Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Is he working? Have you got a warrant of eviction yet?
If he isn't working, he can pay the rent using housing benefit.
The fact he hasn't claimed housing benefit to pay his rent for him leads me to believe that he is working.
I haven't applied for a warrant of eviction yet.
If the next step is apply for a warrant of eviction, how will that process also reward me with the rent he owes?
Ok - you need to apply for a warrant of eviction. The cost is £100.
The bailiffs will evict him.
Does that clarify? Alex
Thank you. And in applying for that warrant of eviction, how will I recoup the money owed to me?
Well if the tenant has no money, you may just have a paper judgment, nothing more.
I am sorry. Alex
But when they evict him, what would be the next step or piece of paper I need to fill out to pursue him for the money owed?
Also on the warrant form, it says:
A) Balance due at date of this request
B) Amount for which warrant to issue:
The court said he owes £2845
Another rent period has now passed, making it £3205
In five days, it'll go up to £3565.
For A is it right to put £3205?
For B is it right to put £3565?
Please clarify both.
Also can you please clarify what the Issue fee is so that I can fill in the appropriate box? Is it definitely £100?
Also who do I send this form to? Do I just send it to the County Court for the Attention of the bailiff at the County Court where the order of possession was issued?
In filling out this form, is the bailiff also going there to collect money?
If you have an order for possession then any fees are included if you requested these from the Court.
The fee for the warrant is £100.
Does that clarify?Alex
Thank you - but can you please tell me: how do the bailiffs get the money from him? If he doesn't hand over the money, what would I need to do to pursue the money?
No. That is for you to do. You can either instruct bailiffs to recover money, freeze his bank account or make him bankrupt if its over £5000.
thank you - ok final question: so do I have to pay the issue fee by attaching a cheque for £100 to the court?
Yes you do. Payable to HMCTS

Alex, on your advice I sent the warrant to the court with the £100 cheque. They sent it back saying a warrant is £110, not £100.
Yes it was £100 for quite some time, look like it went up a couple of weeks ago.
