house sharing problem

    Hi all,

    Thanks for taking the time and reading this. If there is any suggestion, please let me know.

    It's always not easy to share a house with other people. There is a problem in our house. We have an agreement with a homosexual couple who can only stay with us for under six months.

    One month ago, we've given them the notice to end the agreement. ( The contract is already expired last month. )

    Two weeks ago, one of them had left, the other one starts to smoke weed in the room and invite friends to come to the house and stay overnight. We had given noise and visitors was not allowed notice, but it seems he doesn't care about it.

    I would like to ask if there is any way to solve it if he didn't want to leave at the end of the date?

    Has he objected to leaving yet or given any indication he will resist?

    Oh no, the woke people will be onto this thread now, you have mentioned homosexual couple. What has their sexual orientation got to do with the tenant behaviour.🙄

    If only they were heterosexuals...

    I wondered how that fact was relevant to the OP's plight. 😂

    OP - it sounds like they are getting ready to check out so no longer feel the need to play by the rules and keep you onside anymore since they're leaving shortly anyway.

    You haven't given any ifo that indicates if they're digging in.

    Are they on the lease? It sounds like they may be licensees so you can ask them to leave immediately due to anti social behaviour

    There are parts of your OP that I cannot understand. Why would he not be allowed to have guests?

    And why do you assume he won’t be leaving by the agreed date?

    Thanks for the message.

    He(subtenant) started to be aggressive about the contract is unfair, and even sent a message to the landlord. Even though the landlord told us to stop him, but we are not sure if he is going to find other reasons to fight with us? or trying to find something to give us in trouble!

    We would like to get some help or a way to sort out these. there are people who think they are right all the time. it's hard to deal with it

  • Registered Users Posts: 5 pe2021

    no no. There is nothing related to gender. it was not the issue. but, the tenant behavior is a thing here.

    Throw him out before he exceeds 6 months, the end

  • Registered Users Posts: 5 pe2021

    nothing related to the sexual issue. it's only a tenant problem. no matter they are heterosexuals or homosexual.

    no, they are not. we don't know the law here. it supposed be the landlord to ask him to leave immediately. or what else we can take action to solve it?

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,022 ✭✭✭ Caranica

    They're not on the lease so it sounds like you accepted them so they're your licensees. Accordingly they have next to no rights and can be asked to leave immediately

  • Registered Users Posts: 691 ✭✭✭ jmlad2020

    Ooooooo you said homosexuals. The green hair brigade won't like that.

    Don't return his deposit if he overstays. Use it against him.

    This is a grey area, if you found the couple and you collect the rent from them then they are probably a licence. If they pay rent to the Landlord then they could be classed as a tenant.

    If they are a licence you can ask them leave with reasonable notice, if you've given them that already I'd ask them to leave with a week possibly two weeks notice. Being gay should have nothing to do with it so keep it out of it. Simply tell them it's working out and could they find somewhere else, this was always a temporary deal anyway.

    They could apply to your LL to be made a tenant, if they do tell them to decline, they have been using drugs in the house and been hostile to others living in the house would be a good enough reason.

    If they dig their heals in buy strong black bin bags, and tell them you will bag up their stuff if they don't leave.

    What ever you do, don't let them way with paying half rent, the rent if the full value. However they may refuse to pay the last months rent. Where is the other half of the couple, are they broken up is there anything they can do
