New HMO tenant already causing problems?

New HMO tenant already causing problems?

I have an HMO that the new tenant moved in to on the 7th of July and I have had lots of minor complaints about him from other residents.

On Saturday, I was informed that the police attended the house due to a domestic disturbance between him and his girlfriend. I would like to get rid of him asap now as it’s causing issues with the other tenants

Seeing as the contract is for 6 months, and it’s relatively new, what can should I give and what are my options

I would very much appreciate any advice from the experienced LL’s on Property118.

Many thanks

Paul

Terry, no. If you serve the s21 in the first 4 months it is a nullity, completely ineffective.

A landlord cannot use a Section 21 notice if any of the following apply:

It is less than 4 months since the tenancy started.
