RENT AND COMPENSATION
Am I within my rights (or is it moral/sensible) to refuse to credit the withheld (compensation) funds as the missing rent? Would the Small Claims Court laugh me away, given that the final outcome is the same?
I am worried because if I credit it and he then misses a further month, in law his arrears will be just one month and I cannot start proceedings. If I don't credit the compensation, I have a head start because he'll be a month in arrears already.
Grateful for your advice because I want to protect my interests, but I don't want to be a prat, either. I know I'm emotional but the courts aren't. I need some measured advice and you're the ones to offer it.
