Section 8 Possession Order without monies judgement?

Ive just evicted a tenant under section 8 for arrears that stood at nearly 6 months, this was due to delays for court availability and christmas etc. The judge issued a money order along with possession order, however the judge deducted the tenants deposit from the arrears!
I have visited the property and am horrified at the damage and mess the property has been left in. As I no longer have the deposit to use to cover some of the damage, the chances of recovering anything are slim to zero.
My point in this really is, do we as landlords ask that the deposit is kept separate to the arrears as now I have not only lost all the arrears but i now have a mammoth task of putting my property back in order at my expense as even if I pursue through small claims i do not believe this individual will pay what they owe!...

Section 21 notice advice please

Thank you for everyone's comments and apologies for not updating sooner but due to ill health and surgery i have been trying to focus on my health.
Anyway, back to the section 21 notice. The tenant confirmed receipt by text explaining they had been advised by their solicitor not to sign it which I believe they thought they could delay matters! A section 8 was then issued and we were in court last week. The judge awarded me a possession order and the tenant was to leave within 14 days even though they wanted 42 days. I have yet to get my keys back but I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. It may have been a long drawn out process but ensuring I had everything in order proved to be beneficial in this case. However, once I get my keys back I am tempted to sell up and not go down this route again, however I'll see how i feel about things once the dust has settled! Marg :)... Read More

Sorry for the delay in updating Andrew, I was rushed into hospital and have since had two major operations 🙁
Anyway, I got my solicitor to issue a section 8 and we went to court last week. The tenant wanted a lengthy period from the judge to find somewhere else but was given 14 days! It's taken a while but I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel!

Thank you everyone for your replies. The comments have been invaluable and all i can say is that I will hopefully have this one 'banged to rights' and out of my property sooner rather than later!
Thank you, Marg.... Read More
