    We are currently having a problem with a group of 6 tenants on a joint AST whereby 4 of them are unhappy with the behaviour of 1 (the 6th tenant has remained silent on the matter). The accusations revolve around late night partying, drug taking and supplying/dealing and the disgruntled group of 4 want...

    Unless the tenants have specifically asked you to deal with the parents then it is actually illegal for you to do so. If they do authorise it (and I'd require that in writing) you can tell them what you'd tell the tenants.You need proof of the drug taking/ supplying to ask the police to take action...

    AndrewDod,

    Whilst your concerns may be real for some, in this case they are six 20/21 year olds who approached us as a group of friends wanting to rent a house for their third year of study. They are hardly adolescent children who didn't know each other. Whilst I have some sympathy for...

    The bottom line of all of this is that the whole legal structure of student tenancies in the UK is a disaster and a disgrace. The idea that 6 adolescent children end up getting trapped in an expensive irreversible arrangement with others they may never have encountered before via a joint tenancy is...

    The license does not say anything specific about drugs. The taking and/or supplying of drugs is a legal matter & in my opinion should be dealt with as such. I doubt that the local authority can insist that landlords take matters into their own hands.

    Thanks to everyone for your good...

    I dont think that attempting to mediate or referring elsewhere would cut it. And what does the licence say on drugs? Many have a zero tollerance approach....

    Point out that a section 8 notice ends the tenancy and, if you were successful their child would be homeless and all of the tenants would be liable for the legal costs.
    That's seems a remarkably stupid suggestion.

    There's no way that the actions as described by one tenant is sufficient...

    I've had parents wanting to get involved before. Just remind them (unless they are guarantors..) that your tenants are the kids, not them, but thank them for their kind contribution....

    Having procedures in place really means that you must have designed and documented them before the problem arose, which would probably also mean that those procedures were reflected in the tenancy agreement.
