    Want Rid of Lodgers

    I have a couple of lodgers and want rid of them ASAP.

    I have given them four weeks notice (which is it whats written in lodgers agreement)

    However, can I legally give them one week?(Or even throw them out tomorrow..legally)

    Thanks

    It depends on the reason. If they have caused damage to the property or yourself, then I guess immediate eviction would be in order. In most cases though, your agreement would stand, so 4 weeks is appropriate.

      Hi

      As with any other type of letting, the first thing to do is to work out what kind of tenancy (or licence) you are dealing with. Try looking at the "Letting Rooms in Your Own Home" leaflet available on the directgov website to start with. Once you have read it through you will then be able to ask some more specific questions if you are still unclear.

      Good luck.

        From Preston's link (thank you)

        Rights of landlord and tenant

        There are two main issues where the rights of landlord and tenant differ for resident landlord lets compared with other types of tenancy - rent and security of tenure.

        Broadly, someone who lets from a resident landlord:

        * does not have a right to challenge the level of rent that he or she has agreed to pay
        * can be given less notice to leave if the landlord wants to end the letting

        Noisy, messy idiots are gone

        Great

          That is less notice than a tenant of a non-resident landlord ( who whould have to go through the s8/s21 process. Your lodgers agreement gave the lodgers additional rights by specifying four weeks notice.

            But did the Lodger Agreement confer on L the power to give less Notice (or none) in case of breach by T?

              The guidance says that preparing a property for rent or sale is work that is allowed to be done in this phase of the lockdown.
              And staying in another property for work is allowed.

              So travelling somewhere to work and staying there overnight is fine.

              Hi all - I'm new to this so apologies if this (or similar) has been dealt with somewhere else!
              I own a property in the south west but currently live in London. I've been renting the property out privately. My last tenant moved out in January 2020 and I was planning to get quite a bit of (much needed)

              Yes, I agree about the acting reasonably and interestingly the legislation seems to allow for this too through the use of the word "include"

              For the purposes of paragraph (1), the circumstances in which a person (“P”) has a reasonable excuse include cases where....

              My tenant lied to me saying he missed the first universal credit payment. But actually according to one of my friend the payment normally only take two weeks to come directly to the bank account. What can I do? Can I find a way to let the universal credit directly make overdue rent payment? I really...

              As a stupid landlord I take grave exception to your slur, Sir!

              Hi. We have been renting a flat for the past decade under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat is one of five in a single block. The back garden contains a large outbuilding comprising ten sheds. Implicitly, then, two sheds per flat. The inventory does contain the wording 'Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings:'...

              Then you need to go the route I said. Unless there is a lease which specifically defines the demise of Flat X that includes the shed(s) there is no reason at all to explicitly exclude anything....
