Non-payment of rent question

    The simple answer is - I don't know why my tenant isn't paying the rent. She has, so far, sent me 11 excuses as to why she can't pay, her auntie has died, she lent money to friends, etc, etc. I am meeting with her tomorrow to get to the bottom of it all and simply want possession and would waive the outstanding rent, just to get her out, so will try and persuade her to sign an Option to Determine type letter.


      You may be better with a deed of surrender.

        The form needs to be signed by a solicitor (or notary) who’s checked your identity. But that’s it, from memory.

        Does anyone have experience with DPS stat declaration? When returning the statutory declaration from to DPS is it just literally the form I am returning? Or, do I also send additional information at that time too? Many thanks...

        Many thanks for taking the time to respond. I will follow your advice, let the tenancy become periodic and then serve a S13 notice with the rental increase. I will - out of politeness - give them notice beforehand so that the S13 does not come as a surprise.

        Now that it looks like that S21 will be abolished, can anyone hazard a guess what will happen to S21 notices that were issued before the abolition but have not yet been completed?

        I have tenants who are 12 months through a 24-month contract. I would like to serve a S21...

        How will the tenants fight tooth and nail against a rent increase? Either the tenancy agreement says how and when the rent can be increased in the tenancy agreement or once the tenancy becomes periodic you can use a Section 13 notice. The former the tenants have already agreed to so there's nothing...

        Thank you for your responses, a bit of explanation. I bought the house with the tenants in situ and it was part of the agreement on purchase that they get a 24-month contract. They are paying well below the market rate for the area. I want to put the rent up at the end of the 24-month period. But this...
