just a section 21 as the arrears were not at this level at the time of service
are you still working on this one ?
Sorry I have been in Court.
What you have done is serve a section 21. You can also serve a section 8 which is a breach.
If the tenant is more than 8 weeks or 2 months in arrears then by law you can apply for possession.
You do not have to accept £3.65 per week. You can apply for possession
Because this is in arrears you can either do this by completing form N5b
This is the accelerated route or you can issue proceedings online at:
But you can apply for possession.
You do NOT have to accept payment by installments
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
So no, he is not correct.
Does this help?
This particular tenant that is due to be moving out tomorrow is now requesting compensation for slow repairs, failure to protect the deposit and damage to her belonging that were not covered by the insurance we forced her to take out.
She is threatening court action unless she is paid £5k, this is something we will obviously fight though what is the best way forward. There arrears are currently over two months. Would it be a case of ascertaining whether they are moving out or not then proceeding with action for the arrears ?
