  • HMO & Multi-Lets

    Help to get rid of abusive HMO tenant

    When a new tenant do the following, please what is the way out:

    A          Her boyfriend moved in  which is not part of the agreement, any one above 18 year of age is meant to sign an agreement to move into a house. Also according to the HMO regulation, single room which is less than 10 square metre is meant for one person

    B          She and her boyfriend do smoke weed and inject drug in the room and bathroom, this has prompted other tenants in the house to be looking for another house to move to.

    C          She has become more violent to the extent of throwing plate at neighbor and also taking out cloth from drier and through it to garden.

    D          she constantly abuse other tenant racially, calling them animal, slave etc.

    E          She always forgot to lock all the entrance doors

    F          She threatened to black mail me by requesting for free rent, the message reads ‘’I want this month rent free or my boyfriend stays for the rest of it or we can look the other way and I will have everyone kicked out when I report this house to the council for being illegally rented out’’.

    She thought the property belong to council.

    Collect witness statements from other T about the abuse and anti social behaviour - then issue s8 eviction notice .

    Be prepared for it to get worse before it gets better.

    DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.

    You need to step back and get the professionals in.  Get the tenants to report the threats and drugs to the Police and then get Landlord Action to act on your behalf https://www.landlordaction.co.uk/eviction/residential-eviction/

    Sorry this has happened to you.  Issue s21 (If valid) and s8 (any relevant grounds) TODAY.

    Explain to her no reference (or a full honest one) and you will explain to council why eviction so she is likely to be "intentionally homeless".  Too many landlords seem too happy to let some other poor s*d of a landlord pick this fine specimen.  I'm sure you're above that eh!

    What were her credit checks & landlord references like?

    £5 says the Police don't fix it (... but I do hope I'm wrong...)

    You have grounds to issue a section 8 notice citing grounds 12 and 14, I suggest you do so.

    If the room is being over occupied and drugs are being taken then you should report it to the council and the police yourself.

    Their evidence will help you a great deal with possession and it is better for you to tell the council than for the tenant to do so.
