OK needs must so to speak.

I can only put a skeleton message, this is not an AST question, which seems to rule the waves. I have done many  AST deposits since its beginning, but via estate agents, on my houses. Im proud that some of you gift to the poor tenant student, if you don't do one right.

At the moment Im doing my upmost to make sure I don't contribute to their needs, where good honest landlords are involved . The bad ones, well its their behaviour, since time began, that has brought this draconian penalties upon us imho lol Adam and Eve re still suing God for illegal eviction.

Im a live in landlord annexe, large house, big annexe. Was told by council I would need planning permission to separate them. Hence the part of house.

Even if I wanted to its just not possible to issue ASTs, would have preferred this, but went down the non assured route

For years ive taking on folks, great rents, big house, lenient if they want a favour, paying rent etc. A bit like yer kids treatment.

Possible down side Verbal agreements, backed up by accountability, emails, custom and practice ie I wont take cash, never a complaint ion 14 years.

His rent was due 20th sept he left 25,  5 day notice.

He knew from myself and there other tenants 30 days

Said he didn't know, only the rent, I asked why did he pay a deposit then? ummmm No written notice.

Anyway that is just a skeleton of my path to landlord righteousness. I have lots of evidence.

Ive has this letter of action from a no win no fee, it makes it clear im not to contact th tenant, thats not difficult, he left no address, doesn't answer phone calls emails.  The laws of the deposit scheme, lots of ref. to the AST,

And I need to send 3x rent, 1 x deposit of 380 each time to settler and avoid court action.

This letter of action details process. Not sure what they mean as they sent me this letter, without any other before letters from them nor the tenant, no offer of arbitrating, nothing.

I don't want to make mistakes in my letter back

What I want to do is explain in short shrift I cant do ast so not bound by it, on the contrary im bound by non AST tenancy agreement, be it verbal.

Also the fact of a counter claim from myself for breech of contract, no written notice,ie at the very least he owes 5 days up to 60 days.

Of course I will get professional legal advice when im back if it carries on, but just wanted a letter of reply, without putting my foot in a minefield of laws, created by wiser people than me.

Thanks for any advice, my clock is ticking lol as im away soon.

Cheers

Ray

Good luck Raymond.It's probably very wise to let your solicitor do all the talking and writing on your behalf.It's what they are paid for.

Pleased you have it sorted Raymond, that is the most important thing, because I didn't really get your original question.
