  • Can someone explain what MCOL mean in their letter

    I applied for rent arrears from tenants via MCOL. Tenants completed defence forms and appeared to offer £100 a month (form wasn't completed fully) but didn't accept they owed the full amount. I completed N225 and requested that they pay the full amount outstanding including court courts and asked that I receive it via an attachment of earnings at a rate of £100 per month.

    I have today received a one line letter from MCOL stating "The judgements of 11th March 2010 stand payable forthwith". I can't see anything that is dated 11th March and don't understand what it means. My forms are returned to me and there is attached a form entitled "BC15 and BC22 determinations". It now shows at the bottom Defendant's offer at £10 and Claimant's request £100.

    Anyone any idea what this means. Have the Court decided the Defendant only needs to pay me £10 instead of the £100 they offered.

    Without sight of the paperwork its impossible to answer your question. It is possible that although the original judgment was a forthwith (immediately) one, the debtor might have applied for a determination of instalments which is done by a higher officer at the court without a hearing.

    If this has happened, then it looks like the order is altered on determination to £10 a month. But you can object to the determination.

    Phone the relevant court, quote the case number and ask them on Monday.

      i need some advise on my situation in regards to this flat offered to me and my partner. We viewed a flat which was in an old office block which had been converted into service apartments and then refurbished into flats.

      Couldn't agree more. How shortsighted. Unless they assume a tenant would leave with no notice and no forwarding address...

      Going back to the OP.

      This makes zero sense. Why would the LA/LL want a notice to quit from a tenant who they don't otherwise have a problem with. The longer until the tenant provide the notice, the longer the tenant is liable for rent. The notice period given now say, or given a month...

    • Discussion - GDPR and implications on landlords
      I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

      I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...
