when the notice expires and if he does not and you suffer loss you can sue, but you cannot get him out without a court order.

      at 5 only

      thanks . we havent actually signed a tennancy agreement yet as there was always an issue as discussed with the new tennant that the move in date was not know so at the moment only an at5 form has been issued

        What's an at5 form anyway? I've only been doing conveyancing and L&T for 30 yrs., but I've never heard of at5!

            Its the Scottish housing law equivalent to the old Section 20 form we used to have to issue confirming the tenant was about to enter into an AST (I know you know that but others on here may be not be as old as we are )
            My advice is not based on formal legal training but experience gained in 20+ years in the letting industry.

              Aha- OP never stated that he/she is in Scotland. Lawcruncher's post #2 may therefore not apply.

                Well this has really taken the biscuit. Almost 7 months ago I served my tenants with 6 months notice. Notice expired end of March and they are still in the house. I arranged a video call to get an update on their situation and well, 4 hours later I am still in shock!

                Hi.
                I need to find a new tenant for my one bedroom flat. As I have a new job and have little time to find tenants etc I have approached an estate agent.
                Does it sound reasonable to you getting charged 9 per cent +vat monthly for the management of the property (which also includes fee...

                so you signed the tenancy and then received the inventory which i take it you have not signed ? I would think they are jointly liable as they ahve not done what they have said and you are unhappy with it. it is not your responsibility , they should make it a nice place which is habitable . last year...

                Hi, I’m a new tenant and was just looking on some perspective.

                I signed for a property via a Lettings agent recently, I was told upon signing the inventory showed some cleaning discrepancies however I don’t mind cleaning so was happy to proceed. I’d had a viewing and was told everywhere...

                not too long ago i had a bath that would not empty , tried the usual sink unblockers to no avail. had to take all the drainage apart and clean it out ... it was old grouting that had blocked it and only physically cleaning it did the job . the op is quite right to inform the landlord and lets hope they...

                My kitchen sink has been blocked for almost 3 weeks.

                The landlord/agent has been dragging his feet getting a plumber out and when someone did come, they confirmed my suspicions that it's something more just needing to pour some unblocker down (this is why I haven't called someone out myself...

                Thanks jpkeates,

                I was't sure at all how already having an existing PO and trying to start a new eviction process would work.
                But suspected that it wouldn't work. or would cause problems.

                Hello All

                I am waiting for an eviction ban to be lifted but as time goes I lose hope that it will happen in the near future or ever. What then are our options to get our property back if the tenant never moves out ? My tenant won’t move out until bailiffs evict him. I have PO based...
