Given a standard term of an AST is the right to peace & quiet, landlord must give 24 hours written notice, etc...

If i needed to proof that my ex-landlord always failed to provide 24 hours written notice on all occasions when entering property, surely the fact he couldn't provide copies of any notices would be proof enough?

It is not enough for the LL to give you 24hr written notice; you must give your permission for him to enter. He should not enter without your permission.

To write; if I don't hear from you I will take that as confirmation, is not strictly good enough, but I should think many LL do not realise and think just the notice is good enough to let themselves in.

This is harassment and you should take legal advice. A landlord cannot enter his tenanted property at ANY time without the tenant's permission except in an emergency irrespective of what it says in an AST. The clauses in an agreement which diminish your legal rights are not enforceable.

Thanks for the replies....

It's actually the case that my ex-landlord is taking me to court over a 'missing' item of furniture (which i left elsewhere in the house), and various other trumped-up claims.

The best thing for me is that there was never a written tenancy agreement, nor inventory (no check in, or check out).

Copy of his HMO Licence application states, by his own word - "some but not all tenants have tenancy agreement or inventory" :)

I'm just after as much evidence as possible to take to the Court and show he's not got a leg to stand in regarding his 'claim'.

Yeah, i've realised that from various other posts i've read. Just want to find more 'nails for the coffin' :) Really can't believe that as, supposedly, an experienced landlord he's even taken it this far....

Ah well.... roll on the end of June!
