    Costs of chasing monies owed

    If you decide to chase unpaid rent after eviction, ( having not served a section 8 ), approx what costs are involved.

    From court costs and a few stamps to anything

      I realise it's an open cheque book type of question, but initially what costs are involved to get it started

        Basically the court fee. Sliding scale according to the amount claimed.

        There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

          Initially not as bad as I thought, but I’m sure it can add up to quite a bit more in the end.
          why is it more expensive if you serve a section 8 then have to escalate it further?

            It's definitely worth an LBA today, probably court fees (surprisingly cheap - hope much are arrears) then see how it goes.

            Does debtor have assets or PAYE job? If neither, only worth it to ensure they get CCJ.

              I have been to court a few times and it hasn't been expensive. The time and inconvenience may be more significant than the £££.

              If you win, you should get costs awarded. No guarantee, of course, that they will be paid.

                OK, thanks for that, we're probably going to see what happens this month when rent is due, ( as per other thread we've served a valid section 21 notice this week after the boiler was replaced and gsc was issued ).
                If she pays a decent amount then perhaps we'll let it ride and see what happens, but if not then I think a LBA will be in order before going further.
                It's so difficult to way up what to do without costing a fortune to possibly recover, either diddly squat, or a piddling amount each month.
                Oh the joys of being a LL, lol.
