    Tenant awaiting council housing - must I maintain property until then?

    Hi All,

    As above if my tenant is not paying rent and won't move out until the council re-house them, am I still obliged to repair the boiler, fix any issues they now raise (tap dripping)?

    I don't want them to have any defence from eviction (S21 or S8) will I be deemed to be a nuisance Landlord by the courts or seen as being "heavy handed!" ?

    Thanks
    Smithie

    As a landlord you have obligations to the tenant and just bacause the T is not keeping to their obligations in paying the rent this does not mean that you should not carry out essential repairs.

    Two wrongs dont make a right and all that!
