'Try' to carry out a landlord's inspection? Or 'try' to look after a vulnerable tenant without having the powers to do it?... Read More

Emergency Eviction??

If he refuses then he refuses. But in a way, that demonstrates my point. You have very few rights as a landlord and no powers to deal with 'vulnerable' tenants. In some respects, if you still have somebody (DWP) paying the rent then for the time being that's a blessing. If he lets you visit and the property is not trashed but the rent is still being paid would that be a bad outcome? If he refuses entry you can advise the police and social services of that....

OK...so if the DWP are still paying the rent I would be inclined to let the police and social services deal with the criminal behaviour and anti-social behaviour. As landlords we don't have the powers to deal with this; powers are actually being taken away from us.

Did you give 24 hours notice of a landlord's inspection and then carry one out? If not, why not, given that you are concerned about damage to the property?... Read More

OK, that's helpful thanks. 🙂

The reason I ask is that a relative of mine rented a property out to a tenant who she subsequently had to go to court to get rid of when he wouldn't pay. The problem she had was not that she didn't have the confidence to go to court, but that once faced with eviction the tenant started lying about events. My relative only won in court because she was able to produce the evidence of what had actually happened and demonstrate that the tenant was lying.

People lie...tenants in difficulty lie. So knowing what documentation you need to cover yourself from an allegation that some big hairy bloke with gold teeth and tattoes turned up to offer you cash and "persuade" you to leave, even if it didn't actually happen, is important in a situation where the odds are stacked in favour of the tenant; because that's what the law does, it stacks the odds in favour of the tenant. Unless you know what process to follow and you follow it.... Read More
