Hello John my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I assume you are living at the property too?
Yes we are
Yesterday my question was regarding getting him out armed with the answer he has now found somewhere and we are just waiting credit checks etc (if he's being truthful)
I dont seem to be getting any replies even though above it says a response has been made but not here??...this is bad...??
I don't think this chat is working
sheesh.......do I start over?..I used to get like email type answers this is bad
as I was saying
Yes I do live in the house..(its my home)
Not even that ... purely a guest that now claims to be a tenant
His status is the thing we disagree over.. the verbal arrangement was he could stay temporarily unitl either he finds somewhere OR my Mum dies ...and last may mum died.
more than one room.......the point is he is claiming to be a tenant (even though he never has been) and now he has environmental health visiting can I stop that visit until his "status" has been legally decided?
All going well he will be gone by the end of the month
basically ....he claims to be a tenant I claim he is NOT
yes its our home we had some spare rooms and allowed him to stay
whether, legally,his word is accepted and its decided he IS a tenant or whether my word is accepted and he isn't.
until that judgement can the council come to my home and inspect it under the housing act 2004
its complicated its a BIG house
But surely him just claiming to be a tenant does not make it so and therefore does not give the council the right????
we simply put a friend up..
OK thank you
as I will say to him if its legally decided this story is correct then I will happily let them in
Thats hard as it would be trying to prove a negative...the fact he signed a letter agreeing to leave our family home might help
but environmental health cover lodgers (its not that I have anything to hide I just feel letting hin in will be taken as my admission to being his landlord and not just friend helping someone out
he does live here but as our guest he only pays his energy use etc (though now it seems he's claiming he pays rent
so I need to get the officer agree he's coming in to inspect as Bryan could be a lodger?
I would prefer not to have him in at all though I don't have a great deal of trust left since this started ...if the officer "decides" he's a lodger ?
ah!... I have access to his areas and he to mine except we respected each others privacy
the house has 2 kitchen and extra bathrooms.....
yeah we gave him notice which is when he decided to claim to be a tenant *sigh* which the council have chosen to believe.....
Surely until all facts have been heard and considered no one (least of all a non legay council officer ) can make that descisioN/
ok but do I legally have to let him in?
ok... I will chat to him on the doorstep and if he's human and listens and is reasonable allow him in . if not I shall give him a letter stating my reasons why I am not letting him in...who's to say he doesn't just agree with me then go away and treat it like he is a tenant as I say this whole saga has left me very distrustfull
I mean agree with me to gain access
thats impossible it would be his word against mine all the way...although we have free access to all areas he chose not to use our areas etc....actually ......I might be able to...
Umm no thank you you have been great..
