    Can choose 2 answers in Section 4 N5B?

    Hi,I have problem with section 4 For N5b. It seems a) and b) both match my situation. Can I tick both?

    Situation: My tenancy agreement is a periodic short hold tenancy. The tenancy agreement expired may 2011. I didn't sign a new agreement with the tenant. The tenant continues lives in the property and pay rent. Now I need the house back for myself. I served the tenant section 21 and gave him 2 months notice. The tenant will not move and said he will stay till the court give him an order.

    You don't need to choose an answer, all 3 apply. You delete all of section 5.

    FWIW, tenent is totally within their rights to take this stance - as inconvenient as it may be. He may not even leave if you get a court order, you may need to get bailiffs to enforce it.

    Have you verified that your section 21 notice is correct?

    If not, please answer:
    1) What date did the tenancy begin?
    2) How long was the fixed term - was there an end date?
    3) Was a deposit paid?
    4) If so, when was the deposit protected, and by whom?
    5) When was the section 21 notice served?
    6) Was it served under section 21(1)(b) or 21(4)(a)
    7) Do you have proof of service
    8) What expiry date did you give (exact wording).

      Thank you very much, Sknorkerz. That is very helpful.
      i am not so confident with the other sections. Can you help check if they are correct.
      Section 2. Deleted
      Section 3. Date tenancy signed
      Section 4. Delete the "[first]
      Section 5 & 6. Delete
      Section 7. The date I issued Section 21 (4)(a), Served by HAND, expired date is two months after issued date.
      Section 7B: Delete (a) and (b)
      Section 9. Delete

      The deposit submited to DPS is 2007 when the first 12 months tenancy signed. When we renewed the current 3 years tenancy, I did not update the information to the DPS. But the deposit account is still active. The deposit is still hold by DPS. How can I prove this?

        Click on the 'documents' link (top left) and you will find a completed n5b with answers to compare with your own. That site "Landlordzone" is different to "Landlordzone Forum" so you will need to re-register.

        With regard to the DPS, just provide the certificte from 2007 - it will be fine.

          So is it best to serve section 21 together with a section 13? As that is the only way to ensure I can get the rent increase?...

          Hi,

          I am a landlord and the current tenancy is coming close to the end of the AST fixed period. I am unsure what the process is when it comes to things like increasing rent and section 21 etc. I am using an agent for tenant find and they do the negotiating with the tenants (and of course...

          I wish to gain a court order for eviction, can that be sought in advance of the approaching Notices end date, or does he need to become a 'hold over' tresspasser before I can apply.

          Hi,

          A Lodger (Excluded Occupier) needs to be excluded as his Notice Period has expired (one calendar month), and he refuses to leave

          I understand Police will not get involved to remove him, even though he is tresspassing, understand they view this as Civil not criminal....

          You can charge them any rent that they agree to pay, otherwise, your only option to unilaterally increase the rent is a s13 notice.

          The s13 notice includes an appeals process, so you can't simply "evict" someone by charging a ludicrous rent....

          The flat's lease will likely prohibit lettings of more than a year (or class it as an assignment)

          by meehr
          For a variety of reasons a family member is considering renting out their leasehold flat to a cousin for a long period of time - to provide security they want to grant a very long AST, like 8 years (till kids have left home basically). They both want to do this for security and avoidance of argument...

          But what happens if tenants don't leave (when it was originally agreed they would), can I charge them the higher rent? Because a section 13 would not have been served (given it was agreed they would leave at the end of the fixed term) would I still be allowed to charge them a higher rent?

          Tenants often don't have the tools to manage large foliage or dispose of it. If I could do it without too much effort I probably would or offer to arrange for it to be done & pass on the cost. It is definitely their responsibility.

I replied I didn't know there was a bush/tree at the front of the property and enclosed the inventory photograph of the front showing this. The tenant responded...
