I am about to make a claim for possession under an accelerated possession process. I believe that under the rules for accelerated possession I cannot take money from the deposit to cover rent arrears. I further believe that in order to recover these arrears, I must make a seperate claim in the "Court for small claims". As I do not know how many weeks rent will be owed by the time possession is achieved and once possession is achieved, I am unlikely to have an address for the defendant, am I able to make an assumption that the claim for possession will take "X" number of weeks and submit a claim for any rent unpaid up to the date of possession (ie without specifying a numerical figure). If not, what is the best course of action??
