    tenant using ID for club books

    any help appreciated

    tenant has been using my ID to obtain club books and ordering items in my name

    have obtained experian report showing 10 club books and have handed it over to their fraud dept to sort from that end

    regard the tenancy is there any grounds to serve a section 8 or is there a quicker way to end the tenancy ? or do i serve a section 21 and wait 2 months ?


    Club books?


      Sorry, I had someone try-but-fail to do this. Sympathy.

      Contact these guys if not done so already...

      I'd (sorry to be gloomy..) assume he's maybe done other stuff - Credit card, bank account, mortgage or tried to sell the place. Do you have multiple names/addresses for the property lodged with Land Registry??? Contact LR & do so if not already..

      In your shoes I'd visit plod & report (get crime reference number) fraud etc... I'd probably write T a calm & polite letter enquiring if he has any idea why these accounts have been opened.. (but maybe not advisable,.,... )

      I'd issue S8 & S21 and pursue with all enthusiasm ... Unlikely to get PO with G8 but you just might if he doesn't turn up to defend, especially if there are other breaches - late with rent, noise, whatever..

      Quickest way?? Bribery, but not so it looks like harassment...

      What an a******le....
      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...


        As Artful says, report this to police asap.


          How do you know it was tenant ?

            Mail order catalogues Eric, you know ... Kays, Marshal Wards, Freemans, Littlewoods (other good mail order companies available) I must be showing my age ... as that is what we always used to know them as, back when my mum used to have the Grattan catalogue!

              It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

              I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
              I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
              I do not intend to live at the property
              Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?
              As its...

              I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

              Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

              If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

              That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

              The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
              The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...

              I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

              You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

              I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

              I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...
