    Recovering a Debt

    I currently have a tenant who has substantial arrears in the region of 4k. We have tried numerous times to resolve the matter but the debt just keeps growing and growing. I am now in the position that I need to look at alternative options for recovering the debt. We are past the small claims court option due to the scale of debt. I had spoken with an advisor at SAL who mentioned the option of a debt recovery company. I have been told that these companies normally operate on a no win no fee basis. Does anyone have any experience of these companies and know any that can be recommended. The property in question is situated in Glasgow.


    Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Is he still in occupation? Priority is usually get them out, then get decree including debt (you don't know how much until they leave -rent - and assess damages.

    Check with your solicitor but I think you can start small claims today for some of rent owed, below £3k, then when gone go for the rest.

    What notices have you served?

      Tenant is still in occupation. Her lease rolled over on the 1st of September 2015 so is due to expire on 1st September 2016. I have therefore issued a section 33 requiring possession on the 1st of September rather than going down the AT6 road which is more complicated.

        So "tacit relocation" eh? SaL's standard tenancy allows earlier ending IIRC. Have you also served NTQ, also expiring on the ish?
