The tenancy has now expired and is rolling over. it was a 12mth assured shorthold tenancy.
The tenant did not pay a deposit or any rent in advance.
in the 3 month period to November 2011 the tenant was paying the rent fortnightly because he did not have the monthly rental on the due date. Even then it was often later than every two weeks.
For 4 months of this year 2012 the tenant has been late paying the rent and again he has tried to pay fortnightly and still late.
he asked to renew the tenancy and wanted another 12month tenancy but this was not agreed to because he is always late with the rent and he is under the impression that by the tenancy rolling over that I am doing something illegal.
I need to find the actual agreement as i do not have it to hand but i can produce bank statements showing the lateness of the rental money.
sorry one more question - the guy has small children - will this go against me in trying to get an eviction ?
and do i stop taking rent from him now if I want to go down the route of eviction ?
