    I'm concerned that he's not going to let it go and the situation is becoming a bit intimidating.
    Look! Your landlord has no grounds for asking you for anything and as he did not follow lawful procedure concerning the repossession of the premises he's flying a kite. He won't go to court if he takes some sensible advice from his solicitor as he will lose.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      I don't think your x LL got a case, who to say it's the same washing machine, or some work man used it to wash their clothes. Tell him to go away and give him no money, he should have checked it when you moved out.

      The LL may not have done it the right way, but nothing in the post have suggested anything illegal. LL ask them you move out in 6 weeks, you agreed and surrendered the P. You didn't need to do it, but you did it.
      Unless he suggested he was going to force you to move out.
      Disclaimer: What I say is either right or wrong. It may be advisable to check what I say with a solicitor. If he says I am right then I am right, unless he is wrong in which case I am wrong; but if he says I am wrong then I am wrong, unless he is wrong in which case I am right

        Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

        Sarah's right of...

        Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

        I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

        There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
        That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

        by Mr. Sparkle
        About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

        I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

        I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

        There...

        No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
