    Unofficial Tenant

    I let my flat to a girl who only stayed about 3 weeks, in the meantime though her boyfriend moved in has never paid any rent and does not have any sort of agreement with me. He is refusing to leave. Does any one know whether he has any rights at all? All electric and water supplies run from my business premises below, is it in order for me to cut these off?
    Any advice would be most welcome.

    Suggest you read this thread, exactly the same question.

    With regards utilities, I wouldn't - could be construed as harrassment.

      Thanks Mr Shed for your reply, have looked at the thread you suggested, u nfortunately no one seemed to have the answers there either.
      He can't be classed as a tenant as he has never paid anything,and he has no agreement so he is actually trespassing as he is there without my permission. Does that make him a squatter?
      All help appreciated but I might have to contact a legal expert on this one.
      Thanks again

        I think it may depend upon the circumstances of the end of her tenancy. Did she return vacant possession of the property to you? Did she give you the keys? What were the circumstances?

          Hi Mr Shed. yes she did return her keys, but he has got a key so I can only presume he stayed with her when she was in the property and got a key cut.
          Have been advised that he is actually a squatter and that I need a possession order. Do you or anyone else know any more info on that process?
          Is it difficult or lengthy?
          Thanks once again for help received.

            In my opinion, if she returned possession of the property to you(which it is clear she did), he is a squatter. As for the procedure, I have no idea I'm afraid. I believe it is "fairly" quick however.

              As your tenant has submitted her keys back to you she has given up the property. From my understanding this boyfriend is tresspassing and you should call the police and have him removed.

                I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

                We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

                My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

                What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

                Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

                I humbly note...

                The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

                The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

                I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...
