Section 21 - really as easy as it sounds?

Reply to the comment left by Chris Daniel at 07/04/2019 - 17:14
Thank you Chris. In effect the judge did award her the full 42 days, so I think she's barking up the wrong tree as far as submitting an N244 form is concerned. It's very unlikely that a judge would give her a further extension. A request to have her removed by the court bailiffs was submitted on Friday. It has also transpired that someone else is also occupying the flat; a local businessman who, very cheekily, and against the tenancy agreement, is using the flat as his registered business address! What a nightmare!... Read More

Section 21 - really as easy as it sounds?

A judge can give a tenant an extension. I have a tenant who was issued a Section 21 notice. She should have left the premises by December 20th last year. When she failed to leave, I applied to the court for a judgement to have her leave without further delay. The judge awarded her an extension until April 4th. Unfortunately, she's still there, effectively squatting, and has applied to the court with an N244 form to have the original judgement set aside. Hopefully, the judge will see through this, and will not cancel it. The tenant owes me £10,500 in rent and £476 in court costs.... Read More

New Tenant - something not quite right

I let my property in the South-East through an agent. I had a choice of two tenants, a lady who purported to be a company director and a fireman. I chose the former, who then, as well as a deposit, paid six months rent in advance.

The tenancy renewal was due to have taken place in November, and I expected to hear from the agency which deals with the renewals. Having heard nothing by mid December, I contacted the agency who told me that it had become a periodic tenancy, and that I had to deal directly with the tenant. Two months later, and having received a whole plethora of exaggerated complaints from the latter, she's £550.00 in arrears, with a history of a bounced cheque, and the promise of a standing order to tackle the arrears not being honoured after the first payment. I wish I'd chosen the fireman!... Read More
