  • Additional Tenant

    Hello,

    I have a question someone has posed me.

    A 21 year old single female is renting a property, and the landlord has moved into the property an additional tenant who is a 40 year old male.

    There are no locks on bedrooms or bathrooms and she is worried because she doesn't feel safe.

    Is there anything she can do ???

    Many Thanks

    Graham

      Did she rent the entire property initially in her own right ? or was she aware that another person (stranger) would be sharing the property at some stage?

        She has previously had other tenants who have always been female, until recently when the first she knew of this new male tenant was him letting himself in with a key to see which room he would be moving into.

          Nothing she can do but move out.

            Thanks for the advice.

            I think she was hoping for another way to deal with it so it looks like moving out is the only option to make her feel safe again.

            Thanks

            • if we haven't signed the renewal are we still liable?

              Our 6 month short term assured tenancy agreement ended on the 2nd August. We are with a reputable agency. We were invited to renew for a further 6 months back in July and were asked to email our confirmation that we wish to renew in writing. This I did. We were sent the renewal tenancy to sign. We have...

              I would say your original AST continues as SPT.
              If now a new verbal AST, you may have a new fixed term and you cannot serve NTQ during fixed term (6 months?).
              Talk to LL directly, rather than LA.
              Why did you agree to a new AST, rather than request rolling over to SPT....

              Hi guys, I know that a tenant can claim a penalty on an unprotected deposit but I just wondered when the 6 year clock starts ticking.

              As memory fades over time, can someone provide a 'sticky' for dates when key elements of LL&T Legislation changed? I believe Apr 2012 predates later deposit timescales.

              Hi,
              Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

              It's worth noting that guidance is under part 4 where tenant obviously is given notice to end of a period and therefore apportionment would not be applicable.

              The reference to the notice to quit ending the tenancy on the notice date does not change the fact that it obviously does however,...

              I think thats exactly what the section I have just quoted confirms.

              And thereafter, if you choose not to accept they are leaving as a result of the section 21 you must insist on a notice to quit or await a court ordering possession (where you will be ordered to apportion anyway)

              A lot of energy has been expended in this debate. It has been suggested a LL has no need to take Court action if T apparently vacates after receiving a s21 but with no Notice. LL cannot safely assume has vacated without Court confirmation, to avoid a T allegation of 'illegal eviction'. Equally I would...

              If someone could copy and paste section 21 (4) a and b (I'm really not technical!), the law seems to recognise that a tenancy CAN end as a result of a section 21 and before a possession hearing.

              21(4)b........the tenancy could be brought to an end by notice to quit given by the landlord...

              Assuming that the money originally paid had been used as a deposit for the single tenant tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days from when the 2012 tenancy started. And... if that was a fixed term tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days for any subseqent renwal and likewise from when it went periodic.
