    girl friend moving in in shared house

    Hello everyone,
    I live in my house with my son, a lodger (very nice) and a tenant (not very nice). The tenant seems to have asked his g'friend to move in. She denies being there all the time, but we all know she is!
    I understand her staying over every so often but not everynights for the past 2 weeks!
    Does she have any rights?
    What can I do?
    (tenant is awkward)
    many thanks
    sophie

    Hi

    Sorry, I'm being a bit slow, but could you explain in a bit more detail the relationship between you, the lodger and the tenant? Who is the landlord? Why is the lodger a lodger and the tenant a tenant? No trick questions, just trying to understand the circumstances a bit better.

      I think this is the same situation as described in 'Tenant from hell - another one'.

        Yes, I think you are right, I didn't realise at first. Still unsure, though, of the circumstances, but probably best left to the other thread?

          Hello Preston and Mind the Gap,
          thanks for replying and willing to help.
          Yes, it is the same tenant that I am talking about in another thread.
          I am the owner of the house and lives with my 3 year old son.
          In the house also lives a young girl who is a lodger
          The tenant is a tenant because we signed a contract before I had moved back into my house.
          And now we may have the girlfriend...!
          surely she has no rights to live with us on a permanent basis?? What is permanent as opposed to temporary visits to the boyfriend?
          many thanks.

            I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

            Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

            House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
            Garden was left in a mess...

            That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

            Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
            Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

            by Beeble
            We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

            by Lawcruncher
            The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

            I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

            Lawcruncher,

            Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...

            Totally agree, the classic - still the best. They sound like a nightmare and i would be looking to get rid as soon as i could whilst we still have S21, removing kitchen cupboards !!! In a 2 bed flat...... why the hell would you remove part of a fitted kitchen, what are you going to do with the space....
