Re-Housing Sitting Tennants

Comments

Further to my earlier email about Inherited Sitting Tennants: to recap, I have recently inherited a 3 bed semi with garage & garden,in need of refurbishment, rent @ 80 pr week, tennants in residence since mid 1970s.

I understand that one way to regain posession of property could be to re-house. What are rules governing this? Is there any literature availble?

1. Presumably replacement property must also be owned by me? 2. On what grounds could they refuse to be rehoused? 3. Am I correct in thinking that if I can offer a property in the local area (how local would it have to be?), in better condition and at the same rent-I understand that I can't legally charge any more-that they cannot reasonably refuse? Does the replacement home have to be exactly the same size and type as the old one? (Bearing in mind that two children are adult-one left home some time ago and they only have one -late teens-still at home)

4. If I were to find a suitable property and they were to refuse, what could I do then?
