Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020
About A week ago 40
Due to personal reasons we’ve had to inform a long term tenant that we need to take possession back of the property. The gentleman is getting on in years and is understandably upset about this. He’s always paid his rent on time and over the years we’ve become quiet good friends, which makes this situation so much harder!
We have tried to discuss helping him find another property to rent in the local area, but he has flat refused? We have just been informed that he’s appointed a solicitor, which has left us wondering why?
Could we be overlooking something here? We have a good letting agency dealing with this for us but just wondered if any of you have come across this situation? If so should we be concerned in anyway?
We take possession this month as the notice was served a few months ago but he’s not having it and wants to fight us in court?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
