Customer Question

Hi i have a property it’s been up for sale since sept 2019 due to it not selling the same agent let it for me with a 6 month tenancy in December the tenant had split from her husband and needed to move quickly she knew the house was up for sale and was happy i helped her out just before Christmas 2019 the beginning of march 2020 i accepted an offer on the house and it now comes to light that the tenant has contacted the council and said I’m making her homeless THE AGENT HAS ISSUED HER WITH a section 21 , the council have come back to the tenant and said she has to be served 3 months notice !! She is trying to get a council house but she is still married her husband has been staying at my house she is working and has monies from the sale of her house I’m being made out to be the bad person her tenancy has come to a natural end she was given notice when needed but now saying she might not leave on the 10th June
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: my buyers want the property to be empty otherwise they wont exchange or complete the tenant is trying to milk the system and say she’s homeless when she has a job and money the agent hasn’t kept me up to speed and i think shouldn’t have given her the section21 , I’m not sure
