There are far too many laws for the criminal than for the victim in the UK!
Most tenants are decent honest hard working citizens. Most 'Private' landlords are the very same.
That being said, when a decent landlord gives a notice to quit or a section 21 to bad tenants, who are often recking his/her asset/investment or simply not paying whislt single-handedly frustrating all those decent people trying to live their noraml lives with the blight of a ASBO waiting to happen next door in their neighbourhood, would have to wait two months before expecting to be able to legally take back his or her property.
Now. Here is were it gets legally bad for the honest but a help for the criminal!
Once the two months have expired the local councils (Merton Council in London/Surrey boarder is one such council!) advise the bad tenants or criminals to stay put and wait for the landlord to legally evict them!
This is the law I want to have reviewed. Landlords who have ALREADY GIVEN TWO MONTHS NOTICE should not have to go through the mire or atiquaited legal system AGAIN! landlords should have legal recourse to take back their rightful property and let the bad tenant take the landlord to court for legal recompence but not to stay where he or she is not welcome.
If the council are prepaird to help the bad tenants or criminals then the local council should house them!
SECTION 21 is all that should be required. No more legal loopholes for the decent lanlord.
TWO Months is enough for any tenant to get another place to live. In any case, it is not for the private landords to have to play games within antiquaited justice systems sucking up to old farts wearing wigs lookign to dot 'I's and cross 'T's whilst someones and sometimes manyothers lives sre being blighted by scum aided by the local council!!
Why is this idea important?
Concils, Law Courts and local Police need to deal with scum.
Obstructions need to be put in the way of SCUM not hard working decent Folk!
I do not advocate or condone poor or bad landlord practicing their trade but to recognise where a decent landlord has simpley given ample notice to a tenant then no more legal responsibilty should befall on the landlord but the indivdaul or tenant themselves.
I AM SIMPLY SUGGESTING THAT AFTER A LANDLORD HAS ISSUED (LEGALLY) A NOTICE TO QUIT OR SECTION 21 THEN WAITED THE MANDORTAY TWO MONTHS OR SO, THAT SHOULD BE IT!!!!
