    how to make a ccj??

    ive issued my section 21, tenants are meant to be out by 21st June 2008.

    ive filled in the n5b form for accelerated procedure and im ready to proceed with this, if they are not out by 21st june 08

    question is they have not paid me for May, and i dont think they are going to pay me in June. its always been a constant battle to get the rent.

    So if im going ahead with the N5b as i need the house back asap. how can i claim for rent arrears. i want to issue a CCJ, can anybody kindly advise how i go about doing this. is there any forms i can fill in??

    cheers

        Does it matter if you do not have the tenant's forwarding address?

            Assuming that the tenant has left your premises at the time you issue the summons, I think you will need their new address. The Court has to contact them and ask for their reply to your summons.
            As I understand the system, the CCJ will apply to the ex-tenant at their new address and will undermine any efforts they may make to obtain credit at that address. The ex-tenants may wish to avoid this inconvenience and that might persuade them to pay arrears due to you.

              Problem is how to get a fowarding address. Communication with my tenants is non-existent at the moment. I am in the process of S21, have rent arrears and they will not pick up their phone or answer any letters sent.

                No forwarding address?

                What happens if the tenant does a runner after the summons has been served and you have no forwarding address. Presumably the legal situation becomes a lot more serious for them?

                  Unfortunately not. It just means that the system becomes ineffective.

                    so if you dont have their forwarding address the money claim or ccj you try to put against them is a waste of time??

                      Yes. The Court will need to have your ex-tenants address in order to communicate with them. There are agencies which will track people down but you would then be spending serious money for an uncertain return.

                          I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .

                          I do not intend to live at the property
                          Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

                          Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

                          House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant

                          That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

                          Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.

                          We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

                          The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

                          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...

                          Lawcruncher,

                          Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...
