Making a money claim for unpaid rent
My question is at what point can I make a claim to recoup the amount owing? I have been granted a possession order (with 28 days for the tenants to move out) on 23rd August so am anticipating a possession date of around 21st-ish of September. I was planning to make the claim online through the HMCS money claim website but do I have to wait until they actually move out or can I start it now?
Also, is there any way I can make sure I have a forwarding adress if they do move out?
I am 100% sure they will not pay the amount owing as they have not paid any rent personally to me since they moved in (I have received some housing benefit payments however, all of which I can provide evidence of if needed).
Thanks in advance
