The nightmare scenario caused by the gas safety certificate scandal, and not ever being able to serve a section 21 if it was not given to the tenant at the outset of the tenancy, is already here people and it’s gonna come for a lot of older tenancies. I’m already in this position!
Landlord Action have refused to serve a section 21, because I don’t have an original gas certificate even though the tenant moved Pre 2015 in 2008. I Served a section 8, but they defended it with spurious claims of both harassment and disrepair. Neither of which are true.
Now they have lawyer with legal aid and If I want defend I gotta be prepared to lose 20k or just leave them in the property forever
