Needless to say the relationship has now turned pretty sour and he is refusing to leave. We need to gain access to the property and get him out before the end of April 07. We sent him a letter giving him notice to be out by 1st March 07. This letter was hand delivered on the 1st Nov 06 and mentions that under section 8 and section 21 we will start proceedings under the housing act 1996. What do I need to do to start the ball rolling?
    It doesn't look likely you will get possession before end April, unless you sweet-talk him; perhaps offer him an alternative.

    Please confirm :
    date he moved in.
    Also what rent he pays
    That you intended it to be a landlord/tenant relationship, or just you were doing them a favour because they had knowhere else to go.
    Is he in rent arrears?

    You could simply say to them that from XXXX date the property will not be let as is has been sold....... that is all you say, no mention of the buyers being the in-situ tenants.

    Hi, hoping you good people may be able to give me some advice 🙂

    i have a rental property that I am now looking to sell. I am interested in selling to my tenants and have been looking at my contract with my letting agents to see if there are any consequences of this.

    Thanks for both your replies.

    It was fully managed.

    yes I do plan to speak to agent. My concern is they will try and use it as leverage to insert themselves in the sale process. Just wondered if anyone else has hit anything similar?

    The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

    With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

    Almost anything beats working for a living.

    Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.


    Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

    Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
