Tenant only missed one month but needs Section 21?

Hi Helen, You are right that 4 months notice must be given, and I'm pretty sure you can serve it now. Have you considered having a conversation with her and suggeting that you will in addition to the S21 also start a Mymoney online claim for the unpaid rent. This would/could effect her credit rating in the future. You could offer to forego all this and not pursue the rent arrears etc if she just voluntarily leaves. ( could save you a lot of stress and money in the long run)... Read More

Empty Dwelling Management Order from Council head of revenues?

Hi, I agree with Ian. Write to them, don't bother phoning as you will never get to speak to the right person. Also you will have no record of your inquiry, plus better to have a written response for you records. There are times when phone calls get a quicker response - But not when it comes to local authorities or when dealing with certain legal matters.... Read More

Tenant claims advised to stay put?

Has the time in hospital caused her to get into arrears ?
The advice she has had could have come from a number of sources i.e The housing dept. of council, good old Shelter (who don't shelter anyone), a friend who knows how the system works.
Either way I would continue with the court action it is after all what the tenant needs to get any sort of help from the local council housing department. What section notice have you given ? i.e 8 or 21 ?... Read More

Concerned about offering tenancy to someone so young?

DSR, you mention deposit and rent in advance from your prospective tenant. But what about income ? affordability ? Be aware that at some point she will shift to benefits, the dreaded UC etc. A lot to think about, a few risks as always. It make you feel good helping a younger person to have a home - we have done it in the past. Once it worked well 13 years of no problems. Another one a problem from day one. (Toss a coin, heads you loose tails you can't win . No delete that.)
Good luck which ever way you go with it.... Read More
