    S8 Fall Back

    Hello all,

    I am awaiting a decesion on a s21 served some weeks ago now, I am not anticipating any issue however if it gets rejected can I then claim posession via the s8, note that

    1 - The contract went periodic on the 10th Feb 07.
    2 - The T has been persistantly late in paying rent since Dec 07, note that she is owes me £1100 in back rent.
    3 - The T is not on HB but is a single mum.
    If so what ground would I need to use and when could I start proceedings, finally does a s8 always get heard in court.

    Thank you

    Rejected? S21 cannot be rejected unless improperly served/wrong dates or whatever.

    Provided all is in order, she must move out ultimately. S8 is second best in your situation.

      Lorenzo, the dates on my s21 are correct, I am perhaps concerned over nothing, I made sure that i followed all guidance notes.

      Simple things like the fact that the s21 was served during an AST and expired during periodic but gave 2 clear months, will the judge pick up on the fact that the contract is now periodic etc, etc all cause me concern.

      Thanks

        For your sake I hope it is just the tenant playing games because the next tenant will complain too if it’s anything like penetrating damp, poor state of the structure of the walls roof tiles missing etx.

        The tenant should get a report done by a surveyor to prove it really as hard evidence...

        No. And a tenant does not have to agree to or sign any new agreement.

        by Neil P
        Hi, My tenant will not move out at the end of the fixed term tenancy. My understanding is that this will automatically become a statutory periodic tenancy. Do I have to provide any documents / agreements for this statutory periodic tenancy or does it carry on using the previous fixed term agreement,...

        Unless your tenancy agreement creates a contractual periodic tenancy, if you're in England a periodic tenancy is created by the Housing Act 1988.

        If the How to Rent booklet has changed since you gave the tenant a copy originally, you should give them the version that was current when the...

        if your agreement said it would become periodic then it is a Contractual Periodic Tenancy; if your tenancy said nothing it will become a statutory periodic tenancy.

        My understanding is the first is a continuation of the original & the second is a 'new' tenancy. A new tenancy needs all...

        If you allow the T to change the locks, make sure they meet your insurance policy requirements, once the T leaves they can replace it with the originals or your get new locks. Get a copy of any keys you will require for access.

        Hey there! Sorry if this was already posted! I had a long debates with my student - tenants, in case they are replacing the locks as they old(as they say) and do not offer the security level the tenants want, who pays for the locks and for the locksmith?

        I feel for anyone with a current tenancy, who will be caught up in a set of rules and contractual terms that they didn't anticipate when they decided to let their property (and which can presumably be challenged on that basis).

        What the regulations do achieve is to make reasonably clear...

        Registered landlords in Wales today received the information I've copied below. The vendetta against private rental is going to be cranked up yet another level with a new Labour / Plaid pact leading to full rent control. Many tenants will lose their homes before July, rents will rocket prior to the...
