Landlords warned not to discriminate against benefits tenants

Reply to the comment left by Elisabeth Beckett at 14/07/2020 - 10:01
Couldn't agree more Elisabeth. A lot of 'average benefit tenants' collect CCJ's and are proud & boastful of this fact. The court system favors these people . I was able to get CCJ on a guarantor who didn't pay a penny. Eventually, after 2 years of pestering the court, I got an attachment to earnings order. A few payments trickled through until the debtor realised if she changed the way she was paid she fell below the earnings level set where payment can be deducted. Consequently some months I might be lucky and get that £1.00 rather than the £50.00 agreed and ordered .

Selling my rental property to the Local Authority

I have emailed the tenants and fully explained the circumstances. I have said that I would be as flexible as I can on the time scale, and offered to help in any way if I can.

I have effectively given them 4 months notice (and by being flexible if they were able to move sooner it would be OK with me). I felt that by also including the 'formal notice ' (Form 6A) I had maybe covered myself if they didn't move out at the end of 4 months. I welcome any other comments . Thanks for yours Porky. Must admit that a previous long term tenant and family who we had a good relationship with but turned really nasty when the time came for them to move. Finished up costing a lot of money and time , so I'm trying to learn by experience... Read More

Selling my rental property to the Local Authority

I am also seeking to repossess a property although for a different reason - due to coming to the end of the mortgage term. It looks like a new form 6A has replaced a section 21 . This Form 6A is simply giving notice seeking possession. The only details it asks for is details of Landlord & Tenant along with date tenant required to leave i.e more than 2 months from date of serving. Question is am I using the correct form ?...

Breach of Tenancy Agreement or a months rent?

Reply to the comment left by Bernadette Lloyd at 01/07/2020 - 10:57
It's my view that vacant possession is better than the having a tenant that could possibly be troublesome - and very costly to you - in the future .
Good luck as you move onward and upwards.... Read More
