    Yes, read that before.
    Anything to counterclaim and offset the overdue rent can be used basically, it seems.

    I was suspecting that this could happen.

    After all, there is a contractual obligation.

    This does happen sometimes and when it does a case law makes headlines ;)

    I take the point, however I would hope that if a 'tenancy deposit' or 'security deposit' is asked and received a court would use common sense and conclude that there must have been a purpose to these...

    Council tax liability is defined in law so really there is no debate or anything for the council to decide. Now, of course the council may try to go after the easier target so there is indeed the...

    The Housing Act 2004, and schemes' T&Cs define a "tenancy deposit" as covering all obligations of the tenant, and it should be also clearly written in the tenancy agreement (deposit schemes have been...

    You have posted that before.
    The reference you provide shows that your claim is not correct. Facts are stubborn.

    OP seems to be a portfolio landlord. As such does it actually matter to her if the tenant stays more than a month?

    If she is willing to let on a commercial basis, perhaps a sensible solution would...

    A court would probably not grant possession because the tenant breached such clause on mail. However that does not mean that the clause is not valid and that breaching it will not have any...

    I never read that anywhere.

    1x deposit is the minimum penalty so you might expect it if the landlord has breached the requirements in a 'minimal' way. E.g. if a landlord served the PI a few days...

    'no' and 'no'.

    If the notice was sent recorded delivery you already have a document showing exactly when it was received.
    IMHO, there was no point for the tenant to date the notice and give it...

    In most letting agencies this sort of task is handled by young employees who didn't end up there through their shining academic record, shall we say.

    With a break clause the tenant has no such peace of mind, as the tenancy can be broken on 2 months notice.
    Not to mention than paying ~£100 to hopefully prevent a rent increase during the next 6...

    More like you were running a quasi-scam in order to be able to charge landlord and tenant.

    A letting agent does not provide the deposit, he receives it. A letting agent is not agent is not a third party.

    This suggests that you have created a single tenancy, which started with a fixed term and continued periodically.

    Yes, one way is to have one of the joint tenants serve a valid notice to quit. However that pushes the end of the tenancy 1+ months into the future (which may or may not be convenient).
    Another way...

    I think the law is rather clear, and confirmed by case law, that if the tenancy is for a term of at least 6 months then the tenant is the 'owner' for CT purposes and thus liable even if not resident.

    So the judge ruled that a single-tenant could agree to a new tenancy and thus contract binding all the other joint-tenants...

    What was your defence, btw?
