Sectioned tenant ripped out pipes and now wants to come back?

Thank you to everyone for your comments.

I have done most of what you've suggested, I've served a Section 21 and I've contacted the local authority and the Tenant's carer to try and find their view on things.

I will be asking for them to take responsibility for him and the other tenant's if they insist he is allowed back in but that will never be given.

The law, I'm sure, will require that I let him back in. I was just hopeful that someone knew a loophole that protected me rather than the tenant. Foolish I know! ;-)... Read More

Tenant died but adult son lives in flat and not paying rent?

I promised I would let everyone know the outcome of this scenario.

Well, Southend Council and Social Services stepped in and decided to pay the full rent (£635 per month) for the 21 year old Son up to a maximum period of 1 year.

It seems that, if you are prepared to be reasonable and work with the local council/services, things can work out for all concerned 🙂

Cheers, Stephen... Read More

Terry,

When it comes to being professional you are far from it.

I'm self made, I retired at 49 and I got there because of a strong belief in Karma.

You need to crawl back to where you came from.

Hi John,

Yes, that's my fear. The Son, his Mother and the Social Worker seem very appreciative so hopefully things will work out best for everyone in the end.

I'll post the outcome when it happens.

Cheers,
