I have two long-term tenants in one of my HMO’s who obviously have a vendetta against each other. One is a fiftiesh builder, and the other is a younger thirty something. Both single guys. Their rooms have a common wall, through a party wall (I have two HMOs back to back). In the past they have complained a bit about the other one knocking , making a noise, etc etc, but it all seemed to settle down …
They have waited until I was away on a family holiday across the world to have a real go : 50ish started hurling abuse from the front garden up to 30ish. 30ish called the police and 50ish was arrested and an official Police caution given.
Both tenants were inherited with the house, purchased 3 years ago. No sign of any ASTs and no sign of deposits transferred from previous landlord.
So what to do …? We have issued both with about three warning letters etc in the past.which seemed to end the previous shenanigans. Both pay their rent every month, and both seem personable when spoken to…
Section 21 for the guy with the caution..? Section 21 for both…? How do we stand with no paperwork for either…..I presume there is an ongoing month-by-month tenancy so only a months’ notice needs to be given in either case…?
Any advice welcome. I am not going to do anything until next week when I return from overseas anyway
