I have a situation whereby a tenant whom owes a considerable amount of rent from a joint tenancy of a six bedroom property that ended in 2006, after numerous lies, false promises and bounced cheques, still owes a considerable amount of money.

As there is no guarantor for this tenant am I right in assuming that I have no option but to take the tenant and her co-tenants of this tenancy to court as it was a joint tenancy?

If this is the case I have a catch 22 situation as even though the tenancy was joint they all now live at different addresses so in effect surely this means that I will have to take them to court seperately and by doing so have to pay six times the claim costs.

Also, if this is the case does this not contradict the purpose of a joint tenancy as they cannot jointly be taken to court.

Please would you help with this matter.
