In North East London, Landlord Steve Moreno has been put in an extremely stressful situation. His problems began after deciding to sell his flat in Lea in order to purchase a property with his girlfriend.
Having informed his tenant, Temi, of his intentions to sell the property, his tenant stopped paying the rent and communications between tenant and landlord, which were previously been good, turned sour.
Without the monthly rent, and with Temi refusing to leave, Steve has had no option, but to go down the costly route to evict him.
Despite a buyer waiting to exchange on the property, Temi is not budging, and without rent money coming in Steve is in danger of not only losing his buyer, but potentially his flat as well.
