    by Hetty911
    Hi all,

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Would be grateful for advice on the below.

    Have a tenant on a AST which expired in July and has rolled onto a periodic tenancy. Over past 6 months rent has been delayed, partial and on two occasions unpaid. 2 months rent is missing...

    Unless the tenant has dependent children, some, or all with a disability, and some other form of vulnerability for her/him self..... they will be in a crummy emergency accommodation flea pit or a dumpy flat in a place resembling the film set of '' Escape from New York ''. They are deluded.

    A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

    I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

    Thatcher's 1988 housing act makes it clear tenant does not have to leave at end of fixed term

    Ok so it looks like the section 21 notice is invalid as a result of this error. The deposit scheme was not in place at the time of the notice.

    Apparently the deposit has to be returned in full....

    The good thing is they have asked you prior to getting one, so the decision is yours. If you do decide then I would suggest you increase rent to compensate for your loss in the future.

    I wouldn't, but it does depend on what type of dog.
    You should assume your carpets will all need replacing.

    Assuming it's an AST (STA's are Scottish)...
    You don't have to renew the tenancy, just let it become periodic.
    And, you're right, don't renew it.

    To repossess, you'll either have to attend court or pay a solicitor to do so on your behalf.

    If the tenant doesn't owe...
