Record when rents are due and when they are paid by your tenants. Pay all rents due, water use or incidental charges, including rent in advance, and inform the landlord/agent that you have done so. The owner/officer must then inform the sheriff who will not execute the arrest warrant. If you live with other people, but you have all signed separate leases, you will only have to pay the rent you have agreed to. Your rents are written in your own rental agreement. This means that you are not responsible for paying other people`s arrears. Your landlord must give you a rental book or other rent registration if you have a weekly rent. Make sure you`ve signed all your rent payments and they add up correctly. Normally, arrears are paid shortly after this letter.
The court may also order that you “often do not pay” the rent if the landlord has included it in your application. If there are several tenants and one of them misses the rent or is short, all the other tenants are responsible for the outstanding rent. You have to pay the debts if the insulting tenant doesn`t. A section 8 note is delivered in different forms, depending on the type of rental agreement you have, so you make sure you fill out the correct version of the form. The reasons for enforcing a Section 8 eviction order are set out in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988 and one of the most common reasons for evicting a tenant is rent arrears. An accelerated property order is also possible if you do not collect unpaid rent. See if you can accept a repayment plan to pay off your rent arrears. If your tenant has provided a deposit, you send the deposit a letter telling them that the tenant has not paid the rent in accordance with the tenancy agreement. A tenant must continue to pay his rent in full until the end of the lease and as long as all disputes continue. In the event of a dispute between the tenant and the landlord and which could not be resolved, a dispute may be referred to the RTB. If, in this case, a tenant withheld the payment of the rent, they would have to pay the rent again and wait for the dispute to be heard.
Tenants and landlords need to know what to do if the rent is late and where they can seek help. If they have difficulties, you can have them add an amount to their regular rent until they have paid the debt.
