I am not convinced that it is a vague statement and the fact that many landlords assume the worst is a measure of the paranoia generated by the unrelenting onslaught from all sides in recent years. The clear thrust of the whole of that section is to assure tenants that it will be made as difficult as possible for tenancies to be ended by the landlord.... Read More

Extract from reports of the case to clarify the issue: "The tenancy was an AST granted 20 Feb 2017 of a self-contained flat in a domestic property. Hot water and heating were provided by a boiler outside the flat.
