  • Evicting a Tenant from a part furnished tenancy

    I Need A Bit Of Advice.

    My Tenant Has Had Her Notice To End The Tenancy Under Section 21. This Expires On 7th September. She Has Not Paid Her Part Of The Rent Since Wc 29.06.05 (hb 75.00pw, Her Part 5.00pw).

    I Have A Wardrobe At The Property, Is It True That After 14 Days Of Non Payment Of Rent I Am Entitled To Enter The Premises, With Or Without Permission To Remove The Belongings If So With Police Presence If Needed.

    I Would Think This Is Completely Untrue But I Was Told Otherwise.

    Please Help.

      Not enough information!

      Until you can give more detail there's not much advice available:

As there appears to be more than one tenant, is the liability joint and several on an AST with the others, or does she have her own AST? Also by any chance do you happen to live at the premises too?

      I Have A Wardrobe At The Property, Is It True That After 14 Days Of Non Payment Of Rent I Am Entitled To Enter The Premises, With Or Without Permission To Remove The Belongings If So With Police Presence If Needed. As the second poster has said, what has a wardrobe to do with it? The title of your post might be revealing in that is mentions part-furnished accommodation - there is no difference between furnished and unfurnished as far as the law is concerned.

      I Would Think This Is Completely Untrue But I Was Told Otherwise. You can't enter into anyone's exclusive accommodation without their permission even if the arrears is substantial.

      Please Help.
      As a postscript to this, Did you serve the correct version of the S.21 Notice and when did you serve it and how (i.e. personally on the tenant, by post etc.) ?
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

        Thanks Paul For The Advice. I Knew You Would Be Able To Confirm What I Thought Was Correct.

        There Is Only One Tenant. What I Meant By Her Part Of The Rent Is That She Pays The Top Up From Housing Benefit.

        Being Unfurnished Or Part Furnished. I Thought There Was No Difference Regarding Legal Side Of Things.

        You Confirmed What I Thought Was Completely Untrue That It Is Ok To Enter The Property Without The Tenant's Permission.

        The Notice Was Served Correctly With The 2 Months Notice And Handed To Her In Person.

        Thanks Again Paul For Your Help.

          Can I just say (and it's nothing to do with your question........sorry) that your method of posting with capital letters for each word makes your post difficult to read.

              yeh think he may have been taking the proverbial out of you :P
              Any posts by myself are my opinion ONLY. They should never be taken as correct or factual without confirmation from a legal professional. All information is given without prejudice or liability.

                Golip
                Hi all

                A former tenant of mine whom moved out without giving 4 weeks notice as per his contract is threatening legal action over a deposit which I did not protect in time and was returned to him in full once the admin error was realised (my farther usually deals with the paperwork)
                ...

                Without wishing to sound rude, you don't sound at all competent to head this off without help.

                I'd recommend you instruct a good solicitor specialising in property to deal with this on your behalf.

                Hello there, I have been renting my property for the last 2 and a half years and have been doing so with a 6 month AST contract. At the end of the current contract (which I renewed last weekend) I wish to take the property back, I stated this to my tenant before the tenant signed the current contract...

                Get a new GSC arranged. A valid GSC is a requirement during any Tenancy..
                T does not have to vacate on expiry of Repo Notice, she could remain your T until legally evicted by Court Bailiffs after a further several weeks/months.
                For ~£50 (tax deductible), is it worth the risk?

                I was wondering if you could advise me on where I stand. I have a property which I have rented out for the last four years to a group and each time one person leaves then the original guys source a new person and just give the incoming deposit back to the outgoing person and I...

                Sloppy LL'ing.

                When did original Tenancy commence with original Ts?
                Who, if anyone, still remains?
                Did you nominate a T to do your job ie return ind deposits, check new Ts for Right to Rent, conduct nec checks on new T?
                Give permission for him to sub-let?

                Sounds like the guy who contacted you was your tenant's lodger, doesn't it? Therefore it's up to tenant whether to return deposit or not. (Sounds like room was left in a bad state.)

                Thanks for the confirmation, so would this be ok to send to the tenant?

                I am thinking of using this template as it seems to be the best one available. I will send that and a letter stating that I will let them end there tenancy...

                I suppose on a positive the fact you returned it BEFORE the tenancy ended is in your favour.

                No win no fee solicitors like straight forward cases.

                One of the first questions they ask are if there are any rent arrears or claims to damages. You may well ward them off with a ...

                The short summary is that the situation you have created is the proverbial dog's breakfast.

                Who is your tenant? The fact that you cannot answer that question means that you are lining yourself up for massive problems.

                You have two basic types of tenancies - where you have every...
