Hi all,

My tenant is currently receiving housing benefit which is paid directly to myself 4 weekly.
The tenant has not made her top up payments since February.
The shortfall is currently covered by the deposit held.
With the AST been periodic can I serve a section 21 and use the deposit to cover the rest of the arrears?
I'm worried the costs of going to court for 300 arrears and wonder if this can be solved more simply?

Any help would be great thank you.
