    Try and look at this with a positive angle, at least they have left the house allowing you to re-let it when you can. They are not sat in situ and refusing to pay rent which would be far worse.

    I was always told by another landlord there is no point chasing people that leave and don't pay...

    I have 2 student lodgers, I am not at the property at the moment and their rent day recently passed and neither paid rent. When I enquired it transpires they have both vacated the property and are refusing to pay any further rent, their tenancy does not officially end until July. I have a 1 month deposit...

    It sounds to me that you are financially over-extended, if you do not have the money in the bank to cover such eventualities. I suggest you sell up, and readjust your expectation of what life owes you.

    I am confused by your response, are you suggesting that demanding another 4 months rent as per our agreement is the wrong thing to do? Why is it wrong if this was our agreement?
    EDIT: This was in reply to Hamilton who deleted his reply....

    I was living there, but I have returned to the family home due to coronavirus. The house is now unoccupied, its alright for them to deny their responsibilities but I have a mortgage and without such a luxury. It is so unfair.

  • Reply to COVID-19: Court hearing section 8 vacated
    by Stew
    Given that not much can be done court wise re eviction this tenant's issues clearly had nothing to do with Covid could the landlord at least raise a money claims via the online service?

    Assuming that the tenant does not have a valid concern with you as a landlord and the eviction would...

    I don't know if you have a legally binding agreement or not.

    If they signed a contract saying they would stay there for a period, they may be in breach of that contract.
    However, you would be entitled to compensation for any loss, which seems to be nil, it's very unlikely that the...

    But where do I stand legally? Whatever the current crisis, we still have a legally binding agreement, no?
