    When does tenant owe 2 months rent?

    Hi

    I was wondering if any of you wonderful people would be able to clear this one up for me as I have not managed to find anything on this forum of a similar nature?!

    The rent is £425 payable on 13th of the month. Outstanding rent as at 13th Feb was £305 (as they have been paying a little extra each month to catch up). S21 has been served to terminate AST on 12th May, so they have decided not to pay the rent due on 13th March surprise surprise, which of course now makes them £730 in arrears. Are you with me so far?

    Now, they are HB claimants so I know we can have the payments paid directly to us when they are 2 months in arrears.

    So, my question is, when do they become 2 months in arrears? Will it be on 13th April when they don't paid the rent due and will then be £1155 in arrears, or is it next week as this will be 8 weeks overdue when working it out on a daily method?

    Thanks in advance

    You might want to clarify with your particular local authority but in Oldham they will pay direct after 8 weeks arrears (which is slightly less than 2mths). Mind you, it can then take them another month to actually get a payment out to you! You might find it useful to create a spreadsheet which works on the basis of weekly rent paid in arrears to know exactly when the eight weeks will have passed. That's what I did. I then completed the necessary 'arrears pay direct form' and forwarded it to the authority along with a copy of the spreadsheet.

    That worked for me. At the time the hb department made the first cheque payment I was owed £1200+ in rent and received a cheque for almost £1k as they pay fortnightly in arrears in Oldham.

    Hope that info helps.

    Kind Regards

      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.

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,...
