    That's a relief to know. He should be able to find a place by then even if it does come to worst case scenario. I imagine he'll be out by then in any case cos of loft conversion, without the probs with the neighbour. I just wanted clarification that if the worst came to the worst, my partner wouldn't be on the streets in a matter of weeks.

    It would take the LL ages to evict him. If your partner chose to stay put when the LL's notice period ended (which he is legally entitled to do), the LL would have to apply to a court for a Possession Order, which would take at least 4-6 weeks. So even if the LL did serve him notice, he would have about 3-4 months to find somewhere else.

    My point was that in his shoes, I would be out of that place like a whippet from a gate.

It certainly sounds like he wants to keep my partner here until the building works on the loft conversion starts, but it's all v worrying. The guy downstairs is deranged - 5 hours and counting of him talking to himself and moaning today. We are both so on edge right now and the LL visit tomorrow isn't helping at all.
    So move out! I am struggling to understand what is keeping you there.

    Well be grateful you don't own the place... a friend of mine is in exactly the same position as you with a neighbour who is clearly deranged - despite my friend doing absolutely every legal route possible (the guy now has ASBOs coming out of his ears) the problem and harrassment goes on and on and there's not a damned thing she can do about it. She can't move of course, as she'd need to declare the whole problem and no buyer would come near.

    There is no other property. Only this. So it looks like my partner has to start looking for somewhere else, whichever way it goes.

    From #1
    The problems continued until my partner involved environmental health. They wrote the neighbour, and he quietened down for a while.

    Speed reading again Jeffrey?

    OPs partner could ask his LL if he has a more suitable property available to rent, subject to close inspection, of course, then everyone should be satisfied.

    As far as I'm aware, the LL is aware that there have been probs with previous tenants and the neighbour. He had to install soundproofing material in the bedroom, because previous tenants could hear neighbour's radio all through the night.

    In the end, it is believed the neighbour did forced the tenants to move with his behaviour - which is what is likely to happen with my partner.

    LLs are ppl just like everyone else. Who is to know what someone will do. If he really wants the building work done and 'im downstairs tells him that complaints have gone in about him etc then LL may want to evict your OH to secure his permission for building works.

    However if LL arrives and during normal conversation the man downstairs starts banging the ceiling because you're talking too loud then he's shown himself up as being unreasonable and LL may well think that any T that lives there will encounter problems with him.

    Good, but we didn't know that until you told us.

    Sounds dreadful. Why does you partner not just give notice and move as soon as the term is up?

    Sure - it is not his fault and no one should have to put up with this. But if your health is suffering as a result then surely this is a battle that is simply not worth fighting!

    It is a period tenancy. The 6 month fixed term ended in December, so it's rolling month to month. Part of me wonders if its worth contacting the LL before he turns up tomorrow to tell him exactly what has been going on, then at least then my partner has a good chance of defending himself.

    I moved into rented accommodation after returning to full time study and currently rent out all bedrooms in a house I own that had been my main residence.

    As mentioned above reading between the lines the agent may have contacted after yourself and applied some pressure with threat of eviction on behalf of the landlord. This is maybe the reason for the change of attitude.

    Some RGI companies such as direct line (I believe) are not processing...

    Hi I would check your lodger agreement, even if this was a HMO I don't believe she would be entitled to sleep on the sofa. Personally I would class this as unreasonble unless she is ill and cannot climb the stairs but you mention it's a flat.

    Getting the other documents sent to your partners...

    A lodger moved in to a spare room 2 months ago. I was going to be there 3/4 times a week. I live elsewhere. We share utility bills equally. What she didn't mention at the interview was that she is very asthmatic, convalescing from an op, and prone to chest infections. Aged 66, she is now on the very...

    Hi Stew Thanks for taking the time to answer, and all the other replies.

    Yes it is my own place. Council tax paid by me, and all utilities in my name. Other statements go to my partner's place. She is not registered at my address with banks or anything else.

    by rupert206
    Hi all,

    I had a periodic AST with my tenants in a joint name. Recently the tenant has split up with her partner and has requested a new tenancy agreement to be drawn up in a single name.

    Is this necessary or can the existing periodic agreement continue?

    If it is...

    Hi 2Toasty

    So I noticed in your first post you wrote "I was going to be there 3/4 times a week", is this your own house that you bought and previously lived in full time and is the other place you stay a partners house and you have not legal ownership over it? - If this is the...
