      If you get them to sign a tenancy agreement, you will have to accept that they can not be evicted (except for real breaches) until a couple of months after that agreement ends - even if you do serve a s21. An s21 issued before a new agreement was signed would be invalid. You can not force the tenants to sign a new tenancy agreement - the oral one they have already gives them a good degree of protection - they may not want to sign anything.

        Josephine1, try and get them to sign the tenany agreement, at this stage I wouldn't get the section 21's flying just yet, see how they get on.

        Arrange to meet them with tenancy and standing order form in hand.


          Thanks I'll go down there on Tuesday with tenancy agreement & standing order form.

            Your best bet is to obtain proper legal advice before you blunder blindly any further on.

              Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

              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.

              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?

              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.


              s8 not an issue

              s21 see
