    Help! Tenant has outstanding payday loans

    Hi All,

    I've had a bit of a nightmare recently with a tenant which I've only just got rid off.

    Ive found an outstanding arrears notices and 1 bailiff letter and am now slightly worried. Any one know the correct procedure for something like this?

    Thanks,

    George

    Write on the envelope "no longer at this address - return to sender" and put it back in the post.

    I would contact the bailiff and make it absolutely clear that they person has left - just stops any problems with then arriving to enforce court order...would also be useful to do this with any other mail...

    I agree with Keith....contact the bailiffs otherwise they will be pestering your new tenants for the foreseeable future.  This happened when I rented a house and the local authority were trying to enforce parking penalties from a tenant who lived there 4 years earlier....a US police officer on secondment.   The bailiffs gained entry to the old conservatory then proceeded to shoulder the kitchen door open.  Oxfordshire CC hold the Electoral Register and hadn't bothered to check that the guy was long gone.

    If this nightmare of a tenant owes you money ensure your court case (presumably small-claims, MCoL..) get sorted first, CCJ, recover monies owed.


    THEN tell anyone else where he is.  Don't help competing creditors get anything off him before you do.
