    Instead of trying to prevent landlord from using s.21 perhaps they should strictly enforce repair obligations.

    If a landlord knows that the council will go after him hard whether they evict or not...

    I think that this shows the uncertainty regarding these tenancies, and that it is over-optimistic to claim that there is no risk.

    This case shows that there is a risk re. s.21 validity, and in...

    Yes but this year they're going for a PS4 and a new TV.

    If the deposit is protected and the only issue are the PI then you do not have to refund the deposit in order to use s.21: Just give the PI then serve a valid s.21.

    If the only restriction is to let to "a single family and to use the property for residential purposes" then, in my view, holiday lets do not breach that covenant as long as you let to a single...

    Ah but the RPI is not 1%, 2% or whatever else: It is an index. The percentage is the rate of growth of the RPI.

    For example, for October this year the RPI was 257.7. It was 251.9 for October last...

    If all what you receive in rent goes towards the mortgage your business is going down and thus obviously you do not have money to live on.

    The only source I know for statutes is legislation.gov.uk, but they usually don't update Acts very quickly (if at all).

    Yes, landlord and tenant can agree to change the rent at any time. If the tenancy is periodic and the tenant agrees then it 'saves' your s.13 'budget'.

    I think there is not much value in this thread at this point, and that you are looking for issues where there are none.

    Well, if he not "legally allowed" to hold a key, it means that he cannot hold a key and thus that he would breaking the law by holding one.

    However, not having a legal entitlement means that he...

    I don't think she claimed that.
    Rather, the landlord has no legal entitlement to hold a key, which is quite different.
