Yes I finally got my Possession order. This time round the tenant was represented by a solicitor from the local Housing Trust who produced a medical report and requested the tenant be given an extended period to vacate. The judge was not only unimpressed but he awarded me £750 in legal costs because the tenant had been "...inaccurate and obstructive in this matter." He owes me £5,000 in rent plus £750 in costs plus £25 a day until he leaves, plus interest plus plus plus. I shall be rich!!!

Hooray for me.

PS He has agreed to pay the money owing at £3 a week so ya boo sucks to anyone who says BTL doesn't pay.

I'm in the money
I'm in the money

Don't be a party pooper Jeffrey. What possible reason could you have for thinking I won't get my £3 a week!

I have just worked out that the tenant will have repaid be in time for my 91st birthday - I shall have a big slap up do to celebrate and you are all invited.

Let's see.
£5000 + £750 = £5750.
At £3 per week, that takes about 1917 weeks (= about 37 yrs.) to clear.
37 yrs. @ £25 per day = £337,625 outstanding after the £5750 is cleared.
At £3 per week, that takes about 13505 weeks (= about 260 yrs.) to clear (assuming that he stays that long!)

That's brilliant...we'll all be there at the party with our Zimmers....I'll bring the crate of vodka the students left (by mistake? Said all the stuff they left could go to charity!)

Do you propose to invite the tenant?!!!!

Oh no that can't be right, I will be over three hundred years old before he has paid it all off.

Well you needn't think you're coming to the party now Jeffrey!

Congratulations - I'm sure its a big relief.

Well done! It's nice to hear something good about our legal system.
Awarding interest payments was a particularly generous gesture. I think £3 per week on £5750 is a wopping 2.8%. Lucky you.

I daresay the begging emails will start soon, perhaps I should have kept my anonymity!

Go on then! Make us jealous! What did you blow the first week's £3 on? Out of interest, what can you get for £3 in Kuwait these days?!

59 barrels of oil (wholesale)?

it's one and a half dinars actually and, please don't send me hate mail, I can put half a tank of petrol in the 4 X 4 for that.

Or, I could buy about a 20th of a bottle of whiskey on the black market.

Wish I could drink petrol.

I'm sure someone has tried it. It would probably be the basis for a gruesome new cocktail if it wasn't so expensive. Oil on the Beach?
