Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020
About 3 days ago 60
I have a lady tenant in one of my flats who has been there for many years, up to now a model tenant. Over the winter she became ill and had to quit her job. She has tried to get housing benefit and I believe that eventually the local authority will meet its obligation.
The problem is that I have had no rent for five months now whilst the housing office procrastinates. Financially I cannot go without this income any longer being owed about three thousand pounds by now. My letting agents with the tenants permission have chased the council to no avail. I am reluctant to start eviction proceedings but am beginning to think this may be the only way forward.
Have you had any experience that would help me formulate a course of action? I would like to hear others’ thoughts on this.
