    Hi. It is hard to understand.

    LL appears to have successfully evicted the tenant: "I had to evicted them out" seems to support that. A big problem solved!

    Hello.
    I have a question.
    We have two tenants who regularly pay late, one two weeks and the other three weeks late.

    Hello Westminster, thanks again.

    Thanks again Westminister.

    Yes, the TA was drafted by a Letting Agent, and it was he who found us this great tenant. When will we ever learn!

    Hi. You could ask to see written evidence that he needs this information. It's unlikely to be statutory.
