In July last year I let one of my houses to an HB tenant. The rent is £765 pcm with the local council paying £650, tenant topping up.
Since that time the tenant has been consistently in arrears and I am always having to remind about payment, which eventually is paid.
When she moved in her mother gave me £600 which we agreed was rent in advance, I have a copy of this. In November I deducted £200 for arrears in agreement with her mother.
I am now looking to evict the tenant, but am told that I cannot do this under section 21 because the payment would be deemed to be deposit and not rent in advance – I didn’t protect this as was advised wasn’t necessary as was not a deposit, and have been advised to repay the whole £600 which I have done, but 10 days after sending my cheque to the mother it has not been cashed and I cannot contact her.
What can I do!
Any support would be welcome as I feel I m floundering here.
