Hi All,I have been converting my houses one by one into house shares.I now have my first bit of trouble since I went down this avenue of the rental market.
One of the first houses that I converted has had a tenant
Living there from when it was converted.
This guy quite recently told me he had cancer and stopped paying rent,I have recently found out that he was lying about this to buy himself time due to him leaving his job because he wasn't happy at work.
I didn't send a section 21 due to me thinking he was very ill and to be honest I didn't think it was right because I was under the impression that he was very ill.
He also kept saying he was going back to work when he was better and not to worry because he would catch up with arrears.
I believed him,but he has now told the other housemates how much he owes and now 2 of them are late with rent too.
