Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
For now please let me know why you signed a 6 month agreement, if you wanted to be there for 4 years please?Alex
Do you have a number?
I will give you a call now, as it will be quick. Alex
Sure. Its bad news I am afraid. If you signed a 6 month agreement, unless there is anything else to the contrary then you may have to move out.
The S.21 notice is a formality, this means that your tenancy ends after the 6 month period.
However the Landlord just may get you to sign a new 6 month agreement - if you are a good tenant then there is no reason why the Landlord will not.
But in law, if you sign a 6 month agreement, then technically that is all you are entitled to.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
The Landlord MUST get an order for possession.
If the landlord gets this then you can be evicted, but only with a certified bailiff.
Does that clarify? Alex
You can delay it by about 4 months, but if they seek possession its inevitable.
I am sorry. Alex
£280 Court fee and £110 warrant. These costs you will have to pay.
Those are the court fees. Alex
You can 4 months, but thats it.
You have already been given the S.21 notice so you should start to make plans now, just in case.
6 months full. Alex
Ok - but that wont stop possession proceedings though.
You may have a claim for damages, but you cant stop possession.
You have a 6 month agreement and the landlord is entitled to possession.
You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compensate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you will be. Sorry I was just getting ready for bed as its after 11pm
No, at the end of 6 or 12 months you could be given notice. Alex
Not unless you signed for 4 years - no.
You get evicted for arrears, a County Court Judgment and you get bailiffs to come after you for rent.
