    First and most importantly, whether the tenancy has ended or not, the landlord cannot change the locks. He must obtain a court order to get possession.

    Whether the tenancy has in fact come to an end depends on the nature of the agreement. The only instrument (apart from a new lease) which can actually end a tenancy is a deed which takes effect immediately. Any other instrument can (so long as it complies with section 2 of the Law of Property Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1989) only operate as an agreement to surrender which must be completed by an actual surrender. Until the actual surrender takes place the tenancy continues. The actual surrender can be completed by executing a deed of surrender or by some unequivocal acts by both parties.

      Is this a safety issue?

      If it is, and if they are refusing I would carefully document it and then evict them as soon as possible (after making sure that they are really sure they want to resist).

      If it is not a safety issue - then why bother. Just let them live with broken...

      But if he's refusing the repair being offered out of fear of mess because its not a like for like replacement but technically an improvement, can i insist on that? Not that i'm going to cause an issue as they have been a good tenant for 5 years. What i'm getting at is if they do the repair themselves...

      (c) if there is no relevant gas appliance in any room occupied by the tenant has the landlord displayed in a prominent position in the premises a copy of the gas safety record...

      Simply put in email/writing (keep copy) that you have made the offer to repair, at your expense, point to the clause that says they can't make such repairs and gently remind them not to, asking them to contact you when it would be suitable for your electrician to call, or offer to supervise him &...

    • Is the gov.uk Form 6A still valid?
      My MA contacted me today worried that the Form 6A, downloaded from Gov website late Oct17, may be invalid as he did not provide LL name andwas about to apply for a Possession Order.
      He was worried as he heard some Judges had rejected the Form 6A for lack of LLs name.
      Right or wrong?

      The issue with the form is well know since it came out, and yet MHCLG has never amended it so it must be their view that the issue isn't fetal.

      Nowhere in HA1988 s21 does it state that a notice must include the landlord's address, and the lack of one don't seem to have ever been an issue...
