    Evicted tenants arrears

    A tenant has left one of my properties after she was given a notice to quite, but owe me £1,200. She left no forwarding address, but I have found out where she works and have her NI number. I have also found out she has a ccj against her from the inland revenue and they are currently trying to get an attachement to earnings order. She appearrs to have lots of other debts by the post which is arriving daily.

    Can I write to her at her place of employment to give a final warning that I am going for a ccj unless she makes contact and offers to pay some money, or would this be seen as harrassment.

    If I get a ccj at her old address, which she will not contest because she is not there, can I piggy back on the back of the inleand revenue deduction from earnings.


    Thanks for your help

    You should get legal advice, but I suspect that as the tenant already has ccj's, another won't be much of a hassle, getting the cash is much harder than getting paid.

      If she already has a ccj the threat of another one wont make any differance. Get a debt collector on to her and let them deal with it.

        Note that the HM Revenue & Customs will have first claim on any money she might have spare out of her earnings, so if she has a big bill from them you might find it difficult to get anything from her.

        • Erroneous Change Of Occupancy Fee
          Sonofahod
          Hi There,

          I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

          Your information is severely deficient,
          Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
          You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
          Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

          HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

          I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

          Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
