    Reciver runing a BTL

    Bit of a long story, but, last year managed to get into arrears with our rental property, after some time TMB instruct a receiver to managed the property, all was ok (not an ideal situation to be in) as the tenant was paying the rent, our payments came down as the mortgage dropped of its fixed rate and we were trying to catch up with the arrears. Now suddenly the receiver has issued a section 21 (to a long term paying tenant?!?) to return the property back to TMB with vacant possession. When I spoke to TMB they had no knowledge of the receiver doing this and wouldn’t until they get the house back vacant then they would take action to reposes the property, with the tenant in place this makes paying the arrears a lot easier when we don’t have to find the mortgage as well.

    Now my question is can the receiver do this?

    Surely it’s in everyone’s interest to keep a long term tenant, TMB get the mortgage paid plus were are reducing the arrears and the tenant stays happy where they are. They claim they are acting as the landlord’s agent, but we would never want to evict a paying tenant that is covering the mortgage.

    These third party asset agents have the job to manage a property with the tenants in until such a time their fixed term comes close to an end and then serve notice to return the property to the Lender with vacant possession. Its not normally a long term solution.


      The receiver can do as he has done. Although he is deemed to act as your agent that does not mean he has to follow your instructions.

      You need to discuss the situation with TMB and persuade them to restrain the receiver.


        thanks, have done TMB are being helpful the other 3 I have with them haven’t had a payment missed and having a payment plan has helped.

        However I have had a look at the tenants section 21 and having been on the receiving end of Shelters wrath I now know what wrongly dated and addressed section 21 looks like and this has a number of mistakes, I don’t want to aggravate TMB but if the receiver pushes I am looking at this as the last resort. Obviously my priority is to get rid of the arrears asap and take control back of the property.

          Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

          How many occupants do you have please?

          Hi all.
          I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
          Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

          If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

          I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

          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....

          I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

          One of the reasons why...

          The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

          This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

          A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

          I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

          this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
