Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
how may I assist with the above please? Do you have some queries in relation to the eviction process for example?
thank you. How may I assist you on the above? Do you have some questions you would like addressed?
thank you. I note you have applied under accelerated possession following the service of section 21 notice. Accordingly, providing your notice and associated documentation is in order, and the court found that it was, the court cannot use its discretion to refuse possession. it can give a teenant up to an additional 42 days on grounds of exceptional hardship if the tenant is able to convince the court in this regard. In terms of a response, it would be important to correct any errors in relation to rent payments that she has presented. You can also present an argument as regards ***** ***** does not apply if you consider this to be appropriate.
in relation to fees set out in the tenancy agreement, the tenant fees act has placed severe limitations on what fees a landlord can charge. The interest payments set out in the tenancy agreement is regrettably unenforceable as a prohibitive payment as the limit of interest authorised by the tenant fees act is a maximum of 3% above the Bank of England's base rate. in respect of actual genuine costs you have incurred as a result of breach of contract on the part of the tenant, these are not bound by the tenant these act but any such costs must be genuine costs necessarily incurred. Legal costs can be awarded at the discretion of the court but are normally not awarded in relation to possession claims
this can bee dealt with through possession proceedings under the accelerated route. Instead, you would need in default of any agreement in this respect to either use the alternative dispute resolution processes available through the deposit protection service alternatively, would need to issue a part seven proceedings in the County Court to make a recovery and to the extent the deposit is lodged with a deposit protection service, also apply as part of that claim for an order that the deposit protection service releases that deposit to you.
May I clarify - answer her in relation to what please? Your court claim or something else?
