Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020
About 2 weeks ago 82
We have a property rented to the Local Diocese of Church of England on a Company Letting Agreement for 2 years. The agreement has ended, but the permitted Occupiers refused to leave the property on the basis of the current coronavirus outbreak.
We have reluctantly agreed to extend the property occupation twice with 2 months and then 1 month to show understanding of the difficulties in the present rental market for the occupiers (Curate & Wife). The extension of the Rent Contract is based on Statutory Periodic Tenancy.
The conditions of the property have deteriorated rapidly and there has been a complete lack of maintenance. Last month rent has not been paid and our mails to C of E go unanswered.
Where do we stand legally to recover the costs of repairs and rent areas?
How can we recover possession of the property?
Any advice will be highly appreciated.
