    online forms with court service

    Have landlords found the use of internet forms and claims a much easier way to gain evictions, issue documents and gain access to courts.

    Does it save much time and complication, and how do you find the online help on the site?

    Is it now easier and more likely for LL to take further action where they otherwise wouldnt?

    What do you think?
    Cheers.

    Whether they like it or not, landlords are sometimes obliged to take action against problem tenants. The online court service enables said landlord to download the required forms, complete them and submit them without the problems of getting them in the first place. It reduces the hassle of taking court action, but I doubt that it enables landlords to take action that they would otherwise have not considered doing.

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

      I have just gone down this road but found it much easier simply to phone the court, thus guaranteeing that I got the right papers, and physically taking them in where they were checked before I handed any money over.

      • Erroneous Change Of Occupancy Fee
        Sonofahod
        Hi There,

        I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

        Your information is severely deficient,
        Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
        You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
        Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

        andy967
        HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

        I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

        Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
