    Section 21 eviction


    I have a tenancy which started on 15th january 2009 and renewed it for another 2 months in january 2010 I served a section 21 in april for eviction in august which was correctly served as this has already been confirmed.

    I am now filling out the court papers for N5B claim for possession of property but have a problem. It says I need to provide a copy of the first agreement and I can only find the deposit protection certificate and the original section s21 but no tenancy agreement. I do however have the new agreement signed in january for the 2 months.

    Can I still use the N5B accelerated procedure without the original agreement?

    Without the original agreement, you will not be able to use the accelerated procedure. The claim will be allocated a court date, which will add 2-4 weeks onto the process.


      Thanks for that info Snorkerz.

      Do I still use the N5B form or is there another one to use now instead?? and if I can use the N5B form do I need to explain in he additional information section that the original agreement is missing?

        I made two separate requests (one direct and one through a referencing company) for a landlord / agent reference for the same tenant at the same address.

        I got two replies two days apart.

        The first said they had always paid within 7 days of the payment date and that there had...

        The underlay is the key.
        At home I use cheap carpet (because of pets) over good underlay.

        I've done some searching and I see people asserting that the typical lifetime of a carpet is between 5 and 7 years. My question is, has this been established in court or is it just general knowledge?...

        Let’s be honest, most tenants don’t look after carpets as well as a homeowner. There is no point putting a quality in a rental when you can’t be sure how it will be looked after - a burn or a coffee / wine stain will ruin a decent carpet as well as a cheap one. I go for a bleach cleanable, mid...

        There was nothing about a default in the post I was responding to.
        The post said that there had been a hearing, so if there was a default, it would have to be some kind of procedural issue.
        If you don't turn up to defend a claim, there has to have been some kind of error in notification...

        Most of my carpets in my own home (good quality) are 15+ years old and still, with care, look perfect.

        Asking carpet people how often you need to replace your carpet is like asking a damp proofing installer whether you need damp proofing....

        With respect, the editing has changed the nature of my posts and title and it is not entirely clear to a reader what has and has not been edited. I am not happy with the posts or title as edited being attributed to me. I think the response a couple of posts up demonstrates that the edits have made it...
