    Default Is there a HMO tenancy agreement covering anti social behaviour towards other tenants

    Hi - I have a tenant in a 6 bed HMO who is a very disruptive and upsets all the other tenants, who eventually leave. She calls me out for maintenance issues which don't exist and generally costs me a small fortune. I'm putting her rent up (considerably compared to the other tenants) but instead of looking for a room elsewhere she wants a new tenancy agreement. I need to put something in place now to help me evict her should the need (probably) arise.

    If you need to evict you serve the appropriate notice.

    Section 21 is guaranteed possession providing you follow the rules but requires at least 2 months notice*.

    Section 8 ground 14 may or may not work depending on the severity / warnings you have given but requires no notice*.

    * In both the above, the expiry of the notice does not end the tenancy, it just allows you to make an application to the court.



    The advice I give on this forum is for general information only. You are advised to seek specialist advice. I can provide such help on many tenancy matters including eviction, call 0800 270 7747 for details

    I'd go for section 21 as it results in a possession order mandatorily assuming validly served.

    All (sensible) tenancy agreements I've seen have something about not behaving like an a**eole to anyone else..

    If your TA doesn't have such clauses time to get a fresh one from a reliable supplier..

    Agree with others: No new TA, book out ASAP, S21 & S8 and pursue with vigour!

    Cheers!
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
