    Is a Court Order the same as a CCJ

    Hi everyone

    Unsurprisingly our tenants have failed to pay the rent owed and ordered by the courts during the possession hearing in January. They paid the equivalent of 1 installment (over 3 separate payments) and then nothing.

    We fortunately had a water-tight guarantor contract and have just settled for the majority of the money owed to us. However there is still money outstanding which we refused to write off as part of the settlement. While I have accepted we will never see this money, I would like a CCJ to be recorded against out tenants. How can we ensure the CCJ is applied or will the County Court Order suffice.

    Thank you

    You ask the court that issued the order to register it as it has not been satisfied.

    You can also ask the court (and pay a fee) to summon the debtor to court to agree how the rest will be paid.

    As far as I know, the same process is available from the possession judgement.
    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).

        Why didn't you get the remaining monies owed from the Guarantor? That way you don't need to chase the debt and you would then have the money.... just interested in knowing.

          We settled for a number of reasons. Primarily because we live abroad and therefore were dependent on a solicitor to represent us in court. Therefore the cost of persuing unpaid money was going to be approximately the same as the debt. We've written off the money but would like the CCJ recorded so our former tenants can't easily treat fair and reasonable LL in the same way they treated us.

            Hi all,

            I am currently in a tenant with a shared tenancy agreement of which the end date is approaching. I do not want to renew the contract but the rest of my flatmates do want to renew. I have given the letting agency notice well beforehand but they say I still have to pay £50 changing...

            Our LA recently (on 22/1 - 3 weeks after rent due date!) informed us that the tenant claims he notified them in December to advise that he was owed a lot of money and could not pay until this was received. No valid reason really, he lives hand to mouth and has repeatedly refused requests to set up a...

            Hi there, hoping for a bit of advice. Have scoured the gov.uk web pages but still unclear.

            Our tenants have defaulted on their rental payments. Due 1st Jan, and have advised they are unable to pay and can not confirm when they will be in a position to pay until at least mid-Feb!

            I would initiate a MCOL in addition to anything else. We presume they have sold their vehicle, stopped smoking and so on, or are they prioritising other things over the rent?

            Have they explained what the reason is - there may be some sensible reason, but if they haven't even tried to explain,...

            by Section20z
            If you don't have access to competent boiler engineers ( plus boiler not correctly installed) then you need some sort of boiler cover.
            Do you have a gas cert ?
            Leaving tenants without central heating in January is unacceptable....
