  • Correct form for possession and can somebody else represent me

    Dear Forum,

    I had a tenant who has not lived in my property for 10 weeks now, room empty no personal belongings, and local enviromental servies checked to confirm on an annual visit, but have informed me that I still need to seek a legal possession.

    I have viewed the sample within the forum, but the one I have downloaded via the Internet is only 2 pages.

    My problem is, that I wish to try and make my application as clear as possible, as I'm likely to be away at the time of any hearing, and also wish to know, can somebody else other than a solicitor (which I cant afford) represent me.

    I wish to seek possession and rental arrears which are in excess of 8 weeks when I served section 8, with no rent or communication from tenant.

    Thank you

    PS need to do form in paper format as qualify for fee remission.

    Postpone your holiday/jaunt or whatever and get the job done in person yourself. OR ask for a hearing date when you will be available. You have to pay court fees.

      Can you tell me why I have to pay Court fees, a Judge also told me this, but I have been informed that I would qualify on my income, as can't make any renting rooms to tenants not paying.

      I know getting fee remission annoyed the Judge at a previous hearing, but assistance is there for those that can't afford it - which is myself.

        Why if tenant is renting a room in your home do you need to go for possession.

        Don't know anything about no fees for hard ups - if so hard up why not apply for legal aid?

          Hes a tenant in a property I own (in massive negative equity), not a lodger, he does not live with me.

          You cant get legal aid, its fee remission, its a civil matter.

          I'm not sure how long I may be aware for as needing to visit ill relative in France, but with Xmas - New Year it could be ages before I can begin renting out an empty room to a tenant who has moved on but legally still has both possession and a responsibilty to pay.

          • if we haven't signed the renewal are we still liable?

            Our 6 month short term assured tenancy agreement ended on the 2nd August. We are with a reputable agency. We were invited to renew for a further 6 months back in July and were asked to email our confirmation that we wish to renew in writing. This I did. We were sent the renewal tenancy to sign. We have...

            I would say your original AST continues as SPT.
            If now a new verbal AST, you may have a new fixed term and you cannot serve NTQ during fixed term (6 months?).
            Talk to LL directly, rather than LA.
            Why did you agree to a new AST, rather than request rolling over to SPT....

            Hi guys, I know that a tenant can claim a penalty on an unprotected deposit but I just wondered when the 6 year clock starts ticking.

            As memory fades over time, can someone provide a 'sticky' for dates when key elements of LL&T Legislation changed? I believe Apr 2012 predates later deposit timescales.

            Hi,
            Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?

            It's worth noting that guidance is under part 4 where tenant obviously is given notice to end of a period and therefore apportionment would not be applicable.

            The reference to the notice to quit ending the tenancy on the notice date does not change the fact that it obviously does however,...

            I think thats exactly what the section I have just quoted confirms.

            And thereafter, if you choose not to accept they are leaving as a result of the section 21 you must insist on a notice to quit or await a court ordering possession (where you will be ordered to apportion anyway)

            A lot of energy has been expended in this debate. It has been suggested a LL has no need to take Court action if T apparently vacates after receiving a s21 but with no Notice. LL cannot safely assume has vacated without Court confirmation, to avoid a T allegation of 'illegal eviction'. Equally I would...

            If someone could copy and paste section 21 (4) a and b (I'm really not technical!), the law seems to recognise that a tenancy CAN end as a result of a section 21 and before a possession hearing.

            21(4)b........the tenancy could be brought to an end by notice to quit given by the landlord...

            Assuming that the money originally paid had been used as a deposit for the single tenant tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days from when the 2012 tenancy started. And... if that was a fixed term tenancy, then 6 years and 30 days for any subseqent renwal and likewise from when it went periodic.
