  • Arrears, Sharers and New Tenants...

    Hi,

    I was wondering whether someone could help?

    My flat was let out to sharers, who have since moved out and new sharers have moved in. We do not have a contract with the new sharers, and now they are in arrears. They have paid the rent for some time but are now 3 months in arrears so I understand that we have an implied contract... but that is it.

    How do I get them out?

    Thanks!

    Helen

    You will probably need to serve them a 'section 8 notice', with grounds for rent arrears of over 2 months.

      Hi,

      As none of the current tenants are named on the tenancy agreement, there is only an implied contract as they have been paying and we have been providing the accomodation. I think because of this we will have problems serving a section 8.

        You don't have to have a written contract.

        Serve S8 notice in the names of the tenants who are actually in the flat.

        Let that also be a lesson to you about getting names on contracts.

          Bearing this in mind; if the tenants do not have a written agreement, you will need to serve a section 48 notice, as they may not officially have the landlords name and address. Rent is not legally due without it; the judge may want to know that they have been served a section 48 notice for this reason.

            I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

            You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

            My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

            Our potential new landlady has 'approved us in principle' but wants to meet us at the house as the final part in the referencing process. Beside the obvious such as look smart, tidy and professional and warn the kids to behave, any particular tips for making sure this last hurdle goes smoothly?

            Some of the above comments are crazy!. If they have aleady done their referencing and credit checks then they likely just want to meet you.

            As someone said above, they are trusting you with their very valuable asset.

            Hello,

            Tenancy finished a couple of months ago. The landlord withheld part of the deposit for a variety of reasons. As the tenant, I disputed those deductions as incorrect - they contradict the Checkout Report which was completed by an agent of the Landlord but that's besides the point....

            As the tenancy has finished you have no right to his address from agent.

            Have you spent £3 with land registry to get deeds of property & see who is listed as owner & what address?? (Landlord may not be owner... legal, no very uncommon...)
