    Evicted tenant is moving in with another of my tenants

    Hi,

    I'm wondering if someone can shed some light on this. I went through an eviction process to get one of my tenants out of a property on a Section 21(4)A. He was in arrears and had dogs in the property that ruined it and were a nuisance to the neighbours. As he kept saying the dogs had gone and I knew he wouldn't pay off the arrears (even if a court ordered him to), I didn't serve him with a Section 8 for nuisance or arrears. Regardless, there was a court order for him to be out by next week but he has gone on his own accord.

    The trouble is, he has moved in with another of my tenants as they are now a couple. My problem is that he lies about not having dogs and will get rid of them and then bring them back after a couple of weeks (despite it being a breach of his tenancy agreement). I do not want him living in any of my properties due to the above issues.

    What rights do I have to get him out and how would I need to go about it?

    Thanks in advance!

    You need to evict the tenant he is living with: When that eviction happens everyone else living in the place gets evicted also..

    So, issue those S21s & S8's right now!!!

    At least you know where he is so you can pursue him for the £££ he owes you...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      you can evict them both, assuming her fixed term is up. You cant evict just him, if he is not a tenant

          Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

          How many occupants do you have please?

          Hi all.
          I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
          Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

          If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

          I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

          Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

          I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

          I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

          One of the reasons why...

          The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

          This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

          A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

          I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

          this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
