Serving Section 21 during fixed term - right or wrong?

"A tenancy agreement is really a framework for worse case scenario" - I agree, but it should also offer security to the Tenant and quiet enjoyment of the property.
I also agree that compensation should be offered but fear that if the Tenant should enter into negotiations regarding this that it will be misconstrued as an acceptance of an offer, and this would also be dependent on other similar property that may be available within the timescale.
From what I understand, the property is not on the open market and I do not know the position that the potential buyer is in. If it is an investment buyer then you would feel that they would jump at the opportunity of having good tenants in situ.... Read More

Court order to release deposit when tenancy has been surrendered?

Hi Anthony,
That's really helpful thank you.

I have no doubt that there would be any question of the money due not being paid by the DPS providing the Court Order refers to it. Together with the letter from the tenants saying clearly that the deposit can be used to cover their rent arrears, a rent statement showing payments received, and a check out report outlining the other costs which are their responsibility to cover. My only concern was getting a Court Order sent to the last known address (i.e. the property address) or the forwarding address provided at the start of the tenancy. My thoughts were that a Judge may rule that this was not acceptable as we are aware that they have already left but perhaps I am overthinking it.

Quick question if you don't mind me asking, what did you mean when you said
"Later, I was able to send to their address because they provided a working email to the deposit company"?... Read More
