    correct section 21 and checking the property

    Hello, I hope you can help! My tenants AST started on the 16th October for 6 months, so she is still within the fixed term. I am just abot to serve sec 21 notice and because we are still in the fixed term I am serving a 21 1(b). This will take her expiry date to outside of the fixed term. Today is the 23rd Feb and the date of expiry is 28th April. Is this correct?

    Also is it best to go and check the property in approx 1 month and write to the tenants with anything they need to do before the tenancy expires, or should i just leave it till we do the inventory? I just think if I leave it till the inventory then there may be a lot of redecorating needing doing (there will be as did a check last month) due to children and dogs (house was decorated jst before they moved in) and this will delay me being able to move back in as quick as possible.

    Thank you for any help!

    Yes, but T may decide not to allow you to view the premises- and you have no automatic right to enter.

            Hi all,

            I’m a tenant that moved into a new build in London that comes with an embedded (in built) oven, microwave, fridge and wine cooler. After I signed the contract and moved in, I realised that the wine cooler is not working. The letting agent did not inform me about this before I...

            It would be better to get a specialist window fitter or someone recommended by the manufacturer rather than use the 'go to guy'.

            I'm looking into having a new front door, living room and first floor windows fitted to my rental property, and the letting agency "go to guy" really doesn't inspire confidence when I met him today! (On other quotes for different work) He mentioned that the glass needs to be toughened if...

            Yes if the windows are below a certain height, they need to be toughened glass so that someone can't accidentally break it. If they are at standard level then no toughened glass is required. Also windows need to be a certain width in case of fire.

            As the T has stated, there isn't much more you can do, see if they leave in Oct, if not follow up with proceeding to the courts and eventually bailiffs if they have not left.

            Our tenants have broken the tenancy agreement 9 times - painting my kitchen cupboards and chopping down trees. So it’s section 21. My issue is. We allowed 3 dogs and were told they would be housed outside and they intended to build a kennel. This hadn’t happened, instead they seem to be converting...

            Congratulations Perce. I’m so happy to hear this is over. You have been through total hell with this. I remember the support you gave me - and how upbeat and optimistic you were about it all. Yours was 16 months, mine was 21 months. I’ve left the place empty. Cannot bear dealing with it or hearing...

            Hello All

            Update : My tenant has no plans to move out before bailiffs arrive which is imminent. I have no clue what the bailiffs will do. He will start complaining that he has nowhere to go although he lives somewhere else just keeps his stuff in the property for free, he might say...
