    G Claim – Damage + Rental Arears

    I am about to initiate a claim against a G, just had T move on who has not complied with the AST, created vast amount damage to my property and also in rental arrears, both AST+G agreements supported formally by G.

    T moves to another unknown address, private landlord, I suspect G has also supported a further such agreement.

    Prior to proceeding with a claim, advised legally to check G’s property title deeds as I am well aware G and partner have resided in their home for a vast number of years, to my horror/shock, G and partner do not own their property. In addition to this both G and partner have their own local businesses, partner’s business in particular huge, unfortunately both businesses are not registered ltd.

    The property is England/Wales and T/C’s of deposit fully complied with.

    Any guidance or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I absolutely love the use of bold here. Top marks.

    I would say "shock / horror"... myself.

    Good luck. Bet they have nice cars.


      Advice ? Next time credit & reference check guarantor and his property owning status BEFORE signing tenancy.

      Sue jointly both T & G. Get judgement. Then get money or enforce CCJ.

      Was guarantee enacted as a deed & witnessed?

      Yes, what cars do they have.
      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...


        The guarantors lack of property is something that would have stopped them being acceptable maybe, but doesn't end their liability.
        Start the process of recovering your debt and loss from both parties anyway.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


          Cars, yep very nice indeed.!



            Should I sue both T & G, Thas nothing, but G given the nature of husbands business must now be worth a fortune therefore I aimed originally to go for G only but welcome guidance

            G signed Deed of Guarantee and yes it was witnessed

            Cars very nice



              Thank you I will aim for both parties.!

                I think you have said above you only want a lodger. In this case with the layout described it is highly unlikely to be ruled one in a court. I think it would therefore be very unwise to issue a lodger s agreement to a tenant because say down the line you want to evict the tenant and they go to seek...

                I have a self contained annex, it has kitchen, shower, toilet and own entrance from the alleyway.
                when we bought our house it was already there. It was build with proper planning permission.
                How do I go about renting it out. Washing machine would have to be shares in the main house. ...

                As said above - This is a grey area. Probably It can not be a lodger s agreement just sharing a washing machine .It could be as Artful said common tenancy a non-assured short hold (little advantage since you have to evict through a court possession order and there is no accelerated process and you...

                I use cheap carpet over good underlay everywhere.

                I've done some searching and I see people asserting that the typical lifetime of a carpet is between 5 and 7 years. My question is, has this been established in court or is it just general knowledge?...

                I made two separate requests (one direct and one through a referencing company) for a landlord / agent reference for the same tenant at the same address.

                I got two replies two days apart.

                The first said they had always paid within 7 days of the payment date and that there had...

                The underlay is the key.
                At home I use cheap carpet (because of pets) over good underlay.

                Let’s be honest, most tenants don’t look after carpets as well as a homeowner. There is no point putting a quality in a rental when you can’t be sure how it will be looked after - a burn or a coffee / wine stain will ruin a decent carpet as well as a cheap one. I go for a bleach cleanable, mid...

                There was nothing about a default in the post I was responding to.
                The post said that there had been a hearing, so if there was a default, it would have to be some kind of procedural issue.
                If you don't turn up to defend a claim, there has to have been some kind of error in notification...
