what do I do now?
2 tenant of mine have recently left my property owing £1600 in overdue rent. They were LHA claimants and when her partner got a job, the rent stopped and they didnot make up the arrears.
They left the property, failing to give me the required 4 weeks notice.
I have filed a claim against them with moneyclaimonline.
the tenants have not responded to the court papers and I have been offered 'judgement by default'
What I would like to know is that because both the defendants are on benefits, will the judge make an award to me out of their other benefits?
In other words is it worth continuing with this claim?
I chose this website because it looked easy to use and has a 'help desk' which is impossible to get through to!
there were also a couple of options I could take about how to proceed with the case, but I can't remember what they are now and the website keeps crashing today.
I would be very grateful if you would get back to me with as much detail as poss about taking housing benefit claimants to court and the best way to go about it.
