    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?

      When you answer this question, the members will have suggestions.

        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 offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

              Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

              How many occupants do you have please?

              Hi all.
              I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
              Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

              If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

              I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

              Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

              I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

              by alice123
              I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

              One of the reasons why...

              The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

              This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

              A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

              I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

              this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
