Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 3 weeks ago 69
I rented 4 bed property, and sublet three rooms, finding sublet tenants from Gumtree, and the contract finished on 20th of January 2016. Actually, the contract was finished on September 2015, but I asked the landlord to stay longer to find a new property.
We agreed to move out 20th of January 2016 by email. But I already moved out 6 months ago. Only sublet tenants stayed the property from July 2015 to 20th of January 2016. Finally, one of sublet tenant has wanted section 21 to get a council property.
There was only my name on the tenancy agreement issued by the real estate agents, but my real estate agents, the landlord, and the landlord’s main plumber knew that I sublet but they have not known that I already moved out 6 month ago.
So I want to ask 3 things,
1. the landlord can sue me regarding his future lose?
2. the landlord confirmed that he will process the section 21 with only my name, not the sublet tenant because there was only my name on the tenacy agreement. But I am not living in the property anymore, already moving out.
If the landlord conducts section 21 with only my name, Will I get any lost or any damage like crime record if I want to get mortgage. The sublet tenant can get council property even if the landlord conducts section 21 only with my name? Anyway, if the landlord conducts section 21 with only my name, what will happen to me?
3. I have find one from Gov.uk website
” Excluded tenancies or licences
You don’t have to go to court to evict your tenants if they have an excluded tenancy or licence, eg they live with you.
You only need to give them ‘reasonable notice’ to quit. Reasonable notice usually means the length of the rental payment period, so if your tenants pay rent weekly you can give them one week’s notice. The notice doesn’t have to be in writing.
You can then change the locks on their rooms, even if they still have belongings in there.”
Can I also do this?
