Tenant can't pay rent and advised to stay by Housing Association!

Reply to the comment left by Terry Fitzpatrick at 07/01/2019 - 19:25
Many advisers spout the tenant’s RIGHT to stay put, which is nonsense. The tenant has no such right. There is simply the lack of right for the landlord to forceably remove a tenant who BREACHES his tenancy agreement by not adhering to its requirement to leave the property at the appropriate time. The tenant has signed a legally enforceable contract and by staying past the notice date they are in breach. So how can a tenant be making themselves homeless by fulfilling the legal promise they signed freely before they moved in??? They are asking a tenant to put themselves knowingly into a position of getting a CCJ which will restrict their ability to house themselves and their families in the future.

Everyone seems as usual to focus on the wrong end of the problem...
PROBLEM: Not enough landlords accepting HB tenants.
GOVT et al: How can we force landlords to accept them?
QUESTION THEY SHOULD BE ASKING: Why won’t landlords accept HB tenants? How can we resolve the issues & make it a mutually beneficial arrangement?
It’s the old story of the sun & the wind competing to get the mans coat off. The wind (gov) tries to blow it off, but the man (landlord) only holds on tighter to his coat. When it’s the sun’s turn it shines down making the man so warm he no longer needs his coat & takes it off voluntarily. It strikes me that the government could take a lesson here.... Read More

Immediately sell a new build house?
