Hello Everybody, I’m new here so excuse any errors. I ran into some financial difficulties and decided to let my flat out (6 months tenancy) to a couple who deceived me by their lies. I admit I am a bit gullible and new to this. They moved into the Essex flat and now telling all kinds of stories why the rent is 3 weeks late now.
The man is a Landscaper and his wife is an Estate Agent. I would have thought that her being an estate agent, she would know better than to default on rent, but it seems like she’s using her knowledge to play the system. I would like to serve a section 8, grounds 8,10,11 and maybe also 2 & 12, but I’m not to sure how this works.
They are currently 3 weeks late and I have to wait until Jan 12 before it becomes 2 months in arrears. They have failed to answer/return calls and text and late on email response, so I called her at work to ask about the 1st rent payment. She obviously didn’t want to talk and said that it could be classed as harassment.
I got refs from employer and ex landlord, bank statements etc and I admit I made the mistake of helping out someone I thought I was genuinely helping. I am financially stretched and wanted to know if it is possible to serve a section 8 myself and represent myself if this end in court?
Any extra advice on this would be much appreciated as I’m on the brink.
