Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did the agreement allow you to sublet please?
i have been served notice under section 8 of Housing Act to vacate the house as a Main tenant i am ready to vacate house But one of my sub letted tenant is not ready to leave the house.Does he has any right to stay in house
Are you allowed to sublet?
Does he have any right to stay - in short no
This is because as a tenant the notice to quit applies to everyone
If he does not move the Landlord can apply for a possession order seeking his removal
Technically you would be liable for that rent and costs of the hearing because he is a sub tenant of yours and you sub let without permission
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
as i done this to vacate the subletted tenant with good relation with landlord as subletted tenant is not paying me rent since last two weeks. Does he will be counted as trespass on the house.
Technically yes because he is not entitled to be there. But the Landlord can still seek possession and get a Court order
It wont be an illegal squat
But you may be liable for the costs of eviction because you sublet without permission
But the sub tenant has no right to remain
Does that clarify?
Does landlord can chnange locks of door and asked sub tenant to leave the house.
The Landlord can't change the locks without there being a Court ordered eviction
Then what is the emergency advice to vacate subtenant quickly. as he is trespass on the property
It makes no difference.
If it is a private dwelling the Landlord MUST MUST MUST get a Court order to evict
how long it takes to vacate the property in such a case
To get a Court order and eviction - probably 2 months
i have subletted this person as my friend and he is from my culture and country only. all subletted has been done verbally only. no signed contract has been given.
Yes, the answer above is the same.
The Landlord must get a Court order which could take 2 months for an eviction
