I have a tenant who hasn’t paid rent for over 6 weeks.
She is a single mother with a child under 4 years old, she rents one room (upstairs) in the house and shares facilities such as the kitchen, bathroom, and downstairs WC. She told me she can’t afford to pay rent as she only works one day, although I suspect she works 5 days a week. I think she is desperate for a council house and wants me to make her homeless, she mentioned wanting a council house, so now I am lumbered with this woman.
I have a signed AST agreement with her, which still has 5 months to go on it.
I have provided her with a rent book, she is suppose to pay rent weekly.
I have a schedule of arrears.
She paid no deposit.
I sent her a polite letter asking her to pay her arrears, I have proof of postage, although not recorded delivery, as I thought she might not accept the letter. I also handed her a letter by hand.
I do not live in the property.
I also suspect she has another lady living with her, who I have spotted a number of times coming in to the property every evening, over the last 4 weeks. So she, her son and another lady live in one room, which doesn’t seem right to me. I didn’t agree to 3 people sharing one room.
What can I do?
What are the most likely outcomes of such a situation?
I am stressed out.
