Debt recovery through benefits
I spoke with Jim last week regarding debt recovery from tenants and he mentioned that having spoken to David, it was possible to collect debts from tenants sill housed in our properties through the DWP even though it will only be £3.50 per week. Can you please call me and point me in the right direction to do this. We have a tenant who owes £800 in arrears building up over 6 months. We have given a variety of repayment plans but have all been ignored over time. We have now given notice to leave the property to them ( yes they have had section 21 previously) We have also sent them to our local housing advice team and homeless section (we deal with them alot) to get advice. We are presuming that between now and when they leave, we will get no further payments from them for top up rent. Any advice would be appreciated.
