Hypothetical scenario prompted by another post earlier on Property118: After issuing a S21/S8 the tenant becomes ‘at risk of homelessness’. The Local Authority then has a duty to assess this person’s need once the person asks for help. Is the tenant obligated to tell the Local Authority though that they are now at risk of eviction?
This might seem a stupid question, but, the legal duty of the LA to assist the tenant is only AFTER the tenant approaches the LA. What if they don’t tell them?
In the scenario, the Landlord has to then pursue this eviction in court because the tenant won’t leave, and the tenant has NOT even bothered to engage with the LA in the first instance, would it not be seen as prejudicial to the Landlord, and moreover a blatant attempt by the tenant NOT to use all avenues to source alternative accommodation?
Anyone any experience of this?
