Tenant's actions have made flat a Health and Safety danger

Jamie, this is a public forum and you are coming across as extremely unprofessional. You clearly do not understand that I have plenty of experience with both section 8's and section 21's.I am fed up of repeating myself and you not taking anything in so I'm leaving it there.

John, take on whichever advice you want. This forum is open to suggestions and the great thing is that you can weigh up the pro's and con's of them all. Good luck! :)... Read More

Just a friendly comment, didn't mean to start a war. I'd keep it professional if I were you. I am also experienced at this. I have been involved with several S8 notices and they have all went swimmingly but like I pointed out people would disagree with me -most probably because of personal experience.... Read More

Yes, I got that bit but forgot to comment, sorry. I don't think social services will even let the child stay in the property in its current state and rightly so. I just don't see the point of giving the tenant money - money that could be used for the repairs. I think it's important to have sympathy for the correct people in situations like these and with all due respect an alcoholic which has smashed up a property that isn't even his isn't one of those people! Some people may disagree with this but Section 8's are quite easy to issue with the correct guidance which is the way I would go as again, with the right evidence (as ground 13 is a discretionary ground) the courts will evict the tenant and hopefully that will be the end of it. If he refuses to leave the police/bailiffs can get involved. I don't think this needs to be said but obviously this is just my opinion and what I think is right for this situation. :)... Read More

I really wouldn't suggest that! If you did go ahead and do that you would be basically giving a £1,000 gift to an alcoholic that has trashed your property. There are several options for what to do in this situation - for example the suggestions above... Read More

I agree with this. Get the property cleaned, then get the PAT tests done. I can't see DPS/TDS/MyDeposits having a problem with this if the tenant for some reasons chooses to dispute this.

Edit: Edited my comment just as Yvette posted hers, glad someone agrees.... Read More
