Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Can you advice me on someone else who can represent me? I need only a letter to the Council. I have done all the investigation on Gov.uk thanks to you and I am sure that the Council is wrong. The tenants cannot hold an Assured Shorthold Tenancy because I live in the house and we share the bills & gas. I alone pay Tax and Water and other outgoings and it is clearly stated in the contract that I am letting a room(bedroom) on the second floor with USE of bathroom on the second floor and living room and kitchenette on the first floor. The bathroom and living room and kitchenette is shared with another tenant that I let a second room(bedroom) on the second floor. I live on the ground floor and I also hold a toiler/wash room on the first floor which the tenants use too although it is not mentioned in the contract. Can it be used to define my tenants(lodgers) as Excluded Occupiers?
I cannot see how this could possibly be a Assured Short hold Tenancy.
Any local solicitor that deals with landlord and tenant matters will be able to deal with this .
There is a list of all the solicitors in the country arranged by postcode and the type of work they do on the Law Society website which you will access by following this link.
hopefully shouldn’t need more than one letter from the solicitor
