I have a current tenant, a lady of appx 35 with an 8yr old daughter, who has, can I say, ” gone sour on me.”
She signed a Tenancy Agreement , drafted by, my then Letting Agent,for an initial 6months and which has then been followed for a further unspecified period on a periodic tenancy basis. In total the tenancy reaches 12months on the 23rd July 2013.
After the first 6 months rent payments became erratic, late, differing amounts being paid all of which has lead to needing to text or an attempt to contact the tenant to “chase the rent”. She is currently 1 month in arrears which will be 2 months by the 23rd July. She has, she claims,been to the CAB claiming harassment, that her deposit can be used to offset her rent and she is also alleging the signature on the tenancy agreement is not hers, albeit it has taken her nearly a year to notice it isn’t her signature on the agreement!
Can I ask all you lads and lasses out there in Landlord land, what would you do?
