    Offer him first refusal on one of the flats?

    Issue a section 21 to expire at the earliest legally allowed date?

      What kind of tenancy are you talking about? Assured Shorthold Tenancy? Lodger? Common-law contract? Something from the dark ages?

        i thought a s21 could only be issued if there are rent arrears?

        ps: i offered him one of the 1 beds, he needs 3 bed though

          No, you use a s8 for rent arrears.

          You can issue a s21 (Notice Requiring Possession) as long as it gives the tenant at least two months' notice, to expire either on the last day of the fixed term or the last day of a rent period if the tenancy has become periodic.

            Andy. A S21 can be issued at any time, it cannot be operable in the first 6 months of the tenancy, it can also only be issued providing the deposit has been properly protected. It's a no fault demand for the return of the property.
            It is not a notice to evict. If the tenants do not move out of their own accord then you need to apply for an eviction order through the court.

              I'm surprised that you are even asking, it's obviously some kind of scam.

              Pb21
              Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

              Following on from my last post, had the tenant not informed the police and landlord at the time, they would have failed in their duty. I therefore would expect the tenant to foot the bill at the end of the tenancy or sooner.

              Criminal damage not connected with the tenant occurred during the tenancy and was reported as such at the time. It is not the case that the tenant caused or was responsible for loss of value beyond wear and tear.

              I'm just stating my view which appears to be backed up from sources other...

              If the tenancy ended and the lock was broken, it would be a loss in value beyond fair wear and tear and I'd expect the tenant to compensate the landlord for it.
              Same as any other damage.

              What's different about it during the tenancy?

              Yes, they have a duty of care but not the same responsibilities as a lease/freeholder.

              If I was the tenant, I'd refuse to pay. This is assuming I hadn't been grossly negligent and had reported the damage at the earliest opportunity to both the police and the landlord. I would expect a TDS...
