    Personally use the county court baliffs, at least they get some time and notice as to when they HAVE to leave.

    Well they already refused the High Court. I wouldn't want to annoy the judge by applying again. I would just send the £121 fee for the ordinary bailiff for a warrant of possession.

    started a topic Fee for warrant.

    Fee for warrant.

    I'm currently trying to get rid of a tenant, I have the PO, I applied to use the High Court Bailiffs and had a letter back yesterday to say the application was refused.

    Anybody au fait with the latest fees that need to be sent in with a N325?

    The .gov website tells me.............

    __________________________________________________ _____

    Warrant type
    Issue a warrant of control (recovery of a sum of money) via Money Claims Online or County Court Business Centre £77
    Issue a warrant of control (recovery of a sum of money) in any other case £110
    Issue a warrant of delivery (for goods) £121
    Issue a warrant of possession (recovery of a property or land)
    Request a further attempt to execute a warrant at a new address, except where a warrant has been suspended

    __________________________________________________ _____

    However do I need to ask again to use the High Court geezers or will this warrant suffice?

    If it only allows me to use the normal bailiff then it might be another 2 months before they get around to it.

    Should I send this in with the £121 fee and hope for the best or add another application to use the high court guys.

    My head hurts!

    There's an order for rent recovery on the same order, should I add that on the warrant application or is that likely to muddy the water when it comes to getting granted, possession is the important thing here at the moment.

    A tenant who doesn't communicate well about arrears wouldn't be unusual.

    In normal times I would suggest serving notice and use MCOL for the arrears.
    But with six month's notice and a huge court backlog, that's less appropriate.
    The risk of the tenant either stopping paying...

    I have a tenant who got in arrears in the end of 2019 by 1.5 months because of work then continued to pay full rent until Covid. He couldn't work and was unfortunate to not get furlough or any government scheme other that UC so we arranged a reduced for 4 months. Now he is behind further...

    by boletus
    It's just one of many, many things that come up during a natural conversation with a prospective tenant. E.g "How are you paying the rent?"

    DD & SO are often used interchangeably. I've lost count of the amount of times I've explained it. A tenant knowing the difference wouldn't...

  • Direct Debit vs Standing Order
    by danwestgarth
    Has anyone any experience in collecting rent from tenants using Direct Debit opposed to Standing Order? From what i understand, with Direct Debit the payee (landlord) is in control, rather than the payor (tenant). JCould be a good way to minimize missed payments during covid-19. Does anyone know of...

    Those who are not paying anything are doing it deliberately or cannot be bothered to make arrangements. Where do they get money to eat, pay bills, pay council tax, pay for mobile phones, pay for petrol like my tenant ? The government provides a lot of support with rent. I have just looked in my area...

    Assuming the tenant really doesn't have any money, suing them for it is unlikely to do any good.

    If you serve notice, the tenant may simply stop paying rent - as they might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, and you've already shown that you intend to evict them.

    I would...

    I still don’t understand how he would be arguing about it if he accepts you wanting to set rent payments up by direct debit rather than by standing order...? Or if he accepts you wanting to set up a standing order rather than a direct debit? ​​​​​​

    Or how there is a red flag...

    the philosophy of being nice is not posited on it being reciprocated. In fact, historically some have argued cogently that it would cease to be such a philosophy if that were the case.

    But I digress.

    I disagree that the "Christmas bonus" idea is a better policy. In...

  • Do you regularly (or at all) increase rent for existing tenants?
    by ChrisDennison
    I would like to gauge your experience on this - in all my properties I have never increased rent in an existing tenancy, regardless of how long the tenant stays. Am I stupid or normal or somewhere in between?

    I’m of course happy to adjust to market rent whenever a tenant moves out and...
