    Please help - threatened with eviction


    Problem solved - landlord agreed to defer payment until after student financing is received. If it's not received by x date, legal proceedings will ensue. Many thanks for all the replies.

    you say you can't pay but when does the funding arrive? Once it does hopefully you can pay Oct and Jan. If you can't you shouldn't have signed the agreement in the first place and you will presumably have a very unhappy guarantor....

      Ground 8 would probably be applicable if taken to court as its not a full year ie 10 months and payable over 3 periods. Legislation simply cannot cover every aspect of possibilities of rent collection but it is roughly every 3 months. In any event they will probably serve both on you.

      Sounds to me like a student that has pissed away their student loan down the SU bar to me!! I honestly cannot see what you expect to be able to do, you cannot pay the outstanding amount and unless you leave you will just be chalking up more costs against you...
      [I]The opinions I give are simply my opinions and interpretations of what I have learnt, in numerous years as a property professional, I would not rely upon them without consulting with a paid advisor and providing them with all the relevant facts[I]



        I believe that instead of researching how and when you could be evicted your priority should be to explain your situation to your LL and to try to pay your arrears as soon as possible.
        So, have you contacted them? Are you in a position to make a payment, even partial, to show goodwill? What about your student funding?

            by Handy21
            Hi guys this might have already been covered before but I’m currently purchasing a 3 bed house and near completion our solicitor has managed to find out they don’t have building regs for the 3rd bedroom (loft conversion). My question is can I let this as a 3 bedroom or is it legally only a 2 bedroom,...

            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...

            by jpkeates
            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....
