  • Hotel lettings- can I exclude an aggressive occupier?

    We own a 'hotel' where we rent out units to various people/couples. They are taken in on an adhoc basis with no written agreement.
    One of our 'occupiers' has caused an incident involving a knife, the police etc. With Housing Benefit and additional monies paid to us, he has kept up to date with his rent.
    As the incident affected other 'occupiers' we would like to know the following.

    Can we ask him to leave immediately?

    Do we have to give him any kind of notice?

    Any assistance/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. What is the 'hotel'? Is it a hotel, a hostel, or what else?
    2. Do you live there?
    3. What services to residents do you provide?
    4. For the future, consider written Agreements setting-out rules!

      What if the premises is a HMO?
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        That of itself is irrelevant. Even in an HMO, each occupier may:
        a. have his/her own Tenancy Agreement; or
        b. be part of a multi-person joint and several tenancy (but no more than four people per tenancy, I hope).

              BlueMystery
              I have a tenant who the local council have provided the deposit bond for. He has been nothing but a pain paying his rent and has always been 1 month late or 6 weeks maximum, paying at the end rather than the beginning. He was initially on a 6 months AST, which reverted to one month rollover in the absence...

            • Long Term Tenant - how to protect both LL and Tenant
              Paul4321
              Hi All,

              I'm hoping for a little guidance. I'll almost certainly be following up with some professional advice but hopefully some folks here will have been in a similar situation and can offer some advice. I have done a quick search but not found anything obvious.

              I already...

              A tenancy of more than 3 years to be executed as deed (Law of Property Act 1925).

              A tenancy of less than 7 years - landlord's repairing obligations (Landlord and Tenant Act 1985).

              A tenancy of more than 7 years - registration with the Land Registry.

              I dont see a benefit in Section 8 in this circumstance as the grounds are discretionary not compulsory (is my reading of the situation anyway).

              Its worth issuing it anyway but then proceed down S21 when it expires?

              Yes I cant agree with JK on this one, although I agree its an elegant solution in theory. A few issues with it though:
              - Subletting
              - The previous tenant in effect remains a tenant (in the eyes of the law)
              - Any damage that has been caused up to now should in fact be deducted three...

              I would make a list of the improvements / repairs which are required and get some ball park quotes for the work from trades(wo)men in the area.
              Then I would offer a 6 month rolling tenancy, at a fair rent. I would ask the tenant to quote for a few of the simple jobs, and pay him once completed....

              I can't see the departing tenant agreeing to withdraw their notice and nor should they simply to get their deposit back.

              They are ALL responsible. The tenancy Is ending for all of them and they are jointly responsible for any damage.

              I'm amused by your insistence for a professional...

            • Ending tenancy early / returning advance rent
              purpleangel
              Landlord has served me with S21 to leave property by 10 September. 12 month AST in England. Tenancy has been difficult last few months, major delays in repairs and I am still waiting to be refunded for a locksmith call out a month ago. I paid 12 months rent in advance due to having CCJs.
