    Ccj

    one of my tenants has left without paying their rent

    i have her solicitors details

    can i chase her rent by writing to her solicitor as i dont know her future address

    can i get a CCJ on her? someone told me the CCJ will be on her name at the property she was at! is this true? or will the CCJ remain with her wherever she goes until she pays her rent arrears?

    thanks

    Firstly, there is no DUTY on a solicitor to reveal his client's current address. There is also no duty to accept service of any document by the solicitor for his client. You could try asking them if they will forward a letter from you to their client but its doubful they will in a debt-collection situation.

    The CCJ remains listed for 6 years at the property at which you sue her, or another property which she lists as one she is living at if you serve on the old address and she gets it forwarded to her new address and subsequently loses the claim you make against her.
    It does not follow the debtor around otherwise.

      out of interest, would anyone on landlord zone bother to chase someone for lost rent after they have left their property?

      is it worth it?

        In principle yes - but it depends on a combination of many factors such as how much they owe; whether you know their whereabouts and if not, how hard/expensive it will be to locate them; and their actual ability to pay once you've caught up with them.

          If they are not working and have no savings or shares that can be siezed - its throwing good money after bad.

          If they are employed - attach earnings. If they subsequently own a property, Charging Order and potentially Order for Sale.

          No point in throwing good money after bad - main thing is to get them out of your house if they are not paying rent.

            Landlords are actually getting £800 as there is a massive demand in the area as very few properties available for rent, the market has gone crazy, £1200 for a 3 bed semi in Liverpool....

What is the maximum i could raise the rent at the...

            This is the advice I got from a lawyer when I showed them the leasehold agreement FYI - (I was asking whether I was permitted to receive air b n b guests under the terms)
            The lease terms are ambiguous .

            Hi! I would like to rent out the flat I own on a short-term 2 month basis. My freeholder permits me to have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement so I would like to get one in place for my guest and then buy appropriate landlord insurance to cover me for public liability, personal injury, damage to...

            Is the £800 what they are being advertised for or what LL's are actually getting?

            by Kape65
            Thanks, that sounds hopeful, so I'm guessing their is no way they can just abolish it overnight. I have a property that will not make the proposed C grade so I am going to sell it now because I can see it becoming a major headache when S21 is gone. I was hoping not to issue notice before Christmas if...

            by Kape65
            I know that abolishing Section 21 is not yet a done deal but is looking likely. Do we know when the governments white paper is likely to show it's face and how long after that before we will not be able to use Section 21 ( a crystal ball question I know ). I'm hoping to repossess at least one more property...

            Thankyou - I didnt realise that there was this degree of subjectivity in place regarding what an ASL was or wasn't. Government guidance on ASL's doesn't say anything about a minimum period and so I assumed there wasn't one.

            Regarding my leasehold agreement, it says:

            Hello all,

            As an amateur landlord, I have made quite a big mistake.

            I’ve let a house to a limited company and used an AST template from the Law Society, not realising that the document is not valid for use with companies.

            All was well until March this year when...
