More than one claim for rent arrears?
I have a guarantor who paid £500 of a £1500 rent arrears debt in 2015 after my claim for £500 through county court. The debt was from 2014.
I have now issued MCOL proceedings to get judgement for the other £1000 remaining. His defence is that he has settled the first claim and I can't claim again for the same thing ie rent arrears.
Should I be worried?
My initial claim made it clear that this was merely the first part of the debt. He claims I am harassing him. My understanding is that I can claim as many times as I want up to a period of 6 years.
