I currently have a couple who have been tenants for the past 3 years, in my 2 bed flat. They have been ideal tenants paying rent on time, the flat is always clean and tidy and there have been no issues with the neighbors. They have had a couple of children whilst in the property.
At the end of March they notified me that they didn’t want to renew the tenancy for another year, as they would be looking for another property (I assumed that they just wanted something bigger with a garden). Their tenancy expired at the end of April, but it was mutually agreed at the time that they would move out at the end of May, which I later confirmed in writing.
The problem started when the tenant refused to let anyone view the property, unless I provide them with an eviction notice. I believe that they want to get a council house quickly if I make them homeless. However I don’t have any grounds that I can legally evict them, which I have notified them of.
They are now threatening not to pay any more rent or to actually move out at the end of May. Claiming that they can’t afford it as his hours have be cut at work.
I may have been understanding of their situation if they straight with me, but being blackmailed this way just puts my back up.
