    tenant hinted at not paying rent

    a tenant hinted last week that he should not have to pay rent on his flat due to his complaints about another tenant and that I should evict the other tenant,
    The other tenant has paid his rent on time answers my telephone calls and is very worried that he is constantly been reported for noise and bad lanuage .No one else is complaining except private house owners who are friends of tenant complaining.i have always found him polite and so has everyone else I have asked
    1 can he withhold rent like this

    2 can other people dictate who I let to

    3 I had a very nasty phone call last week from unknown but I have my ideas stating they would attack my tenant and trash my property.

    4 both are good tenants but the compalining one is dictating all the time who i let my property to it cannot go on.

    Can I serve notice on complaining tenant as I have had enough of no one good enough to live above him.(he is paying less rent than anyone else and has not had a rent rise for 4 years but does nothing but complain and what everything doing.

    1. No.
    2. No.

    Are the tenants sharing a property?
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      Morning,

      Check out the details on section 21 as depending on your contract that might be the quickest way to get rid of moaning tenant.

        So is this a block of flats and these tenants rent separate flats in the same block?

        How is it that 'private house owners' are complaining? Do you mean people who live in adjoining/next door houses or flat owner in the block? What are their complaints?

        I would report that anonymous phone call to the police, just so that there is a record in the event that the situation deteriorates.

          You can serve notice on any tenant you like. If the moaning T has a statutory periodic tenancy you could, alternatively, serve notice to increase the rent.

            We had a tenant recently who was the subject of loads of complaints about noise, wild parties etc from surrounding tenants who were serial moaners. Nicest tenant, very polite, in a very responsible job, didn't seem the party type at all and was most upset that people would even think he would be, even offered for us to come along to the flat anytime to inspect it - which we did, it was immaculate.

            A week later I was driving past on the way home from a late night out, it was 12.45, for no particular reason decided to drive up that road - it was party central in his flat! must have had 50 people in a two bed flat, the noise was ridiculous. He got given notice the next day.

            Always go and check yourself; sometimes the nicest most reasonable tenant in the world can turn into a moron with a couple of beers.
            My advice is not based on formal legal training but experience gained in 20+ years in the letting industry.

                For your sake I hope it is just the tenant playing games because the next tenant will complain too if it’s anything like penetrating damp, poor state of the structure of the walls roof tiles missing etx.

                The tenant should get a report done by a surveyor to prove it really as hard evidence...

                No. And a tenant does not have to agree to or sign any new agreement.

                Hi, My tenant will not move out at the end of the fixed term tenancy. My understanding is that this will automatically become a statutory periodic tenancy. Do I have to provide any documents / agreements for this statutory periodic tenancy or does it carry on using the previous fixed term agreement,...

                Unless your tenancy agreement creates a contractual periodic tenancy, if you're in England a periodic tenancy is created by the Housing Act 1988.

                If the How to Rent booklet has changed since you gave the tenant a copy originally, you should give them the version that was current when the...

                if your agreement said it would become periodic then it is a Contractual Periodic Tenancy; if your tenancy said nothing it will become a statutory periodic tenancy.

                My understanding is the first is a continuation of the original & the second is a 'new' tenancy. A new tenancy needs all...

                If you allow the T to change the locks, make sure they meet your insurance policy requirements, once the T leaves they can replace it with the originals or your get new locks. Get a copy of any keys you will require for access.

                Hey there! Sorry if this was already posted! I had a long debates with my student - tenants, in case they are replacing the locks as they old(as they say) and do not offer the security level the tenants want, who pays for the locks and for the locksmith?

                I feel for anyone with a current tenancy, who will be caught up in a set of rules and contractual terms that they didn't anticipate when they decided to let their property (and which can presumably be challenged on that basis).

                What the regulations do achieve is to make reasonably clear...

                Registered landlords in Wales today received the information I've copied below. The vendetta against private rental is going to be cranked up yet another level with a new Labour / Plaid pact leading to full rent control. Many tenants will lose their homes before July, rents will rocket prior to the...
