    Evicting a family member with no tenancy? 9th May 19 at 9:54 PM
    Hello everybody!

    Desperate for any advice..

    My brother has been living in my house and paying rent for the last ten years without any official tenancy agreement. The situation is Iím pregnant and now need to sell the property. He is now refusing access for the estate agents to show prospective buyers around the property. My understanding is I can issue a section 21 to start the eviction process, however, I have never issued him a gas safety or energy certificate (didnít know I needed to - my fault entirely). What options do I have to evict?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Unfortunately not otherwise I would have done.

    I have no access to quote, edit or delete from a mobile. The buttons on the webpage have never worked for me. If however you can suggest ansolution ai will happily try it as its quite annoying

    Two things you can try. On my phone if I turn it to landscape then it goes into "web view" and you can then delete. Or, somewhere down the bottom of the page on the phone view you should see something like "view as web version " or words like that EDIT just looked its "Desktop Version". Again then you can delete. Bit of a faff but hopefully one of those should work.

    Heís refusing access requests via email and has said that if we show up at the house we will then be refused access.

    The house was totally newly decorated when he moved in, and has since had all new double glazing and a new boiler/central heating system. I arranged all the work and paid for it all. If minor things have gone wrong in the house (a kitchen tap needed replacing for example) he has done this himself and then taken money off the rent.
