I have a tenant who has a year lease at £625 per month. He has decided to only pay £500 per month. I always have to chase him to get the other £125. It is always over 2 weeks late.
This time I have been very clear that we are not happy about the late balance and it is creating a black mark against his name for our records. He is now starting to get nasty and making excuses for not paying such as the communal door being stiff!
We are always very quick to deal with things if informed but this being a communal door as with any dripping gutter etc we would need to have quotes and agreement of the other owners, there is also the question of acting as a factor. Yes we are happy to repair the door, but he could in an old property always find something.
Can he legitimately withhold rent here?
Also can I give him notice to quit for being in arrears of part rent?
