    Sorry Rose I don't understand what you want advise on?

    LL cannot make you get rid of the cats. If LL doesn't want them in the property he will have to ask you to leave, which in this case will result in the desired outcome for you.

      That is a very good point!

      In fact... it would suggest that opening a cats' rescue centre in the property would expedite the whole process. Just borrow lots of cats from friends for a few nights, treat them well and return them well-fed and all party-ed out, after LL has issued notice.

      Everyones a winner!

        Oh, the endless possiblilties........

        Dear Landlord,

        Please let me know how soon I can vacate. I have several pregnant cats at the moment and I would not want the move to interfer with their due dues. We have many kittens already looking for homes (if you know anyone who would be interested), the cat litter is costing a small fortune and the bin men aren't too keen to remove the amount we have stock piled for disposal.

        Many thanks

          Ha! I love that.

          And you could add a a PS:

          BTW, do you know anything which will get the smell of cat urine out of sh*g-pile carpets? For some reason it is in all the mattresses, too. They really stink. Would Fairy Liquid work, do you think?

          The censor won't let me write the word in full!

            Ha ha, Saying that I pity anyone who has a litter of kittens in the household .....

            Our cat managed to get caught before she was spayed, their more trouble than children. We once had the whole street looking for our little guys after the kids left the back door open. Couldn't find them anywhere!! I was in tears laughing when 5 fuzzy and vibrating kittens made their way out from behind the washing machine when it reached spin cycle!!

              In the opening post you said there was 6 month fixed term AST with both your niece and her now-ex-partner named as joint tenants. Now you are saying there was never a tenancy agreement drawn up.

              With the benefit of hindsight it would have been better if you'd had your niece pay money into...

              Good evening all,

              I wonder if I could get some advice on ending an AST tenancy in England.

              Originally a 6 month AST last Sept between my niece and her partner, I foolishly listed both on the AST as joint tenants and didn't list him as a permitted, there was no deposit paid....

              Guess I've been very lucky this time. My niece has informed her partner that she is ending the tenancy and signing up for a new one in her name only and he is ok with it. She did point out that he will no longer be responsible for any more rent or bills when it's totally in her name.

              There may be something on the NRLA website, but I don't know of a standard template.

              To be honest that clause doesn't seem to help you a lot, it stops you using a s13 notice (I'd wrongly assumed that because it said "may" you'd be able to) but doesn't actually help you with an...

              Tenancy start date May 2020 in England. 6 month initial AST.
              My tenancy agreement says
              “The landlord may increase the rent after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy…..”
              Is there a specific form I should use?...

              Thanks jpkeates, I looked at the form 13 but that’s for if you don’t have anything in your tenancy agreement with regard to a rent increase. Is there a pro forma for a rent increase if there is a condition in your TA?

              If the tenancy is now an SPT, and you want to be ever so formal (and impose the increase without any agreement), search for form 13 (which is called something else on the government's tenancy forms page).

              Otherwise, you just need to get the tenant to agree and start paying the new rent...

              It is quite likely that the 2 additional months might be seen as a deposit, unless the tenancy agreement is very specific about the initial payment being for months 1, 5 and 6.

              If it is a deposit, you won't be able to use a s21 notice without returning it and the deposit will be unlawful...

              Hi All,

              I have recently had new tenants move in.
              the estate agent did the whole thing and put them in.

              The arrangement with rent payments was this. 6 months AST Tennants pay last 3 months rent in advance and then make 3 monthly payments in advance. Ie start of the month....

              BUT to answer your question, yes the 3 months very much look like an unlawful deposit, being for a non-defined period (the last 3 months of a tenancy). If it is for a specific 3 months, its a bit lesss grey but then I'm wondering what you hope to achieve...
