    Tenants collect CCJ's. How to evict?

    Hello. Anyone out there advise me? My tenants are in arrears and rent is difficult to get each month when they were paying. Never in one amount. They already have a collection of CCJs - about £36,000. It is pointless going to court to get another. How can I get them out? There is a 3 year lease ending August 2013. They are ignoring all communication and (I find out later) know how to "play the game". So much for letting agents vetting. Thanks.

    Assuming the rent is not payable 4 weekly and at least 2 month rent is overdue immediately issue a section 8 notice on grounds 8,10 and 11. You'll be able to start eviction proceedings 14 days later.

    So much for letting agents vetting.
    If the tenant already had a string of CCJs at the time the agent referenced him and that fact was not made known to you, you surely can go after the agent for gross incompetence and negligence.

        Why did you (or the agent!) grant a lease of 3 years; it beggars belief? As jjlandlord says, I'd be going after the agent big time for lack of duty of care. He would already have had a letter from my solicitor informing him of legal action
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          Hi - haven't been on here for several years as we have been jogging along nicely.

          We have a small property which we rent out and the same tenants have been in there for nearly 6 years now. we have never increased the rent during that time. They are good tenants but I feel we ought to...

          Excessive if you want to keep good tenants.
          Reasonable if you want to risk losing them, looking for new tenants, and having a void....

          Hi This is my first post. The council has sent me as the landlord a letter (not a notice) saying it's inspected my property under The 2004 Housing Act and using the safely rating system have identified hazards that require my urgent attention, asking me to reply with written intentions of dealing the...

          You don't need an eviction company. There is plenty of help and advice here on Landlordzone with doing it yourself.

          Thank you for your comments. I talked to the council and they said that because it wasn't a formal notice my section 21 is still valid. The eviction company have said they may still try and use it as a defence. I will do the repairs asap. The property has bats in the eves so I can't fill all the...

          Two years since I've been on here … can't believe that! As per my original post our tenants have now been living there for almost 8 years. In that time I have only put their rent up once by 5%. Lately there have been two very similar properties to rent near the one we own and we are renting our...

        • Discrepancies between deposit scheme papers and contract
          JohnMcClane
          I am a lodger, I asked for my deposit to be protected and the landlord agreed,

          However, I have noticed the following discrepancies between my contract, the papers given to me by the landlord and the certificate given to me from DPS:

          - The contract states that I take tenancy...

          It may be that you are a tenant and not a lodger (but I do not have sufficient knowledge of this area).

          I would suggest that you don't need to worry about it unless and until you have deposit or other problems at the end of your occupation.

          Hi Everyone,

          I'd welcome your advice, I'm in the process of renting out a property and have been disappointed in the lack of interest from potential tenants, However, I've been approached by an EU National new to the UK ( 6 weeks ) and keen to rent the house. He is awaiting the arrival...

          That is how I see it, provided agreement is worded correctly:
          • Month 1: rent paid for months 1, 2 & 3;
          • Month 2: rent paid for month 4
          • Month 3: rent paid for month 5
          • Month 4: rent paid for month 6; tenant gives required 2 months' notice
          • Month 5: no rent paid
          • Month 6: no rent paid.
          However,...
