  • Ending a Tenancy - Please help

    I am currently renting a 2 bedroom flat. I have a problem tenant on 1 year tenancy agreement.

    I undersatand that I can serve a notice ( not a section 21 ) to ensure the tenant leaves the property even though he still has another 4 months on the tenency as he is in arrears with his rent.

    I cannot contact the tenant and have heard from one of his associates that he may be serving a sentance in prison.

    Please help if anyone knows what notice it is I can serve on him to make him leave.

    Thank you

    I am currently renting a 2 bedroom flat. I have a problem tenant on 1 year tenancy agreement.

    I understand that I can serve notice (not a S.21) to ensure the tenant leaves the property even though he still has another 4 months on the tenency as he is in arrears with his rent. You might be able to serve a S.8 Notice for 2 months or more arrears but not if he's detained at HM's pleasure!

    I cannot contact the tenant and have heard from one of his associates that he may be serving a sentence in prison.If you have reason to believe this then contact the Home Office with his details.

    Please help if anyone knows what notice it is I can serve on him to make him leave. Only an order of the court can "make" him leave.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.
