    Thanks LC. I think the problem is that the tenant is prepared to lie to the court that he occupied the same room since 1992. How can Philip prove otherwise?

    Ha ha. So he's lying to the court?

    I think you need to turn your house upside down to see if you can find any records from 1992 Philip.

    I think one small chink of light may be that you gave your tenant a different room. Has he mentioned this in his defence? The case mentioned has the tenant taking the whole floor that includes the...

    I believe it's two months notice from the landlord, or one month from the tenant.

    My first instinct was to say go to court and fight this. However, judges are renowned here for making daft rulings. Could you 'pay him off' to leave? I think this might be your easiest option.

    I don't recommend you do fit wood flooring in a flat. However, your option 3 sounds very similar to leaving the carpet & underlay in place and putting a floating floor on top. Could you just buy a...

    Could you send your wife to live in one of your rental properties, and find someone else who'll be happy with your kitchen? :)

    Isn't it kinder to specify you won't take particular tenants, rather than pretend it doesn't matter, and 'go through the motions' of showing the property and referencing them?

    Take 6 months rent up front for a 6 month tenancy, and give them an S21 with the agreement. Any funny business, and they get a possession order at the 6 month point.
