We have 4 children under 8 years old and went into private rented (for schooling reasons) – we rented the home we own out so we are now both landlord and tenant. Our tenant was due to be leaving at the end of May whereby we are returning home and has just told us we have to evict her so she can get a council house! To add to the problem I registered her deposit 2 days late as we were on holiday at the time. Would the way forward be to give her back her £3000 deposit so I can issue a S21 notice and copy the LA in as well – if they tell her to stay put, they will be making us homeless with no requirement to house us as we own a property – the very same property that they’ve told her to effectively squat in so that she doesn’t make herself “voluntarily homeless”! I am worried sick about the whole thing. The other thing the LA has told her is to stop paying rent!!! Any help or advice so very gratefully received as first time accidental landlords!
