Question regarding evicting a Permitted Occupier
We have always communicated during the Tenancy with her partner, our one "Tenant" as she is not party to the Lease agreement. To cut a very long story short, she is now 18 but has not signed a new Lease and thus still has "permitted occupier" status. However, we have had Section 8 and Section 21 notices issued on our behalf as they have persistently broken the Head Lease terms of the Apartments by parking a van and keeping a dog despite requests to remove them which has resulted in the managing agents for the apartments requesting they be served notice and also, have not paid any rent since January. Fortunately, we have insurance to cover the legal costs of removing the tenant who signed the Lease, but they expressly will not cover the costs of removing the permitted occupier.
Have you any advice as to what we should do regarding this young lady, should be give her written notice to vacate, and what period of time should we allow for the notice, and also what rights does she have? Is it best to avoid "permitted occupiers" at all costs?
Many thanks for your help.
