    wlld claim on church going secretary!

    My tenant is claiming that my secretary is harrassing him for his rent arrears.

    It's a ridiculous claim as she's a church going charming young lady.

    How should i deal with his wild claim?

    I'm evicting him as he's over 8 weeks arrears. This is probably the reason for his claim i'd imagine.

    If he brings this up at the hearing, can it throw a spanner in the works?

    Doesnt he have to show proof of this wild claim?

    I wonder what the judge's reaction would be??

    If you charming church going secretary was, say, visiting his place if work every day demanding funds immediately I'd say he'd be right.

    HOW is she requesting payment, when and where?

    I used to have a fridge magnet: "Lord, protect me from your followers "
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        The only way I could see it might affect the possession claim would be if the T were to counterclaim for damages for unlawful harassment (because any damages awarded might off-set the amount of rent owing and unpaid to less than the requirements of ground 8). T couldn't just bring the matter up on the day of the hearing; he would have to counterclaim and submit evidence to you and the court in advance of the hearing.

        You do not have to 'deal' with the allegations unless they are formally made in the context of a court claim. If this happens, then you deny the allegations and put the claimant to strict proof of his allegations. If the T is likely to have any evidence, then you should seek legal advice in respect of drafting/presenting your defence.
