Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

To cut a story short… Bad tenant trashes flat and leaves with rent arrears. Legal process begins. Court dates where I attend and she doesn’t – still no resolution.
Situation is now that it has been moved to small claims track court with a hearing date of early March. I KNOW she wont turn up as she has not on previous three occasions.
On the basis I win the case and the judge agrees with the costs judgement what is the best way to now get my money back? All paperwork to her has been sent to two addresses (I believe current address and her mother’s address) and she has been working as far as I am aware so have two work addresses. From a quick search on social media yesterday it may be she has now stopped working though.
1. Are there any free ways of tracking her down? Clearly I don’t to throw any more money at this if I can’t get it back
2. If I cant get an address of where she is currently living or working, how can I get a judgement against her and get any money back?
3. Can the court make a judgement that the mother must tell them where she is?
Any advice welcome!
