Are courts going to turn vehemently anti-landlord?

Dr Beck, In my case I managed to get the judgement and payment of over £3000 rent arrears , but it took 2 years on slow deduction of tenant’s wages. Luckily the tenant had proveable professional employment, I think it also depends on the judge, and the particular court but the main thing is rhat you have your property back and that’s why section 21 must stay, however if section21 is removed without proper back up for landlords. I think that will be the end of smaller private landlords, and also disastrous for tenants.... Read More

Possession Claim Online experience?

I had a similar experience awhile ago. The council are not inclined to rent council houses to applicants who have made themselves diliberataly homeless by not paying their rent. Perhaps advising your tenants of this might encourage them to pay up. Also you must provide all relevant documents if going to court,including valid deposit protection cert. The tenants may at least try to appeal for more Time,but if your paperwork is not in completely in order things can go very wrong. As far as you getting your monies owed,you may win your case, but actually getting your money is another story. I was lucky in that one of the tenants had a regular official job and I managed to eventually get paid via deduction from wages.... Read More
