  • Reply to Housing First - what are your thoughts?
    by jpkeates
    The characteristics of the people you wish to home would be obvious red flags to most PRS landlords.
    I don't think you would be able to persuade me to risk the value of my property when the option to remove a problem tenant is, essentially, unavailable.

    I have only thought about this...

  • Housing First - what are your thoughts?
    by LandlordLiaisonOfficer
    Hello,

    I work for a homeless charity and I am hoping you don't mind me bending your ear and gaining some landlord insight on a model we are imminently implementing for some of our service users.

    Traditional housing models within the homeless sector require the service user...

    I thought the whole point is that you don’t need to go to court to remove non-tenants? You simply get some burly friends and perform re-entry yourself?

  • Guarantor agreements
    by CHARLIEMAN
    Hi all,

    I am asking a prospective tenant to provide a guarantor and was wondering how the deed should be dated with regards to the term of the tenancy. The tenancy will be a 6 month assured shorthold agreement but I would want the guarantor to continue to act for the duration of the periodic...

  • Reply to Is a Form 6A required?
    by KTC
    How good are you at citing authorities and giving arguments on how your DIY form is "substantially to the same effect" to the prescribed form?

    Just use the form as prescribed.

  • Is a Form 6A required?
    by doorstop
    Hello all

    I've just been looking at a S21 validity checking flowchart from a well known Housing Law blog. It suggests that unless the S21 looks "exactly like the Form 6A", then it is invalid.

    However, the .gov website states that "In England, use form 6a if your...

  • Reply to Guarantor agreements
    by jpkeates
    A problem would probably arise when the "special tenant" served notice and the actual occupants didn't move out.
    When the landlord goes to court to remove the trespassers, there's a reasonable chance that the court would choose to treat the "special tenant" as the sham it ...

    by jpkeates
    Why on earth would you want to not use form 6a?

    Why add a risk that it wouldn't be valid because a judge didn't fancy using your form?
    If the tenancy began before 30 September 2015 some of form 6a isn't relevant, but you would be best advised to use it regardless.

  • Reply to Being forced onto a rolling periodic due to the 6 month notice period
    by jpkeates
    The notice periods changed on the 28th of August.

    Most landlord/tenant legal changes are only reported in specialist websites and buried in broadsheet newspapers.
    I'd keep an eye on the news section of this site, the blog section of nearlylegal.co.uk and landlordlawblog.co.uk (which...
