    OK- but even that paperwork does not create a new letting, so the SPT is operative.

    thanks for your quick response - the rolling agreement was by tacit agreement between us - no paperwork until I put all his arrears in writing plus a plan by which he could repay the two months arrears over the next 12 months by upping the rent by £75 per month - this was beginig of May. He agreed verbally but has only paid £60 in total since towards last months rent. he has agreed verbally that he is in total arrears of 11 weeks.

    Snorkerz - thank you for your reccomendations and for the link to teh legal form. i will start sorting this out as i will need to serve before saturday if I want him out after two months.

    Serve a s8 undre grounds 8, 10 & 11. At the same time, serve a s21(4)(a).

    You can commence proceedings for s8 g8 after 14 days - £100

    In the unlikely event this fails, your s21 notice period should be up so you can then start possession proceedings under that.

    For s8g8 to be successful, on a monthly tenancy the tenant has to have not paid the equivalent of 2 months rent. This has to apply at time of service and at time of court hearing.

    For a s21 to be successful, any deposit needs to be protected before the s21 is served and the documents must be 100% correct regarding dates etc. If the property is a licensable HMO, then you must have a HMO license.

    To serve documents, post 2 copies first class from different post offices. Get a free certificate of posting. The court will accept this as served 2 working days later.

    'Agreed' how? By:
    a. the original Letting Agreement's provisions; or
    b. a further supplemental Letting Agreement; or
    c. both parties' tacit knowledge that a contractual fixed-term AST is continued in effect by a statutory periodic tenancy?

    Rolling tenancy - seeking eviction

    Hi - new to this site and to posting threads so hope this works well.

    I have a tenant that started with an agreed 12 mth tenancy but this has now expired by 6 mths, and it was agreed to carry on as a rolling monthly tenancy instead. Now having problems with rent arrears - 3 months and counting, and I also wish to reclaim the house for my own possesion. Reading the advice given i am confused as to whether I serve a section 8 - rent arrears or section 21- repossesion. Can you advise if I could do both or not - if both which needs to be first? Also have you any advise as to notifying him that I am inclined to go for attachement of earnings for the arrears. can this be done by the courts only?

    Really? I've been using it for a long time, ever since the EA tenant find service got me the tenant from hell. You do need to check them out throughly though and if you have a bad gut feeling about them choose someone else. The chance to do some digging in the guise of a friendly conversation when they...

    I have advertised there and it mainly seems to be people who Estate Agents want nothing to do with , unsuitable people trying their luck , dishonest people and people deliberately being fraudulent .
    Its the place where scammers go to find naïve new landlords .

    Auction houses will set their reserve lower. I don't know if you need to declare to auction houses potential problems. You could always put in with an estate agents and then declare the problem. May be someone desperate to get on the housing ladder will put up with the problem.

    You will...

    During the last year or so, the mental health has deteriorated of the neighbour to my rental property. Two tenants have moved out due to the noise made by this person. After the first tenant moved out last year, I tried to sell the property, but the buyer withdrew when they heard that my neighbour was...

    I think she probably does.There has been a change in the law since I stopped doing conveyancing. My understanding is that today you must disclose anything likely to affect a buyer's decision to proceed. However, I have no practical experience of how the law works in detail and that is why I suggested...

    It doesn't matter where the money comes from its about income & affordability. Some benefits eg state pension give a guaranteed income, so this is really good source of income - you can't get sacked from your retirement!

    The party not in power always makes bold and often hollow claims like this as they want the sound bite/headline and don't need to give any thought to unintended consequences or actually doing as they say. If the RRB (Renters Reform Bill) and EPC changes and more tax increases were all too severe it...

    Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

    The current prevailing form of capitalism, where the inequality between the few super rich people and everyone else is vast and growing is worse than the type of capitalism I grew up with.

    For the record, I don't think socialism is a viable way to run anything - but there's got to be a...
