So imagine this scenario you have a tenant that’s been with you for five years. Always paid rent on time, no problems, keeps the place well – the ideal tenant. BUT NOW the tenant’s maintenance payments for their child will end and they will no longer be able to afford the rent.
The rent is already well under market value, and the (now) adult child can’t work because of a health issue – possibly to the extent that the property isn’t suitable for them anymore. The tenant has asked for an S21 to go to the council, but this forces us into a desperate position.
While waiting for s21 to go through, the tenant will be forced to go into arrears, with no guarantee of council housing plus the court costs from eviction. Would like to help but stuck between a rock and a hard place.
What would you do in this situation?
