Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
A local agent was employed to find tenant for my friends property. A tenant was found and they moved in.
Unfortunately my friends husband became very ill and they needed the property back to house a farm manager.
A section 21 was served by the Estate Agent, which the tenants ignored. Court papers were filed and possession was granted.
Tenants put in a counter claim and the judgement was set aside until end of January 2018.
The landlord sadly passed away last week, and the house and court paper work is in his name.
What happens now to the eviction?
Also looking through the paper work it seems the deposit was not protected within 30 days, and on the AST the landlords wife has signed not him.
Please can some help me? I don’t know what to do next.
