Does a tenant have to abide by a tenancy agreement after eviction notice?

Hi all. Hope you're keeping safe and well.

Putting aside the current situation, if, for example, the tenancy agreement says "no pets" can a tenant be penalised in any way by bringing a pet, even if there is photographic proof, after an accelerated possession order has already been granted from a court?

Obligatory "asking for a friend" disclaimer lol


Thanks

if the pet were to do damage or infest property with fleas the landlord could pursue costs

assume no damage.

Or what about a term that says "rent must be paid on 1st otherwise 1% interest will be added per delayed date", and the rent is actually paid on 25th, can the interest be chased afterwards?

My question I guess is, can any term be legally enforceable once the eviction papers are granted from the court or is the agreement totally ended at this point?
You are 100% liable, period.
yes the tenancy terms are enforcable(where fair and valid) until the tenancy ends with the tenant vacating the property.

the landlord can request interest is applied on any amount owed through the court,and the court may enforce if it amount to 8% or less a year.
Of course.

Eviction notice; or not; you are STILL a legal tenant and have to comply with ANY covenants. An eviction notice isn't an automatic 'waiver' to a tenancy agreement. As to what 'extra' penalty could/would be imposed by the landlord is another matter. See @craigyhay 's nicely put comment to cover that one. It would probably only happen if the tenants 'faux-pas' were to cause further loss to the landlord.

"You" as in the tenant or "you" as in the landlord?

Also, do you have any citation to show that the agreement is still active? Because I read somewhere (but can't find it) that if the landlord agrees to a contract after the eviction notice then that means that the eviction process is nullified.
Even without any agreement, you are still 100% liable for any loss.

Both ways, a contract is extra on your statutory and common law rights.
Why would a landlord give you a new contract after an eviction order is issued, an eviction order is already a last resort?
Tenancy ends when occupancy ends. Tenancy agreement therefore is valid with both parties bound by it until that day.
not sure what you are asking. are you saying you have been evicted and so you are bringing a pet into the house now that you have received an eviction notice?
