    Warrant/ attachment/ other?

    This is not really a Residential Lettings question but...

    LL didn't pay back deposit so I issued a small claim and he has ignored everything.

    He lives in a £1m house, owns two flats and has a good job in a popular magazine.

    I have entered judgment against him and am not sure how to proceed. Do I send in the bailiffs, get the money from his salary or from his back account?

    Can anyone highlight the pros and cons of these processes? Yes, I have scoured the hmcs!!

    Nope, yes and that's what I'm asking! You can get it from there account, salary or from the bailiffs. Which is the most successful?

      Do you now have a CCJ on him?
      You should instruct the court to collect the cash, pay a fee to the court and enjoy!!
      ...and seek a Charging Order on his properties?

        Bailiffs would be the most embarrassing for him, wouldn't it?

          I like the way you think, Peter. But, they are more likely to harrass his nanny.
          I spoke to her more than I spoke to him.

          I like the idea of getting it out of his salary or his bank account becuase those avenues are the most unpleasant for him.

          Charging Order on his properties? I'll have a look..

          Thanks jeffrey and Peter..

            Charging order on his property only means that you get the money if/ when he sells. No judge is going to force the sale of a £1m property for a charge that is relatively small.

              Well he does own two other flats...I like the idea of getting it out of his salary. Very humiliating

                Pardon my ignorance starlettings, but why would I do a land reg search? I know where he lives and the flat I lived in was two doors down.

                  I am a Landlord and I have a company tenancy which has now come to an end. I did a check-in inventory before the tenant moved in and I have done a check-out inventory now that they have moved out, and there are damages to my property by the tenant. The deposit is being held by the agent and is not in...

                  If the agent is refusing the mediate the dispute between the tenant and myself but, is instead asking me to go to court, what are my options in terms of penalising the agent? Apart from firing them, can I get compensation from them failing to provide their services?...

                  You declare (online) and pay CGT within 60 days of sale. Depending on the numbers I would expect you to pay CGT. What records do you have of applicable costs, etc?

                  What you pay will depend on what CGT rules when you sell - v unlikely to be better than today, possibly worse. Covid,...

                  Hello

                  I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

                  I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

                  From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

                  Yes, I agree that deposit protection legislation does not apply and I happy to settle this dispute without trying to involve a Deposit Scheme

                  The reality is that there a fewer and fewer properties coming onto the rental market, as LL's are selling up, this unfortunately means that those left in want higher rents due to the burden of higher external costs (mortgages, licences, insurance, etc etc) This ultimately means that LL's can in some...
