    Interest on arrears

    I have a court hearing on 24 February for possession and a money judgment. The tenant has left the property but still owes money which I expect I will have to chase hard to get back. Assuming I am granted the money judgment am I able then to charge interest at a daily rate until it is paid? If so what is the rate?

    Thanks

    No interest is payable AFTER judgment unless the judgment is over £5000. You can charge interest up to and including the day of judgment at the current county court rate of 8%.

      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...

      Thank you. I will go for cleaning costs and will live in hope that the adjudicators may allow me something.

      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...
