Question

Entry and Refusal (England) | Landlord Wants Tenant to Leave (England) | Nuisance and Anti-social Behaviour (England)

obstructing testing

23 Mar 2017 | 1 comment

We have a tenant in a shared house who ignored the notice given which required access to her room to carry out a necessary periodic testing of the electrical installation ( in tandem with up grading of the consumer unit) on the grounds that the other 5 tenants were spoken to personally regarding the matter.
She did not attend on the day and deliberately obstructed the mandatory testing. In addition, she has refused to hand over a copy of the key to her room after the locks were changed. She has also been given a section 21 notice which has run its course and of course she has ignored it. Apart from the obvious what would you do with her . She was given notice for dealing and violent behaviour

    In particular because the section 21 has expired, there isn’t really anything else other than obtain a possession order.

    There are grounds for failure to allow entry and other breach of tenancy but they are complex and potentially lengthy. The section gives no reason so should just go through without trouble.
