    Mesne profits

    can someone please explain what it actually means
    The house was repossessed on 24 oct. the Tenant is waiting for eviction date by the bailiff any day now. his housing benefit was suspended
    I quote:
    HB is issued to creditors in the form of Mesnes profits. and they want a clarification on who should receive it TT LL or Bank??????????

    Thanks

    Mesne profits is the receipt of payment for a service which is provided under duress. In this example, the receipt of rent from a tenant whom you are in the process of evicting.

      Thanks

      Does that mean that the rent is still payable to LL up to eviction day? cos HB people were not clear all they said was they need to know who is entitled to that money then they would pay it.

        Rent is payable up until the day a tenant actually leaves a property - I think this was your question!

          ok thanks cos when i called the HB they were not sure whether the Ll has any right to rent as the House is in the hand of the bank. they were not sure though.

            No .. I think the question was : who is it payable to ? the ex-LL ; or the Bank, who have now repossessed the property - that's my understanding anyway.

                Your contract - ie your AST is with the landlord as it has been signed by him or on his behalf by his agent. The rent due is thus owed to the landlord, against whom you are going to take action because of his breach of this contract. This is because bank are repossessing the property and evicting you. If the bank, or anybody else writes to you demanding that you pay them your rent instead, they are creating a new AST which gives you a further six months security of tenure, so you won't be hearing from anybody except your current landlord,his representatives agents or the administrators of his bankruptcy!

                P.P.

                    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...

                    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...

                    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
