Well my first ever eviction process has started, I’ve lasted 8 years in property without ever having to do this!
My tenant has done (and admitted to) several thousands of pounds worth of damage to the property. A section 21 has been served (using NLA form) and the expiry date is near end of July. The Police have been informed and I have a crime reference number (though they’re not going to do anything).
My tenants are now in arrears because they are saving the rent which should come to me for the deposit and advance rent on their next property, so I’m assuming by the time they leave they will be at least 7 weeks in arrears.
I have sent a rental demand to them and to their guarantor, but no response yet!
My question is, can I start any legal proceedings/ claims process while the S21 is running?
Indeed, can I make any claim for arrears now I’ve served the S21?
They weren’t in arrears when it was served.
My insurance company will send out a loss adjuster once the tenants have vacated though they won’t confirm they will accept the claim until that point.
My tenants deposit (all protected correctly and tenants signed to confirm receipt of prescribed info) is £600. Arrears will be (and of course they may not move out when they should!) just short of a thousand and property damage I estimate around £3,000.
Really grateful for any advice from landlords who have been though this process.
