    Filling N5b but Tenant has seperated from partner

    Hi guys!

    My tenants rented the property from me in aug 2010 as a couple so i put both their names on the tenancy agreement and have renewed the agreement every 6 months. in aug 2011, the tenant advised that she had seperated from her partner, so i only put her name on the agreement from then on.

    I have served a section 21 on the 15/10/2012 which expired 16/12/2012 and now I am filling in the N5B form but got a little stuck. The section 21 was addressed to only the tenant living there.

    Now filling in the N5B form, do i write my aug 2010 tenancy agreement as the first? or aug 2011? also the tenant gave a deposit in the form of a council scheme, so i never received any cash; but how do i write that on the N5B form?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    The first tenancy agreement for this tenancy is the 1st one in the name of the female only. The earlier male/female agreements were a different tenancy.

    I presume the deposit was a kind of guarantee? If so, it doesn't need mentioning on the n5b.

      More importantly, a different "tenant".
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

            The point here is though that the tenant's obligations under the tenancy cannot extend to repairing parts of the property which the landlord is under an obligation to repair.

            Outside the tenancy, anyone, including a tenant, who damages property must meet the cost of repairing the damage....

            Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

            Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

            The limited company system has been abused for too long by people trying to save on tax by claiming they are a company. I know loads of people of set themselves up as limted companies and have now been caught by IR35. They have spoiled it for those of us who have proper companies to rub who used to...

            Agreed. Peoples care should not be down to those who work hard, to take from their labours. The levy is a joke and im disappointed in the conservatives for doing it.

            I thought the main issue of taking a tenant on UC is not so much the fact they are receiving benefits, but the fact that its a pain in the proverbial to evict as the council tell them to sot tight until forced out by bailiffs....

            Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

            I think you need to ask whether he/she is responsible for the things you say, and whether these warrant immediate attention as you think they do:

            a) leaking shower - what do you mean exactly. Leak from where, when...
            b) broken burglar alarm - what is broken? What does your contract...

            Hi just after some advice. I have been renting the property for 4.5 years, 4 of those with a fantastic landlord and 6 months with a new landlord. When he took over he immediately increased the rent by 25%, annoying but perfectly within his rights. The main issue is maintainance and repairs. I cant report...
