Quote from: ckurimbokus on October 26, 2023, 09:00:55 AMTenants on 1 year contract with a 6 month break clause. S21 notice served after 6 months. Tenants due to vacate 2 days ago but they have said that they have no where to go to and will not move out. We sent email to them on that day, making it clear that we want them to vacate and to hand keys over to estate agents. Rent paid by standing order, arrived in our account; no arrears. If we accept the rent, does this imply that we are prepared to let them stay and continue to rent from us?If they do vacate within the month, do we have to pro-rata the time they stayed and refund what is remaining of the month's rent?We will be applying for a court order for possession shortly.Thank you for your help
Quote from: ckurimbokus on November 01, 2023, 10:04:59 PMThank you for this, David. We know that the tenant has no intention of moving out as she has told the letting agent that they will not be able to find a property that suits them as well as this one, and at the price so we are aware that they will drag their heels for as long as they possibly can. I think we have covered all the requirements of the S21 and are preparing the court forms for possession and intend to post recorded delivery to the courts.There does not appear to be anywhere that states how much and how I pay the court fee for this. I tried calling Barnet Civil Court but after waiting 45 mins, gave up. I emailed to ask but have not had any reply. Supportthroughcourts.org.uk reckons that I send the form 5NB in and they will get in touch to ask for the fee (unusual as government depts tend to want £ upfront before they do anything? or am I being skeptical here?) Does anyone in this forum know the answer to this please?Many thanks, all help and advice very much appreciated
