    Whether CPR 6.9 applies at all is arguable. It deals with "Service ... where the defendant does not give an address at which the defendant may be served", whereas nearly all tenants will be subject to a tenancy agreement that makes express provision for service, so that the preceding rule 6.8 ("Service of the claim form where before service the defendant gives an address at which the defendant may be served") will apply instead.


      have just found out hes been deported. have found they have been doing inusrance fraud with albanians for car crash and taking out huge money loans from payday lenders ow joy.


        If you're sure about that, I'd repossess immediately and get his stuff into storage.
        The chances of anyone claiming illegal eviction are close to zero, and even so, you'd have a good defence.
        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).
