    collection of post

    After court order ts moved out 4 days ago. Now they want to come and collect their post. They owe 9 months arrears.
    Can I refuse to give them their mail or
    Or be difficult in giving it ir asking for some of the arrears to be paid?

    Offer to forward anything to their new address..: you want their new address...
    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...

      You can't hold onto their mail.

      As above, you can forward it, or return it to sender.
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

        No, you could try charge a "reasonable administration charge" which covers you having to go get them and cost of postage etc.. but that's about it.

        Do tenant no favours - Return to Sender and move on.

        If you could get their new address then that would be great, if its a tenant from hell im sure they will give a friends address to collect it.

          Tell them to do what every one else does, and have post redirected
          for 6 months at cost of £ 26. Takes 8 days from doing it on line.

          Tell them that for £26, plus £ 10 for stamps and 6 large envelopes,
          you will forward their mail.

          Nothing other than that should be offered.

          R.a.M.

            I suggested that I forward their mail and they gave me a baloney that they are homeless and dont have a address to give me. Surprise surprise!

            They want to meet up and collect the mail personally on friday. I am actually away on holiday but have not told them this. Will do now.

            Its not my intention to hold on to the mail but I dont want to bend over backwards to help them.

              over backwards to help them.
              So they are sleeping on a park bench ? I think not.

              you need a forwarding address ( eventualy ) as they have to receive the
              eventual court summons, re unpaid rent.

              They have mothers, fathers, aunts, cousins , toforward mail to !

              But beware, they could have asked for credit cards in your name,
              at the address ( it DOES happen ) so why are they so hell bent on
              the mail. They have, what, say £ 4000 unpaid rent, so they CAN
              afford to redirect their mail, no question about it.

              Also, look closely at the mail, let the dog open it by accident,
              return to sender saying, opened in error, but came to my address, and I own the property.
              And you may be surprised at what you find they have done.

              No comments about opening mail, as this have been covered 3 times
              on here, with tales of wo on debt collectors hounding the next
              tenants, The owner having bills and court orders against him, as the
              tenants used his name to obtain credit.

              Say no, they must get mail redirected with the £ 4000 they have saved.
              or give you £ 26 + 10 pre stamped envelopes, and you will forward it,
              and they can bring the £ 4000 + rent as well.

                ram
                its worse, they owe me 9k!
                the court has already issued a money judgement and eviction notice following which they left and they should have these.
                I was able to get the number plate of their car when they handed me the keys! is that any use in debt collection?

                    Yes, but at the moment, the car will be registered at YOUR address
                    the tenants were at.
                    And if they taxed it, mot'd it and insured it for a year recently, then
                    they don't have to do anything for a year till they have to change
                    their details.

                    In fact, they don't have to change their details now, as they can
                    leave the car registered at your address, m.o.t. received personaly,
                    and insurance document comes over the internet, so in theory
                    they never need to change the registered address, ever .

                    This internet thing is GOOD, you can be legal regarding car
                    documents, but illegal as to the real address the car stays at.

                    Next time you see them, out and about, follow them at a distance.

                      funny but sad state of affairs at the same time

                      I would love to find out where they work. They got a referencing done through an estate agent and I was asked to provide a reference from the landlords point of view. Is there anyway in which I could get from the referencing agency the name and address of where they work?

                          NO

                          Redirecting post does not cost anything,if you just cross out the address and write the new address with "please forward to" and pop it into a letter box next time you pass one....

                            Return it all to the sender, if you forward anything you may well be helping them to run up more debt at your property - no biggy, but why give them more money...
