    I have received the judgement order but not payment

    I have received the judgement order regarding a claim. However, the letting agent (with sole director) hasn't paid yet and even don't respond to my email. I am thinking to apply for the judgement order. Does anyone have any similar experience or any advice?

    Judgement is the easy bit. Collecting is often tougher.

    In what name (letting agency, human director, whatever.. ) is judgement against? What assets do they (agency, human, whatever..) have please?

    By sole director do we take it agency is a company?

    If judgement is against Dodgy Bloke ltd but the company has no assets... not looking promising

      The judgement is against the letting agent. Basically, it is a small company with sole director managing short-term lettings.
      Presumably the person would try to avoid the payment anyway. I am thinking to apply for order company to attend court for questioning and would know things like bank account/balances/any assets etc

        If you know their bank account details you can apply to the bank for settlement.
        I did this once after suing some bailiffs - they were pretty gutted to not be on the recieving end for a change !!

          The judgement debtor is the letting agent and officer would be the person. I only know the person's bank account details but not the bank account details for the letting agent. Would that be helpful or has to be the company account?

            If the judgement is against a ltd company then the account would need to be in that name, I don't think you can go after a director , but I might be wrong. ...

              Unless director was named as debtor on judgement you have no claim against him. You have to try to recover ££ from company, not human.

              I can forsee the future. Company will close down, no assets, start again next day same address, similar name.

                  theartfullodger,

                  The company can close down with debt? I don't understand why that is allowed.

                    Basic capitalism... Write to your MP. (Just as human with no assets can declare themselves bankrupt, but think that costs £650-ish)

                    Can I please check, the judgement is against the ltd company only, no humans named?

                    Did nobody (you, solicitor..) check company assets ?

                      The claim was against the limited company and the person is the sole director. In the judgement order, it didn't say who would pay.

                      Application to check company assets has been made. The company is very bad registered at Company House with account overdue even over 6 months already. The person has several other companies registered doing similar business. I doubt I would get the money back but this type of business running should be noticed and punished.

                      • The letting agent charged me more that we have agreed before
                        by Timonthy
                        My letting agent helped me to look for furniture package few months ago. Before I agreed to purchase the furniture package, the agent sent me the quotation. As I agreed with the items and the price in the quotation, I transferred money and agreed him to purchase that package.

                        They are required to be registered with a redress scheme, so that is probably your next port of call. You have to take it up with the agent first (as you have), but if they do not respond within a given period of time you can escalate it.

                        First of all, check which redress scheme they are...

                        I totally agree with your view.

                        In fact, the letting agent has already charged me from my rent income, and I knew it after I checked the statement.

                        As I discussed these issues with my letting agent, they just replied that they would look into the matters.

                        I will...

                        Agents who do tenant find only are incentivised to find the worst tenants.

                        Someone selling you a service can't charge more than you have agreed to pay for it without your agreement.
                        "Forgetting to tell you" isn't a valid reason, and, broadly speaking, it's their oversight and should be their cost.

                        Your responsibilities don't go away if you hand the property to an agent. If you are renting rooms out then it would be classed as an HMO and you need to have fulfilled the compliance aspects prior to renting it out as such with the local council's approval.

                        HMO's require more work than...
