Divorced Tenants and New Tenancy AgreementsMake Text Bigger
I have a dilema here and I would like your advice.
Property Rented to Tenants (Estate Agency) – March 2012
Tenancy Agreement (TA) – Assured Shorhold – 6 months reverted to periodic
Landlord took over management – March 2013
New TA (same copy just dates change and rent amount) signed by same Tenants (Husband and Wife) as above – March 2013
July 2015 – Tenants divorce (Husband moves out and requests for his name to be removed from TA).
July 2015 – New TA drafted and sent to Wife to sign (Changes has her name only)
July 2015 – Landlord visits Wife to ask about her well being and requests she sign the TA as shes now the only Adult in the property. Wife refused to sign, asks for time to read and requests for changes.
I told her its same TA no changes except for the name and the new dates. She kept the TA and hasn’t signed or returned it to me till today.
She also mentioned she has no job and she is searching for a job. I advised her on what to do (the tenant has been good). But I also told her she might need to start looking for a smaller accommodation due to her income levels.
Paid up rent July 2015, August 2015, Sept 2015.
Missed rent Oct 2015 and hasn’t paid yet.
I have issued a Section 21, as I believe she will struggle in the coming months. Section 21 issued Nov 9th, 2015 (please confirm if this is correct), to take over property 9th Jan 2016.
The last TA signed by Tenants was dated 30 March 2013.
How do I get my property back?
