View Full Version : Very untidy tenant

I manage an HMO which has 5 bedrooms but only letting 3 of them at the moment. Have a problem with one of the tenants being very untidy - even in the communal area and she is really getting on the nerves of the other 2 tenants. We are hoping to let the other 2 rooms soon and will therefore be showing people around the property.
I am happy to write to the tenant re the mess but so far the complaints from other tenants seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
Does anybody have any ideas of what else to do?- she pays her rent ok but we are keen to probably end her tenancy anyway if this is not solved.There also appears to maybe be a problem with illegal drugs but this is unproven.
Many thanks for any comments.

Wouldn't get you possesssion! It might frighten a timid tenant.
