I have a tennant that is unemployed (although I have reason to believe he may be doing the odd days work !),he is in 1200 arrears,I am now receiving the housing benefit direct,but that is 87 every 4 weeks short of the rent.He has been unreliable for some time,chooses not to communicate and despite letters,texts,and e- mails has not made any other payments to me.

I think the only solution,is to get rid of him.Once he is back in work,he will be unreliable. I served a section 21 sometime ago.If I go for accelerated possession,will there be a problem with the courts as he is receiving housing benefit?

Is there any point in going to court for the arrears ? He is unemployed,although I believe he has savings.He certainly had housing benefit that he didn't pay to me !

Any one had this experience? Someones bound to have had !
