I have the following situation to deal with and would appreciate some advice.

Mother and son on tenancy for 3+ years however son no longer lives there and father now does but not on tenancy. Have had a history of late payments and excuses but until recently no long standing arrears. Now 1000 in arrears and 2 weeks late with current rent. Mother says that father (husband) has a brain tumour and cannot work and is struggling with rent. She should be able to make current rent by end of week but doesn't know how she's going to pay off debt. Father allegedly has a penthouse flat in Birmingham and a Mercedes AMG car although not sure what the lending is on these. I am reluctant to issue a new AST to include father. If things are not resolved could I go after son, who has is employed in a high st managerial position to recover monies?

What would people advise?

Many thanks.

David.
