    Sitting tenants, sit down.

      sitting tenants

      If a tenant is taken on without a lease- just a receipt for cash of initial moving in- not even a rent book, under what legal standing are they? can they become that dreaded thing- sitting tenant? even though they paid no more rent after that one time, refusing to pay, or go, saying "talk to my lawyer".Court date for repossession but no legal agreement to produce.

        Depending on when they moved in, they are NOT sitting tenants but they have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Just not in writing.

          Yes: "sitting tenant" usually means T (whether tenancy is written or oral) who remains resident despite change of L.

                I don't understand, why did the police attend just because the tenant had not paid, and why would they send a superintendant?

                    Issue a section 8 notice for non-payment of rent and also a Section 21 as a back up.

                    Then go to court to regain possession.
