Alex Watts : Do you mean arrears or future rent? Was judgment given for the arrears in the possession order please?
JACUSTOMER-vw0d862y- : Yes the arrears.
JACUSTOMER-vw0d862y- : yes it's the arrears.
JACUSTOMER-vw0d862y- : Yes it's the arrears. I don't any arrears being in the possession order
Alex Watts :

You only owe if there was a possession order which stated a sum of the arrears.

Alex Watts :

It would normally say:

Alex Watts :

1) The Defendant do give up possession of xxxx by xxxx date

Alex Watts :

2) The Defendant pay the arrears of £xxx and costs of £100 by xxx datte

Alex Watts :

If it does not say that then you do not owe it.

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

JACUSTOMER-vw0d862y- : Ok that's fine I don't belive the possession order said anything about me paying court costs or the arrears
Alex Watts :

If it does not then you are ok.
