What happens next if Tenants now start to claim Housing Benefit?

Hi John

I think Gary's got it about right, strange they should both loose their jobs at the same time? especially if they are due a baby. Get them out sooner than later.

best of luck

Late payment of rent by Letting Agency

The best advise would be go and speak to an agent who is a member of a trade body such as UKALA, ARLA who carry client money protection or a letting agent who is a SAFE AGENT. If you have the rent going direct to yourself you will need to serve notice. Most agent would take over the management, normally free of charge for the transferring over to their agency.
