    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.
