    {Mod - company name removed} question please

    Hi all, we have given notice on a lease with {Mod - company name removed} who run the govt. asylum seeker contract, and they have had three months notice which ends this weekend. However, we have not been contacted at all about the handover/giving keys back and when I have chased the company, is is very hard to get hold of anyone. I managed to get the information that the asylum seekers have not been moved out of the house. I feel panicky that the company is just going to try and hold on to the house, even thought we have written proof of the end of the lease. It is a young family in the house so we couldn't just take possession. I would really appreciate anyones views on this, thanks in advance.

    That was always going to happen. Why did you let to them?

      Just for your info, it makes no difference at all that it's a young family in the house...


        When you have evicted your tenant (company) if family still there they probably become your tenants

        What made you want to rent to the company in the 1st place? What did they promise (in writing?) that was so attractive?
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


          What were the T&C's re cancellation of your Contract with your Tenant (Co)?
          Did it provide for 'vacant possession' on termination of Contract?

            What can be done about tenants just leaving the property without notice, nor paying rent before the end of the fixed term AST?

            I'm talking about the rented room on AST in London started September last year. I've got no forwarding address and suspect they left abroad. Can I put it in court?...

            T leaving keys in the property does not end the Tenancy, unless you accept them.

            Hi - I have 3 bed house. I have converted one reception into room where I live and I have rented out 3 bedrooms upstairs (2 double bed and 1 single).

            I'm thinking of doing loft conversion that's mean 4th bedroom. Do I need hmo license if I do loft conversion?

            You need an HMO licence even without the conversion, assuming double occupation of at least one double bedroom. This assumes there is no selective licensing for smaller HMOs.

            You need to obey HMO regulations, even if there are only 4 residents, in total.

            I served a section 21 notice which ended on 2nd June on a tenant. The reason was the tenant had not claimed their housing benefit. They finally got this sorted and I got paid in April then again in May. I went to the house on 22 May, the tenant was just going into the house, the first time I had seen...

            I had a similar problem with a tenant. I had to provide a tenancy agreement with a note written by me explaining that the tenancy was relinquishd early, by mutual agreement. I gave the date that she was responsible for the tenancy for (which was a month later than she said). A couple of months later...

          • 1st time landlord, 'enthusiastic' estate agent, questionable tenants.

            First time landlord that is moving with work and renting out home.

            Perspective tenants, working couple one on maternity, a number of children who are keen for longer tenancy agreement than 6 months due to schools and settling in.

            They have a guarantor,...

            Walk away from them, there’ll be plenty more potential tenants.
            letting agent I engaged agreed to let my flat without giving me all the info on the tenant. It’s been a nightmare of constant late payments, so many lies by agents that are still coming to light, tenants income wasn’t verified,...

            so the picture of an empty room with the keys on the table is good enough as evidence?
            And I'll take it to the court but if they've got a job in Ireland, not in the UK, I'll not get my rent back? And if they do get a job in the UK, automatically they will be made to pay me the rent that they owe?...
