Residential tenancies – nightmare tenants

The landlord had let a flat to the tenant on an assured tenancy.

Over a number of years, the landlord complained that the tenant had sawn through floorboards to access a cellar; had damaged padlocks placed by the landlord; had erected a metal structure outside the front of his flat and refused to dismantle it; had allowed his dogs to foul the communal areas outside the flat and refused to clean up regularly.

The judge considered whether she should make an immediate or suspended order for possession i.e. effectively say that if the tenant put everything right, the he would not have to go

However, she decided that, in the light of the tenant's attitude to the tenancy and the landlord's requests for compliance, the tenant was not likely to comply with the terms of a suspended order, and so made an immediate order for possession.

Moral: Those who commit persistent breaches of tenancy agreements are at risk of immediate possession orders
