    The tenant has a legal right to know LL's name and an address inEngland or Wales at which notices may be served on the LL. It does not have to be your home address, but it must be somewhere where you can pick up post e.g. a solicitor's or agent's office. As far as I know that address could appear on the s21.

    If your prop is a licensable HMO, your name and (I think) your home address must appear in a public record of HMO landlords for that council.

      So is it best to serve section 21 together with a section 13? As that is the only way to ensure I can get the rent increase?...

      Hi,

      I am a landlord and the current tenancy is coming close to the end of the AST fixed period. I am unsure what the process is when it comes to things like increasing rent and section 21 etc. I am using an agent for tenant find and they do the negotiating with the tenants (and of course...

      I wish to gain a court order for eviction, can that be sought in advance of the approaching Notices end date, or does he need to become a 'hold over' tresspasser before I can apply.
      Apologies that is a typo, if it wasn't for the infernal 'Moderator Approval' system being so pedantic I would have...

      Hi,

      A Lodger (Excluded Occupier) needs to be excluded as his Notice Period has expired (one calendar month), and he refuses to leave

      I understand Police will not get involved to remove him, even though he is tresspassing, understand they view this as Civil not criminal....

      You can charge them any rent that they agree to pay, otherwise, your only option to unilaterally increase the rent is a s13 notice.

      The s13 notice includes an appeals process, so you can't simply "evict" someone by charging a ludicrous rent....

      The flat's lease will likely prohibit lettings of more than a year (or class it as an assignment)

      For a variety of reasons a family member is considering renting out their leasehold flat to a cousin for a long period of time - to provide security they want to grant a very long AST, like 8 years (till kids have left home basically). They both want to do this for security and avoidance of argument...

      But what happens if tenants don't leave (when it was originally agreed they would), can I charge them the higher rent? Because a section 13 would not have been served (given it was agreed they would leave at the end of the fixed term) would I still be allowed to charge them a higher rent?

      Tenants often don't have the tools to manage large foliage or dispose of it. If I could do it without too much effort I probably would or offer to arrange for it to be done & pass on the cost. It is definitely their responsibility.

I replied I didn't know there was a bush/tree at the front of the property and enclosed the inventory photograph of the front showing this. The tenant responded...
