Prospective tenant has CCJ - should I take them?

What if I just put the wife on the tenancy and not the husband with the ccj. I could then get rgi since she is sqeaky clean. I'm not sure what the implications Are of having wife and not husband on tenancy agreement. I'd like to take them especially as I turned up unannounced to their current immaculate rented property. And previous 2 landlords spoke highly of them.( one a housing association and one a letting agent I know well). The £1000 incentive for me is to cover some of the costs of previous tenant which I pushed for. Commercially this is a good deal and out of the 7 council tenants I've had, only one was bad, but she was great for first 4yrs of tenancy and I had 42k worth of rent, mainly housing benefit out of her...

I did the nla basic check. Do you recommend the nla full check I think this checks employment references but they are in full housing benefit. I've done this for 15 yrs now, had 2 evictions on 6 properties but I still get the heebie jeebies when I hand the keys over!... Read More

Thanks for your comments. The car hire company took him to court over a dispute which he didn't agree with. I have a ccj number does anyone know the best website I can use to search for info. Just want to very what he told me. My last tenant had no ccj and i ended up evicting her! I have spoken with 2 previous landlords who said house was immaculate and no arrears. Also the council are paying me £1000 incentive, 3 months rent upfront for a 6 month ast which I was going to serve with a section 21. I've had private tenants view the house but let's say it's not that sort of area! Full housing benefit will be paid to me with a tenant top up of £100 pcm. I suppose there is no safe bet in this line of work... Read More

Bailiffs coming - can I put tenant on a holiday let contract?

Thanks for your advice guys, its poor timing for me but you came to the same conclusion as me which is to take my house back when the baliffs arrive. I think I've been watching too much of "can't pay we're take it away", which is where I got the idea from.... Read More

Council to reassess my tenants Housing Benefit but they are taking forever. Help

I've had this problem. You can ask her/him to write in to the coucil and authorise the landlord to have access to her account, this way you may know what the info is they are after and help the tenant to collate it....work together. If you are not feeling confident about the outcome, you could serve a S21 to cover your self only if they are outside the fixed term.... Read More
