my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
please let me know whether he is named on the tenancy, I assume not?
Do you have a clause that says not to cause noise or annoyance to others?
Ok. The contract would usually have a clause saying not to allow noise or annoyance, which includes guests
So you have 2 forms of attack here:
1) You can ask the tenant NOT to allow her partner to attend the property.
2) If she refuses then you can say she is in breach of contract and therefore her tenancy will be terminated and she will have to move out
The tenant is usually responsible behaviour of their guests.
So warn her first of all that she needs to deal with it and then if she does not you can take steps to have her evicted.
if she values her place of residence then she will deal with the issue.
You as Landlord can't stop him attending UNLESS the tenancy agreement allows you to do so
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
This is contract, its a contractual matter so no specific legislation
But you are not being harassed, the tenants are. They would need to make a formal complaint to the Police.
You can't sadly
You can't only if the tenancy agreement allows you to - please see above
This is why you need to check the terms and warn the tenant allowing the boyfriend in
She is warned to stop him otherwise you will seek to evict.
if she refuses then you go down the possession / eviction route
Does that help?
The Police can, if they consider it harassment, warn him not to and stay away.
If he breaches the warning they can prosecute.
But they may consider this to be a civil matter.
Can I clarify anything else ?
