    Thanks guys,

    Yes she will be going to the hearing on thursday.

    So if lets say for example the court agrees to 10 weeks of £43.50 on top of the £91 rent, and these are paid correctly and on time would the possession order be finished and void?

    If perhaps she fell into arrears again in a year or so could she still be evicted using the same possession order?

    Also would the ccj be removed from her credit file if all payments are made correctly and on time.


      PLEASE she must 'phone Shelter
      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...


        Depends on the conditions of the order, usually one will be that the tenant keeps up with ongoing payments. That means if she falls into arrears again the LL can go back to court and get possession quickly without needing to serve a new notice etc.

        I imagine you can ask for the CCJ to be recorded as satisfied (£15 I think), once the arrears are cleared. But once its on the credit file it stays there for 6 years unless it's later set-aside.
        I'm not a lawyer, what I say is the truth as I understand it. I offer no guarantee except good intentions.


          So my friend was a nervous wreck this morning. Had her hearing at 12.30 and called me to tell me its been adjourned (as the arrears are so little) for 2 months as to give her a chance to pay off the arrears without a possession order.

          She said she was excuse my french "Shitting herself" but the judge made her feel at ease.

          He even asked if she wanted to pay less per week off the arrears!

          Just one more question. Does this mean she has no ccj because no possession order was given?

          Thanks for your help guys. Just thought you would like to know the outcome.

            Thanks for updating the thread.
            No judgement has been made, so no County Court Judgement has been made.

            She should get some paperwork in a few days, so go and have a look at them.
            Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

              Sorry but I must reitterate that she DID provide all documents which were initially requested before both parties signed the lease. This new, rigid requirement for a utility bill only came a day before the agreed move-in date.

              This is not a case of a prospective tenant having no paper trail....

              My partner has recently signed a lease through a well known property agent in London.

              The lease was also signed by the landlord. References from current + previous employer, landlord, etc, and proof of address were requested before signing, and provided.

              Upon signing the lease...

              Firstly, she already provided the previous lease, along with a document from the municipality of Amsterdam stating that she was registered as living there. I paid the bills as we were living together, and she has closed her Dutch bank account (as is required when you are no longer a resident). I'm sure...

              No bank statements with the old address on? These are available freely from your online account, or previous utility bills, council tax bills etc. I find it difficult to accept that they are unable to provide something. I would have concerns if you were my prospective tenant. You need to provide the...

              When you put it like that I'm more inclined to edge towards the S21 route regardless. As much as part of me feels some compassion for the guy and doesn't want to lump more stress on top of someone who appears to be struggling already, as has been said before, none of us are acting as a charity.

              Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

              TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

              Thank you.

              My initial contact with the police was just a phone call to the local station. As I almost half expected they wouldn't give up much info, I didn't particularly push back when they said as much and I left it at that. A formal complaint might fill in a few blanks in the story but...

              A back door way into finding out what did happen (or more info than you have now), is to ask for a callback from the local PCSO who covers the beat area where the tenant lives (go online and start a live chat), he or she will know far more about your tenant that a faceless comms operator at HQ or anyone...

              Just because someone knocks on your door, even if it crescendos to them banging loudly on your door, it doesn’t mean you have to answer it or have to go and investigate.

              If the tenant suffers from mental health issues and the police were sent round because someone thought the tenant’s...

              From painful personal experience of this issue... You should formally contact the police, ask them why they broke the door down and ask for compensation. Their lawyer will then write to you with some information which may be useful for you to know (but not giving very much detail). I expect they'll...
