    tenant leaving and rent owed

    Tenant is due to leave in about a week, they owe a £1 under 2 months rent, how do I go about getting this rent owed to me?, presumably I will I have to go to court, if so any advice on how and what I need to do?

    Issue a Small Claim against them - you may as well wait until they've vacated so you have an exact figure for the debt, taking into account any deposit/damage to the property.

    You'll need to find out where they will be living in order to get their new address for the paperwork. (If you don't know, but you do know when they are leaving, you might want to consider turning detective and surreptiously tailing them...)

      Thanks for that, what about the deposit held in the DPS?, what happens to that?, Do I need to make a claim from that for rent owed?

      • Sole tenancy when moving in with partner
        miemie
        Hi,

        I've had a search through and found some similar questions, but none that quite cover everything I want to know. My current tenancy (sole tenancy) is now on a rolling basis and I'm looking to move into a new property with my partner. I will pass all referencing checks etc but it's unlikely...

        Then if it were me and I were satidfied with your financial position, then I would put you both on the tenancy: more-certain legal position regarding occupiers, and I could chase you for money if necessary....

      • Deductions from tenancy deposit
        nick_noal
        Hi folks,

        I have just had a tenant move out of one of my properties and I have conducted the move out inspection. There is no major damage in the property and everything is in working condition. However the tenant has a young child and the decorative order of the property has been affected...

      • Does deposit cover rent?
        Lawcruncher
        A tenancy agreement contains the following provision:

        The landlord may make reasonable deductions from the deposit for any damage or costs incurred, or as provision for unsettled bills

        Does that cover rent? I do not think it does since rent is not any of damage, costs or an...

        That is probably meaningless for ASTs now that there is mandatory deposit protection....

      • Change in offer letter conditions
        Amnesiac
        Hi all

        I signed an offer letter in order for the agency to submit my offer to the landlord of a property on the market for renting.

        The offer letter states that the deposit will be protected under the agency's membership of the deposit scheme.
        I have now received a communication...

        There seems to be 2 different deposits here.

        The tenancy deposit is to cover any damage to the property at the end of the tenancy and has to be protected by law, and it is to your advantage if that is done by the LL rather by the agent. (For various reasons).

        Any holding deposit...

        No I don't think that's right unless there is evidence to suggest the landlord is not going to protect the deposit. It is possible he favours a scheme the letting agents don't use and so he does the admin protection himself. Is it materially changing the terms of the contract? I'm not sure it is, although...

      • tenant with 3 kids
        abc777uu
        Hi,
        My current tenant has 2 kids and living in my 2 bed flat.
        the kids are a 5 years old girl and a 6 months old baby boy.
        recently, I came to know that the tenant’s wife is pregnant.
        by law, can they stay in 2 bed flat with 3 kids?

        Please advise.
        Thanks...
