    Not "in arrears". For ground 8 under s.8, in the case of a monthly rent, there must be at least two months' rent unpaid [i.e. not "in arrears"]. If month1's is unpaid, and month2's is not paid on the due date, L can- the very next day (when the rent's one month and one day in arrears)- proceed on the basis that two months' rent payments have fallen due and still remain unpaid.

    bad management

    doesnt it have to be 2 months outstanding

    further, she has been missing for months, no ones seen her

    should i still issue a section 8? shall i issue a section 21 aswell?

    Er, why did the rent arrears slide to this extent? As soon as one month's rent is unpaid, L should be on to T (failing which serve a s.8 Notice).

    Join NRLA and do courses on being a landlird:. Much cheaper than the alternative (lack of knowledge) in both time and money. Even with agent you remain responsible for everything (but may have a later claim against agent).

    Have you very carefully read your agreement with agent to find...

    You need to sue both of them, or just the tenant.
    If you sue the guarantor, they have a simple defence, in that you haven't exhausted your attempts to recover the money from the tenant.

    Which form are you using, you should be using the N1 form, or do it online, the max. you can claim in small £10k.

    Success depends on your claim and how much supporting evidence you. Does the guarantor own a property? If so, I would be inclined to go for them, there is much more success...

    I had a similar one - had a (non rent) business debt, did money claim online, person admitted debt and offered a stupid £5 a week which I refused. Had a physical hearing and was awarded the full amount. He did not pay - I put a charge on his house (he was a home owner) and went down the High Court...
