    I don't particularly like either clause as they are not specific enough, and lack sufficient detail as to timescales. As I have said it is better to consult a specialist solicitor in your area. Who...

    It very much depends on how well drafted your "break clause" is because that is what you are trying to implement. Does the clause mention the service of a S.21 Notice? If you are using section 21...

    It took me exactly 3 months from the date of the Court application to the bailiff attending to execute the Warrant. There is no defence to a correctly served S.21 Notice and the tenant is just...

    Has your tenant left the keys and cleared out personal belongings? If the answers are 'no' then you should proceed very carefully so as not to illegally regain possession. If the answers are 'yes'...
