  • Licence

    I provide supported accommodation through a SP contract and thus have licensess not tenants. One is refusing to pay rent and so has been given 28 days notice in the presribed form. What do I do if he refuses to leave at then end of the notice period? He works full-time and is ineligible for Housing Benefit

    What is a "SP" contract. I only know this in connection with horse racing, and I haven't had much return on that either!

    If it's supposed to be "statutory periodic" then you ain't got licencees me old fruit, but tenants.
    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.

      SP is Supporting People, a housing strategy to support vulnerable groups in preparing for independent living.

        Hi, hope you can offer some insight, we are looking to move rental property due to new job starting in September in a new location.
        So thankfully we've a window to shop around to find a new place.
        We've found one suitable spot but we're still looking around, the new place has asked for credit...

        Not meaning to bang the same drum over and over - but I repeat that you dont have to submit your current landlord as a reference, you have another reference.

        This isnt the rental system - no one is ever obligated to give anyone a reference, regardless of the source or cause.

        I suspect it's just the agent who does not want to lose client or commission by there being even one day void. Personally, I am always flexible about tenant moving dates.

        It will be rather ironic if you can't move on notice day, and they then have to explain to new tenant that he can't...

      • Advice please - tenant potentially challenging Section 21
        newlandlord17
        I was an unexpected landlord when I inherited a property recently. Originally I thought I wanted to carry on but then the tenant was nagging about small repairs and when my contractor went in he said the house was very messy, there was a smell of cat urine and a lampshade and door had been damaged....

        A tenant once reported me to the council because the property runs on LPG and LPG is more expensive than normal gas.- obviously the property was already on LPG when she moved in and there is no gas in this rural area! The council came out and inspected and were very nice to everyone but as you can imagine...

        We rented our property last year, and had a tenant that didn't pay rent for the last 6 months of his tenancy.
        He cited health issues, but was clearly seen with a new car, and waltzing around dumping furniture that he didn't need

        We had to use a Section 21 eviction notice to get him...

        Ha ha I do! However to be honest I love the thought that he has to struggle to pay the £100 a month or so every month - I am sure he thinks of me fondly as he sends off the payment! He has paid off about half of it now though - I waited 2 years and got nothing so sent it to the High Court for £60.There...

        Would need to expire after end fixed term.

        Have S3 & s48 notices been served prior to s21?

        Are you confident s21 was valid? Told by solicitor Tuesday that 70% of landlords s21s are invalid....

        thanks, but it's exactly this sort of thing we wish to avoid, bad faith and stress :-(
        is the rental system really set up like this? to prevent tenants from looking and shopping and moving with ease?
        I guess we've rented the same spot so long we figured we could move when chose not be subject...

        I wouldn't sweat it. Worse comes to worse, you can stay on at the end of your notice. Landlord would still have to go to court to get rid of you.
