Section 21 – really as easy as it sounds?

Section 21 – really as easy as it sounds?

I have a tenant causing a merry host of issues, but I’m now firmly on the legal (if not expensive) route to get it sorted.

The last part of the process will be to get her to tidy up the tip she lives in. Rabbits in cages in the lounge, cats and dogs roaming, commercial pallet waste in the garden etc. I have a feeling the council will kick in and move all the waste for her as I will be using the eviction threat over her (again).

Unfortunately, she has slightly mild learning difficulties, so the council see me as a dumping ground for her and her kids as it is far more costly for them to take her back into their own social hands. After all this is resolved and she is up to date with rent, the house cleared etc, I still want to evict her.

She just has to go as I know the whole situation with arrears will start again and inevitable the house will get trashed. Can I just issue a ‘no fault’ section 21 and if so, does she have a right to contest this?

I just want out of this!

Just heard that minister in Wales is banning section 21.
