Tenant not signing Tenancy Agreement
I am a landlord with one property. My tenant was my Joint tenant(with his girlfriend, before they split up). He asked that I take him on as a single tenancy. I agreed and issued a new Tenancy agreement, which was the same as the last one issued when joint. He has signed the tenancy agreement but made lots of amendments to it (scribble out paragraphs & added N/A to lots)and says he will only pay 4 weekly, not monthly and he says he will not accept my Tenancy agreement.
He is already in arrears.
I now know I should have issued a section 21 as soon as his girlfriend handed in her notice!
Any suggestions of what to do would be very much appreciated and how do I stand legally?
