    The order will be based on what the courts think he can afford to pay, once his outgoings are assessed. He will also have to pay the fee for the order, so whatever you get back, provided that's covered it's got to be better than nowt.

    You can enquire free of the courts whether he already has an AofE in force; that will help tell you whether it's worth trying your hand, and if there is, yours can get tagged on.

    I've just had one granted for £450/month for a £1900 arrears debt, so I'm well chuffed; though my guy earns quite a bit more than yours admittedly.

    If I were you I'd be doing some detective work to find out where he works - eg try phoning and asking to speak to him if you think you know, or maybe tail him to work one morning!
    Search through rubbish often reveals alot. My tenant left behind local newspaper with several properties ringed. Four phone calls and I traced him.

    I think I know where the tenant works so am considering attachment order. I guess he only earns around £12k per annum so are they likely to award it based on this? (

    If you know where he works pay £65 and issue an Attachment of Earnings. How much you get per month will depend on what he earns and how much he makes the court believe he need to live with each month. Assess the figures carefully when you receive a copy of his income and expenditure!

    CCJ for £3350 - best way to recover money

    My tenant was given a CCJ for the outstanding rent monies owed to me of £3350 plus costs. I know a lot of people say it's impossible to get the money back but I want to try and keep trying until I get it! Has anyone had success and what have been the best ways?
    I think I know where the tenant works so am considering attachment order. I guess he only earns around £12k per annum so are they likely to award it based on this? (He is a single white male with no dependents).
    I have his National insurance number so hopefully this will help track him if he doesn' give me his new address when he leaves the property.

    I have a Tenant Couple who have informed me this week that they can not afford the rent this month. Naturally they have blamed this on the Coronavirus however they have paid their rent 1 week late often, sometimes longer so have struggled in the past.

    I kindly said I would help with a payment...

    My tenant is on rolling contract. Since 18/04 he has not paid the rent only paid a quarter of the owed rent recently. I am ready to serve him s21. Because he is hard to talk to and being dishonest to me. Does the s21 include the time for eviction? You might say 3moths but I will say 2 weeks whatso...

    It is not clear yet what is going to happen with evictions. The ban may be extended till the end of the year. It is becoming almost impossible to evict a tenant. The government will make a decision shortly....

    by Stew
    I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

    Apologies if I have posted this before, but I cannot find my original post, if I did indeed post!
    I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

    I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

    It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...
