    Make sure that judgement is entered if you claimed for rent as a debt, as this will make life very difficult for your ex-tenant if they want a loan or credit. Unfortunately in all probablility it won't get your money back
    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.

      If you have obtained a county court judgment, you can enforce the judgment yourself - a debt collector won't do anything extra to what you can DIY. See this link for various enforcement methods.

      Did you also obtain a possession order?

        Just to clarify, what I meant was that the requirement comes from the tenancy terms if they include it....

        I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

        or just work hard and hopefully take an early retirement.

        You can't predict the future. Things always go in cycle. They want to get rid of Section 21, so you may be unable to get your property back. You may end up working and subsidising your rentals....

        It wasn't so much tat as a ground for eviction for PRT is wanting to move into the property (for now). It was more that I'd put my heart and soul into making the property nice and it wasn't being cared for as well as I would have liked. I didn't like being at the mercy of a letting agent either particularly...

        I've had unoccupied insurance whilst I was overseas before. It was challenging finding an insurer as a non-UK resident but I did find one and the premium wasn't horrific. I did have to have someone go and check on the property every week as a condition of the insurance and luckily I had someone to...

        Just be careful with insurance. Empty properties are a "challenge"

        If i were in this position then i would do the same, there is far too much risk thesedays if you wish to move back into it, either accept the risk and rent is as it really is with an AST or leave it empty....

        That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

        The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.
        The OFT no longer exists and it's successor, the CMA, has withdrawn its advice about unfair terms...
