hi, still not resolved here. The council are now saying they are treating me as a landlord in residence and i think the tenant as a non excluded tenancy
the house is split into four flats but is one freehold legally, if a flat is empty i will generally stay in it to save costs , if not i will rent somewhere short term. i do not have a regular place so i use the house as my point of contact for mail , formal documents , phone , banking etc. i am not there more than 3 - 4 months per year
i am now being told that a sec 21 is not applicable and i need a notice to quit for a landlord in residence which has a 28 day expiry and does not need grounds, is this correct? what is the proper name for the document?
this would suit me if i can use it but i am concerned whether or not i qualify as in residence sufficient to convince a court if it came to it
