My new tenant (young family) paid the deposit and first months rent and all seemed well. Unfortunately he just lost his job and informed me he cannot pay the rent. I have a guarantor but the tenant has told me he will likely not pay up.

The tenant has been to the council for support and been given a lot of paperwork and told the process can take 6 weeks.

What are my options for putting in a place an eviction notice if the council falls through or don't offer to pay enough to cover the rent.

What about the guarantor - is it worth chasing. I read that this normally fails. We used the RLA templates for AST, deposit, guarantor etc so this should be correctly in place.

I am not necessarily looking to evict the tenants, just looking at what happens if he cannot find a job or the council refuses to application.

Thanks in advance
