16th May 2019 – Section 21 notice – Tenant every evasive – No access given to the landlord from the last over six months – Court case filed by us – Outcome
Tenant ordered to vacate the property in 14 days and pay the landlord’s costs
Tenant very evasive and stopped all communications with the landlord and his agents. Numerous letters and message were sent to the tenant to give access to the property but to no avail. The mandatory checks were also due to the property but tenant seems not listening. The landlord served section 21 notice and approached us for formal possession proceedings. After reviewing the documents and after preparation of relevant documents along with Certificate of service, we filed the case in the court. Without any court hearing and by finding all the documents in the line of present regime of Deregulation Act 2015, the court was satisfied to order the tenant:
To vacate the property in 14 days and pay the costs of the landlord
9th May 2019 – Trial Hearing for full one day – Case pending since over last one and half year – Tenant won the appeal too – Matter represented by us on the final day hearing – the matter was concluded within two hours of hearing, outcome-
The tenant vacate the property within 21 days – daily rate and payment of rent arrears
The matter is long pending with the court for #tenanteviction. Initially on the first hearing (in 2018), we got the possession order in favour of the landlord. However, the tenant filed an appeal against the possession order and after appeal arguments, the appellate court allowed the appeal and further directions were given to both the parties. We continued to represent the client. We followed all the court’s ordered and kept negotiating with the tenant’s solicitors. After the massive exchange of documents, information, reports, communications, the matter was called for the trial. We represented the matter in Trial too. With our robust arguments, the matter was decided in two hours and the court ordered the tenant to:
Vacate the property within 21 days – daily rate and payment of rent arrears
8th May 2019 – Rent Arrears – No access to the property – tenant with the landlord for last 8-9 years – Landlord came into great financial crunch – Tenant promised payments but nothing paid since starting of the year – Section 8 notice – Agreed consent order to avoid costs – tenant breached the agreements – outcome
The landlord tenant relationship was quite old. The landlord assisted tenant on numerous occasions even by temporarily reducing the rent. But it seemed that the tenant took it for granted. No rent payment made since the starting of the year. Upon the request for the payment of the rent, the tenant argued for council involvement, legal aid solicitors etc. The landlord got very emotionally low as he needed the money desperately. He approached us for eviction. We served section 8 notice and upon the receipt of no response, the formal possession proceedings were initiated. Owing to the huge financial difficultly, we continuously advised the landlord to keep the negotiation open with the tenant and try to settle the matter, if possible. Upon multiple requests by the landlord, the tenant agreed to settle the matter. We advised our client for ‘suspended possession order’ rather to take the case back without having any rent arrears payment from the tenant. Both the parties then further agreed for suspended possession order and set out some terms and conditions about the rent arrears payments. However, surprisingly, the tenant default the payment plan agreed before the court. Outcome, the landlord instructed the:
05/04/2019 - Rent Arrears of over £5k –- HMO - Section 8 notice – The tenant was once the property manager – - Matter represented by us – Second hearing - Outcome –
Possession in 14 days, Payment of all rent arrears, payment of daily rate and Fixed Costs
The tenant was in himself the property manager. The property was the HMO. The tenant stopped paying rent and generated the arrears of over £5k. By having no other option available the landlord decides to evict the tenant/property manager. Section 8 notice was served and matter was taken to the court. Upon the first hearing, the tenant came to the court and pleaded lot of issues in the property and disputed the level of rent arrears. We argued hard, however, due to the paucity of time, the court adjourned the matter. Before adjournment, we pleaded that the defendant should all the evidence about the rent payments within 14 days. The court agreed with our pleadings. As the truth came forward, the tenant failed to file any defence within stipulated 14 days time and the court asked for the hearing. Upon the hearing, with our robust arguments, the court ordered the tenant to:-
Handover the Possession in 14 days, Payment of all rent arrears, payment of daily rate and Fixed Costs
27/03/2019 – Tenant in rent arrears – No access given since last 6-7 months – Council involved – Section 8 notice – negotiations – court hearing -– Matter represented by us – on the first hearing- Outcome
Possession in 28 days
It was the first property of the landlord to let. The only rental income for old age expenses. The tenant was the council tenant. Rent arrears since last four months. Despite of numerous requests, the tenant refused to give access to the property. Property was newly refurbished before it was let to the problem tenant. The landlord served section 21 notice himself and approached us to take the matter to the court. Upon reviewing the documents, it was found that section 21 notice was wrong. It caused great deal of distress among the landlord. We advised for section 8 notice. The landlord was worried that it will be litigated for long if section 8 route was taken. Upon our assurance, the landlord agreed to proceed with section 8 notice. We served the notice and took the matter to the court. Upon reaching the court, the tenant was present with her friend. She was given access to Duty Solicitor. Upon the hearing, we argued hard and highlighted numerous faults in the whole tenancy. We pleased that adjournment should not be given. The court asked both the parties to go out and narrow down the issues. We negotiated hard and the tenant admitted that owing to her own circumstances she cannot pay the rent. We agreed the settlement and presented the settlement to the court. As per the agreement, the court ordered the tenant to
Vacate the property in 28 days
12th March 2019 – Lot of disrepair issues – Council served a notice on the landlord – Rent Arrears of over eight months - Section 8 notice– Matter represented by us – on the first hearing- Outcome
Possession in 14 days, Payment of all rent arrears and costs
The tenant very evasive. Owing to the rent arrears, we served section 8 notice. The tenant took the notice to the council and reported lot of issues in the property (which were not reported to the landlord). No access was given too. Council inspected the property and served notice on the landlord to fix the issues. The landlord fixed the issues with three weeks as the tenant started giving access. After fixing all the issues, the landlord approached us to file the case in the court. We advised our client to wait for eight weeks to see whether the tenant pays any rent. The tenant failed to pay any rent. We filed the case in the court. Upon the first hearing, we explained to the court the whole circumstances and the landlord’s position. After perusal of the file and having been satisfied with our arguments, the court ordered the tenant to:
Possession in 14 days, Payment of all rent arrears and costs
