The tenancy was originally for 6 months.
The tenant has no current arrears but has consistently paid late each and every month with a variaety of excuses. The most recent month's rent was paid by the guarantor.
The tenant should have vacated last week and we had identified a new tenant due to be moving in this Thursday 20th so this has implications for other people too.
The term expired 14 Feb. we issued S21 to co-oincide with this as given the tenant's late payment record we had no intention of extending his tenancy.
