    Once the S21 notice expires you will need to go to Court and obtain a Possession Order.

    Sorry to but in on this thread but I am in similar position with S21 issued to tenants in April with expiry on 30 June.
    Tenants are pushing for council house but I suspect the council will require the tenants to be evicted.

    How long roughly will this possesion order take? As I have sold the house STC and need the tenants out to complete.

    Many Thanks

    You can't change the locks. That's called illegal eviction and you could be fined heavily.

    The non-payment of rent has nothing to do with the utilities. If you pay the bills and try what you suggest, that is harrassment, which you can also be fined for.

    You can evict them without a reason with a Section 21. The court won't ask for a reason.

    Explain to your tenants that the council are unlikely to house them if they have rent arrears, as this is seen as making themselves intentionally homeless.

    Try to work with the tenants on this. You may not agree with what they are doing, but get into a conflict and you could end up several 1,000's worse off, with very little chance of recovering the money.

    I Want To Evict My Tenant

    We rent our house to tenants on a 12 month fixed term Shorthold Assured Tenancy Agreement which was due to expire on the 30 June. We issued the HA 21 (Assured Shorthold Tenancy : Notice Requiring Possession : Fixed Term Tenancy subject to the Housing Act 1988 Section 21(1)(b) form to them in April as required giving them the 2 months notice.

    They are now trying to get a council house but the council have said they can only get one if they are evicted. We said we didn't feel that we could do that as at the time (last month) we didn't have the grounds to do so. Their last months rent was due today 1 June and they haven't paid it and are now refusing to pay it and said they will not leave on the 30 June.

    Do you have any idea what I can do next? I don't know a great deal about tenancy laws and hoped you could advise.

    We feel they are trying to blackmail us into issuing an eviction notice. Do you know if we are within our rights to enter after the 30 June and change the locks? Or can we contact the utility companies to ask them to cut off the supply?

    Thanks for your help.

    Not to put a damper on things, but insurance is for accidents / unforseen occurences / trees falling on building / cars.- etc

    Insurance does not cover for deliberate acts which caused a fault.
    Thats why why drill round holes in bricks, put a plug in it then screw though the plug.

    I have noticed that one of the 3 blocks has some studs hammered into the brickwork in one corner. There are also cracks running down the bricks. I am guessing that these studs are markers made by an engineer at some point, suggesting a structural issue maybe.
    In the event that any further opening...

    Within the service charge there is of course a charge for Insurance. Presume if any work ever needs doing it would come from that Insurance policy? And then possibly an increase in future Insurance cost

    Hi there,

    I moved into a property 2-3 months ago which was subletted to me by a girl named on the main tenancy contract of the property. I handed over a deposit (which is currently unprotected) and have paid rent on time. She today decided to give me notice to leave, giving me only 2 weeks...

    Indeed. And my worry for the tenants here is that this technically means their tenancy could have continued for an effective additional two months (unable to give a valid NtQ until the beginning of the next tenancy period and that notice having to be a full tenancy period)

    Is anyone aware of anything giving tenants some leeway if they have to isolate and it takes them beyond of their fixed term?

    It would only be an insurance issue if the freeholder has an adequate policy covering it. The best thing is for the freeholder or managing agent to instruct an engineer who will put movement detectors on the property and see if there is any movement. It could be historical.
