Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020
About A week ago 40
Hi all, looking for information and advice. I have a tenant that has not paid any rent from January 1st 2018. They have told me that they want a council house.
They were issued with a Notice 21 and Notice 8 in February, with the Notice 21 to vacate by April 10th 2018. We are now in the process of a PCOL / accelerated possession for rent arrears without claiming for the rent arrears, with a court date of 29th May 2018.
My question is do I have to take any documents to the courts before the court date as it was completed online?
What should I expect?
I have raised 4 CCJs for rent arrears (Jan/May) and told the tenant that I will raise another 6 months after they have left due to damage at the property.
As of today debt is £5135 and looking to add another £3445 if they vacate with out using the Bailiffs
Also is there anywhere to post their names so other Landlords do not have the same?
