    Dis Repair Tenant Leaves with Rent Arrears & is Missing - Solicitor Continuing Action

    I am defending a dis repair case

    I expect to win as it doesn't have much substance - it started form when i issued an S21 eviction against the tenant

    However, the tenant built up some rent arrears and moved out

    The solicitor is saying that the tenant is still continuing with his case

    However, the tenants phone is off and we haven't spoken to him since, he isn't replying to emails neither

    Can there be a case without the tenant? I have a feeling the tenant has left the solicitor with owed fees and has cut contact with them too

    I'm thinking of asking the solicitors to provide me when the tenants new address and details, so i can write to him about the rent arrears

    Are they obliged to give me their new details, given the on going court case?

    Any tips would be most grateful!

    Is the tenant on legal aid or is Shelter funding the case?



    Freedom at the point of zero............

      I would do nothing until you hear from them regarding their claim.
      Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

        You could ask solicitor for a copy of his authority to act on tenant's behalf.
        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...
