    property to be reposessed, tenent in situ

    I have a friend who's landlord has not been paying the mortgage, this has now been passed to the mortgage companies solictors who wrote to the tenant to tell him they were planning on applying to the courts for an order.

    Now he has contacted them for two exra months to find somewhere to live, which they have agreed too as long as his rent goes to them directly, so his eviction date is now 23/01/12

    But if they don't have an order to possess the property yet, are they the legal owners of the property? He is concerned that the owner will not receive rent which is legally due to her...

    Does everything sound above board.

    Yes. They will have a court order now if not soon, and your friend should pay the rent as instructed.
    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.
