I wonder if someone would be able to help me with a tenant issue... I'll run through the situation briefly... For the last year my tenant had been on a statutory periodic tenancy after his original tenancy expired. Due to noise issues caused by my tenant we issued him a Section 21 early this year, set to expire mid-April.
We have been advertising the property and have only just found a new tenant to move in towards the end of July. For the last two months, on the 17th of the month the tenant has paid cash into our account without our permission in an attempt to extend the tenancy. As we didn't have a new tenant lined up we gave him an extra month's grace (twice!), however we really do need him out in the next week this time. The rent he has paid takes him up to the 21st of July, how can we actually get him out?
I'm guessing he'll try and pay the rent into our account again. I'll try and refund it to him but we don't have his bank account details and I bet he'll refuse thinking he can extend the tenancy.
Could someone explain my legal position please, he's basically making a mockery of us saying that he has been to Citizens Advice and they say we can't do anything about it (yeah right!).
