Friend? Certainly not.
At the start of this month I drew up a new contract stating £850pcm and informed them that the top-up will also be increased, also reminded them to continue paying the C/Tax and I need the top-up arrears settled, they agreed.
I now find myself in an awfull position; they have not paid the top-up nor have they paid the C/Tax, well they only paid one months and as the Bailiffs arrived an added amount was charged, a few days ago I had to settle the bill, cost me £1800.00. It does not end there, At the begining of this month I drew up a new contract stating £850.00pcm and I receive a letter from my freind.........emmmm stating that only the amount on the Contract was agreed and no top-up was ever mentioned. I am paid by DD so they have record of making regular paymenmts.
I paid them a visit, unknown to them I recorded the whole conversation; they admitted asking me to place a different amount on the contract and agreed to pay the top-up each month and that they were in arrears with the top-up. They also stated to pay the C/Tax as agreed from the start of the Tenancy. What also surprised me was that they admitted subletting a room for financial gain, it came to a suprise but I chose to ignore this, still considering them as freinds.
As I departed from their home I felt that my appearance was not going to change there mind as they only need to pay £850pcm for all the comfort they have, this is having a serious effect on me financially.
I decided to give them Notice of Eviction under Section 8, stating Rent Arrears as I now have it on tape and also Subletting.
Am I going the right way of Evicting them, HELP.
Please advise me and/or give me step by step instructions on how to rid of this couple.
