    Served s.21 Notice but Tenant is off to prison.

    Have issued my tenant with sect 21. Have since learned he is off to court next week and could go to prison for six months. I will of course issue court proceedings to evict but what if he's in the nick ? Does the process continue in his absence or will the courts have some kind of record on computer that he can't attend as he's in prison and postpone proceedings ? All help appreciated.

    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!

    Here's the...

    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...
