Hi all

This is the next stage of my sorry story with the current tenants. They owe me £3500 in rent arrears. I went the S21 route to speed the eviction process up and have just filed N325 and await a date for the bailiffs to evict.

My questions are:

1 What's the best way to get a CCJ against them? I have very little chance of getting the owed money (she has become unemployed and he is still working albeit restricted hours and has simply chosen not to pay his rent or any part of it), but I want to make it as difficult as possible for them to rent in the private sector in future.
2 If I do MCOL, is it best to get an Attachment of Earnings? the problem is I don't know where he is currently employed. Any other options?
3 I asked for them to pay court costs but of course they didn't pay before the date specified by court so does this mean they will automatically get a CCJ against them?
4 When they go to the council asking to be rehoused, will the council contact me to ask if they have paid the rent? I tried phoning the council but they weren't interested in my story.

Thank you everyone
