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.
What type of tenancy agreement do you have, when did you sign and when does it expire please?
assured shorthold tennancy
i signed Jan 2014 expires jun 2016
Ok - in that case he can't evict
on what grounds?
He can only evict if you are in breach of tenancy
You have a fixed contract until June 2016
Therefore unless you breach the agreement the Landlord can't ask you to leave until then.
ok, its the owner of the building, saying he's going to withdraw the right to let from the landlord
If he wants you to leave earlier he would have to need a Court Order.
But if you have not breached your tenancy then a Judge wont make an Order.
That is an issue between the owner of the building and your Landlord
Your Landlord would be in breach of contract if he tried to end your tenancy earlier.
But it seem ridiculous that they are trying to take action against you
In any event there will be a clause usually in a tenancy agreement saying not to cause noise or annoyance.
because the other tenant, had accused me of harassment (which is absurd) after i asked her to turn her music down, and therefore had to call the police who issued a warrant at 1.27am.
The Landlord of the noisy tenant should be taking action against the tenant
But sadly you can't enforce that.
Against you or the noisy neighbour?
the noisy tenant neighbour accused me of harassment after the police issued a noise warrant at 1.27am due to her playing music at that time, which could be heard in my flat.
Ok - so AGAINST your neighbour?
And then the owner of the building has threatened to have ME removed
yes against the neighbour
Ok - you can't be removed
You haven't breached your agreement
You can stay until June 2016
If they try to remove you, you can sue for breach of contract
But in any event they would need a Court order to remove you
A Judge isnt going to issue a possession order on the basis you complained about a noisy neighbour
who was in breach of noise abatement at 1.27am...
this is what i can't understand?
the neighbour was playing music at 1.27am and the police issued a warrant
Ok - I assume against the neighbour?
yes the police issued a warrant against the noisy neighbour at 1.27am for playing music and then she has accused ME of harassment and the building owner is threatening to have ME evicted.
Ok - but you were not issued with a harassment notice or anything?
If not then you do not need to worry
You can't be evicted
No Judge is going to order an eviction on the basis you complained about noise
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No, i have not been issued with a harassment notice! I have not harassed anyone.
