Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I have a family (2 parents & 2 children) renting one of my properties. They are now on a periodic tenancy as the initial tenancy came to an end some months ago.
I received a text from one of the parents asking if it was possible for the other parent to be removed from the tenancy agreement as they have recently been removed from the property by social services and they don’t want to give them any reason for them coming back to the property. They are quite happy to provide me with paperwork from social services to back this up.
As the AST has expired, is it just a case of me serving a Notice to quit, refunding the deposit and then writing up a new AST in the single parent name and taking the deposit, again, in the single parents name?
Or do I need to do anything else to ensure i’m compliant and everyone is treated properly?
Thanks in advance.
