Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Are you supposed to be licensed as an HMO in your area?
I am not available to call you, but I can assist you online.
Have you issued gas certificates at all during the period of the tenancy?
No, you requested the phone call. I am not available to call you.
You can cancel your request. You can then ask customer services for a refund.
Do you want to continue with your query online?
As you have not provided a gas safety certificate you cannot use a s21 to evict your tenant.
Can I clarify anything for you?
If yes, please do ask.
If not, please take the time to rate positively as that is how I am credited for answering your query.
Would you like to know what notice to use to evict instead of a s21?
Unfortunately you requested the phone call. I told you that you could cancel your request and ask customer services for a refund. I am not in control of the phone calls, nor who picks them up.
You can contact customer services here (0808(###) ###-#### as you had clearly said you did not want the call you requested and have received the response you wanted online. I am sure they will be happy to assist you with this.
All the best.
You can use a section 8 notice - some of the grounds available (1-8) are mandatory grounds, which mean that if you apply and the court agrees, then the court has to award possession. The remaining grounds are discretionary, which means the court does not have to grant you possession, but can do if it thinks the ground is met. You might want to see a solicitor to draw up the notice for you so that you can discuss the most suitable ground to claim under.
You can't use a s21 as you didn't provide the right documentation at the start of the tenancy.
You can use a s8, you just have to find one of the 17 grounds which suits best.
You can create a new tenancy - unfortunately it won't change the status quo regarding your initial failure to provide a GS.
No, I told you what you needed to do above, but you claimed it was 'no use'. Since I can only tell you what you can do legally, and I have done so, there is nothing further I can add.
