Hi I have a tenant who has been in the property for around 3 and a half months. He paid nothing in advance and was making a housing benefit claim. We accepted him as we had assurances from his social worker he was eligible for the benefit. So far we had 400 from HB but his claim is now changed he gets paid direct combined with some job seekers. He has made no attempt to pay anything even though he knows he now has to pay us, and ignores our visits,calls and letters.His arrears are almost 800 already. Can I serve him with section 8 now? I want him out ASAP as I know he has no intention to pay and the flat stinks as does he. Had it refurbed before he moved in and hes trashed it.
