Exclusive: Landlords told eviction pre-action protocols will require tenants’ mental health to be checked

Government announcement is expected imminently on new rules to be followed before landlords start possession proceedings against tenants.

A leading evictions expert says landlords should expect the soon-to-be announced pre-action protocols for the privately rented sector to include requirements for them to consider a tenant’s mental health before applying for a possession hearing.

Pre-action protocols are already part of the eviction process within the social housing sector and require landlords to show they have considered a range of issues before applying to start possession proceedings.

“With the possibility of the courts reopening at the end of June for repossession hearings it is vitally important private landlords take into consideration all circumstances their tenants find themselves in,” says Tim Frome, Head of Legal at Landlord Action.

“Landlords should think about whether their tenant could be considered a vulnerable person under the Equality Act 2010.

“The social housing repossession pre action protocol already makes this a requirement on landlords so it is likely that this will be replicated in the private housing version which is going to be issued shortly.”

This will require landlords to consider not only if a tenant facing eviction is vulnerable, but in particular whether the tenant has the necessary mental capacity to defend a possession claim and, where appropriate, apply to appoint a litigation friend under Part 21 of the Civil Procedure Rules.

“With it being Mental Health Awareness Week I would urge all landlords to think about the last time they checked in with their tenants to make sure they are ok,” says Frome.

“A simple telephone call or text message can make a big difference to a person.”

Rental deposits alternative Ome, which is part of the Fraser Hamilton family of companies, last week launched a Rental Wellbeing Helpline to aid tenants who have found themselves suffering mentally, physically or financially with no obvious path to turn to for help. It is available within the free Ome app on both Android and Apple.

Golf Legend Greg Norman Slices $10M Off Price of His Colorado Ranch

The golf legend Greg Norman has relisted his massive Colorado ranch with an equally massive $10 million price reduction.

Now available for $40 million, the 11,900-acre property, Seven Lakes Ranch, has been on the market since at least 2016, when it was listed for $55 million. Last year, that was trimmed just a bit—down to $50 million.

After this month’s cut, the ranch is even more enticing. For a deep-pocketed buyer in search of a large parcel of land, the most recent price slice represents a 27% reduction from the 2016 asking price.

The prodigious parcel is nestled in Colorado’s White River Valley in the Flat Tops mountain region. The main house on the property has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and measures in at 13,907 square feet. Constructed from logs, the home offers oodles of rustic appeal.

Listing details describe the property as “one of the finest trophy big game hunting and fishing ranches in Colorado.”

Outdoor recreation options abound, and the pristine surroundings will appeal to anyone who wants to be surrounded by natural beauty.

For anglers, the property straddles nearly 2 miles of the White River, which is known for its trout. Secluded and private, public wilderness borders the land on each side of the valley.

For a host who loves to entertain, there are a number of detached cabins near the main lodge to house friends and family.

The ranch also comes with ample space for staff housing, a historic dance hall, equestrian facilities, a home theater, and a fitness center with a spa.

Located about 20 minutes from the town of Meeker in the western part of the Boulder State, the ranch is remote. It’s roughly a three-hour drive from the slopes of both Vail and Aspen.

Norman, 65, is a native of Australia who took the PGA by storm in the 1980s and ’90s. He won 20 PGA events and notched two British Open wins in 1986 and 1993. He now heads up Great White Shark Enterprises and has designed over 100 golf courses around the world.

Brian Smith with Hall and Hall Partners holds the listing.
