Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
You need to write and set out your losses and request payment (loss rent, letting fees etc) within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not pay you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value, you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
Yes, you can. Then you can only claim for losses up to that period.
As for the TDS deposit, you can seek a Court order that these sums are offset against the arrears.
The deposit is only released when the tenancy ends.
Does that clarify?
You don't. Issue the claim against the tenant and once you get a CCJ, ask the Court that the deposit is released to you.
No. Your expert report is better evidence.
Does that clairfy?
Does that clarify ?
The court will deal with that too.
Does that assist?
Yes because the Court wont make an order without him being present. It would be unfair.
