Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

We managed to evict our tenant after she was many months in arrears. We got a CCJ for eviction and a money demand for about £20,000. She did a moonlight flip but we traced her through a tracing agency. The CCJ was not registered with the Registry-Trust but by continuously chasing the Court we got the CCJ registered.
We understand that we have up to 6 years to do “Enforcement”. The tenant claimed that she has no savings, car or any wealth, however we know that she is now receiving over £5000 a month from a Company, but this is classified as Consultancy work and not a PAYE job.
I have 2 questions:
1) Are we best to leave enforcement for 4 or 5 years by which time she may have savings or be in a PAYE job. She was once in a £100,000 pa job until she was made redundant.
2) If we did enforcement now will the Judge possibly make monthly deductions, to pay us, from her “Consultancy” role or would that not happen as it is not a PAYE role?
