    Interest on arrears

    My tenancy agreement says that the tenant is liable for interest at the statutory rate, and the judge has awarded me a payment from the tenant which includes interest. The tenant did not turn up in court. I am applying for an attachment of earnings using form N446.

    I phoned the court to ask if I needed to pay any more money and the clerk said I didn't. She also said I couldn't claim Litigant in Person fees, interest or solicitors fees above something like £2.60. So if I'd employed a solicitor I would have to stand the solicitors fees. I said that that can't be right becasue the person who is in the wrong is getting an interest free loan.

    Has anyone else experienced the same?

    I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

    I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

    I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

    It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

    I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...

    My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
    I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

    Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

    The tenant should produce evidence that he is not paying rent due to coronavirus. Also it does not mean he should continue living in the property forever and not pay rent due to coronavirus

    I allow dogs in our holiday let and residential houses - but I like dogs which I think plays a part in the decision!
