    You CAN'T evict a tenant before the end of the FIXED TERM of the AST, in your case 9 months, unless they are failing to pay the rent and you use section 8.

      Does anyone else feel that we are banging our heads against a brick wall with this poster. He seems to ignore everything we tell him. I feel very sorry for his tenant.

        Regrettably ignorant landlords seem to consider student lets a speciality. They never bother to familiarise themselves with the real legal situation and because their customers have more important things to do than bone up on such legislation themselves, these landlords get away with it time and time again. I found that I could smell them a mile off when I was a student, got myself an excellent landlady and didn't have to worry about my accomodation, just my studies and social life. I tended to forget to pay my rent as well sometimes, but it was always there when I received a polite reminder. I really can't see where this student has gone wrong - it wasn't his fault that his loan was delayed and he always kept his landlord in the picture. Some of my big, grown up tenants find themselves in this situation themselves. Provided they let me know we work something out. I rarely feel I have to churn out an S21 notice because a tenant has unexpected problems, not of his making.

        P.P.
        Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

          Susan, I think you are right, this person is taking no notice of the advise they are supposedly after, so they are either just winding everyone up or do not bother to read the replies. I think that they should be more aware of the rules and regs of the letting industry, before ranting on and on and on.............

            Strange twist.

            Just to add a strange twist to the whole thing...

            Im the tenant!!!!
            Im quite glad to see that most people think that my land lord is being unreasonable. He has now said that he is getting his solicitor to issue an "accelerated possession". He says that he needs to "make a point of this" and "teach young people" otherwise "theyll all do it" I think that he is totally unreasonable. Not just with me but with other tenants one time he had a go at some one because they payed thier rent a day early!! and he refuses to give any kind of recipt. And he is generaly very arrogant, and generally thinks that by being a landlord he is doing us a huge favour and he can throw his weight around.

            My question here is Can he really evict me if i am still in my fixed term? I am Not in arrears but i did break a clause (21 days late)

            Ps he didnt use registered post when he served notice.

            Thankyou very much for your opinions as other landlords. and thanks in advance for any advance

              I don't know what other members think, but this poster has really annoyed me. Why not be honest from the beginning. Plus he is still asking questions that we have already answered!! I can see if this is his general attitude why his landlord wants to get rid of him!

                Yes! You've all been wasting your time. Mind you I thought many of the answers were long-winded and not as clear as you might think!

                  I apologise if you think that I was dishonest, I felt that I may not get much sympathy if i posed as a tenant, i was only hoping to gain some insight by gaining from ACTUAL landlords with REAL Experience. Surely you can understand that this is a major issue in my life at the moment, and if your annoyed at a couple of threads on a forum, then imagine being made to move / homeless, for what amounts to little more that someones petty grudge. im sorry if i have annoyed you/wasted your time.

                    Diddums! D'you know what? People like me charge fees for sorting out the lettings industry and you want free advice while acting like a clot! Get a grip man! Tell it as it is and don't pratt about. You haven't a clue as to why these people try and help you, and you don't honestly deserve any help.

                    Next time ask a solicitor and muck him about, and then see the size of his bill!

                      If you had bothered to read previous threads on this forum its easy to see that the regulars here have as much loathing of bad landlords as they do of bad tenants.

                        So your renty was late, but you're up to date now? Let his solicitor go through with his accelerated possession. If you're still in the fixed term he will be laughed out of court.

                          PJ,

                          This is the first time I have actually laughed out loud reading a thread - well done!

                          So far as I am concerned it was a legitimate 'ruse de guerre', and as such extremely enjoyable. But I hope now you realise that not all landlords eat children (or even students), and on ths site give mainly clear unbiased advice.

                          This landlord seems to have a downer on you, but it is his house and for you it's only a place to hang your hat for a few months - if you can safeguard your deposit then do so, and find another place (when I was a student I bought a caravan - cold in winter but fantastic in summer - and CHEAP).

                          If you want to stay though, nothing I have read would give grounds for eviction.

                            Totally agree. If you had searched these forums, as you should have done to try and find your answer, you would have realised that a large amount, and possibily a majority, of threads are about tenants being in some difficulty. And, indeed, the landlords on here will assist in every way possible, as they are the good guys, and detest the bad landlords for giving other landlords a bad name. Bad play.
                            Any posts by myself are my opinion ONLY. They should never be taken as correct or factual without confirmation from a legal professional. All information is given without prejudice or liability.
