    Appearances can be deceptive: I had a tenant who'd always paid regularly in full, told me she was declaring bankrupt (trying to force ex- to sell marital home, dunno if that worked).

    Never missed a payment, I'd happily rent to her again.

    They have a CCJ for a reason, They don't pay! If you give them a tenancy despite the CCJ it defeats the point!

    Better/cheaper that it sits empty for a while than having problem tenants in it....

    I took on tenants with CCJ’s granted not so many in a short space of time and they had a guarantor, there has been no issue with payments and rent has also been paid on time, however, the tenants in mine like to complain a lot! Even about stuff that is not even broken. I have ended up spending a fortune in order to keep them happy! In hindsight I really should
    have waited until more applicants came in and not been so hasty to pick them, but you live and learn! I would advise listen to the above advice, I would say that many CCJs in such a short period of time is a red flag too. Good luck!

    I would not touch them with a barge pole. Act in hast and you will regret it.

    Unless they are the tenants I'm in the process of evicting steer clear!

    In fact, even if they are the tenants I'm evicting - stay well clear.

    Steer clear.

    It's possible to get a ccj and not know about it (or because you disputed something and lost).
    But three is deeply concerning.

    Prospective new Tenant has CCJ's

    Hi everyone, I'm new to being a landlord and a prospective tenants referencing has come back with 3 CCJ's - all last year.... Obviously a high risk... but wondering if others have taken the risk and it's worked out? Or would you steer completely clear??

    Thanks in advance!
