    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.
