My daughter is at university and an agent has just sent an AST to sign with the follow clause;
“In the event of the rent or any part of it being unpaid for more than 14 days after it has become due whether legally demanded or not or if there shall be a breach of any of the obligations on the part of the tenants the provisions for the recovery of possession by the landlord in accordance with Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 as amended under the Housing Act 1996 shall apply, the landlord may re-enter the property or any part of it in the name of the whole and immediately the tenancy shall end without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of the landlord”
Correct me if I am wrong, in which case I will add this to my AST’s, but this is illegal. If it was a lone landlord I might guess he knows no better, but this is the standard AST used by an agent.
Should this be reported, if so to who?
