    LBA advice

    hi all,

    i'm not very good to when it comes to writing out formal letters so would be grateful for any input.
    i'd like to send the letter for demand for payment of outstanding rent as soon as i have a date for the baliffs.

    is the following ok?

    Dear Tenants from hell (All 5 tenants will be named here)
    You now owe total of £x in unpaid rent and this Debt remains outstanding despite my frequent verbal requests for payment on a 1-2-1 basis, over the phone and text messages.
    I hereby demand that payment of the full amount of the Debt be paid within 14 days from the date of this letter into the following account:

    Mr x
    Bank: x
    Sort Code: x
    Account Number: x

    Please note that if I have to commence legal proceedings in order to secure repayment of the debt owing, this letter will be tendered in court as evidence of your failure to attempt to resolve this matter. You will be liable for any court costs, solicitor fees and any other legal costs that will be used in pursuing the owing debt. Further, a copy of this letter will be posted by recorded delivery to the local homeless department stating that reason for eviction was due to non-payment of rent which will render yourself as being made intentionally homeless.

    I refer you to the Practice Direction (Pre-Action Protocols) in particular paragraph 15 and the sanctions for non compliance. You can find these on the Ministry of Justice website at:
    http://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/pro...action_conduct

    Please be advised that failure to pay will ultimately result in a County Court Judgement against all 5 tenants.

    For your record, I have attached schedule of late payments.

    Yours Sincerely

    You need to remove the threats, as they will not look good in court.


    After your tenancy, which ended recently, you have rent arrears of £x (???Plus the court fees and bailiff costs and any damage - what about the deposit?????)

    This debt remains outstanding despite my frequent requests for payment face to face, over the phone and via text message.

    I require payment of the full amount of the debt within 14 days from the date of this letter.

    If you wish to pay by bank transfer, please use the following details.

    Mr x
    Bank: x
    Sort Code: x
    Account Number: x

    You can post a cheque to:

    If the debt is not paid, I reserve the right to take legal action without further notice. As you are joint tenants and each liable for the entire debt, the action will be against you all jointly.


    I have attached a schedule of the amounts you owe.

    Yours Sincerely
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        Simply serve S8, all relevant grounds.

        Calm, polite letters look better in court.

            I presume you mean s21 claim. Yeah, s8g10 may be served if only 1p is underpaid for 1day. Don't take to court but tenant might take hint for price of stamp

                Check s21 with mark prichard's checker.

                Proceed to court on s21 expiry to evict.

                  s21 is only valid for 6 months, inc the reg 2 month period.

He moved out 6 months later to live with another woman, but continued to pay half the rent until the lease finished. I have messages from him saying he did not want his deposit...

                    This was a joint T, when any remaining deposit should have been paid to 'lead T' for onward distribution.
                    I might suggest ex b/f may like to sue me for his share of remaining deposit, if I did not want to reimburse him 900. quid.

                    Can anybody help please. I own a flat that is fully managed by a letting agency I’ve dealt with for 12 years. I received a letter from a debt collection agency asking me to ring them. I phoned them today and have found out there is an outstanding bill (which has been sold to the debt collection agency)...

                    Ask B Gas for copy of who signed signed the supply Contract & date.
                    Supply B Gas with copy of T dated AST and meter readings.
                    You are liable for any unsubstaniated void periods. Ts were aware of your lack of experience.

                    Hi all,

                    I hope I chose the relevant forum to post my query to - please forgive me and correct me if I am wrong.

                    My rental flat's (one of 22 'executive-style' flats in a 2-block development built in 1999) boiler stopped serving hot water to my tenants a week ago. I had a boiler...

                    You are unlikely to get permission for a hole in the wall sooner than you can get a roofer to replace the roof vent.

                    Thanks for the replies. The letting agent has said they absolutely did not put the bill in my name. It seems as if the previous tenant has put the bill in my name (from the tenancy agreement) including their arrears, which is why the bill is high for an empty flat for one month. Surely this is frau...

                    I moved in a flat last Tuesday. I found the fridge is not cool enough but the freezer works well. However, on Saturday the fridge/freezer didn't work. Foods in freezer began to thaw. The shelf in freezer is much warmer than the other part.

                    I contacted with the agency and they said I should...

                    If it is on the inventory and there is nothing to say that the T is responsible, then I would say it is the LL's responsibility.

                    Personally I have only ever provided fridges and freezers on the basis that if they break, then the T repairs and the T can then take it away with them.

                    Hi All

                    Our tenants were given notice and we went to court to regain possession. This has been granted by the County Court and she was supposed to leave ysterday. While I believe the tenants have moved out, I also believe there are still a few odd belongings there. At what point can I (or...
