Westminster tenants issued with Section 21 notice

A couple occupying a central Westminster house, on an assured shorthold tenancy agreement, have been issued with a Section 21 notice giving them just eight weeks to vacate the property. 

Theresa and her husband Philip moved into the property in June 2016 and have been under constant threat of eviction ever since. 

Matters appear to have come to a head today, when the couple's new landlords, ERG Property Services Limited, issued them with a Section 21 notice requiring them to vacate the property within two months.

Speaking to the press, Housing Secretary James Brokenshire used the case to illustrate why he is pushing for changes to the law to abolish Section 21 notices.

“Abuse of Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988, stops families from putting down strong and stable roots in their community,” he told reporters.

“As illustrated by the case of the Mays, unscrupulous landlords can use these notices to evict tenants on short notice and when no-fault is apparent.

“That is why I am pleased to announce that the government plans to consult on abolishing Section 21 evictions in England, meaning private landlords will no longer be able to evict tenants from their homes at short notice.”

ERG Property Services Limited, who completed the purchase of the Downing Street address and several other Westminster properties over the weekend, declined to comment. 

Five small-but-important things your mom never told you about marrying an ISIS fighter

Are you thinking of moving to a Third World country to marry a hero of the caliphate? Here are five things your mother probably never told you about marrying that dishy Daeshy you met online.  

Goats come with the territory

When it comes to pets, you’ll need to accept that cats and dogs are out, but goats are always in. If he insists on the goats sharing the marital bed then just smile and keep a bag of carrots on the nightstand in case they get peckish in the night.

A clean home is a happy home

Keeping a bombed out shell of a building clean is undoubtedly a challenge, but after a hard day he’ll expect to return to a tidy home. Try sweeping up the dust and shrapnel just before he comes home and making sure his collection of vintage RPGs are always polished and well oiled.

Men love their hobbies

Your husband’s interests are likely to be part of what attracted you to him in the first place, so resist resenting the time and energy he spends tinkering with that rusty old Toyota Hilux or plotting jihad. Remember, he’s not ignoring his family, he’s just taking a little me-time to relax doing what he loves.

A woman’s place is in the home

Sure you’ll need to pop out to the shops during the cease-fire, but otherwise, you’re safest at home. If hubby asks you to drive a car you’ve never seen before, with several large bags of fertiliser in the trunk, down to the local army base, politely decline saying you have a headache or need to feed the goats. 

They secretly like reality TV

After a hard day condemning the infidel, your brave little soldier will probably want to unwind in front of the TV with a couple of episodes of the Kardashians or Geordie Shore. While you may find this unpalatable, try to remember that he probably just needs to recharge his hatred of the west and no-one does that better than Kim and Khloé.
