4 week eviction ban extension and 6 month minimum notice period

Hi all,

We have problem tenant who has alcohol abuse issues, is behind in his rent and really needs help that we cannot offer to him (although I am trying to work with him through the local support structures for both housing need and alcohol abuse). In short, we really need to end the tenancy.

My question is, during the current eviction ban is there anything stopping me from serving him notice to leave? I think he has family and friends locally who would likely take him in if he were not able to find alternative accommodation.

My understanding is that if i ask him to leave and he goes willingly then that is legal. If he refuses, I have no recourse to the courts and have to wait my turn for court proceedings after the ban is lifted.

In short, if I ask him to go, am I breaking the law?

Tax Relief on BTL Mortgage Interest - Will It Last?

Good idea Richard - See below:

Having re read the article i wuld appear Mark is right. It was a couple of think thanks that raised the matter and speculation followed. It hink part of the problem is that my mother reads the Daily Mail and then gets whipped into a frenzy by sensationalist reporting.

Thanks all for your time. I think my mother and sister will sleep more easily now...
