    Can i Evict b4 6 months in anyway??

    hi all

    Please can anyone just explain this to me!!

    I have tenants that have been ok for most of their individual 6 month tenancies.

    Recently, they have been argueing and it even got physical with police!

    I have tried to 'mediate' the best i can. (2nd time last night)!

    But i was wondering, ..

    I know i can serve a S21, (giving 2 months notice before end of tenancy). That bit is clear. ..But...

    1) Does it need to be signed by the tenant aswell ? ( i didnt think so)!
    2) Is there no way (other than court eviction order) go get them out before the End of Tenancy ? ( if it came to that)
    3) Can i get them out (even with order) before the end of tenancy at all??

    Im quite friendly with my tenants and know my professional boundries as they do same time...however..was just wondering if it came to this..was it possible to get anyone out before the end of the agreed 6 months in anyway!

    Many thanks for your help everyone, in advance.


    1. No it doesnt, but you may need to prove that the tenant recieved it, so a signature, if you can get one would be great, otherwise look for the thread on this board that talks about sending from 2 different PO's and recieve a reciept.

    2. No

    3. You could go for a section 8. The grounds of which you will need to look at that most suits your situation. To be honest, by the time you are able to serve the notice, take it to court and get a decision, you probably wished you had just served a S21 and weathered the storm.


      The simplest way is to get one of them to agree to move out.

      If you agree not to charge them etc, because they are leaving before the end of the fixed term maybe one of them will be glad to get out of there, and hopefully it's the one with the mouldy food.

        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 limited company system has been abused for too long by people trying to save on tax by claiming they are a company. I know loads of people of set themselves up as limted companies and have now been caught by IR35. They have spoiled it for those of us who have proper companies to rub who used to...

        Agreed. Peoples care should not be down to those who work hard, to take from their labours. The levy is a joke and im disappointed in the conservatives for doing it.

        I thought the main issue of taking a tenant on UC is not so much the fact they are receiving benefits, but the fact that its a pain in the proverbial to evict as the council tell them to sot tight until forced out by bailiffs....

        Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

        I think you need to ask whether he/she is responsible for the things you say, and whether these warrant immediate attention as you think they do:

        a) leaking shower - what do you mean exactly. Leak from where, when...
        b) broken burglar alarm - what is broken? What does your contract...

        Hi just after some advice. I have been renting the property for 4.5 years, 4 of those with a fantastic landlord and 6 months with a new landlord. When he took over he immediately increased the rent by 25%, annoying but perfectly within his rights. The main issue is maintainance and repairs. I cant report...

        It is in the nature of co-ownership that each owner owns the whole and each is therefore entitled to occupy the whole. The sister's right.therefore is not to receive rent but to occupy the property as well. If the sister does not want to share occupation but wants some benefit then, keeping things simple,...
