Guarantor not paying rent and bailiffs are backlogged?

My tenant who is on benefits is in arrears and the guarantor is not paying the rent. Do I take legal action against,the tenant or guarantor?debt collection

I have been granted order of possession by the court and the council have told tenant not to move out until a bailiff knocks on the door.

I have now applied to the court for bailiff but understand Bow county Court has a 4 – 5 months backlog for a bailiff to be sent.

What should and can I do about recovering rent arrears please?

Hi Karuna I cant see a way to private message you ? I work for a high court enforcement agency and as I said we can help to get the eviction completed at a far earlier date than the Bow bailiffs are offering. I havent read all the thread so I am presuming you are losing out on a great deal of rental income due to the delay?

Hi Karuna, OK will talk today if you seriously want them evicted quicker and then recover your losses , why wait any longer . Your maximum exposure to us would be £921 for both the actual eviction and enforcement for the debt including our high court fees and including VAT , thats what less than one months rent and we'd be saving you much more than that in lost rent

Hi Mike,
Just to let you know that I now have an eviction date by the court bailiff on 1/2/17. Also the guarantor has come to his senses and paid the rent arrears.
I thank you once again for your offer of help and will hold your contact details should I require your assistance in the future.
