Nobody wants to fall into a dispute with their landlord but sometimes, despite everyone’s best intentions disputes can take place.
If a tenant breaches a tenancy agreement it is possible that their landlord will try and evict them from the property.
The typical breaches of a tenancy agreement that landlords are likely to seek a court order for possession include;
- Anti-social behaviour – abusive behaviour, excessive noise, graffiti
- Criminal activity at the property – drug offences, prostitution
- Damage to the property – broken doors, broken windows
- Disrepair issues – not keeping the property in good order
- Keeping pets when the tenancy agreement forbids it
- Keeping an uncontrolled animal such as dogs
- Lack of cleanliness – dirty conditions in the property
- Rent arrears
- Sub-letting the property when it is prohibited
Tenants have legal obligations under a tenancy agreement that they must observe. If these obligations are not undertaken then they risk their landlord taking legal action against them.
In cases involving allegations of a breach of tenancy agreement, it is essential to take legal advice from a housing solicitor with expertise in landlord and tenant disputes. This is especially important if your landlord has already issued a Section 8 notice of a breach of tenancy and/or is seeking repossession after serving a Section 21 Notice to Quit, or is seeking damages.
