A moral Dilemma
I Just wanted fellow Landlords opinions on this one.
I have a tenant who owes me about £5000 due to various reasons, failed section 21's (we do indeed never stop learning), etc. However, court docs have come and he has s**t himself and rang me up. We have negotiated that he will move out and set up a payment plan for the arrears (might not get them back i know but jsut want the hosue back). He is currently looking for other rental properties that are considerably cheaper to rent than mine, BUT........he needs a reference.
I want my hosue back without goign through courts, I dont want to see him out on the street, but do I write him a refernece knowing that some other fellow Landlord mgiht be stuck with him. On the plus side his rent will be cheaper and I have showed him the housing benefit system so he could claim for the new proeprty, he is not a bad tenant in other ways, he has not trashed the house etc, however he does owe me cash.
