In 2015 I rented my property to a family friend who came to me this year explaining about damp and mould. I went to check and my Tenant was telling the truth it was had. It was a reoccurring issue in the property.
Due to personal financial problems I was unable to have all the work done at one time, but did begin to have the issues dealt with.
After some time I realised that realistically the property was going to be a constant financial drain and that selling it may be a better idea.
August 12 of this year I wrote a note to my Tenant asking her and her family to leave the property in 4 weeks so I could commence the repairs that needed doing. As her father (the joint Tenant) is a family friend I handed it to her get it signed and dated and explained that I wished to sell the property after repairing it.
Anyway yesterday the Tenant came to my property posting a letter, upon reading it I found out that she planned to sue me for an illegal eviction notice.
Apparently it has to be done on a section 21 form or section 8, that she planned to sue me for planning to illegally evict her. For breach of contract (the tenancy agreement) which states I must repair all damages to the structure if not caused by the Tenant, for renting a property that I knew had previous Damp problems, for the damages caused to her property as a direct result of the damp within the property, for stress and worry caused as a direct result of me asking them to move in 4 weeks.
She actually put at the bottom of the note that trying to illegally evict someone can actually carry a prison sentence of up to two years.
My Tenant must be kidding right?
Surely she has no case for any of this?
I agree there was a damp and black mould issue, but she repainted with an anti mould additive.
And she was a family friend!
