    What a lovely start to the year!

    I would second MTG's suggestion to see if your University has any mediation services.

    I would also suggest a very quick house meeting with all the tenants where it is calmly and clearly said that this behaviour is not acceptable.

    If she does assault anyone then do phone the Police. This person may well have issues but until they are prepared to face and deal with them then there is nothing you can do to help.

    She is not ill that I am aware of. Or have any hidden problems.
    We were not all in the same friedship group but seemed to all get along fine at the beggining however true colours came out as the year progressed. A weak reason I know!
    I am pretty sure we have an HMO license, I just am not sure about it being 'displayed'.
    And yes, some of the tenents have already moved in.
    It sounds as if the only way something could be done is if she did actually hit someone?
    Thank you for the help!

    Worry not! It's that usual student thing of moving in one at a time over weeks and weeks!

    *Your property will be a 'home in multiple occupation' and should have a license. If it hasn't, it may give you some negotiating power to get out of the contract.

    I have a year long contract which has started and a couple of tenets have moved in. There are six of us in total. five of us get on fine and have no problems. One girl however is causing problems already. i have heard from those that have moved in that she has threatened to hit two of them already, starts arguments, is very aggressive and generally has anti-social behaviour.

    Do you have any idea why she is behaving like this? Is she ill?

    Was she not originally part of your friendship group - otherwise,how did she come to be part of your joint tenancy?

    This is a bit of a long shot, but as you are all students it might be worth speaking to someone at your Uni Accommodation Office. They often help arbitrate when tenancies 'go wrong'.

    You and the other joint tenants can't evict her. The only way she can be evicted against her will is if the LL takes action to evict ALL of you, because you're joint tenants. And, even if LL wanted to, he can't evict you before the end of the fixed term unless there's a serious breach of the tenancy, such as owing a lot of rent.

    If she does hit someone, would we be able to take action then?
    Yes, you could go to the police. It might also be possible to obtain an injunction prohibiting her from going near to the person she attacked

    And a 3rd option for MTGs question - do you pay your rent to / have a contract with one of the other occupants, or a live-away landlord?
    In england, property has 3 floors, i am not sure about the last question im afraid? i havent been up there yet.

    well we pay rent to a letting agency and have a live away landlord....

    started a topic Aggresive Tenent

    Aggresive Tenent

    I am not actually a landlord, but did not know of anywhere else to post my question. So I hope someone doesn't mind helping!
    I have a year long contract which has started and a couple of tenets have moved in. There are six of us in total. five of us get on fine and have no problems. One girl however is causing problems already. i have heard from those that have moved in that she has threatened to hit two of them already, starts arguments, is very aggressive and generally has anti-social behaviour.
    If her behaviour gets worse and is generally a nightmare, is there anything we can do to get her out of the house? I am pretty sure we would all be united in wanting her out. If she does hit someone, would we be able to take action then?
    I am purely asking so i know what options i have and therefore what method of coping i should take with this girl. If i should lay low, or argue, knowing that i have an ultimatum?
    Thanks

    It is not clear yet what is going to happen with evictions. The ban may be extended till the end of the year. It is becoming almost impossible to evict a tenant. The government will make a decision shortly....

    I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...
