I wonder if somebody could give me some advice? I have a property which is let to an Eastern European couple. My electrician has been round to do his electrical report. He has advised me that the property requires a full rewire but as “there appear to be up to 10 people living in the property” and in view of hygiene issues he can’t do it unless the house is vacated.
Whilst the tenant is not in arrears they are in breach of the AST re people living there. I would prefer to sell the house now if possible.
1. Can I ask them to move out to get the work done and then do I need to let them back in?
2. Can I give them a shorter notice as by having more people living there this would constitute anti-social behaviour and if so do I just let the electrical work wait till I get possession if the electrician doesn’t agree to do the work till they have left?
3. Should I suggest they leave as they are in breach of the AST and I need to get the work done, so they would have to move out for a period in any event and I agree to pay the deposit back which they will not be entitled to?
– Any suggestions on how to play this?
