  • Starting a court claim: pursue ex tenant or their guarantor?

    Hi all, I've had a tenant abscond with no notice, owing rent. I have advised them by letter that unless payment is made, legal action will be taken to recover the debt. I have also written to their guarantor advising that they may be liable. Neither have responded.

    Do I now submit a claim against the ex tenant, or the guarantor? Or both? With the cost involved in submitting the court papers, I want to get the right one first time.

    The property is in Scotland, if that makes a difference.

    Was it specifically to comply with Scottish requirements or just some random English guarantee?

    Do you mean the guarantor form? It was from one of the landlord forums, a while ago so can't remember where. Fairly confident on the form standing up.

    Thank you for you feedback, both.

    Pursue both, jointly: As long as you are confident the guarantee will stand up. Where did you get it from?
