    £5 (to an agreed housing charity) says nobody has been evicted solely on grounds of under S8G14(a) with one neighbour only giving evidence in the last 5 years - nor will be for 12 months hence...

      One whiff and he may forget what he went there for!

        You should get a "High" valuation then....

          Agreed, but there could be more neighbours ready to complain if asked whether they have been disturbed.
          There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

            I was in court with a landlord late last year on a Sec 8 Ground 14.
            Also were in attendance were two police officers, and an officer from the council's ASB unit.
            The tenant had been jailed last summer for harassment, and had picked up where she had left off on her release.

            The tenant is still in the property to this day.
            Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

                The landlord doesn't mind the tenant, she is a nuisance to the neighborhood.
                The officer from the ASB unit had testified that the tenant had been evicted 2 years prior from a council property(and subsequently banned from local authority housing).
                It was the police that wanted her out(off their beat).

                I advised the landlord to let her be, as they(police) have the powers(as evidenced by her imprisonment)to deal with it.

                  Thank you for the advice as always good people.

                  I have left the Police to it this week with their surveillance hoping they can get some form of evidence to bust this guy and issue a S8 notice. I did mention to the police that I can't wait too long as I would like to go and do a landlords check with a witness and see if I can come up with any evidence myself. I have a remortgage valuation soon so pardon the pun but I need to check the property is in order and will get a HIGH value. I will also try and get a statement from the neighbours who heard the disturbance to back up my claims. He's 100% guilty, we just need evidence for the court. My general feeling though is that this guy is a small time dealer/grower as he has made so many schoolboy errors along the way and the electricity meter has'nt been bypassed.

                  You are right in saying that the agents don't do police/criminal checks unless they get authorisation. On this occasion I got good credit reports and a glowing character reference and employer guarantor for the tenant so I had no reason to suspect otherwise. I will just put it down as a learning curve.

                    The police are Not your private eye surveillance investigators, they don't have to give you any evidence at all !

                    Given the T only been living there 4 weeks, what actual Hard evidence do you have yourself !

                      Does anyone know what to do IF the tenant refuses access to myself or a Valuer?

                        You will have to go to court to get an access order, if you have allowed for it in your tenancy agreement.

                        See this very long thread.

                            None so far ! Apart from Neighbours statements, black bin liners on the windows and a huge stench of canabis coming from the property. This tenant isn't even aloud to smoke on the property let alone smoke or grow illegal substances.

                              Landlord Inspections and rights

                              Can a Landlord after giving 24hours notice just enter his rental property without permission? or does the tenant first need to respond to the Inspection notice?

                              - And what if there is no response from the tenant? What is the process and how long to get a court order for access?

                                Ultimately the general answer is no, they can't just come in, unless there is a clear and present danger (gas leak).
