Judgement being paid through letterbox

Judgement being paid through letterbox

I have 2 judgements being paid by my ex tenant. One of the judgements is paid by AOE but the other one is paid by cheque. Judgement being paid through letterbox

The problem I have is that my ex tenant despite being asked a few times and being given my bank details will not pay the judgement into my bank account.

The ex tenant insists on coming to my home and putting a cheque through my letterbox.

I have to go away for a while and will not be at my address to receive the cheques.

Any advice please?

Hi Jan

What are you going to do about your own post and bills whilst you are away?

If I were you I'd thank my lucky stars that it's being paid.

Have you not got a trusted friend or a family member who can deal with your post in your absence?

I know what your saying ' thank my lucky stars ' and it was hard work getting these Judgments too .
My other mail will be redirected . The ex tenants dont send through Royal Mail.
Not the nicest of people . I have had the police stop 2 of the family coming on my property due to behaviour . I would of thought it would be easier for them to pay into bank anyway .

Jan, It's clearly a pain but I think you'll just have to get someone to pick up your post & pay it in for you as they are clearly being dogmatic and any attempt to change things will probably result in non-payment.

How long will you be away? There could be insurance issues as most household policies won't cover you if the house is empty for longer than a few weeks.

Have you considered a house-sitter while you are away? There are a number of web-sites that you can find trustworthy people on and they would keep your place occupied, enable you to comply with your insurance terms, look after the house & garden and forward all that mail that the post office fail to forward......

To be honest it would be better for me if they stopped paying cause then I could get AOE.
My house insurance is all taken care of.

Slightly separate to this subject, but this subject brings it up, when we had one of them silly people who did blanket statements when he said every Landlord should let their tenants know their home address. I think it was on HIMO forms or deposit protection forms. He said Landlords shun't have nothing to hide.

This post shows why Landlords shun't have to give tenants their home address.
