Possession after tenant surrendered – Court Action still advisable?Make Text Bigger
I have an ex tenant, who faced with the prospect of a confirmed court hearing under section 8 ground 8 has voluntarily terminated the tenancy AFTER the hearing date has been set. What are the advantages (if any) of continuing with the court action bearing in mind the additional costs involved to myself such as solicitors, lost time etc?
In the past I have had tenants abandon and I have gone to court just to get legal confirmation that the tenancy has ended, however in this case that is not an issue
The tenant is on benefits and the long term chances of recovering the arrears are not great even with a money judgement.
Is there any advantage of pushing this through the court?
