We have taken one of our tenants to court for an eviction due to massive rent arrears. When we go to court the tenants had filed a counter-claim against us.
We were advised to get a survey on the property and to go back to court in August.
It now transpires that the tenant has vacated the property but still keeps going back into it for some reason or the other.
We have now been advised by the local council that they have suspended their claim for HB due to them no longer living at the property.
Our advisor has told us that we have to wait until the next court date (August 18th) to have the case dismissed. Is this correct? It seems that as they have now vacated we no longer need to go to court to get the eviction completed.
Can anyone let us know where we stand please.
