I have a tenant in an HMO who, after 6 weeks of his 6 month contract has said his company is moving him. As such, he has said he will leave in 3 weeks and only pay then. As the area is now quite hard to find tenants in (and as I had more than a month void before finding him and the previous tenant had skipped his rent before that, I’m obviously less than happy).
While he has not left and I have started advertising the room. I have made clear to him that the sooner I can rent it, the better for him as it will release him from further costs, however, he is not helping in getting the room rented (always messy etc) and I believe he thinks he can just walk away.
However, he is a Tier 2 long term staff migrant sub-contracted to a UK company. He will be moving to a new role within the UK, but its unknown where or to what sub-contracted company.
I have his NI number (I’m trusting what he gave me is real) but even if I can trace where he is, what are my chances of being able to take legal action (normally I would use Money Claim Online). Or is there something regarding his visa I can follow up on (or threaten him with).
While I am happy to negotiate, he is not willing so I feel more than justified to use every avenue to make him responsible up until the end of his contract or I find a new tenant.
