Mumsnet Amateur Landlady Finds Out It's Not All Easy Money In The Bank

Recommended Posts


A bit of schadenfreude for those of us who find that the practice of letting out one's old flat rather than feeding FTB type properties back to the market is wrong and should be heavily taxed by government to disincentivise.

We let DPs old flat through an agency. It's in a house divided into two flats. Today the neighbour in the other flat called to say that the tenant had reported her and her fiance to the police, making a statement that she had printed leaflets with tenant's picture on saying had AIDS and was standing distributing them on the street outside and other crazy things. The police turned up to arrest neighbour, then reread the statement, did some investigating and found tenant had made a similar statement a year ago, under a name differing by one letter from her current name.

Neighbour is obviously scared, police have asked tenant to stay away from neighbour, but are taking no further action. We're waiting for agents to call us back, but in the meantime, desperately need some advice.

We have known neighbour for years, and completely believe her that the tennant has made up the entire statement. We do not want the tenant to remain in the flat and continue to harass and make neighbour's life difficult. What can we do, legally, to evict asap?
