    How to obtain court fees awarded to LL from Court

    A little frustrated, I have successful got rid of the T, but the courts awarded me the court fees, how do you enforce this or get this money, as I thought you put in a small claims, which I did just got a letter back under CPR 3.14(2) saying that the case is rejected. What is the process on getting your money back from a T in regards to court fees?

    Out of interest was this S8 or S21?

    Usually costs are added to any rent debt and often it is agreed by order that ex- tenant will pay £?? per month or a lump sum.
    Agree with what you say on small claims as well.
    Maybe someone else has and idea?

    Freedom at the point of zero............


      You have the court decision (well done). 1st enforce the CCJ to make life more realistic for this person.

      Then it's down to you to collect, the court doesn't do it. Either "attachment of earnings" from their PAYE payslip job or get a charge on ony property they own. You've 6 years to collect. Be patient, diligent & cunning!
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


        It was via S21, how do you enforce the CCJ?


          A of e, third party debt order, or bailiff.


            You complete Form N316 and pay £50.00 when you submit it.
            The tenant is required to attend a court and give details of their income and assets.
            Some notes on the process here -

            I've never actually done this, so it would be great if someone with actual experience of the process chipped in!
            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).

              The H M Government recommended flat size for a 1 bed household is 39sq metres. Does this fit that sizing? And with a garden which is a bonus. Is this in London?...

              A rented flat with a toilet (of course) and basin next to the kitchen, and a bedroom with a quite small en suite - shower/basin/rail for towel ... Is this acceptable in a flat - with no additional separate bathroom?

              Flat consists of 1 bedroom en suite, hallway, lounge,...

              \Of course the tenant has a choice.
              The tenant may say the property was dirty when he/she moved in. Was an inventory carried out before move in documenting the state of the premises? The tenant could specify his own cleaner or do it himself/herself or could refute the claim entirely and make...

              I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

              Interesting. Thanks ash72. I'm looking forwards to seeing your progress. I'm not sure if it is an offence to not have the registration document V5C not showing the correct address of T. It would seem T may have given the eviction address at point of purchase and that would have been after eviction...

              Just thought I'd inform others of my current situation, back in 2018 I evicted a non-paying Tenant (prior to Covid) I got 2 CCJ's against the person, 1 was from the possession which awarded me the court fees and the a 2nd when I claimed for the rent arrears and damage to the property. I have now instructed...

              Thanks for sharing your experience. Hopefully the two CCJ served as warning to any future landlords who did their due diligence.

              I think the DVLA can find you if you don’t update your address with them…just saying.

              Why haven't you raised this with the LL or the agent, would seem the logical thing to do in this situation. Advice for both LL and T's if you have any doubts walk away.........

              A separate room toilet and hand basin, next to the kitchen. The bedroom has a window, a small step up to a en-suite shower, which also has a ventilator inside.

              I've attached a simple sketch of the layout for you all to see (good idea), apologies for the drawing, my wife's the artist...
