    Tenant's deposit- constant excuses

    Wonder if anyone has any advice for me. We have recently took our properties back from a LA. All our tenants have been fine, paying the rent to ourselves and transfering the deposit across to ourselves (we are in scotland). Even the local council have been on the ball regarding the HB. But we have one tenant who has been a pain in the perverbial. They are paid hb direct to themselves. It took us over 2 weeks in dribs and drabs to get the rent. We have been waiting about 3 weeks for the deposit to which we still haven't got. Their AST runs out in August so we are now over the 2 months for a S21. Everytime we try to speak to them the guy is totally cocky and he is really wierd. It is always in a couple of days. If it comes to it and we have had enough of them, what is the best way of getting rid of them?

    Serve s.8 Notice on grounds 10 and 11- waiting time is only two weeks before you can start proceedings.

      Thanks Jeffrey, will look into that. We have a meeting with them tonight at 5pm. If he doesn't come up with the deposit we will serve it on him.

        Good.
        By the way, you could add ground 12 (Breach of non-rent obligation: failure to pay deposit on time).

          Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

          Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

          Sarah's right of...

          I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

          There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
          That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

          About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

          I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

          I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

          There...

          No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
