Hello, my agent sent this in response to a tenant in arrears. Is this legal?
Response: The tenant currently owes £2350 in rent arrears we will take steps to secure this debt by way of a CCJ. It will be about 14 days before we are in a position to submit the CCJ application, the cost of this will be £115. At the same time as submitting the CCJ application, we will also issue a Section 13 notice to increase the rent from £550 to £650. If the tenant is still in occupation and failing to pay rent by the time we have secured the debt, we will contact you about making an application for possession under Section 8 of the Housing Act.
My question is: Is applying for a CCJ before applying for a Section 8 a good idea?
