  • Notice of application and court attendance

    My current tenant on an AST which ended in July, has been stalling leaving the property and is no longer paying rent. She had a 42 day extension to the notice to vacate and now has applied to court to defer the bailiffs visit. I will have to go to court next week - does anyone know what I can expect, and whether the advice I have received, that she will only be able to stay one more month at most, is correct? She is very determined to stay and is causing no end of anxiety here. Advice welcome.

    A recent thread on here stated that 42 days was the maximum in total that could be given. I'll see if I can find it.

      Did you apply for repossession using s21 or s8?
      Any deposit taken?

      If Court did not consider payment order for overdue rent, I would consider initiating MCOL claim for rent arrears before T is moved out (service address). Otherwise could take several months to locate Ts new address.

        True, but you'll still need tenants new address for enforcement.

        • Claiming for protected deposit
          mandm
          This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
          Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
          I served the...

          OP - yes do send the confirmation email from the DPS to the solicitor for the tenants. That should stop proceedings but did you give them the PI and How to Rent details + gas certificate. In future make tenants sign a receipt to say they received these items - I do it on move in day and leave them...

          JK - there are *some* upsides of taking a deposit. The main two for me:
          1) Regardless of what it can feel like on here, the majority of tenants do not know they can play the system in this way.
          2) There is something to be said for the mindset of a tenant who has something "invested"...

          I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

          I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

          The ICO should be fining landlords for not registering as data processors - they're not.

          The maximum amount of personal data held by landlords and agents arises out of tenant referencing, and, if that were to be destroyed after a couple of months, most landlords would arguably be pretty...

          I'm afraid this rant won't help you much o/p, but:

          STILL!? Still landlords are giving tenants a way to wheedle thousands out of them for no good reason?

          I have come to the conclusion this whole deposit protection nonsense is a government sponsored scam. There is barely any...

          They are probably claiming that you didn't protect the deposit and give them the Prescribed Information document, both of which you are required to do within 30 days of receipt of the deposit.

          If you didn't do both things to the appropriate deadline, you didn't protect the deposit correctly....

          That being said, I don't think it will have much impact on landlords:



          I don't think that'll be the case. References are legitimate and widespread.

          Hiya

          i need some advise on my situation in regards to this flat offered to me and my partner. We viewed a flat which was in an old office block which had been converted into service apartments and then refurbished into flats.

          The agency we viewed the flats through did not want...

          You do not have to own a place to be the Landlord. Suspect they rent from owner (their Landlord), they then rent (as your Landlord) to you.

          Doubt there's any chance of getting proper tenancy from them. You could sign licence, move in, then try and get rights as an AST Tenant (eg sue for...
