I have a mid terraced property in London which I have been renting out for several years, the last three to excellent tenants (single family with small child) who keep the property in good order, have never missed a rent payment, and apart from the odd request to carry out a small repair or replace a white item keep themselves very much to them selves.
I have been thinking for some time in having a rear dormer extension carried out to the property, but am in two minds how this should be handled.
Option 1: Serve section 21 towards the end of the tenancy so that the work can be carried out. The risk being having to go through all the legal process, (which I have been through with a previous tenant who was 11 months behind with rent) and potentially loose a very good tenant
Option 2: Have the work carried out with the tenant remaining. Risk being that they could be injured and ends up in lengthy legal and damage costs.
I’d be interested if any other landlord has faced similar dilemma and how they resolved?
Thanks in advance
