    Can further/additional MCoL's be issued?

    I have asked this question within another thread, but rather than hijack that thread I have decided to as the question on specific thread instead. That thread related to when a MCoL should be issued and the general response was when the tenancy and occupation had ended.

    However , I would like to ask, why cant a subsequent MCoL be issued - is there anything that says only one MCoL can be issued against a particular tenant? I envisage adding something in a pre action letter that gives the debtor 14 days to pay, but highlights that the debt is escalating on a daily basis

    as an example

    current debt stands at xxxxx

    should the debt not be settled immediately, then the debt will rise by xxxx per day based on rent @ xxxx per day for each day the property continues to be occupied by yourselves until the debt is settled in full.


    I think that meets the requirement of pre action of clearly informing the debtor of how much they owe.

    alternatively could a MCoL be initiated, relating to how much is owed up to a certain point and then a subsequent one issued for the outstanding, if any, monies, on the basis that the initial debt was settled in full, but now further debts have arisen?

    I understand that a section 8 SHOULD also be issued, which delivers the same outcome. I have issued a Section 21 but am also happy to further issue a section 8 and then decide which one to pursue

    any advice or information (confirmation of subsequent MCoL's being issued etc would be helpful)

    You would be failing to mitigate your legal costs, so there might be a risk of costs being awarded against you in the subsequent claims.

    • When to call end to tenancy
      Slepewalker
      Thoughts from experienced landlords would be appreciated. The tenancy is now periodic. The house is a modern build, in good repair and decoration.


      Tenants are slow in reporting maintenance issues or, conversely, needy. We have replaced a blown light bulb as tenants did not know how...

      A tenant moved in Oct 2015 and vacated on 29th April. (I have 6 other properties I let just for context). This...

      exactlly where is the deposit now ? in the scheme ? or in your pocket ?

      this doesnt make sense to me --

      This particular one the letting agent I use always put the deposit into a scheme themselves and when tenant vacated in 2015 they returned as there were arrears and damages...

      craig2222
      Hi I'm thinking about buying a tenanted property.Is there anything I should be weary of ? .This would be my 4th and would bring my total income to about 48000 minus mortgage interest etc.Im presuming the new tax rules would not affect me as I would still be in the basic tax bracket ?

      if there is a tenant in there - beware
      is there some reason why the property is being sold ? is this a bad tenant ect ?
      not sure if you would be in the basic tax bracket but check that out - in a basic tax and earn 9,000 pounds plus my rental income 4000 pounds minus repairs/mortgage and...
