    Recovering Rent Arrears

    What's the best way to recover rent arrears through the courts whilst the tenant is still in occupation? I don't wish to use Section 8 (8) as I have a notice for him to vacate already in place. However I'm concerned that if I don't sue him for the arrears now then he will vacate my property with a clean sheet and have no difficulty in renting again.

    No reason why you should not serve a Court claim now.

      I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

      Apologies if I have posted this before, but I cannot find my original post, if I did indeed post!
      I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

      I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

      It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

      I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...

      Hi

      My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
      I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

      Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

      The tenant should produce evidence that he is not paying rent due to coronavirus. Also it does not mean he should continue living in the property forever and not pay rent due to coronavirus

      I allow dogs in our holiday let and residential houses - but I like dogs which I think plays a part in the decision!
