Hello, welcome to the website. My name is Tony, I can assist you with this.
Have you tried online searches and perhaps issuing an enquiry agent to try and locate the defendants or any other means of trying to locate them?
yes i have tried on line searches but the tenants are not permanent residents
i dont know how to find them
i only have business bank account that the tenant had with HSBC
Have you tried online searches? Using things like 192.com?
yes.....he is not appearing
as he is moved to another rental i suspect
what should i do
as its a lot of money to recover
Okay. Then if you have carried out reasonable searches to try and locate them, you can ask the Court for permission to serve the papers on them in a different way.
Do you know whether they're on Facebook or LinkedIn or something like that?
Do you have an email address for them?
no hes not
hes a labourer
and i guess hes set up his own building businesss
he is not on any social media
how do i ask the courts....what documents....applications do i make
Okay. Then I would suggest you consider asking the Court for permission to serve papers on them by advertising in the local paper.
Silly question.....how do i approach the courts....
However, before doing that, you could seek to issue an enforcement against them by what is called a "This Party Debt Order".
and what papers do i servce
This would allow you to take money from their bank account to satisfy your judgment debt.
i kind of need a detailed answer please......sorry to be a pain
i wil try This Party Debt Order"
That's fine .... I will tell you whatever you want to know.
Here is a link to the detailed information on Third Party Debt Orders" http://www.moneyclaimsuk.co.uk/PDFForms/EX325.pdf
and for the court order
This order will allow you to take money from his bank account without him having a say. It will mean that the bank will also reveal the amount in his bank account.
for the court order....what the process
Have a look at the link I gave you, it gives you a step by step guide on what to do. It's a great resource.
I'll answer any questions you have on it.
okay.....even though i dont know his address
Basically, though, you complete Form N349 and sent to the Court with the fee.
Here is Form N349: http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/HMCTS/GetForm.do?court_forms_id=573
Is there anything else I can assist with?
