Hi,
The tenant in my property said he lost his job before christmas and the council only started paying his rent in April. The rent is 550 per month and he's getting 340 from the council. He should pay 2 months in advance and the council pay him 4 weeks in arrears. He is currently unable to pay the shortfall. I have issued him with a section 8 and 21. I have applied to Liverpool court for eviction on April 20th and just received a court date of 7th July. His tenancy ends on July 31st anyway and my solicitors costs are 425 on top of the court fees. This means he gets another 3 rent free months in my property and I am struggling to pay the mortgage. Do you have any advice to help me gain posession faster?
