    Hi.

    I have been dealing with an RSL who have found the Wonder that is the 4 week overlap provision. Problem is that they are asking for it without exception or really understand the rules.

    I have sent them the regs, evidence from the guidance manual and all that I can but the requests still keep coming!

    Does anyone have any guidance notes, links to good sites or any other information they would be willing to share with me so that I can ensure that this landlord are making the claims when needed?

    Thank you in advance.

    from experience you need to nip it in the bud sooner rather than later.

    You will also need to let your staff know the situation and ensure they abide by the regs as well!

    Don’t be afraid to turn the RSL down and invite them to appeal if they so wish.

    Overlaps should be awarded as an exception, yet so many HAs use it to minimise voids and help cash flow, a subject which has been discussed several times on this forum.

    If you can find any cases where non-hb tenants vacate and the notice period is not enforced by the landlord then it’ll add meat to any case you have against the HA should it get messy. But hopefully they’ll see the light well before that stage.
