    CCJ Register

    A court order for payment of rent arrears has been awarded to me by the court as part of a Possession Order. It would seem logical to me that the order is automatically logged on the register of CCJs, but apparently this does not happen. How to get this court order onto the CCJ register and how can I then check if the order has been put on the CCJ register?

    How long agao was it granted? There could be a backlog at the court.

    Check here to see if it would be recorded at all!


      Check here;

      Judgements (usually) need to be enforced to go on the register;

        The possession order was granted on 22nd January 2019, but
        according to the Trustonline website search,
        hasn't appeared on the register . Looking at the government web site, it would appear I can do a Money Claim Online (MCOL) which I will try next.


          You need to enforce the order you have: an examination of the debtor in court is usually a good start (and will result in the registration of the existing judgment). It is iniquitous that a money judgment obtained as part of possession proceedings isn't registered like most other judgments - but those are the rules.

            Now that LL can't charge for on-boarding fees such as inventory and credit checks, how do you handle these fees?
            Do you absorb them? increase the rent? Ask tenants to turn up with their own credit checks in hand?

            I found asking potential tenants to pay a (reasonable) fee for a credit...

            They have:

            That's also a "Prohibited Payment"
            You can't require a tenant to pay a 3rd party or enter into a contract with a 3rd party.

            Which I think rules out asking them to turn up with a credit report of their own.
            Plus, the credit report would...

            Our tenants have been in our rental for nearly 4 years without issue. The original fixed term tenancy agreement gave way to a periodic tenancy. The tenants have been good, if rather untidy!

            Over the weekend while performing some maintenance while the tenants were away on holiday for a...

            That's not quite correct.
            The knowledge without action might impact any damages in a legal claim against the tenant, but it doesn't change the terms of the contract or permit the breach.

            In reality, the landlord has seen some damage, some pet food and something that might be droppings....

            hello I have been in my rented property for 10 years now and the carpets are freying (I’ve resorted to gaffa tape) they are coming away at every door tred and even at the stairs. I have contacted the letting agent several times and they don’t even get back to me! Am I responsible for getting new...

            Most carpets won't last more than 10 years and the landlord should replace them (as a matter of routine, really).
            It doesn't matter if the rent has increased or not.

            Legally the position is vague, because carpets are seen as a furnishing (oddly).

            I'm just wondering if letting agents can with hold tenant references if I try and obtain a reference about a potential tenant myself aswell as getting a reference company to so the Same? I currently pay someone to do the referencing however for the 'previous landlord/agent' reference...

            Depends on what the tenant said up front to explain it (unless they're very young).

            Young people typically don't have much history that's positive for credit rating.
            My son has a middling credit rating, but that's because he doesn't have any credit to speak of.

            If someone...

            What if you charge at cost (which is what I do anyway?) ie no profit for me and tenant pays the company themselves

            Presumably, the only problem arises if someone you charged a fee to becomes a tenant? I wonder if you could reimburse the successful applicant, but not the others?
