    Company let query

    At the end of a 12 month co. let, if the parties wish the tenancy to continue as before, does the landlord need to do anything, or can it just run on (like an ast periodic) ?

    If you do offset the debt from the sales proceeds, the tenant could claim the money back.
    The amount of the debt would be a counterclaim, making the tenant's claim pointless.

    They're much more likely to claim that you undervalued the goods and try and claim for consequential loss...

    Some advice would be useful. One of my properties has a detached garage which is specifically excluded from AST. Someone has been letting this with a formal agreement for about 6 years, and paying rent monthly. Suddenly the rent stopped 4 months ago. I had a peep through the door crack and there seems...

    Lawcruncher - you may be right legally (sure you are) but the letter I send always says the goods will be sold and outstanding debts plus cost of sale deducted. It works....

    There are specialist eviction companies (some of whom advertise on this site in the directory section) as an alternative to solicitors.

    If you don't know what you're doing or are not confident in your knowledge, repossession can be stressful.

    Hi, I’ve been trying to move tenants on from one property, without success, for around four months (two S21 notices because the first, issued by my letting agent, was due to expire between Christmas and new year, and I’m basically soft). The 2 month term of the second s21 expired on 22/2/20. They...

    I did have one of the tenants on my doorstep a few days before Christmas pleading that they just needed a little while longer (waiting to hear back about a couple of places, Christmas gumming things up etc, hence another S21- yes, I’m green!) I did explain my reasons why I want possession of the house...
