    section 21 at start of AST

    Hi All

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that a section 21 notice can be issued at the start of an AST. If the tenant turns out to be poor the system is already in place to have the property back, if there ok they can stay on and the section 21 is ignored.

    Has any one heard of this, is it standard practice and how is the section 21 cancelled out.

    Thanks for any response

    Hi All,

    Hope your all well!

    I have recently started to rent a place, before moving in/signing of papers the Estate Agent showed it to us virtually (2nd September) because it was not ready yet for potential tenants to view (the Building was not complete), We instantly liked...

    Not so easy or affordable having to do 10 rooms throughout a property though - and I think the OP is concerned about his handyman skills going wrong and being held accountable.

    HaHa - my wife and I once stayed at a Pontins Hotel on the Isle of Wight - we were allocated a room in a large house on the site, which shared a bathroom.

    My wife ran the bath, came to the room to collect something and found we couldn't get back in to the bathroom as the door was stuck....

    I heard through the agency that manages my property that the tenant had become locked in the bathroom at around 05:30 in the morning and called the fire service, who proceeded to knock down the front door to the flat, and let him out of the bathroom. The tenant did not call the agencies...

    OK it's a niggle. But is it realy worth you stressing about it?

    For the cost of a curtain rail/track (look on Argos, they range from about £10 to about £30) just put up your own rail, which is even better because you can choose which type/style you want.

    Don't bother about...

    So, the door was not replaced at the time the LA (and subsequently you) were informed? So, it could have been cancelled by the LA or you then.

    At which point then does the Housing Association turn up with a front door for your Tenant, who's been without one since approx 5.30am

    In my defence, 3 out of 6 respondents also believe the contents to be somewhat "astonishing" lol.

    AND with credit to the ones who haven't, they're the ones who will give up their time to answer ALL questions if they feel they can share knowledge - no matter how absurd some of...

    They arranged the door replacement after they had got out of the bathroom, and it wasn't replaced until later in the afternoon that day. They have the agents phone number, and internet access on their phone....
