Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX 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, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
I am not sure what you mean, you have already sought possession through the Court?
Why dont you wait until the court date please?
As I said in my message I have submitted a possession on line claim and received a date for the hearing. I am going to wait for the court hearing about the possession and the arrears etc, but given I have submitted the claim on line wanted to know if there was anything else I needed to issue or do before the court hearing (i.e issue anything else to court or tenant). Also my question about whether I can inspection the property is a separate matter to the court hearing as I said. Maybe you can come back to me on both the points I mentioned.Thanks, Chris
There is nothing else you need to do save for take to Court an up to date rent account.
You can inspect the property if your agreement allows for this, which I assume it does.
So nothing else to do and yes to inspect.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Sorry, just one more thing on the inspection. The tenancy agreement says the tenant must allow me access at any reasonable time and I may enter to inspect as long as I give 24 hours notice. But it also says I can only enter if the tenant consents unless it is an emergency.
I have tried to get permission on several occasions but failed so far. I have now told the tenant I will inspect on Tuesday at 11 am and will let myself in with my keys if he is not there. Am I ok to do that? and what if he comes back to me before then and says no as it would seem he would be breaching the tenancy agreement based on what I've said above, but I would as well if he hasn't given me permission??? Maybe you can let me know. Thank you, Chris
