The PIMS Tenancy Agreement complies with the Tenant Fees Ban June 2019
Private tenants who commit anti-social behaviour could face exclusion from their homes, after a government U-turn last week. The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill will provide powers to landlords to apply to temporarily evict tenants if they are guilty of sustained ASB.
This power would only have applied to social tenants- meaning no action could be taken against private tenants in the private rented sector.
The government initially rejected calls from Labour and housing bodies for the power to apply to all tenancies, but changed course on Tuesday when it announced an amendment to the bill.
The legal protocols for eviction using Anti Social Laws are still likely to be the same burden of proof so sadly Eviction using Section 21 Notice remains a more viable and less personalised/confrontational eviction

Under section 42 of the County Courts Act 1984 it is possible for the Court to transfer a matter from the County Court to the High Court for enforcement but leave (permission) of the Court is required first.

An application to seek permission can be made either at the time of making the possession claim or after possession has been ordered.
