My ex tenants are a married couple with grown up children. They recently moved out of my 3 bed house into a 1 bed bungalow but their grown up sons are now occupying my property (they weren’t there to the best of my knowledge during the tenancy).
They were on a periodic tenancy after an initial 6 month AST. The sons wanted to ‘take on’ the tenancy but I turned them down as they would not meet my criteria as tenants (they are unemployed – amongst other considerations!)). They claim that if they were forced to leave they would be homeless as they have no alternative place to stay.
As things stand, I believe they will try to stay as long as possible and I am unlikely to receive any rent in the meantime. Do they have any rights? How do I get them out quickly? Are my ex tenants financially liable in any way (at present, I am not intending to give them their deposit back as they haven’t given me vacant possession on the agreed date)?
Assuming the sons stay for a period of time longer than the withheld deposit would recompense me for, would I have a case in taking court action against my ex tenants for additional financial loss?
Any advice would be welcome.
