  • Can I exercise break clause and notice period
    by wildflower
    According to the tenancy agreement, I, as landlord, may terminate the tenancy by serving a break notice on the tenant. This is an assured shorthold tenancy and the break notice period must be at least two months. Am I correct in thinking that this means that I would seek possession under Section 8 rather...

  • Reply to Direct Debit vs Standing Order
    by ChrisDennison
    Ok that’s a fair point for questioning further. Although from the other posts it sounds as if direct debit would actually be better for the tenant, not worse. So I would be more worried if a tenant says ‘I only pay you by direct debit’.



    Well whenever I look at my statements...

  • Direct Debit vs Standing Order
    by danwestgarth
    Has anyone any experience in collecting rent from tenants using Direct Debit opposed to Standing Order? From what i understand, with Direct Debit the payee (landlord) is in control, rather than the payor (tenant). JCould be a good way to minimize missed payments during covid-19. Does anyone know of...

    by jpkeates
    A tenant who doesn't communicate well about arrears wouldn't be unusual.

    In normal times I would suggest serving notice and use MCOL for the arrears.
    But with six month's notice and a huge court backlog, that's less appropriate.
    The risk of the tenant either stopping paying...

    by MP31
    Hi

    I have a tenant who got in arrears in the end of 2019 by 1.5 months because of work then continued to pay full rent until Covid. He couldn't work and was unfortunate to not get furlough or any government scheme other that UC so we arranged a reduced for 4 months. Now he is behind further...

  • Reply to Direct Debit vs Standing Order
    by boletus
    It's just one of many, many things that come up during a natural conversation with a prospective tenant. E.g "How are you paying the rent?"

    DD & SO are often used interchangeably. I've lost count of the amount of times I've explained it. A tenant knowing the difference wouldn't...

    by Perce
    Those who are not paying anything are doing it deliberately or cannot be bothered to make arrangements. Where do they get money to eat, pay bills, pay council tax, pay for mobile phones, pay for petrol like my tenant ? The government provides a lot of support with rent. I have just looked in my area...

    Assuming the tenant really doesn't have any money, suing them for it is unlikely to do any good.

    If you serve notice, the tenant may simply stop paying rent - as they might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, and you've already shown that you intend to evict them.

    I would...
