    Third party debt order (rent)- current address needed?

    Hello all

    My tenant was evicted end of August and I have no idea where he has moved to and I imagine he will not be signing with any utility companies as all the last ones seem to be in his girlfriends name.

    I have his bank account details and was going to issue a TPDO but in filling out the form it requires the tenants address to be entered - and of course I need to sign stating that I believe the details on the form to be the truth.

    I know that in order to issue a CCJ through moneyclaim you can get away with entering the tenants last known address (i.e. my flat), but does this same rule apply when issuing a TPDO? Otherwise will I have to wait until I find his new address?

    Thanks for any advice

      Thanks.

      I was going to just go ahead and issue the summons but put a note to the effect that the address was 'last known'. Failing any knowledgeable reply here that is what I'll do.

      Regards

        I would be interested in knowing the answer to this too, I currently have a CCJ against someone owing rent and was legally allowed to serve it at their place of work (a club) as I did not know their next place of residence. As they are self-employed I can not get attachment of earnings or call in the bailiffs (they can not take tools of trade from the club). The only option I have is a Third Party Debt Order too. But I would have the same issue about their last known residence being my property. Any ideas anyone....

          Hi,

          have you tried having a look at CAG, they cover lots on debts the answer may be there. If I have time later i'll have a scout through for you.

                    I can only echo the above comments, you have done what you need too, although to be honest i would have taken this action years ago, if you have never liked all the smoke then why put up with it for so long...... I would be very unhappy about all the smoke but i would seriously consider selling both...

                    Sympathy! Don't forget to advise tenants to pursue the agent's complaints process and when that process fails - (I can foresee the future) - to use the lettings agent redress scheme. See here advice from Mssrs Shelter..

                    Yes I agree with the above. Make sure you have complied with statutory requirements to ensure any s21 is valid.

                    You have been provided the advice by your legal council, if you want them out seek possession of the property (do it before S21 is removed), you need to now moved to the next stage which is put in an application for possession, then finally bailiffs. I would also stop complaining to the T's it is harassment,...

                    She wouldn't be able to rent it straight away anyway if you carry out referencing, (which you should), as this takes a few days. I get people to complete an application form too. A lot of prospective tenants are flaky on OR. Some promise to call you and you never hear from them again, even if you try...
