    Help find a debt recovery company

    Hi there
    Does anyone know of a reasonable and reputable debt collecion company that i can use for rental arrears please? I've looked online and it is hard to tell who is worth using and who isnt. Thanks for reading

    Do you have a court decision in your favour? Does tenant have any assets - anywhere in the world - or a PAYE job where you have employer details?

    What have you done to attempt recovery?

      hi yes i have a judgement order in place and yes they do have a house and a business. they've refused to pay the arrears. i've sent letters to try and reach an agreement for the debt to be paid even in instalments


        Check the own house (Land registry, £3) then if so get a charge placed against the property. Then you WILL eventually get your money, even if you have to wait until they die.

          hi there, when i meant they have a house i meant rented house not owned. do you have any other suggestions. can't the enforcement team pop over and take goods? i see it on tv programs or is this program for tv only but cannot be used in reality? does anyone know how i can get these bailiffs involved please. thank you

          • Contractual vs statutory periodic
            It seems to be generally accepted that a tenant can simply hand back the keys and leave on the final day of a fixed term tenancy without giving any notice to the landlord.

            The exception seems to be in the case of a contractual periodic tenancy rather than a statutory periodic one, where...

            A landlord's notice under a contractual periodic tenancy is limited to s8 and s21(4).
            So there's at least one absolute downside (and you have to use Form 6, which doesn't exactly lend itself to a notice under s21(4) only).

            The main issue (for me) is that it's not the norm, so you'd...

            s21 notice under a CPT must be under s21(4), rather than s21(1) if it were a fixed term. Not such a problem now, but some didn't want any bother getting the right end date on a s21 in the past. But that's for those that cared. Many landlords behaves as if fixed term mean the tenant must leave unless...

          • Managing a property from afar
            Hi all

            Does anyone manage a property that is not very close to where they live? How do they go about it? I.e.
            do you have a list of tradesmen and if something goes wrong you contact them to go and have a look at the problem?

            Also when the tenant leaves, I assume you...

            It’s entirely possible to self-manage a property from any distance, provided you know what you’re doing, follow the correct procedures and have a good knowledge of housing and landlord and tenant law.

            If you’re a novice, you can find yourself making costly mistakes regardless of how...

            Hi there, I’m hoping someone can help with some advice for me.

            My husband and I are renting out our house in Scotland while we rent in England. We have a leasing agent and have prospective tenants. But with a catch.
            The occupants will be a couple but the lead tenant doesn’t...

            We had similar. Initially refused any kind of checks, and were adamant that no bad credit etc... They really wanted house, eventually agreed to her having a background check done... 7 CCJ's, she wasnt surprised but wasnt aware of all of them.

            Run a mile.

          • Electricity
            Having recently moved into a property I have discovered that the landlord has an electric cable running from the side of my home out to one of his buildings. This cable is linked to my electrical circuit board and I will be landed with the bill. I was not told about this before the tenancy. Can anyone...

            They are a charity with limited resources. Their helpline number is 0808 800 4444 but I have heard it's hard to get through. They focus on housing not electricity... (afaik..)

            However you mention dunno how you have been raiding issues but I strongly recommend you write (yes WRITE! - keep...
