    Sorry for being ignorant but what do you mean exacty?

      I guess that he meant that you lacked proper evidence sufficient to set-out the financial position.
      I believe that the Court will want full details. Why not do a tabulation showing:
      a. down left side, each date on which rent fell due and the amount falling due; and
      b. down right side, each date on which a payment was made and the amount paid (plus the resultant credit or debit figure c/f)?

        I have done this now (with photocopies of the bank paying in book as evidence). I need to send one copy to the court and one to the tenant within 7 days. Then tenant has 14 days to accept that rent statement or not and provide his version.

        1. If the tenants contests the rent statement and has no proof of how mch he actually gave by cash, and I have proof via my paying in book, how does the judge decide how much has been paid?

        2. What happens after the full 21 days have elapsed? Do I automatically get another hearing date sent? by post? (I used PCOL)?

          Judge will look for proof - the standard of proof is, I believe, "balance of probabilities".

          The hearing date will be sent in due course.
