    It's an interesting situation because The Right to Exchange provisions of The Housing Act 1985 apply only to Secure Tenants not Asuured. I would say therefore that you might be on dodgy ground claiming deemed consnt because the landlord has not responded within 42 days although ironically your neighbour might make that argument.

    Now you are presenting a different case Andrew.

    Just one is acceptable - but which one?

    From my understanding,  if an NSP is issued for tenancy breaches, then the notice period is 14 days.

    You'll find there are some experts and they are clearly marked.  You'll also find others that work within the housing field.  Just because someone works within housing doesn't mean the advice they provide is correct.  I myself work within housing and have done for some time.  With regards my comments on RTB, my brother succeeded to my mother's tenancy.  It was a 4 bed property and he lived in it with my other brother. 2 bed need.  I went to the succession appointment with him and was very surprised how unsympathetic the housing officer was.  She was adamant my ...

  • From Rose007, 26/06/2014 10:46 pm in Request for Joint Tenancy

    I agree with above but note you have mentioned right to buy.  I am not an expert on right to buy however I am aware that currently we have a tenant taking legal acton as his tenancy was assigned to him by his partner prior to her death some years ago.  He has since put an application in to buy and it is questionable as to his length of tenancy.  It is being said that as far as the RTB is concerned he only qualifies for the time the assignment occured.  On the other hand, if your father goes ...
